Quilt 18

This is my first baby quilt sized quilt. So it’s approximately 36x36. Since it was so small, I was able to pin it on my countertops. This little baby quilt is for my new niece or nephew. My sister said she wanted a grey and white quilt. This is not a jelly roll quilt. It’s random grey and white fabric I had. 

I didn’t follow a pattern and just sort of figured it out in my head. However, I cut my side pieces too short, so that’s why I say it’s approximately 36x36. It’s actually a bit smaller 

Quarantine 2020 Quilts

Quilts 15, 16 and 17 I made during the Covid-19 Quarantine of 2020. 

Quilt 15 I started in 2018 and intended on giving it to my niece for a Christmas gift. Well I never got around to finishing it. I hadn’t even finished the quilt top. The quarantine was the perfect time to quilt as we were stuck at home. 

I love the floral backing print on this quilt. My 7 year old daughter wants to keep it for herself! We do love how this one turned out!

Quilt 16 I made for a friend. Yet another Jelly Roll Race Quilt. I love this Moda Catnip fabric. 

Quilt 17 I made for my 10 year old son. Somehow i have never made him his own quilt! I love this black and white jelly roll print so it seemed like the perfect print for a 10 year old boy. He can hopefully enjoy it for years to come! 

Quilt 14

Quilt 14 I made as a baby gift for my nephew. I gave it to him at Christmas 2018. 

I love the ease of this quilt.  It uses a jelly roll, but gives it a different look than the Jelly Roll Race quilt I love. 

Quilt 13

Quilt 13 I made as a wedding gift for my cousin Susan. 

She was married in October of 2018.

I am a big fan of Jelly Roll Race Quilts! 

Quilt 12

The 12th quilt I made, I finished some time around September 15, 2018. If by chance anyone stumbles upon this post, I am blogging it simply because I want to keep a record of all of the quilts I have ever made. Do people read blogs anymore? Do people read this tiny blog anymore?

This little quilt turned out so cute. I ended up gifting this to my niece for her birthday.

Simple Succulent Diaper Cake

My sister chose to accent her baby girl's nursery with succulents and cactus. So for her baby shower, we hopped on that theme and made her a simple diaper cake with accents she could use in the nursery. I made a simple diaper cake and accented it with fake succulents I found at Target. So very simple, but so very cute!!! 

And don't you LOVE the cupcakes my mom and sister made!!!!

My Favorite Tote Bag Pattern

This Caravan Tote & Pouch Pattern from Noodlehead is my favorite tote bag pattern! These two totes I made probably two years ago, but if I need to make a cute tote bag for a gift, this is my go-to pattern!

When I made this, I only had one zipper, so only one tote got the front zippered pocket! 

One of my favorite features of this tote, is the front snapped pocket. This pattern also includes one of my favorite pouch patterns! The pouch also has this front snapped pocket!

My first tote I made using this patter was probably 5 years ago and it quickly became my sewing tote! Don't you love a good tote bag!!!!
