Oh Baby!

So much going on this week!  I finished up both the quilts I was binding and now just have to get out to take pictures of them. 

Before diving in to something new I made a couple of "little" things. Our magnificent BMQG President, Laurie, is having a baby soon so we wanted to shower her with some handmade gifts.  Not an easy thing to do since she's been busy making her own things, pregnancy hasn't slowed her down one bit.  It was also tough because she doesn't know what she's having but if I learned anything from my own kids it's that you can never have enough burp clothes!  I dug into my stash for some of her favorite fabrics and added some trims and ribbons.  It was so much fun to mix and match.  I probably wouldn't have stopped but I ran out of diapers! 
I think this is my favorite, Ann Kelle Urban Zoologie Whales with a wavy border.  So perfectly preppy: )

Somehow I lost my iPhone case this week so I also whipped this up using some hello luscious scraps leftover from my twister quilt.  It is based on this fabulous iPhone pouch tutorial by Amy at Made During Quiet Time.  This month's BMQG meeting included a much anticipated trip to Sew Fresh Fabrics where I actually got to hang out with the adorable Amy AND shop for fabrics.  She did a fabulous write up of all Peg & Becca, the ladies behind Sew Fresh,  have to offer so I'll just show you a few things I picked up...

I think I was feeling a bit dotty;-)


  1. I loved the burb cloths you made! I didn't even notice that you went nuts with the polka dots - too funny! I will have to check out Amy's iPhone case - thanks for the link!

  2. I love the burp cloths and those cloth diapers seem extra soft. Thanks again!
