Geez I can’t believe it’s been so long since I posted! I’ve been busy taking a class on preparing taxes (even though I’m a CPA – company policy!)…I won’t bore you with the details. My grandmother had a quintuple bypass (open heart surgery) a week ago and is still in the hospital. I was fortunate to be able to use a buddy pass from my inlaws to fly home to Mississippi to see her for a few days. And in 6 hours I start a two day long “Policies and Procedures” class for the tax company.
I have a baby clothes quilt in the works – here is the mockup:
And I’ve also been cranking out some of Anna’s gathered clutches for Christmas presents! I so love her pattern.
What have you been up to?
Just a quick post to show you the finished baby clothes quilt I delivered Saturday! [Click on the pictures for a larger image.]
The little boy’s name is Brayden Saylor, which I put on the back. I used Elizabeth Hartman’s instructions for making the letters.
Click “keep reading” to see close-ups of the individual blocks. I’m linking up to Made by You Monday!
Here are the individual blocks:
I’ve decided to start making lists for WIP Wednesday like some other people do. (And please forgive the iPhone pictures in this post!)
In Progress This Week
- Brayden’s baby clothes quilt – I’m delivering this on Saturday and I know Sarah (Brayden’s mom) has seen my blog before, so I don’t want to spoil the surprise. I will share the two “sneak peeks” I sent her yesterday:
- Mystery Quilt at Quilters Club of America – Directions are posted every Friday. Here are my fabric groupings:
Completed Projects Ready for Quilting
Completed Projects Ready for Binding
Ok I know it’s no longer Wednesday, but it was my birthday so I’m allowed a pass, right?
I’m in the home stretch of Brayden’s baby clothes quilt and wanted to show you a (really) rough draft of the top (sorry for the cell phone picture):
And a few letters I pieced for the back, spelling out his name:
I plan to have this done by Monday night, so I’ll post the completed quilt then.
Thanks for stopping by!
I have a new commissioned quilt in the works! This will be similar in idea to my first commissioned quilt. The little boy’s name is Brayden and look at the cute clothes I get to work with!
I’ve also made a gathered clutch using Anna’s tutorial…I’m addicted to these little bags! This one is for my mother-in-law Carole. I used fabrics from her stash since she’s a quilter also!
The fabric on the cup area is High Society – Victoria by Anthology Fabrics. The bottom is some random fabric I’ve had forever, and I made the bias tape out of some pink satin-y looking fabric my grandmother gave me a while back. I also lined the cups with this pink fabric.
