Pink Baby Quilt

One of my friends that lives across the street asked if I'd make a baby quilt for her to give to one of her friends who's due in April. I had her come over and look at my fabrics and pick what she wanted. I happen to have some Heather Ross and Mary Jane fabrics out. This is what I came up with. All the fabrics on the front are Heather Ross and Mary Jane. The backing fabric is one of Jennifer Paganelli's. This quilt measures 38"x47". 

And my next quilt I post will be of the same fabrics since I need to make a baby quilt for a dear friend that had a baby 3 months ago! yes…I'm a slacker! But I love these fabrics together so I want to make another one.

Browsing my blog (which I haven't been on for a while!) I realized I never posted pictures of some quilts I made in November and December! So i'm going to post them all in this post to try and catch up! 

I found out in November that one of my college roommates was diagnosed with cervical cancer. I hadn't seen or even talked to her in 20 years or so. I was able to make a trip up to visit her and I wanted to give her a gift. I got to meet her husband and kids and spend a little time with her. I gave her this quilt. Unfortunately 2 weeks later she passed. I'm glad I got to see her when I did and I'm glad I got to meet her family. Her daughter was very interested in the quilt and asked me a bunch of questions about making it. I'm hoping she is now using this.

Backed and binded with a vintage sheets

I participated in a Holiday Bazaar on the base I live on. I whipped up some items to try and sell.

First up, a table runner. This is all made from scraps of Anna Maria Horner's various lines.

Next, a baby quilt made of leftovers from another baby quilt I made in the past. 

Another Baby quilt with leftovers from a previous quilt. 

Baby quilt #3

A lap quilt made of various blues, greens and purples

Another lap quilt made of Anna Maria Horner's various prints. Backed with an Amy Butler print. 

I sold the table runner and the blue baby quilt. 

Ok, so that's what I did all before Christmas. Now I'm trying to get into the groove again. Tomorrow I'll post pics of a commissioned baby quilt I made this week.
