Cute Zippered Bag

Made this little bag today from a pattern shared on Pat Sloan's blog and the Fat Quarter Shop!  Isn't this just the cutest?

Baby Quilt

This is another finished baby quilt for church.    I think I have one more to do and I'll be caught up.  These go so quickly.  

This center panel is so cute.  Doris provided me with this one and she added the borders.  I cut all the pieces, did the quilting and put on the binding.  Check another one off!

Finished quilts

My friend picked up her finished quilt today.  I did the entire quilt in Free Motion and I love it.   She did too!  I completely forgot to take a picture of the entire quilt🙁

Recently I made a few cards.  This first one is for the June Summer Swap with Stampin Gals Gone Wild.  I really love how this turned out and plan to make a couple more.

This next one is for the June Birthday girls from that group!

This last one isn't designated for anyone yet but I just adore this stamp set.      

Post It Notes Holder

My friend, Danna Fryer, posted the cutest note holder she made from card stock.  I just had to make one too!
Of course, when I finished I thought this is pretty big.  So....I resized it to hold post it notes and shared the measurements with Danna!   Love, love!

Church Baby Quilts

This was a very productive month for me for getting baby quilts done.   3 of the tops were pieced by someone in our NP Comforts group at church and those I quilted and bound them.  I do machine binding on these as I know they will be washed a lot.  
Most of the quilting is stippled and done free motion.  This green bordered one I quilted loops and hearts in the outside border.  
I just realized I forgot to take a picture of the one I delivered last Sunday 🙁.  

Here are the other two.  
Then this last one was brought to me by a friend to add binding.   Her grandmother made this quilt in the early 1970's.  Believe it or not, it was machine quilted on a long arm!
Anyway, April was a busy month!   But I have loved every minute.  Oh yeah, I also made cards for these new babies.  Here are a couple of pics. 
Here's to an awesome May!

Hand Lettering

Have you ever wondered if you could do some fancy, smanchy lettering?   Well, since I began Bible Journaling, I've been trying really hard to do this.   NOT successfully tho.   So, I went a searching and found this lovely book and took it to Office Depot, got it spiral bound and began on my journey of learning.   If its something that may interest you, you will love this book!   Now back to practice!

Baby quilts!

I forgot to post these last week.  Two more church babies are covered in love!

Such fun!

Gift boxes and tissue holders

Some virus is going thru my house.  But I cannot stay in bed!   Of course these cuties don't require much energy or time - perfect for yucky feeling days.  I'll be giving these to some special friends I sing with.  
Hope they enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them!

UFO finish

I finally got this baby girl quilt for church finished.  It had remained borderless and unquilted for three months.  I am so glad to have it done.

Baby Quilts

Just to prove I am not sitting around all day, here are the two baby quilts I made for our church babies. I'm a bit late in making them but since I couldn't sew/quilt for a few months, I have hit the ground running.  

I also made a girl quilt for my daughters niece but I need to get a picture.  I'll post that later.  
I saw a quilt on FB that a friend tagged me on by Karlee Porter.  It has inspired me.  I am going to try my hand at "graffiti quilting" on a quilt I will call PRAY.  My New Years resolution/goal is to incorporate prayer into my daily life.  I am inspired by the film War Room.  Wow!  What an incredible movie.   Anyway, as I journey thru my prayer life, the quilt will be my gift to me.  When it's finished, I will post it.  Hugs

More cards

You know this card making is as much fun as quilting and singing.  I had to mail six birthday cards for January and thought, why not make some to replace them.  Here are today's offerings.  Excuse the shadows from the sun through the window. 

These have a really nice background so I made two!   And next....

I guess that's all for now.  Hugs and Happy New Year.  Can't remember if I already said that.  It's hard gettin' old!

Still more cards

This new hobby is so satisfying.  I'm sharing some more so I will have a record to go back to. 
Well that's all for now.  Hugs
