Now a baby quilt

I have been wanting to make one of these quilts since I first saw the pattern on Moda Bake Shop and now I have my chance. I modified it just a bit in that I left off one row and shortened the length. It's now 36 x 36 which I think is a great newborn size. This version can be made in like one day. A great baby gift.

Who doesn't love babies? I have two friends expecting. You know what that means? There should be another soon. . . they always come in threes. Anyway, I found this wonderful gift idea. A baby kimono (tutorial here) that was featured on Quilt Taffy. I've made one for a boy and one for a girl and I personally can't wait to see fat chubby baby legs peeking out from the bottom of this with little booties on. Hmmm. . . I am setting out to learn knitting perhaps I could knit some matching booties. . . more on that later.

And jeans I made my daughter from Toni Coward's Fancy Pants pattern. So fun! I've made others and will get those pics uploaded soon.

Busy Busy Busy

I've had several commissioned jobs this year already. Consequently I've been quite busy quilting. Here are a finished a t-shirt quilt and a memory quilt.

Two closeups of the memory quilt:

and the back, I used some more squares to complement the back: This is the t-shirt quilt:
And a jacket I made my daughter over Christmas. I am just now getting pics loaded. I've been a bit behind. LOL! This pattern is from Make it Perfect by Toni Coward. A very easy pattern and I love this jacket. It's reversible!
