A Baby Quilt!

Today I went to a baby shower for my friend Renee who worked in our office last summer.  She and her hubby are expecting their first baby in les than a month and they do not know if the baby will be a boy or a girl.  Since all of my baby quilt UFOs are gender specific I had to start from scratch.  I had been wanting to use Mary’s Happy Blocks pattern for awhile so this was a perfect opportunity.  What a fast & fun pattern!  I made this quilt start to finish in less than a week!  The finished quilt measures 40” x 48”.  I like to give larger baby quilts so they grow with the child. 

Do you think perhaps my mojo is returning?  I sure hope so!

I’m Sewing Again!!!!

YAY!!  It’s been a busy summer for me with very little time in the sewing room.  However yesterday I decided to spend the day in the studio reacquainting myself with my sewing machine :)

Back in July I saw this pattern and printed it right off.  These little bags are just the cutest!!  I’m so glad to be back to sewing and I have plans to keep the momentum going.


I was able to make 3 bags from 4 1/2 FQs.  I see more of these bags in my future :)
