Baby Shoes

This is what I have been doing instead of quilting. They are very addicting so don't say I didn'[t warn you.

Owls for one of DD friend.

They are reversable too!
These were given as part of a shower gift.
These are all I have made so far. I think I see more in my future but I need to get back to customer quilts now.
Oh, you want to make some too? This is the tutorial that I used. I haven't this one yet.
And a couple more here.

feedsack quilt blocks

This is a customers quilt top that she brought to me to baste so she can hand quilt it. I love vintage quilt tops. No reproductions in this quilt top! I hope you enjoy the feedsack blocks as much as I do. I wish you could see them in person.

Do you see the black & white fabric at 2:00? One of my favorites!Do you see the blue "H" fabric at 4:00? It is also in green and red.
The red "H" print at 12:00. The dots in blue at 6:00.
This block has the blue and green "H" fabric.

I hope you enjoyed the vintage eye candy.

Composition Caddy

I found this cute Composition Caddy Tutorial at Splenorfalls. I even completed one yesterday! I couldn't find the Mead Primary Journal that she used but I will keep my eyes open for one when the school supplies hit the stores.
Did anyone notice the quilt in the background? This is DD's quilt that I hope to get the binding on soon. I will do another post when it is finished.

RK Solids only Challenge - Finished!

Here is my finished RK solids only quilt! I have it hanging in my bathroom. Yes, I know this is not normally where you would hang a quilt but I have this big empty space that I don't know what else to do with it. I would of taken the quilt outside to take a photo but this is what our yard looks like after all the storms. I took the picture above with the generator running because our power was out at the time too.
