Happy Birthday To My SIL! (Posted a little late...)

 This year for all the girl's birthdays in my family I made a table runner and an apron! :) This is my sister in law Ginger's present!
She loved the happy colors, the runner is made with birdie fabric from Moda.  :)

Fabric from Germany

Recently we had an old friend from when we lived in Germany come to visit! She asked me what I would like as a present, and of course I asked for some fabric that we couldn't get here in the states.  Apparently it was a little difficult she said because most of the good fabric is made in America! :)  Anyway, she was able to bring me a cute fabric set and I love it! :) Thanks Cati!

This is Cati before we went white water rafting in Jackson Hole, Wyoming

 The cute fabric bundle!
 A close up. Don't you love the little birds?
I love the hearts too! :)

Another Birthday Quilt :)

Here is a sneak peak of my niece Alexis' first birthday quilt! I love Eden by Lila Tueller! It is so beautiful.  I picked out a purple Kona solid to go with the charm packs that I had. It has been really fun piecing it together.  I almost have the top done.  I have to get moving because my nephew Max turns one two weeks later and he needs a birthday quilt too! :)

4th of July Project

Today I made some 4th of July bibs for my nephews and niece! I made each baby a chenille bib, and I made some other ones without chenille too. I can't wait to see them being patriotic! :)

Learning to Quilt

These blocks are from a sampler class that I took online. I love the colors! I decided to start a new blog just for my quilting. I am learning slowly, but surely. Right now I am also working on a quilted birthday present for my mom! (Pictures to come soon!)
