Baby Shower

The baby shower was lovely. It was a beautiful day and the decoration ended up matching the flowering trees. Here is a terrible photo of the paper lanterns and paper garland that I made. It looked way better in person, I promise.

Adorable and delicious cupcakes.

And the quilt was adored by all.

And now for some more works in progress.

This has been sitting in a box FOREVER. I’ve had the blocks made for a while and just never put them together. This is 12 of the blocks and I have 9 more. I think I am just going to turn it into two small quilts instead of one larger quilt.

This second quilt top is my own design and I love how it turned out.

That’s all for now. I plan on having a lot to post while I am on break so check back again soon!


I made an entire quilt in 6 hours!

It was a baby quilt, but considering this is only the second one I’ve ever made, I’m pretty proud. A friend’s baby is turning one this week, so I made this for her birthday. Just a simple six inch triangle pattern, but I think it’s so sweet and pretty. I remember as a kid, we had a quilt my mom had made from old clothes when she was about thirteen. I loved looking at all of the different fabrics and patterns. I hope Clara (the baby) feels the same way about her new quilt.

Dear Blank Cards from Sapling Press

While reading one of my favorite blogs, Design Work Life, I came across a post about these cards from Sapling Press. They’re really very clever and brought a smile to my day. Here are just a few of my favorites, but you should visit their shop and see them all.
