A Gift for Baby Eve

I'm finally finished with this gift for a sweet baby girl.

I'm a big fan of tumbling block quilts and and I think the pattern works well with a scrappy look.

I did some straight-line quilting on this one. I chose a solid soft pink for the back and I like the geometric pattern created by the quilting lines.  

I paired this mini quilt with a couple of embellished onesies.

Gift is ready to be packed up and shipped out. It's about time!

I'm almost finished with another quilt for a new baby. I'm been sewing up a "storm" (ha ha)... maybe because I haven't left my house in two whole days due to the crazy blizzard that hit on Wednesday. It's bright and sunny now but the side-streets and alleys are still packed with snow and I simply can't get my car out of my garage. As you can imagine, my kiddos are going a bit stir-crazy. And to make matters worse, we were without phone, cable or internet for 24 hours! We had to get creative with our activities yesterday and it was actually a good thing for us. 

In addition to completing two quilts, I just finished up a fun project for my daughter's room. I'll probably post about it early next week and will even try to put together a little tutorial for you. I'm really excited about this one. Don't tell anyone but it's a knock-off on a Pottery Barn Kids item. I feel a little guilty about ripping off the idea but I have the supplies and know-how, so why not save myself $75? Do you love the PB Kids catalog as much as I do? I've been studying the latest one and have added about 100 projects to my "to sew" list. Lots of great inspiration there.

Have a fabulous Friday and a great weekend. I'll be back on Monday.
