WIP Wednesday

Finally a finish! This lovely pink and black wonky cross has the binding all sewn on it now!

I'm posting this on the flickr pool for "I'm just a guy who quilts".  It was inspired and based on his tutorial for a baby quilt.

Binding reads "Ps I Love you"

Diaper Bag

I made a diaper bag for a friend, who is due soon, using this tutorial.  I think it's a hip mom diaper bag, and modern!
A peek inside at the pockets
The skull fabric lining, to give it a personal touch for her.

The tutorial was easy to follow, and look how cute this is! Can easily double as a purse! :D  Glad I tried this out!!

Aren't stars a blast? :)

I decided to hop on the quilt a long bandwagon, and join the supernova quilt along at freshly pieced.  My husband, Kurt, and I are doing it together.  Here are the fabrics we picked as our attempt #1 (we will leave the fabric out and see if we still like it by the next step. hehe)

I made myself a little something...

I made myself a scripture case.  After making one for my husband and stepdaughter - figured it was time for mine.  I used lovely sewing fabric I got from Veggie Hunter in a giveaway <3 (I still have some left.  What else to make myself??  A tote maybe??)

Here it is:

WIP Wednesday

      Today's WIP Wednesday finds me working on a pattern for a book like diaper clutch, that I plan to sell in my Etsy shop with my sister. (Poor etsy shop is sparce with listings atm!)  I have made two diaper clutches so far, and I think it's almost perfect now.  But, luckily, I can use my "testers", so I don't feel I'm wasting any fabric! :D  If anyone else would like a highly discounted "tester", email me!  I will tell you what flaws, if major or minor (one just has a longer velcro strap, but I'm not happy with it being longer, so it's imperfect.  Yes, maybe I am a perfectionist....) Now for some pictures! :D

I am also working on a quilt for my friend Becca - a pink and black wonky cross quilt. One row sewn so far!  If you look, you can see the skull fabric. She is very punk rock, so I needed to make a hip, truly one of a kind quilt for her.  I'm excited for this, because she has loved the peaks so far!!

First Bee Block

     I'm so excited! I got this lovely block today from Linda of Stray Stitches.  I love it! I asked my fellow bee members for stars, or wonky stars.  I am so excited to see the rest of their takes on my fabric.

Linda also included a nice postcard and note.  Thank you so much Linda! This is up on my design wall, and I smile when I pass it and see it!!

Rose Quilt

      Even though I felt like I was making a barbie quilt , this floral rose quilt is turning out really nicely!  It is half done, and I am liking it.  The person who will receive this is a HUGE rose fan - so it's perfect for her!  Now to finish the other half.  (If you look closely, you can see the tiny 1 inch squares).
