Maddison’s Quilt

maddison_full_sizeMy neice just recently had her first child.  This is a quilt Grandma made for Maddison.  As you can see much of the fabric is from me.  It all started with the cat fabrics,  some really bright cats in various jewel tones.  And it just grew from there.  Our family is of the notion that bright colors are for babies, no pastels allowed.  Bright orange, blue, lime green,  pink,  yellow, red, purple.   The back is Hand dyed lime green Flannel.  I love the quilting with the big outlines of cats.   It was fun to be able to help choose the fabric and now to see the final project completed.  Well the photos for now, the quilt and Maddison soon. maddison_cu1

Batik Friendship Bag

Batik_Friendship_BagWe made Friendship Bags at our last Quilt Guild meeting.  It is a charming little bag that was easy to make.   Carol (who taught the class) had a bunch of them made up in all sizes, shapes and colors.  She found the directions on a site called psiquilt.com.   I thought I would share it with you as the site has all kinds of projects and ideas.  To go directly to the Friendship Bag click here: Friendship Bag.  Have Fun!
