A special baby gift.....

Our friends, Andrea & Caleb are expecting their first baby, a little girl. I made a fun quilt to celebrate their anticipated joy.

Andrea is a Cinderella fan, so one side is a vintage Cinderella sheet and.....

Caleb is a Donald Duck fan, so the other side features blocks cut from a vintage sheet and a fun polka-dot fabric.

And of course a diaper bag. Made to order from a piece of fabric Andrea gave me.

Many blessing to the new family and prayers for the safe arrival of their baby girl.

Kitchen Accessories

Recently I completed these quilted kitchen accessories of a friend.

This runner is about 21" square with the corners angled.

Coordinating placemats, 6 of each color.

I used extra curtain panels (that match the curtain in her kitchen) 
on the back of the runner and placemats.
Making these items reversible and coordinating!

And finally appliance covers......mixer, blender & toaster.

These were time consuming, but well worth the investment.....I love the result!

Thanks for visiting,

Here are a few photos of my friend's kitchen with her new accessories.....

Playing Catch-Up

I've been working lots of hours lately and have had little time to blog or sew.

Super Tote and purse for my friend, Pauline.

Both sides of Pauline's purse.

My new warm weather bag.......I love the muted colors and the simple pattern.

I'm planning to catch up on more posts in the near future :)

Hope you are enjoying the beautiful summer God has given us!
