The zip pouch finish was a day to celebrate. I got them all done and was very pleased. Pleased that not only were they all finished and three weeks before I needed them but also that they looked good. What a relief. From the box I laid them all on the counter so I could get a good picture and then we packaged them up in groups so they were ready to hand out as thank you gifts. People were surprised and pleased I think to get a hand-made gift that really reflected the Girl Scout theme. Thanks to the Robert Kaufman Company we were able to commemorate the 100 years of Girl Scouting celebration in a very visual way. The zip pouches were finished!
Baby baby, here’s the next quilt. I love how soft this one feels after it’s come out of the dryer. I used my tumbler die and cut them from a bundle of fat quarters that I bought at Joann’s. I actually bought two stacks when they were on sale with the intent to make a baby quilt. I actually like the way it turned out although I keep wondering if the red is too “in your face”. Maybe I should have used 2 different bundles so there was more contrast. It’s hard to know. I also found yardage of one of the prints at Hancock’s and decided on that for the backing and bias border. I’m really glad that I made that choice. It looks good on the back. The border has all the colors in the quilt top and really pulls it all together.
At the end of the day this was a success. I’m going to try this again with some gender neutral fabrics and see how it looks. The size is perfect for a baby quilt. Either on the floor, in a crib or a car seat. Neither too big or too small.
It’s finally summer here in Edmonds. We stopped for ice cream cones and headed to the beach. Peaceful and we enjoyed!
I haven’t had too much time to sew this last week because I was out of town. The band did a fabulous job but did not win. It was fun to see a few snippets of them on the Billboard Music awards last night however. They did show a montage of the bands and their road trips so Hotels was there. Very cool.
This week the sewing has been baby bibs. I had lots of fun doing these. They were quick and easy. I know there are lots of free patterns out and previously I just copied a pattern that I had here but I actually used McCalls 6108. It was fast and easy and the proportions were perfect. I used some fun fabric and lined them with terry and the Mom was pleased. Here are the little girl versions and I’ll post the little boy versions a bit later today.
