FNSI Results: Blankets and Gift Set

A new finished gift set in adorable animals! This fun animal-print fabric is so sweet.  Paired with either a green bib and onesie set or a yellow bib and onesie set.  I also finished up more light dog blankets and an airplane set...the first of each went out to Indiana for two new bouncing baby boys, so I needed to make others.

 Hope others that joined FNSI were productive!

January 20: Friday Night Sew-In

The first Friday Night Sew-In of 2012!  It is my New Years resolution to try and make as many of these this year as possible.  Sometimes I forget, or am too tired, but I'm going to mark my calendar nonetheless.

January 2012 - Three New Quilts!

My goal is to get up some new quilts throughout the year.  Here are THREE - yipee! Three new quilts!!

1) Today we have done a vintage feedsack fabric blues, greens quilt.  It is quilted on the diagonal through the squares and has a new turquoise, purple, and white plaid back. 

2) We also finished an adorable - in my opinion - girl quilt.  The top is cotton squares in various pastelly-colored fabrics with little girls playing, jumping, watering plants, playing ring around the rosy.  Just very sweet fabrics!  We put a plaid pink flannel border and backed it in pink with white polkadot flannel fabric, so it is soft and cuddly.

3) We bought the Sugar-Pop fabrics designed by Liz Scott for Moda Fabrics...and it is a great set of brighter colors. No"baby fabrics" but makes for a great baby quilt ot lap quilt for an adult....

We are planning for an innovative, productive year and we're starting off with a new quilt - a log cabin style flannel quilt in dog fabrics.  Measures at a 38" square.  A baby crib quilt or a lap quilt for the dog lover you know.....What do you think?
