The status of my "quilt top a weekend" for my New Years resolution? I got one done! Plus some....I finished four new beach bags, two each of a fabric set, six cell phone cases, and a woodland fabric girls baby blanket, which will be part of a set. I made 4 blankets, but only top-stitched one. The other three will be top-stitched next weekend. But, first things first, the quilt top. It is a fantastic "beachy" fabric called "Lucy's Crab Shack" by Moda fabrics; it is designed by Sweetwater. I originally planned this as a baby / crib quilt, but since I had two charm packs, I thought on this would be a perfect fabric line for an adult lap quilt. So the re-working skills came out. I did the layout with my original pieced parts and completed the now-larger adult lap quilt / toddler quilt. Since the weekend has been all-rain, I took the picture on our queen-size bed. Once it gets to my mom for borders and backing, it will be a great size. The colors include, navy, pink, lime-green, orange, and teal:

I had these tote bags in pieces, but completed the bottom seam, put the bag together, and top-stitched. I make my beach totes reversible - so yes, two bags in one! The first is a beautiful serene mint-green and pastel pink floral with a "bubble dot" liner. The second is a brighter graphic animal design in brown, lime green, bright green, pink, and a bright coral. The liner is a bright stripe that includes yellow and teal, minus the brown.
Here is the adorable woodland blanket - can't wait to see the completed set when mom makes the matching onesie and bib:
And last but not least, my new cell phone cases:
Happy Sunday night - I'm rooting for Houston.....
