Projects, oh sew many...

The two baby quilts using LakeHouse new collections, Little Lady and Boy oh Boy are finally finished...well, at least the tops are done, as for the quilting, that is another story.  But, they sure turned out great.  I love the little dresses and shoes on the girls.  And would a quilt for a boy be complete without frogs?  
I do like this one.  It doesn't quite show the Illinois Road as much as its pink counterpart, but adorable nonetheless.
The next project of the day was just something fun (but aren't they all??).  We took two pieces from the Taxi Collection by Timeless Treasures and decided to make a skirt out of it.  We used a pattern we bought at Spring Market from Serendipity Studios.
Getting closer to a finished project. 
The only thing left on this are the buttons and a hem.
Up next: Jungle Jamboree by Henry Glass.  It's a quick and simple panel kit made with flannels. We have a pink toned panel as well.  It's just the softest flannel.  Great to work with and adorable pictures!!
If you happen to be in Spokane, WA during the Fall Quilt Show (October 17-19) look for us there!  Can't wait to see you! Happy Quilting!!

We finished making the Frenchy Bags today. I loved using the same fabrics for different parts of the bags. I still can't decide which one I like best! Amy Butler, as always, did a great job with the pattern directions and these turned out great. If you've got the time, you could finish these in a day easily! Another great feature of this bag is that there are pockets on the inside attached to the lining panels. I love pockets!

Project Progress...

We've just mailed out block two of "I Believe in Angels" By Anne Sutton for Bunny Hill Designs. But, for the curious at heart, here are pictures of block four and five.

My last post showed the beginnings of the Amy Butler Pattern, Frenchy Bags. Well, it has been a fun project and with these latest pictures, it actually looks like a shoulder bag and handbag. I love the Joel Dewberry fabric...
This one is the handbag.

My daughter has two good friends that just had babies within the last week. One had a boy and one had a girl. She picked out the latest kid pattern from Lake House Dry Goods. The boy collection is called "Oh Boy Oh Boy" and for the girls "Little Lady." She can't wait to get them started...more on these later.
