Computer Bag

Annie just got a beautiful new laptop computer and while she was here this weekend asked if I could make her a case for her computer like the one I made for Dustin.  I said sure and we headed for the fabric store.  Here is what we came up with.  I am thrilled with how it turned out.  I actually like it better than I like Dustin's.  I guess you learn from your mistakes.

Wall Flower

I just finished this quilt.  I am in love with it.  The pattern was "Wallflower" by Thimble Blossoms and the fabric was Soiree by Lila Tueller.  I am absolutely in love with the fabric.  I need to buy more so that I can do something else with it.  

The quilt is for my Aunt to give as a baby gift.  It is going to her best friend's first granddaughter.  I was told that the mom likes pink, polka dots and preppy.  I grew up with her so imagine the pressure to make it perfect! :)   My aunt loves it, so now we need to wait and see what Mom and Grandma think.  Keep your fingers crossed.

All of the flower parts and the monogramed circle were all hand stitched down, and I did the quilting.  I think it took close to 20 hours.  But to me, that was 20 hours of doing something I love.  So, long story short... it was great!

This is a picture of the back of the quilt... it was pieced too.  I love the interest it gives it.  It is basically a two sided quilt now.
