2 of 4 plus 1

The month of August has been very busy in my sewing and quilting world. I have had 4 quilts that have needed to be started and finished. Here are pictures of two of them. The other two are not quite finished yet.

This first was a quilt that my aunt gave as a baby shower gift. She picked out the pattern and said that the soon to be grandma wanted only purples. This was quite a challenge for me because I am not a lover of purple. But, my sister-in-law who is said that she really liked it. Now lets hope she wasn't just being nice!

This is the back of the quilt.

This quilt my mom gave as a baby shower gift to a friend of hers. It is a ragged quilt. It is made of flannel fabrics, the seams are sewn out and then clipped which makes the quilt very fuzzy and soft. I love how it turned out.

For Mother's Day I had made my mom a travel cosmetic bag to replace the ziploc bag that she had been using. I finally got around to making the matching make-up bag for her. I am thrilled with how it turned out and I think she is too.
