Newest Baby Quilt

I finished the baby quilt I made for my nephew and his girlfriend. They are expecting a baby boy, so I did this one in boy colors:


I used my go-to pattern from Kate at Two Little Banshees. It really is a great pattern. This time I made "X's" in each block, and I kind of like how it turned out!

Here is the back:


Hard to see the color, but it is brown with blue polka dots.

I am pretty proud of this one, my binding is coming out much better!

I need to crochet one more baby hat, then I think I will be done and ready for my trip to NM tomorrow!

Have a great weekend everyone :)

Baby, Baby

I'm working on making baby things for my soon-to-be-born great nephew. Here is what I have finished so far:


I still need to make his quilt, a diaper wipe case, a fleece blanket with a crocheted edge, and some Pee Pee Tee Pees. I'm on a deadline, as I have to have it all done by next Friday, when I leave for NM!

I'm off to sew... have a great weekend :)

Another Baby Quilt

Yay, I finished another baby quilt!!

Here is the front:


And here's the back:



The fabric on the back is flannel, and it is so nice and soft. I am not happy with my binding, which is why I'm not showing you an up-close picture!  My mitered corners are good, but the stitching could be better.

Guess it's like they say ... practice, practice and more practice!

More Crafts

I just realized that I have made several other crafts lately that I have not posted about yet.

This frame has been all over the blogs .... here and here is where I got my inspiration from:


Another thing that has been everywhere is the candy corn wreath.. it is so easy to make and turns out really cute:



Finally, saw this wreath over at Every Creative Endeavor and made it too:



It is an excellent tutorial, and she even gives you a link to the PDF to print out the letters onto fabric.. that's right, you print the letters out on an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper... check out the tutorial for how to do it.
