This past weekend and the beginning of the week have been crazy. I was out of town and didn't have much time to sew until last night and today.

I am finally quilting my mom's photo quilt pictures to be added later due to the secret :)

WIP Wednesday

I am almost finished with my brother's Military quilt. I made this out of his old BDUs. I only need to add his name tape and US Air Force tape and I will get it in the mail. I plan on having it done in the next 30 mins :)

Finish it Friday

Just finished with my brother's military quilt, this was made with his old uniforms. I guess it is technically not finished, I need to add one of his name tapes to it and then I will mail it off. :)

Made a messenger bag for my Sister in law out of my brother's uniforms

Under the flap, used one of the pockets off the uniform

There were all made from scraps left over from a quilt I am making him with his old uniforms. I still need to work a little more on that : )

Loopy Line

 Here is a baby quilt I made for a friend of my husband's, who is expecting any day now, and used loopy line on the rows.

WIP Wednesday

 Today I almost finished a baby quilt I started yesterday for a friend of my husband's. His wife is about to have a little boy. I'm not sure I like the binding, it's white and the sashing of the quilt is an off white, I should have made my own binding, but I hate that step for some reason......

My little helper :)

This is my daughter's quilt which is the same pattern as the one above. I used Twirl by me and my sister and I think it is so cute. It only needs binding.
 I started cutting the "Bricks" for my brother's quilt last night. I am using his old military uniforms. I haven't decided how to use patches and buttons and other things.

These are the fat quarters I am using along with his old BDUs, some of the bricks also

I have been thinking about this little quilt for sometime, I found out I was having a little girl and just knew I needed to make a quilt for her. I bought some fabric about 3 months ago (mind you my daughter was already 3 months by then) I found it on ebay, My sister and me TWIRL, so cute! Anyways, this last weekend I decided I better get to work, before my baby doesn't need a baby quilt anymore. Here it is. Just needs binding.
