finished project

Finally finished my zig zag quilt! It went together surprisingly fast. The most time consuming part is hand stitching the binding on. I really wish there was an easier way!

I really like the way it came out.

This was the first time I've made a quilt big enough to have to piece together a backing. I had a hard time deciding how I was going to do it, but chose this simple solution. The actual quilting is just a zigzag fallowing the brown strips.

Bella loves to cuddle under it in our chair!

(You can also see the nifty arm chair covers I made to match!)

Fun Stuff!

So I guess you could say it has been pretty busy around here lately... I have a friend with a baby shower coming up so I've been trying to get a few things ready for her baby boy. I made a nursing cover for mom:

And a Play Mat for baby:

...with a diaper bag in the works to match the play mat.

I finished up another diaper bag for a friend of my parents who just had a baby girl. I included a picture of it stuffed so you can see how many goodies you can fit in it!

I love feeling productive!
