Pinwheel Quilt

I was actually able to finish a baby quilt! My awesome friend, Kelli, gave me the inspiration to make this Pinwheel quilt. She recently made one for one of her friends and posted a picture of it on Instagram. Her quilt looked amazing & she said it didn't take too long to make because she cut each block of fabric 10 x 10. So, making the quilt really did go pretty fast. My husband's cousin, Courtney, found out she was having a baby girl. So far I haven't had the opportunity to make a quilt for a little girl. This quilt was a lot of fun and it took me out of my color schemes 'comfort zone' that I usually use.  I sure hope this quilt will keep little Viviana nice and warm once she arrives in October. Well, I'm not sure she'll need any extra help staying warm since she will be living in Tampa, Florida. Maybe it can be her tiny beach blanket? :)

Scrappy Alphabet

A couple of weekends ago, I got a burst of energy on a Saturday evening. So I decided to use up some fabric scraps & extra batting. I ended up making a magnetic alphabet set for Milo. I put a tiny magnet inside each of the letters, sewed them up & then cut around them using pinking sheers. It was nice to be able to begin and end a crafty project in one evening!
