Karen asked for place mats for this months quilt block in the Bee Addicted VQB. The only requirement was that we use the large flower print somewhere in the block. In the end she will have a great collection of coordinating place mats for her family.

Grace had a birthday party this weekend and I needed something quick. I made a cute little crayon roll with vintage sheets that fits a package of Crayola Mini Twistables Crayons 10 pack. For the enclosure I just sewed in a pony tail holder (new, of course).
Packaged together with the crayons and a couple of coloring books, and you have a cute, quick, usable birthday gift!

As I was putting away all the green decorations and getting out the Easter/Spring stuff, I discovered that I had NO Easter pillows! I have had this pattern in my to-do file for a long time and decided it was time to whip it up. I got it from OrangeFlowerSketchbook.blogspot.com, but it appears that site is no longer available.It is a simple pattern, but I just love the little bunny tails! I bordered the bunnies with vintage sheets and free motion quilted around the edge. It is just finished with an envelope enclosure and holds a 16" pillow form.
This is also my entry for the March Pillow Party!

A look at the latest quilt to be quilted. All pinned and ready to go! The inspiration for the quilt design came from here.
I am loving yellow and orange right now. Maybe because it reminds me of all the wonderful citrus on the trees right now!
This little baby quilt is destined for the shop as soon as I get her finished up!

During a recent visit to my mom's house, I was able to finish up a couple of baby quilts. They are both simple, just patchwork squares of vintage sheets.
I really love how snuggly and soft the quilts turn out when using the vintage sheets. They are both backed with vintage sheets as well.

This month over at the Vintage Sheet blog you can find a new giveaway each day. Yesterdays giveaway (it is open until March 12th) is a 4 month membership to the vintage sheet of the month club. Wouldn't it be awesome to get a bundle of goodness every month right to your mailbox?
Also, stay tuned, because later in the month I am going to have something to giveaway over there as well!

I thought Mom could use a cute camera strap cover for her SLR. I used a pattern from the Trendy Babes Boutique on Etsy. It was super easy to follow and I think it turned out pretty cute! I only hope that it fits her strap!
