Here is quilt #48. This is going to be for Jaxon, who will be arriving in November and will be the first child for Stephen and Jodi and my first Grandson.
The fabric is Barnyard Buddies which I had a couple of charm packs for. It took a long time to find some yardage to do the backing and the boarders. Just about every website that I visited had sold all what they had and I was getting desperate.

I guess if I like something, I better buy the coordinates before they go in retirement.

I just did a simple disappearing 9 patch for this quilt.

What I really like is the back. I decided to use up the rest of the 2nd charm pack for the boarder. I will admit, I like the back better then the front.

I sure hope Jodi and Jaxon likes his quilt. I don't have a clue if Jodi and Stephen even read my blog, so just in case you do. Be surprised anyways when you get this at your Baby Shower on Saturday.
My next post will be previews for Quilt #48.

This week I made 4 more quilted bags for customers. Pictured is only 3 of them, one of the black and creams I had already delivered to my customer.
I have made several of the bags in black and creams which seem to be a favorite, but the pirate skull bag was a fun one to make

This Pirate Skull Bag with batiks was made for Robbie. This design is a typical style for what Robbie likes and when I gave it to her, she really enjoyed it.

I hope you do too!

The batiks in purple, red and ivory all compliment the skull faces. The inside lining is the ivory batik and is complimented with 2 large black skull pockets. This bag measure approximately 17-1/2 x 17-1/2 squared.

I decided to do something different and layer the batiks piano key style up the side instead of the squared blocks version done on others that I usually do. I think it was a unique change and it came out very nice.

Been doing a lot of sewing for a gynecology office again. Here is a photo of all the pretty colors of the lap covers that I sew up for them. Nothing big about it, just hemming, which couldn't be easier.

I am off to sewing more bags today then I really need to start the baby quilt for my new grandson whose mother is having her shower in just a few weeks. Yikes! I better get going. Have a great day!
