Granny Along

I haven't posted on this site in quite some time.  Mostly because I've been maintaining a blog for our Moda Club.  I'm very excited about this Granny Along though.  It's had me digging into the bottom of my scrap bin!   I've found fabrics I'd forgotten about.  I've been ironing, cutting into blocks for this or folding and stacking larger pieces.  Each block is meant ot look like a crocheted granny square.

I'm hoping to make mine Queen size for one of my daughters.

So much of what I have been working on these days is for the store.  But I'm going to try to be better about posting more frequently.

Lunch Bag Link

At the last quilt retreat I was at, several of us made Ayumi's lunch bag
Ayumi, blogs at The Pink Penguin.  She is a favorite of mine.  So creative!  She has other awesome tutorials that you should check out.   Monica from the Happy Zombie made some and did a fun post about it.  Check her's out here.

 They also make great small knitting bags.

This is my latest one!   Love the sheep fabric.  (My friend had made this with some red sheep fabric.)
I'm thinking about making some with cute feature fabric, as lunch bags for the girl that I work with.
Hope this inspires you to give this tutorial a try.

I first fell in love with this Michael Miller baby quilt pattern....and then I found some fabric....

The top was completed at a recent quilt retreat.  Looking for some time to get the back done.  This is going in my "grandma box" for some day.

Fun little tote

This Springtime Tote is just too sweet! Great tutorial by Suzanne at Just Another Hang Up. Worked up quickly....have plans to make another one today.

New Moda Fabric

Working on this Walk in the Woods Quilt. It's my first wonky block. I could see making this pattern again someday with black instead of red (to look like a frame) and a family photo in the many possibilities....for sure a pillow top!

But, for now, I'm just enjoying this quilt, as I await Spring, and walks of my own.
