|This cute little baby quilt is ready for gifting to a Benton Avenue grandchild.|
|Scraps were used for the back. All from Zen Chic's Fragile collection.|
Sew Sweetness, is finished. For each outer part, there is an inner part. Pockets, straps, zippers, lining - preparation is sometimes laborious. But I do love this pattern, and it is my travel bag of choice.

I spent a quick weekend in Santa Fe with some local quilters, and this project is what we worked on - Sugar Skull Art. Mine turned into a self portrait at various stages of life - acne, braces, glasses, hair. I'm still working on adding some fabric details. I think perhaps some hand quilting before the machine quilting, too.
My travel agent client - you'll never guess when and where she went to high school - wanted pillows from these two t-shirts. One of for her - the other is a Christmas present for a classmate. I used 16" pillow forms.
Finishing up projects means I can put away patterns and pieces and various piles of fabrics. And that's what I did. But in between putting things away and vacuuming, this baby/napping quilt happened. These fabrics were leftover from quilts I did for Virginia and my sister-in-law Pam. It's going to be 55" x 70". And despite the various unfinished hand projects, I think I want to hand quilt this one. Just because.
