Eye Spy

My baby cousin just had a baby! I finished this quilt (only 4 days late!) during Snowed in Weekend.  I am so smitten with the Moda fabric which is Love U.  David said it was too much cute and said that in 10 years we have to have a boy!
This is the bag that I made to ship the quilt in.  I put 3 pockets on it so hopefully Mama will be able to use it.

This is the whole quilt! I used the panel from Love U and one charm pack.  There is a light pink binding (which is still my least favorite part of quilting!)

On the left is the back of the quilt and the right is the front.  In all of the letter panels I free motion traced a shape.  The cupcake is by far my favorite!

I had to include a picture of these owls! Too Cute!

The back.  Orange is my favorite color so I included a lot of it.  
Hopefully she is able to use it with the baby.  It'd be really great to play "I spy" with it when she is a little older.  You can use the letters, the pictures, and the border to point things out.  It's a little big for a newborn but it'll grow with her.

Mike blogged his first blog so I thought we should update here!
We've been cooking a ton, playing video games, and quilting! 

Sorry for the poor picture quality.  The weather hasn't been quite warm enough to venture into the cold without these quilts wrapped around us!

I finished two quilts around Christmas time. 
Here is David's.  It's stressful working on a quilt for someone else! I'm glad to have it done and he loves it. 
I think next time I do a 9 patch design I'll do it off of a soduku game. That way nothing will repeat! 

  This is my Christmas Quilt. 
It's small but juuust big enough for me to cuddle under! I used the raw edge tutorial over at Cluck Cluck Sew and then worked on an overall design that I liked. Instead of quilting it I tied it. The binding on this one is almost perfect! Five quilts in and I'm getting better each time!

I'm holding off on starting a new quilt even though I'm dying to do one!
