Joel Dewberry True Colors Patchwork Tote

Yesterday I finished a tote bag I have been working on for a little while. This used Joel Dewberry fabric to create the patchwork look which is also quilted. It is a large tote that can hold quite a bit!

There are four large interior pockets.

As well as two side pockets on the outside as well.

Polka Dot Patch Quilt

Earlier this year I got word that another teammate from my AmeriCorps Team was expecting her first baby, gender to be reveled at birth. I then went looking for a gender neutral but adorable quilt pattern. I found this Polka Dot Patch Quilt on Craftsy and knew it was the one.

The back is a simple but colorful polka dot print. 

The front is bright and colorful, perfect for baby Charlotte who joined us just a few weeks ago.

Strawberry Sisters Carry Along

This Spring Katie's tote bag she uses for American Heritage Girls fell apart. THis is the bag that she carries her book and other meeting items in. I had seen a kit that I thought might make a cute replacement bag at the Fat Quarter Shop. It is no longer available but was called Strawberry Sisters Carry Along. The kit came with everything I needed to make the bag, but I did add a layer of interfacing to give it more structure.

Here she is ready to go with her new bag!

Zig-Zag Baby Quilts

I have had a pattern from Moda Bake Shop for the Zig-Zag Baby Quilt for quite some time, waiting for the right opportunity to come along to make it. Earlier this year one of my coworkers announced she was pregnant with twin boys and this seemed like the right quilt to make x2. I used Moda solids for the front and binding. Katie picked out a cute whale print for the back.

The first quilt had a grey binding.

The second quilt had blue binding. It also has a small whale patch.

The boys are expected to arrive any day now and we are all waiting to meet them!

Wildflower Meadow Stacked Coins Baby Quilt

A coworker announced earlier this year she was pregnant so it was time to make another baby quilt. I went to my go to pattern Stacked Coins Baby Quilt. After much deliberation I chose Wildflower Meadow by Riley Blake Designs for the fabric. 

Here is the quilt.

A closer look at the front, I love all the little animals, especially the hedgehogs.

She was having a girl but did not want too much pink but I thought the pink binding really set the quilt nicely.

The back has the accent row and the animal print.

A closer look.

And here is the front and back.
