I decide for Kyler I would make a quilt like my Grandma would have made,
 he would have been her 28th great grandchild (I think).When she passed away 
I took over for her in making baby quilts for all the babies born in our family.
 She used to hand cut all the blocks from old clothing. 

I used some older material I had and some from my mothers fabric closet.

I also did some chunky hand quilting, I still love an old fashion quilt!

More Totes

Okay this is my last batch of totes for a long while!
I made these for someone to give as gifts and although I had a 
great time picking fabrics I would rather make quilts.

The close-up shows the different linings in each one.

The chevron bag is actually an upholstery material. I wasn't sure 
how it would hold up so although I wash and dry all the material
 for the totes I did this material twice, it held up very well.
I hope the giftees like theirs!

Liam's Charm Squares Quilt Redux

I needed to make a fast baby quilt and found a great pattern by
Elizabeth Hartman , Charm Squares Quilt Redux

I did some simple straight line quilting and it is on the way to baby Liam.

This was a quick easy pattern and I will definitely use it again.
