Baby Boy Sean Quilt

As I said, it's "baby-palooza" with my friends!  This quilt, I'm a bit embarrassed to say, took way too long to get to mom and baby.  Mom and I met in graduate school and she had her first son at the end of July.  The month of August is one of my busiests times at work, and this just got delayed and more delayed.  It eventually made it's way to St. Louis around Christmas (I know Sean's almost 6 months at that time), but I think it was warmly received nonetheless!

Disappearing nine-patch and the baby's name - simple, but cute.  I used "Max and Whiskers" charm pack for this one!

Baby Girl Ellie Quilt

Well, it's been quite a break from blogging now hasn't it? I'm not really sure where time has gone, but it's flown by...that's for sure! Work has been crazy busy, and lots of things have come up over the past few months. I wouldn't even know where to start. Needless to say, I haven't had much time for quilting, but have needed to fit some in, as so many people I know are expecting or just had kids!

So, recently it's been the era of "Baby Quilts". Here's one that was delivered to a friend from culinary school who just had her second child!

I decided to play around with some disappearing nine patch blocks and this what I came up with. It's now my "go-to" quilt design for babies. It's not too big, so perfect either for a playmat while they're small, or a car seat blanket!

Let's just say there's more where this came from...details soon.
