Brittni's Diaper Bag

My daughters sister in law needed a new diaper bag.

So of course, I had to make her one! ;D

Brittni purchased the fabric and shipped it to me from Arizona.

She chose the sweetest fabric!

These birds are just AMAZING!!

There are tons of divided pockets and bottle pockets.

My friend Marilyn Cowan designed this bag over 40 years ago.

She revived the pattern for me when I had my first son 14 years ago and then again when my girls had their babies .

I am still trying to figure out how to make the pattern available to y'all!

It's all cut from large pattern pieces.  

I will let you know a soon as I figure it out!

If you would like a copy of the pattern, please let me know and I can mail one to you :)

Kira's Quilt

I have such talented customers (and friends)!

Kira requested arrows in this quilting.

I did my best to throw in an arrow here and there ;)

I really have so much fun quilting in a free graffiti style!

So many possibilities!!

Sunday Book Review

You know what lots of books means?  LOTS of quilting!!! 
It's time for the #SundayBookReview!

The Girl Who Stopped Swimming by Joshilyn Jackson. I liked it.  The heroine was a QUILTER!! Sad story with heartwarming resolution. 👍👍

Killing Lincoln by Bill OReilly & Martin Dugard. Very interesting. Lots of information I didn't know. I didn't love the audio book as it was narrated by O'Reilly and he seemed to be yelling at me the whole time. No Bueno! 👍 for Bills's reading, 👍👍 for the book. 

Emerald Green & Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier. 
Super fun time travel trilogy! 👍👍

My review of Firefly Lane and Fly Away by Kristin Hannah shifted as I read. This series was an in depth look into a life long relationship of two women. I ended up loving it!  The books are long and tell you everything. Great characters!  Enduring love, forgiveness and redemption. 👍👍

What are you reading?

Nancy's Camping Quilt

Each month the Morganson's over at Stitches & Sew Forth have a $29 Mystery Quilt Kit available.

Becky designed this one a while back.

One of my customers, Nancy, finished it and brought it to me for quilting. :)

It is such a fun, sweet quilt for one of her grandsons.

I love quilting this square in square design.  So fast and so fun!

Sunday Book Review

Up for review this week is Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella.  
Honestly, I didn't expect to like this book, I'm not sure why. As it so happens, I absolutely LOVED it!  It was funny and clever. The romance was good, the twists were good and the characters were ...(what's a word for enchanting and delightful that doesn't sound as stuffy and pretentious as either of those?)...I loved the characters. They were flawed with good hearts and kind intentions.  I am a sucker for personal growth and redemption. This book had both in spades. LOVED it!  Read it! 👍👍
(I am in the middle of #TheGirlWhoStoppedSwimming. I am enjoying it 😍)
