Another Pink Baby Pillow!

Piece Name: Pink Baby Pillow

You will see baby pillows repeated many times on this blog. I make them because they require not too much time (2 dedicated evenings) but enough time to still show I care for the person for which I am making them. I'd love to make quilts for everyone, but until I am a "kept woman" or hit the lottery and don't have to work, that's just not gonna happen. So this gives me the same sense of making something handmade and allows me to get it done too!!!

This pillow is for my husband's sister's husband's sister's daughter (say that six times fast!) who is expecting her first child a girl. If you have seen my baby pillows before you'll notice this one is a slight departure. It is a little easier for me to make and the results are still lovely.

"Winter View" Fabric Postcard

Piece Name: "Winter View" Fabric Postcard

Once again we had a fabric postcard swap among several members of the Love Apple Quilters guild. The theme was winter with no other rules. Being a creature of Spring and Summer, I associate winter with staying warm and picturesque winter views. I combined both of those into this "Winter View" fabric postcard. The pane of glass is really tulle. The view outside includes an evergreen tree and a snowman, though it is hard to see in this picture.
