I love buying charm packs because they have bits of a whole collection. But I always end up sticking them in a drawer and forget to use them. When I found Ruby by Bonnie and Camille again, I knew I'd feel guilty for cutting it up. So I bordered it with 2 inch sashing and Ta Dots for the corners to gain some size and made four to a block. Then sashed those blocks too. I will always love aqua and red, it's so cheery.This is couch size, as all my kids are older and no one is stuck in a crib. So it is perfect for curling under and reading a book or just for a snooze.

I made this ticker tape quilt for my daughter's best friends new baby girl Hailey Faith. It has pieces from quilts I made for my own daughters and grandsons.
My non-OCD quilt. No measuring, stabilizing, or perfecting this quilt. Very wonky in some spots.I actually hung it upside down. Can you tell I got tire of sewing itty bitty pieces? The sizes got bigger and bigger...

Here's baby's quilt I made for my sweet niece Audrina. She is due to come home any day now. My sister said she is going to be girly girl and that it had to be pink. It's more salmon than pink but definitely girly. I used the same Mod Circle pattern and Ta Dot for the leaf pattern.
|The back inspired me to make another quilt, maybe a Kate Spade ( brown/white/pink orange!) insipred quilt or Mosimo type colored zig zags. Will follow up.|
|The heart is tell her how much I love her and hope she come home soon (born 1/21/12 at 24 weeks). I think I will add a prayer in her quilt label.|

LRstitched you can find here . The Moda Bakeshop featured Mod Circles quilt is a wonderful way to use the tiniest pieces (templates included in tutorial). It's 11:23pm, other wise I would have photographed this baby outside, however it's raining and gray skies in Dallas for at least a day.(Ignore the baby milk stained ottoman!)

The third quilt I ever made. 1993-4 for my niece Alex. My sister is in the hospital with a difficult pregnancy and I was surprised to see this. She brought it with her as a comfort. It is hand sewn, appliqued, and quilted.The little aprons are pieces of cotton lace trim. The hands are pieced of muslin (what did I know!) I was glad to capture a couple of pictures since it has minimal wear and tear.
