Ok, so I had this two year old chicken block and no real plan for this quilt. I made a normal star block in a solid red to go with and I hated it. So I put back in a box. My SIL calls about a month ago to tell me she was in preterm labor and they were trying to stop it. This gives me a good reason to pull it out and think about it again. I decide I want to try something new so I made a wonky star block in the same polka dots and I loved it! Then I decided on its placement and that I wanted prairie points on the quilt too. Let me just say that I wasn't sure I was going to like this quilt the whole time I was making it, I just couldn't see it finished in my head.
I made this label on my computer then printed it on printer fabric and I love the way it turned out. I love it because it was super easy and so unique.
I am so happy with the way this quilt turned out. It is currently in the mail to the new little baby, He can have his own blanket in the NICU, and I know that they will all love it! It is so perfect for the son of my baby brother!

I started out the new year with alittle sewing project. I got an E reader from the hubby for Christmas and it needed a cover. I went to my fav LQS and got a couple fat quarters and then whipped up this cute case! It fits perfectly on the side that holds it while you are reading but the pocket on the other side is a little snug. It works though and I love it!
I just joined two new swaps and I'm so excited about them! First I am doing the quilting gallerys mug rug swap. I have been seeing mug rugs everywhere and can't wait to make a few! The other swap is a mini quilt swap on flickr. They are small projects so hopefully I can whip them up pretty quick.

This is a baby quilt for our new little one. I just fell in love with this panel from spx fabrics. My four year old picked the fabric for the pinwheels and I found that orange rick rack on clearance at Joanns. I really like the way it turned out and it was pretty simple! Now I am going to try and finish my pinwheel sampler from psiquilt. I finished the first two blocks on time and haven't seemed to get back to it yet, but I'm thinking this will be a perfect weekend to get it done!

Sorry for the dark pics but the lighting in my house stinks! I am on week two of psiquilt.coms pinwheel quilt along and this is my progress so far. I am working with an Arabella by Pat Sloan FQ bundle and I just love the colors. I bought the fabrics close to year ago and I had planned to make a pinwheel quilt with them so when Rachel announced this quilt along I knew it would be the perfect project! I'm gonna add a few extra block though because I want a bed sized quilt. Can't wait to see the new block on Saturday!
