I started working on some baby clothes. Girl baby clothes. This adorable pattern is from Peek-A-Boo. I worked it up with some orange Briar Rose strawberries and a soft orange knit. It didn't take too terribly long, but since it takes about a yard of knit it definatly isn't cheaper to make your own.
I also made some quick Just Hatched leggins from Made by Rae. One with fancy bow cuffs from a tutorial I found on Pinterest and one with little knee patches.
I picked up these adorable Grey Abbey fabrics about the same time Kelby Sews posted her Easiest Chevron tutorial. It sewed up very easily and I quickly had it quilted and bound. My first try at FMQ flowers and I'm rather proud of them! I don't have a plan for this quilt yet, I may put it up on my etsy shop soon.
I cut all the fabric all at once. Touchdown and Scout needed 4" strips and churn dash needed 4.5" strips so I cut one of each from about 20 half yards. I power sewed all the footballs in one week and have been slowly working on pieces for the churn dash. I almost started strip piecing for Scout this afternoon but I started work on a different project.

Another little project I've been working on is the Lua Sleep Sack. I decided to try quilting and love the effect. It's like a quilt dress for a baby. I can't wait to try it out on Little Peanut in our Wyoming winter. Here is a close up of the buttons. I have enough fabric for three more. I may give two to some friends who are having boys in the coming months. Boys are so hard to sew for.
I picked up this thick navy and white decor weight fabric from Joann's and knew I wanted to make a Weekender. I've been wanting to make one for awhile and the inspiration just hit to get it done for our little Memorial day weekend trip. I have the outside all put together. I somehow could not get a 1/2 inch seam allowance with the piping, so the center strip and the outside panels didn't fit together properly. I ended up folding it over on one side and there is soe puckering, but it was better than ripping out a ton of seams. I need to finish the lining tomorrow so I can sew it in during my nightly tv watching.
But my biggest accomplishment these past few weeks? I finished my queen sized rugby stripe quilt. But that I will save for another post!
