One Week=Two Finished Projects!

So we had our second baby shower in about a month at school this week. I don't know what was in the water there nine months ago, but I'm relieved I didn't drink it.

After making the quilt for Baby Zoe, I knew I would indeed have to make a second for Baby Levi(we think that's going to be the name, anyway). I had originally thought I'd use this quilt, but decided at the last minute it wasn't going to work. So it's folded and in the sewing closet...some day I'll finish it for the Quilt Club's charity project. Really, I will.

I'd seen quite a few zig zag quilts online and decided I wanted to try one. So, without a pattern I set out making half square triangles. I used the equivalent of 7 fat quarters worth of fabrics. It ended up being adorable, but too small, so I improvised an added a border. Here's the result:I think it turned out quite nicely. And those appliques? Shhh! Don't tell anyone, but one of them is hiding a seam that split when I washed the quilt!

Second finished project this week was these two Ticker Tape blocks for Rachel in the Fresh Comfort II Sewing Bee. Now, I'd never heard of a ticker tape quilt until I got the package of fabrics in the mail, but I'll tell you...I am in LOVE with them. Here are some finished examples. I need to make one. Seriously.
