A few finishes

A dear friend quilted this for me! I finished the binding and it has been donated to a local home for children.
It is a jelly roll race quilt. I love the bright solids. Here is the back. I just used up some random fabric I had in my stash and I tried to pick boy-ish fabrics in case a boy quilt was needed.
I was invited to a co-worker's baby shower. I had the top of this quilt pieced already. I found the cute floral print for the back and added her name. I love how this turned out and my coworker seemed pleased as well. I need to keep several pieced baby quilt tops in hand for just such occasions! 
Also a nice bonus--I used what I had on hand and I quilted it myself! 

I found this doll pattern on a facebook group. I thought it was so cute! They are pretty quick to make too.
I ran across this bat pattern from It is the sweetest bat!! I made this one for my daughter. She has now requested that I make one for each of her friends. She has already picked out all the fabrics! I better get busy!!
I made a tote bag. I read a million different tutorials and patterns and then decided to wing it. I messed up on the straps, but maybe I can buy some big funky buttons or something to cover up my mistake. I was gifted a big bag of home decor fabrics. The only thing I can ever think to make with that type of fabric is tote bags. I need to come up with some other ideas because I barely used any of the fabric to make this tote bag. 
The other side:
I finally put my blocks together for last year's mystery quilt for my guild. I loved making this pattern. However I am not in love with my color choices. I am happy to have the top together though and 
maybe someday you'll see it completely finished!
