New Things (and Procrastination)

Pencil pouches
Pencil pouches
I'm supposed to be finishing a quilt that my sister in law asked me to make for her nanny, but instead I'm making these.  My oldest helped piece the solids version.  He wanted to give it to his Shelf Elf, but changed his mind and decided to keep it--ha ha!  You can find the tute here



I made these two pillows a while ago, but forgot to blog about them, oops!  These were a custom order from one my Facebook followers.  I really love how the "love" one came out!  The background is Moda crossweave in blue/white.  The "ward" one is Kaufman's quilter's linen.  Both appliques are white felt.  
This is another one I forgot to blog about!  Some friends of mine received some bad news--the kind of news where there are no words of comfort--so I decided to make a quilt for them.  This one took me only 2.5 days from start to finish since I was extremely focused on getting something to them quickly.  I was super happy with the results.  I love simple patterns, they have such a clean look!  This pattern can be found here.

i hope your friends are doing ok. i think the holidays are the worst time for sad things. it is so kind and thoughtful of you to give them such a loving gift. i bet they were touched. and seriously, you started and finished in two days! my hat is off to you...
i assume there was a fair amount of caffeine consumed and possibly a little cocaine to finish it so quickly... ;) kidding kidding! xx
