Check out this happy camper

Finished one baby quilt and just like that I’m starting another.  I picked up two Happy Camper charm packs to make two baby quilts using the Charm Squares Baby Quilt by Elizabeth Hartman of Oh, Fransoon!

My coworker’s last day is this Friday before her maternity leave.  She is lucky enough to be a stay at home mom so she won’t be coming back….so jealous!  Unfortunately I have class tonight and tomorrow night, so I’ll be mailing this to her.


I took a picture to remember my layout, but now that I see it from a distance, I see a few changes I’d like to make.  The sashing will be white with a bright colored binding and backing.

BTW, I’m loving this Windows Live Writer for my blog posting.  So much easier to deal with pictures and built in spell check.  I’m sure there’s tons of other features I haven’t even discovered yet.

Birdie Baby Quilt

Wow, I’ve disappeared for awhile!  Holy Cow! 

I swear after June (i.e. graduation followed by a wealth of free time) my blogging habits will be much better.  Really!

Lately I’ve become obsessed with precuts especially charm packs.   I bought Birdie charm packs in anticipation that one of my two pregnant coworkers would be having a girl.  No such luck!

Instead, a good friend of mom’s daughter is pregnant and guess what?!  It’s a girl.  So I whipped this up just in time for her shower on Sunday.  I love the binding and backing on this one.




What I love even more than this watermelon backing, is the quilt rack made by my Hubby for Christmas.  The tiger maple is gorgeous…. (please excuse the furry floor)



Too bad I’ve only made 3 quilts and have given all 3 away!!
