Finished Minky Lovey

Here is my finished "lovey" experiment. I ended up using an ultra-fluffy, checker-board style of minky, rather than the traditional dot pattern. Great price--you can find it at JoAnn. It's also the softest thing I've ever felt in my life. No exaggeration.




No binding for this one. Just an easy top-stitch along the edge. This one went to my dear friend that is expecting baby #3 any day now. I hope he loves it!

Ducky Baby Quilt

Look at this adorable quilt my mom just finished! She made it for my sister Anna (who is not pregnant...yet), so she chose gender-neutral fabrics. The ducks are raw-edge appliqued with machine button-hole stitching. She used her favorite rotary cutter to get those accurate seams. Because this is the first quilt she's made for Anna, she wanted it to be extra special and spent hours hand quilting it.




We also did a pink and brown version, without the ducks, here.

Pink and Brown Lattice Quilt

A close friend of mine is expecting her first baby in a few months, and this was her shower gift.


This is the same pattern as the Ducky Baby quilt my mom made for my sister here. It's amazing how choosing different fabric and dropping the applique created a totally different design. The greens are the same, but the new quilt has a busy print background and nice dark/light contrast.

Materials:
½ yd. for face of toaster cover
½ yd. for lining the inside of toaster cover
½ yd. heavy weight fabric for interlining (you won’t be able to see this fabric)
Fat quarter for piping and about 56” of 6/32” wide cotton piping cord (or 56” of pre-made 6/32” wide piping)

Note: Use ¼” seams for basting and ½” seams for everything else.

1. Cut two A rectangles 12” by 8 ¼ " out of each of the face, lining, and interlining fabrics. Using a 6-inch diameter bowl, round the top two corners of each of the six A pieces. Make two notches 5” up on either side from the bottom and one notch in the middle on the top, as shown by the arrows in the diagram.





2. Start with one face A and one interlining A. Baste wrong sides together using a ¼ inch seam along the thr…
