Little Airplane Flies Away

I've finished up the commissioned baby quilt.  It would have been on time, but baby came early!  He's healthy and doing fine :)

 There were enough scraps to make some bibs too.

Scrappy Spiderweb

Another baby quilt finished. 

I wanted to use up some of my overflowing stash of blue and green scraps.  

I also found this great, vintage, Robert Kaufman Kona striped fabric and I've been wanting to do a striped binding for awhile now.  

Mmmm, love me some striped binding!

I'm a Little Airplane Now

I've been commissioned to make a baby quilt.
Three requirements:
 - Include Baby's name
 - Include airplanes
 - Include camouflage (even if it's just for the backing)

I was sent this photo of the decorations for baby's room.

I came up with these sketches... vague, I know.

  And now I'm here.
I'm not in love with the camo for the border.  I'm thinking that's going to go.  I also didn't really double check my colors before I got going - just knew there would be orange and yellow.  My blue doesnt' really match the decorations.  I got all the requirements in there though...

Hexy Americana

I'm on a string quilt bender.

I have this great triangle template that has me doing triangles galore.  It's just fun.

I also have this enormous stash of scraps, which is heavy on blues and reds, so I picked out all the bits that played well together.

That all adds up to this,

  but probably more like this... because it seems a bit busy.
