Wednesday, June 17, 2009 the pink!..

My husband's friend and his wife had a beautiful baby girl yesterday morning. She's adorable with a full head of dark hair. Big congratulations Napo and Sally! :)

Good thing I spent yesterday cutting out these..

Piecing them into these..

and sewing those into this today..

Now please excuse my nowhere near perfect points. I've never done a project with so many points.. I thought I was going to go crazy trying to make everything line up. Then I just decided that it wasn't going to be perfect, but it's a gift from the heart, and that's what matters, right? It won't be any less snuggly because my points aren't perfect. Hopefully I can get it quilted and in the mail this weekend. Hopefully :)

Also spent some time making some of these..

And it reverses into this..

I'm all about the reversible-ness :D I like making my own headbands because apparently I have a smallish head, and those elastic around-the-head headbands don't stay on. And the plastic half-headbands must hit some pressure point right behind my ears because they kill me! So I love these fabric ones.. and I can customize, ha!

On one last note, if you live in Melbourne and wanna help a fellow crafty sister out, my friend Sandra is in a bit of a predicament. She's offering incentives to help :) You can find out all about it at her Pepperberry & Co. blog.

Peace, love and koala fuzz y'all!

  1. awwww I love the pink and yellow combo on the baby quilt. The POINT is- is it came from the heart - YOU *winks* You're doing a great job! I've never done points or pinwheels OR blocks. Oy! SOmeday! It's looking great and I'm sure it'll be an heirloom that they will always treasure. I always think handmade (sewn) quilts are best! You go girl!!!

  2. I want a quilt so bad that is shabby! That one is so cute! love the headbands! cute cute!


  3. The quilt is absolutely gorgeous!
