A hat

I made my youngest a hat.

But then I couldn't stop at just one.

This little boy loves his hats.

Getting my fabric scraps organized!!

I completed 2 boxes from the book Sunday Morning Quilts.

A pink one..

And an I spy one.(For novelty fabrics)

My colored boxes. They make me so happy!!

I still need an orange one, a black, white, brown, and maybe gray... I just need more fabrics in those colors.

After I complete my cat quilt, I plan on cutting up these scraps into the following sizes: 2", 2.5", 3.5" and 5".

I'm thinking this would be a fun quilt to use up all my colored scraps from the cat quilt on.

Mother's Day Gift

My mom has been asking for an apron for a while so I finally made her one for Mother's day.

My oldest daughter now thinks she needs one.

To go with it I made a Recipe binder.

She loves it! The only thing is the directions called for a 1 1/2" binder and my cover wouldn't fit into a 1 1/2" binder, but it fit into a 1" binder. (Maybe I made mine too short!)

May's Goals

Over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Sarah asked us what are goals for May are.

I want to continue working on The Splendid Sampler .

Continue working on these little cat blocks.

I also want to finish at least one of these two quilts.

I think these would be done if I had a long arm machine. I'm working on piecing the backing for the gray/pink/purple quilt.

I would also love to get some time in for scrapbooking.

I'm working on updating my blog and I noticed that I never shared these Easter baskets I made.

This was part of a sew along in one of my FB groups. And it was something I had pinned for a year.

Here's the link.

Hand in hand and cats

Completed the new Splendid Sampler block. Here's Block 23, Hand in hand.

I also made a few more cat blocks. My youngest daughter thinks this will be her quilt when it's done. She love's cats.

I snuck a piece of my Splendid sampler colors into this blue cat.

These 2 green ones are completely from scraps (except the background fabric)!!

More blocks

I finished Block 11, Crocheted Thoughts . I got this one done last night, so I was all caught up on the Splendid sampler quilt along until this morning when a new one came out.

I've had the cat quilt along pinned for a long time so I decided to make one. And then I had to make a couple more.

My plan is 100 cat blocks to make a rainbow quilt with.
