This surfin" baby will be living in Alaska. I thought a little California sunshine in a quilt just might brighten up a very cold winter. It was made on a 5" grid. Charm squares and half charms alternated with 2.5" and 5" strips of Kona cotton. I may never do the channel quilting again. It took forever and shifted the quilt left to right more than I expected. The result, however, was a very soft hand.

Katie, Caroline, and Jenn, are all due with babies in the fall. With three baby showers on the horizon, I decided to get busy and make diaper bags, matching burpies, and quilts. The first bag is for Katie. She is having a girl. Jenn's baby boy bag is up next.

Shannon works at our school as a PE and recess aide. She always has a smile on her face and speaks in soft tones. The kids LOVE her. Mrs. Shannon, as she is known, is now having a baby of her own. We will miss her at LCE. She was mum about the baby's gender so I went old school with the 1930's fabric and some hankies.

I made these place mats for my jet setting friends Bob and Roz. Captain Bob is a pilot with Quantas and literally is a jet setter! We love the opportunity to spend time with him and his beautiful wife Roz. Back home in Australia, they own a winery, hence the wine theme fabric.
