quick projects

Hi there! The weather has been so wonderful here lately it's been hard to be inside for very long.

Yesterday I finished up a few quick projects.

This is Kidlet (PDF), a gift for a cousin's new baby boy. I had all the materials on hand except the webbing for the handle. I just reinforced some fabric with interfacing and quadruple folded it. Love how it came out!

This is a "Charm Quilt" that was a custom order. You tie charms onto each white square - the child gets a new charm each year for their birthday through the age of 18. I had never heard of this before but it's a neat idea.

It's been such a great week here! We got a very large donation for our trip and it just about covers what we needed! The drawing for the quilt is tomorrow and we've raised almost $800 for it alone! So exciting!
