May Update...wrapping things up!

I'm checking in with my monthly update...I've actually been sewing quite a bit and finishing up some gifts that needed to be done before packing up my sewing room.

First up is Texas Tumbleweeds!  I started this on the quilt cruise with Bonnie Hunter last November.  It's going to be given to a good friend here in Wyoming...maybe I should rename it to Wyoming Tumbleweeds.  :)

I really like this one and contemplated putting it on my list to make another one for us to keep...but who am I kidding?  My list is so long already...I'm glad it's going to a good home!

 I really like how the back turned out too!

 The next finish is a baby quilt for a nephew.  The mom to be picked the theme "Guess how much I love you," which is a children's book.  There was a fabric line from a couple years ago and I managed to find a few layer cake pieces and coordinating yardage.  It's a simple design, but I think it worked out well for what I had to work with.

Cute little bunnies... 

I made a matching tote with some of the leftover fabric....

I also completed the May Bitty Blocks for the month...these are 3" bear paws.  Aren't they cute!  Love the little size! 

I zipped up a few zipper bags for gifts...really fun and simple pattern and tutorial you can find here

That's all the sewing that will likely happen in this house!  My sewing machine is going to the spa for a few days and this is what my longarm looks like.  Sad.

Before you know it, I'll be setting it back up in our next house...so stay tuned for the excitement!

Happy Quilting,
Michelle
