A blanket for Baby Lucero

This a cute little baby quilt for the soon to be baby girl Lucero!

They love greens, blues, and browns for their baby girl. Of course there has to be a little bit of pink! I love the way this fabric brings all of that together.

The Big Gift

 This quilt was my father-in-law's present for Christmas this year. I won't go through my thought process that got me to the conclusion that I needed to make a queen size quilt in a three week period, but needless to say, when I tried to explain it my brother-in-law he was laughing.

I had my husband pick out the fabrics. I think the longest part was developing the pattern.

It is a queen size. Machine quilted in navy blue with a solid navy blue fabric on the back.

I really think they like it!

Lamp Shade Re-Re-Do

 I am learning from my mistakes and it turns out that old lamp shades are really fragile. This is what happens when they get smashed!

So we had to do a little makeover. First I found a fun burlap shade at Shopko but it wouldn't match the lamp. So I had to do a little make over.

Yea for spray paint. It was super simple and it only took a few hours for a couple of  coats.

The whole project cost me $20!

Custom Quilting

I am available for custom quilting. This lady who made this quilt put the top together and I did the quilting and binding for her. It turned out so cute!
