Kathryn's Quilt

Five or six years ago, when my daughter Kathryn was about 14 years old, we took a block of the month club class together. We each made the block for that month and then tucked them away and forgot about them. She got engaged in September and I decided it was time to do a wedding quilt for her. I combined our blocks minus two months worth that just didn't fit in and made her this quilt. Half the blocks were sewn by her and I hired someone to do the overall quilting. I really like how it turned out considering the selection of blocks and the fact that 6 years later you cannot find any of the fabric we originally used. It is huge. Turned out to be 98 x 120 inches! If you look closely, I picked a quilting pattern with very subtle hearts here and there. I gave it to her at her bridal shower. I hope she loves it!

Here are the finished bibs. Sorry they're the first picture. Couldn't figure out how to move it.

This is my first attempt at free motion quilting. First try not so good. Second try a little better but I need to practice a lot.
These are the backs.
And folded to see both sides. I think you could call them reversible. I saw the tutorial over at Crazy Mom Quilts a couple of months ago and they had been on my list so today I tackled them. I love them and even went and bought fabric to make more. Thanks AmandaJean for the inspiration.

Mini Cupcakes

I made the mini cupcakes for Jacob's band concert fundraiser. They turned out pretty small because my papers were for petit fours not mini muffins. I didn't realize they were different sizes. The chocolate frosting turned out really delicious this time.
