Zebra and Sloth Quilt 

This is the beginning of a baby quilt for a lady I work with. She’s not finding out the gender so I’m trying to keep it neutral. 
Update: just finished the quilt top for the surprise spout! 
Update: Finally completely finished! I hope the surprise spout loves it as much as I do!

Bee Joyful - Buzz Buzz

I’m excited and nervous to start this quilt from the Bee Joyful Fabric Collection by Deb Strain for Moda Fabrics. The pattern, “Buzz Buzz” is by Barbara Cherniwchan at Couch House Designs. It’s only taken 6.5 hours to cut it all out. I’ve never cut or sewed so many tiny pieces. There are 174 pieces that are from 3/4 inch squares to 1 1/2 inch squares out of the total 346 pieces to make this quilt. However the hardest part of it to cut, wasn’t the tiny pieces, it was all the “fussy cutting” we did to ensure every piece had the images centered. 
I love the way this turned out! I did enjoy making the bees with the 33 little pieces per bee. 
I throughly enjoyed every moment of making this quilt, even though it took a little over 25 hrs to make. It’s going to a wonderful home! I know Shelia will love it as much as I have.

Starburst Baby Quilt

I made this baby quilt for a beautiful young lady that’s pregnant with her fist child. She will forever be etched in my heart. I think as much as I’ve changed her life, she has changed mine. I chose this pattern to represent the beauty and light that radiates from Yesenia. I’m sure her daughter will be as radiant as she is!
