Quilters Lead Pieceful Lives.

Tropical Breeze

How unusual! A baby quilt made with Batiks! But why not? I used the colors of the rainbow (well, 6 of them) in light and dark shades for each. Each of the 12 squares has a light and dark pair (or dark and light) starting with the center block, and then other light / dark complimentary colors. The binding is made from strips of all 12 fabrics. Time to click!

Tote Bag #1

OK....yes...this is not a quilt, nor is it even quilted at all! But people have been asking for strong tote bags and I was given this pattern so I made it.
It is really easy and quick (only 7 pieces!), has 2 big pockets, and is strong enough to hold books, a lap top, or lots of sewing supplies (but not your machine!).
Click here or find it in the folder "Other Non-quilted Items".
