CoCo's 50th Quilt

I have been on a 50th birthday quilt run lately. I am trying to make them for my friends for their 50th..we won't say that word again. I give myself a year to make them their piece of art. She wanted mauve and this is what I came up with. After I finished it I was in Joann's and another lady was making a quilt using some of the same colors. Far out! This lovely quilt resides in Bloomington, IN with all the other groovy people!


I was feeling uninspired so I decided to clean out my scraps and just start sewing. I took my light scraps and created this quilt. It seemed to go in a child's room but I wasn't sure who would want this beautiful piece of art! I approached a free spirited co worker who has a daughter just like her. This will be "Hannah's" quilt. It is in quilt land being quilted. I can't wait to see it finished. Stay tuned for more.

Bella! Welcome to the world!

This blanket has a wild ass story behind it! My friend Cindy has a friend who has a husband who
has testicular cancer so they could not have children.  Shew! So, a friend of this couple was getting her nails done and began talking to the pregnant woman next to her. She confided in her and told how she could not afford this baby and wanted to find it a home. So this woman told of her of this couple and VOILA..Bella now has a happy home. I thought this was such a heart felt happy story I wanted to be a part of it. The theme of the room is "modern monkey" So this is what I came up with. I found the monkey material on E-quilter and had the rest. I quilted it by had hand and voila Bella (great name) is now a hip baby!
