The other day I sat down to make a couple of bows for McKenna...and I made a few more than a couple.

Finished Quilt

The quilt is all finished! I absolutely love the machine quilting. Paula did such an amazing job on it.

This is the first time I have done a self-binding on a quilt. It isn't my favorite, but it worked well for this because I wanted a brown backing and a brown it was the obvious direction to go in.

Here is the entire quilt:

There is a close up of the machine quilting:
Here is the view of the back:
And here is a close up on the back side so you can see better what she did:

As usual, the pictures do not do the machine quilting justice. I don't think I will ever tie a quilt again! Paula is my go-to gal from now on! For anyone in Cache Valley (or close), she does this as a business and obviously is really good at it.

I made this dress for Kaitlyn to wear on McKenna's blessing day. It might be too big; I am hoping she will grow between now and then :)

Place Mat Bags

We made these bags in Young Womens a while ago.

This first one is a scripture bag. It fits normal sized scriptures in sideways. It is made out of one place mat. You can also turn the place mat the other way, cut some edge off, and make a bag to hold the small quads standing straight up.

This one is made from two place mats and is large enough to hold a binder.

These are really easy to make and just a simple bag.

Quiet Book

I made this quiet book for Kaitlyn for Easter. I did it in a little 6x6 scrapbook so I can change pages as needed. This way, I can add McKenna once she is born and add cousins as they come. The book can stay updated. Here are the pages:

I don't really like this siblings page, but it will change soon anyway.

Blessing Day Items

Here are some items for McKenna's blessing day. First, the blanket:

Next, the panties. I decided to wait on the elastic until we are closer on the day. Brayden was really skinny while Kaitlyn had some roles, so I want to wait and see what size McKenna needs before I insert the elastic.

Finally, the dress:

I am going to make booties, but I am not sure what her foot size will be, so I am waiting until she is here to measure :)

I decided to make the kids some Aprons for Easter. Kaitlyn always wants to wear an apron, and I am OCD so it will be nice to have their clothes protected.

Here is Brayden's. It is an art smock that he can use for cooking and art and whatever else I deem necessary :). It was really easy except for the bias tape. That took forever. Plus it is 1/4" bias tape, and I had to re-sew several sections because it wasn't quite on there. If I make this pattern again, I think I will use 1/2" bias tape instead.

Here is Kaitlyn's. It just doesn't look cute in a picture, but it is really cute in real life.

I decided to make a matching apron for me, too. Kaitlyn's and mine are from a pattern of matching mother/daughter aprons. I didn't think it looked that cute, but liked the matching of it and liked that this apron actually descended below the waist, unlike many of my patterns for little girl aprons. Then when I made the aprons, I thought, "Wow, those are so cute!" but then I took pictures and saw that they just don't look cute in pictures. Once we get them at Easter, we will take some pictures with them on. Perhaps it will look cuter that way.

Here is the runner for the end table. It is double sided so I can change the look if I ever feel like it.

Pillow Cases

In preparation for moving Kaitlyn over to a toddler bed, I thought I had better make her some pillow cases to go with her room. Here they are:

Here are the curtains I created a couple of weeks ago (or was it a week?). I didn't use a pattern, I just wanted something like this so I made it. It was really simple.
