BLUE IS FOR BOY



Those of you that have been following my blog have seem a proto type of this, the last one I did like this was smaller. I needed a baby quilt for last Saturday so I decided this was an easy, fun pattern to make up....and it was.


Can't forget a tote to match. This was suppose to be the one hour tote (see side bar if you are interested in making one) but I forgot and cut two sides....then decided to make pockets, then decided to make a square bottom....soooo I deviated alot from it but oh well.....then I made the straps to long, too lazy to take them out and cut them down so I just put knots at the end.....solved that problem.

Love the quilt and tote. The big white flowers all cut up in the quilt makes for little bright spots, very appealing effect.

Ha ha... I love your shortcut so you didn't have to take out the straps. I do that with my backpack!

What an absolutely fantastic quilt. Such a simple pattern and the fabric is wonderful. I love the way big prints look when they are cut up. You have so many bag patterns, how about a back pack?

It all looks very nice to me. I like how you make a tote to go with the quilt, it is such a great idea.

How cute, Barb - and what a lucky boy receiving the quilt. Great idea to make a matching tote, too -
I'll have to give that a try -

The quilt is wonderful. I I like how the samoan print worked in the squares. Nice texture. You amaze me.
I'm still busy canning while the sewing machine is calling to me. It's killing me.
