circle quilt #2

i made this quilt for my good friend Shannon who is having a baby boy in July. I love the fabric that I chose and it conveniently matches the baby's nursery! The quilt it approx. 38"x45"...a perfect baby size blankey! I constructed this quilt the same way i did the first circle quilt i made. The only difference is instead of doing swirls for the quilting part, i simply sewed around each circle and then around the borders where the seems were. I love how it turned out!

prego dress

Okay, so I've been wanting to make a summer maternity dress that I can lounge around in. I got the idea to use knit from those cute summer halter dresses that I see all over. And the embellishments around the neckline, I got from a top I saw on a friend that she got from Nordstroms. I loved it so much that I wanted to recreate the look. I love how it turned out and how comfortable it is. Now my belly can get as big as it wants...bring it on!

head bands

I saw these cuties on this blog and on this etsy shop and simply fell in love! They are so fun and cute...I just had to bust these babies out! (No sewing needed...just twisted strips of fabric hot glued into a circle!)

posh baby banner

For my friend's shower on Saturday, I wanted to spice up the decor with a little banner. I wanted to make something that could be used multiple times for either a boy or I thought black and white would be cute and trendy! This is what I came up with....I love the look of raw edges and I saw the scallop border on a banner at a quilting store and that thought was a cute touch!
I used my fattest and tightest zig-zag sitch for the letters and just drew with pencils first. And then did a wider zig-zag to piece the triangles together.
