Not for the eyes of Dot and my Mommy in Law;)

Wonky stars- GO FIGURE!!  I wouldn't do those again would I ?! 

Fabric: Kate Spain Central Park,Kona Red,Sandi Henderson Meadowsweet II, and the veggie print I wish I knew because it is SOOO darn cute (anyone know?)
Warm and Natural batting & Insul-Brite are inside which made the binding a tad tricky,but I conquered IT!
Quilting: straight lines using carpenter's tape

These are for Dot, one of my new friends.  That woman can do anything from what she was telling me in her email.  So I added the veggies because she likes to cook from scratch, can her own food, has chickens (I told you she does it ALL!) and the back is more of an elegant print I think because she likes to play the violin and I believe she can sing!!  Wow--right!  Anyway I hope she treasures them always and USES them-he,he!

One Pay It Forward down,2 to go!!!! I am finally getting on the ball a tad!


This cute little number is for my MIL,Teri----LOVE how it turned out, I am getting better a these wallets maybe LOL!
Fabric: Sandi Henderson Meadowsweet for the outside and inside "under" the pockets and zippered coin part and Castle Peeps for the pockets and zippered coin part
I am really liking the button I picked out to make that hint of blue pop some:)
The pattern was super simple!!  My FIL bought it in WI and sent it to me with the request that I make it for my MIL.  OF COURSE, she is a sweetheart---- so in a heartbeat!!  I could not keep it from ya'll though as you can plainly see:)  She is coming in July so she can see it then-he,he!

Two more Pay It Forward's now, started one with a new block design which I am falling head over heels for!
Baseball quilt for brother is patiently waiting on one of my tables ready to get some new threads on it;)  Soon!

Time to go hang out with the fam tonight!!

Night ya'll,

Sara
