N-o-e-l Blocks

I  made N-O-E-L block kits for a group project.  You paint the blocks, modge podge the background on, then the letters, and then hot glue on some decorations.  I cut out the letters with my Quikutz digital cutter. 

Here are a few of the kits (I made 18 kits).

The Big Booties

I forgot to actually picture the Big Booties in my Big Booties, Little Booties post.  These are also by Kristy.  Adorable.   I want to make some for my mom and sister but who knows if I'll ever get to it.

Umbrella Quilt Top

I am making this for my high school friend (okay, I did have two) who is having a baby girl in December, along with a matching bedskirt and fitted sheet.  And maybe a wall hanging.  Or a diaper holder/laundry thing.  Well, we'll see and I'll post the whole set when it's complete. 

How I made this quilt top:

2 fat quarters of Riley Blake Umbrella fabric - each cut into six 9"x6.5"
2 fat quarters of other Riley Blake that matched - each cut into twelve 4.25"x4.25"

12 grey strips, 4.25"x1.5"

I swapped out a couple of my dozen 4.25x4.25 blocks with other fabric and placed these randomly.

I placed the umbrella fabric rectangles in four rows of three, and made sure that every other rectangle was upside down, and space them for the small rectangles.

I sewed twelve 4.25x4.25 squares to each other with the light grey in between, resulting in my small rectangles, which I placed in between the umbrella rectangles.

The sashing is grey - 2.5"x35" on the sides (trimming extras) and then 3"x36" on the top and bottom. 

I'm using a polka dot binding.
