(I Love You, Man is an awesome movie)

Anyways, the other day I was at Quilter's Corner dropping off pillowcases my students had made for ConKerr Cancer (which, by the way, is a really, really cool organization if you've got some time to spare and some sewing knowledge).

Of course, I couldn't just drop them off without looking around at all the cool fabric and quilts they have. I initially was looking for layer cakes of fabric for a cute quilt pattern I saw on Moda Bake Shop. I didn't realize how much a layer cake costs, so I skipped out on that idea.

As I was walking around the store (several times), I kept stopping to look at a cute tote bag. It was the perfect size for my laptops so I decided to spend a few dollars to buy it.

A Quilt for Baby LeSchea

One of my coworkers is thisclose to giving birth and she happens to be one of the nicest people in the world. So needless to say, I had to make a baby quilt for her.

Some time ago, I bought a Quick Cuts Skill-Builder Leaflet from Walmart (barf, I know) that had two different baby quilt projects on it. I've searched and searched online, but can't find it anywhere. There were two projects in the leaflet- a basic quilt they called the "Bubblegum Quilt" and another one simple titled "Baby Quilt."

A Runner for Jo

Most of the things I sew end up becoming presents when I get done with them, and oftentimes the recipient is my sister.

I saw this tutorial for a table runner at Lella Boutique and desperately wanted to make one for myself. I used scraps of fabric I had leftover from the Boxed In quilt that I made for Grandma. I wanted the background of the runner to have an organic look to it, so I bought some muslin because I liked the little flecks throughout it.
