The Best Baby Shower Gift!

I don't know about you but it's baby shower season around here. In my neighborhood there are at least 4 baby showers in the next couple of months.I have been trying for years to find the best gift. I have finally figured it out. I have been giving it at parties for the last 2 years and have found that it's a hit.

I use these Extreme Receiving blankets. They are double layered, big and super soft.  I like to give diapers and wipes, maybe because I’m getting practical in my age.

First, lay out the blanket and set the diapers and wipes in the middle.

Pull up the four corners, bundle the top edges of the blanket and tie with a cute ribbon. Add a card and you’re ready to run out the door.

I hope this gives you a good idea for your next baby shower.

Easter Eggs?

I am so excited about my Etsy shop. It's really taking off. I have been surprised by the feed back I have been getting from customers. One of them, Susan, was so kind as to send me a photo showing me how she was using the Riley Blake Chevron Charm pack.


Who would have thought Easter Eggs? Such a cute idea. Another woman is planning to make a dress with a fat quarter pack.

I get so focused on quilting I forget to go outside the box. I see all the creative ideas friends are having with applique.

I hope this will spark your imagination and get you going on your next fun project.
