Blanket for Ben

A lot of babies arrived in my life lately. I have been busy making blankets !! This one is for Benjamin that is such a sweet boy with gorgeous blue eyes. The pattern is a simple 9-patch with sashing. It is backed with minky to make it extra snuggly and quilted with a blue variegated thread.

And the final touch was to appliqué his initial in the corner and add a blanket stitch over the raw edges

Challenge : Curves

Curved Seams Challenge Homepage You know me, I can't resist a challenge. Rikki from Ricochet and Away set the theme to curved seams and since it's something I had never really done, I decided it was time to give it a try. I make a little throw pillow cover for Bug's future pink bedroom.

I think my seams turned out OK for a beginner

The back of the pillow is super simple

And since I'm a glutton for punishment and I try to get outside of my comfort zone, I tackled a second project, this one adding the complexity of random slashing. The result is a small table runner

This one was a lot of fun to put together

Aqua placemat set

I realized I didn't share much of the Christmas gifts I made this past december. I found a set of really cute ceramic bowls with a aqua inside glazing. And I happened to have a piece of this really cool textured fabric of the same color... It just looks great together right ?? 

Four of each ... 

I added the chocolate satin contrasting strips to make the aqua color pop
I love how the fabric changes color depending on the light!
