Baby girl mania...!

It has been a week of fun sewing.  So many soft and pink things.  Here is a small sampling of what I have been working on!

Sewing ribbon embellishment onto a flannel receiving blanket....
It is just so soft and sweet!
Simple and warm,  Do you see my new "Grandma Loves You" labels?

I rounded the corners for this quilt and just organic line quilted it! 
Her homecoming blanket!  Minky and flannel....dreamy!
Appliqueing the block on the front of the 'Cheryl Arkison' quilt from Sunday Morning Quilts. (pg 13)
I choose to quilt on the printed grid!  I used a walking foot to help keep everything flat.
Named this one "Uptown Girl"!  I will fill in the date when she is born.
Again, I machine stitched the binding down.  It was a dream to do!  In the gold square, I grid quilted it on a 1 in scale.
I got the pattern/tutorial for this car seat cover from Cluck, Cluck, Sew! 

This is a small glimpse into what my week has been.  I have more things to share later on in the week.  Once again, challenging myself with no patterns, totes, pouches and such.  Drop back to check it out.

I am linking over to "Sew Cute Tuesday at Better off Thread!  Janice is sweet enough to host this little linky party each week!  Sew many cute things....check them out!!

Thank you so much for stopping by....I'd love to hear from you!!

You use such pretty fabrics Vicki- the gold blossom print, the green and pink on with the birdies, and the sketchy balloons on the receiving blanket! Busy and pretty at the same time!

Such a plethora of pretty fabrics Miss Vicki!! Your little grandbaby will feel like a little princess wrapped in those pretty blankets and being chauffeured around in her vibrantly patterned covered car seat!!

Love the ribbon embellishment idea. Will have to try that on some of Miss Sadie's things.

Such very lovely blankies, Vicki! I am sure they will be treasured by mom, dad and sweet baby. That car seat cover is a great idea. I love your labels...so cute. They add that special touch. And I know this is only the beginning...what a lucky baby to have you for a grandma! Is she going to call you grandma (or grannie or nana...)?

What beautiful goodies for your grand baby! I'm glad sewing isn't a race because I could never keep up with you.

That's a lot of wonderful blankets! I absolutely love the one with the heart shaped leaves and little pink birds and green on the back. It's SO cute!
