Around the Zoo Completed

I finished my "Around the Zoo" quilt. It's a baby quilt with fun zoo prints.

I quilted it with swirls in the circles, which was lots of fun to quilt. And I also did squiggly diagonal lines between the circles.

And for the back I just used the Alexander Henry 2D Zoo print. The binding is a Kona solid (I can't remember which shade of blue).

A few fabrics and a pin cushion

I recently participated in Carla of Lollyquiltz charm swap. The cute fabrics above are the ones I received.

I also couldn't resist picking up these fun fabrics at Sew Fresh Fabrics. I love those little books.

And I picked up this pin cushion at JoAnn's the other day, I just loved the meadowsweet fabric combination. And look it matches my sewing machine.

A Quilted Tote Bag

I finished this tote a little over a week ago. I really like how it turned out. I love the greens, blues and grays.

Here's a close up of the quilting, I used swirly loops.

And I quilted the handles with straight lines.

And added a double pocket on the inside. This should make a nice bag to carry this summer.
