I think I decided what I'm going to make!  It's ambitious, but I think I can make it happen.

I'm in the middle of doing a hand pieced baby quilt.  I'm practicing my English paper piecing, so it's just a hexagon with expanding rows of 1 1/2" hexagons.  Once it gets to be about 36" (it's at 14" now) I'll machine quilt it and bind it.  So far, it's super-cool (I think, anyhow) and I'd like to think that someone would enjoy having it.

I'm going on a long plane trip this week, so I'll take it along, assuming I can get where I need to get in my embroidery project for Mother's Day first.

Wow. A hand pieced baby quilt sounds awesome. Who wouldn't love to get that! I can't wait for a photo Grin

I just finished an applique totebag and an apron. I think I'm also going to work on a basket of themed doll cloths and embroider a towel and potholder to go with the apron. I should have some photos next week.

Oh, that is too cute!!!

I calculated last night that I've done about 180 of the 411 patches that will be in my quilt.  At the rate of about 6 patches per hour, I only have 60 hours of work left in the piecing!

I'm machine quilting it!

I'm cruising along. I'm working on a huge gift basket of American Girl doll (or similar 18 inch doll) themed clothing sets. I've finished the following cloths and just need to create the non clothing accessories for more fun.

Hawaii Vacation
Winter Fun
In the Kitchen
Trick-O-Treat....Witch Costume
Picnic
Pajama Party
At the Spa
Doctor

Hopefully some little girl will enjoy this as much as I am while making it Cheesy

That is such a great idea!  And it does sound like it was a lot of fun making.  Can't wait to see the picture of it all.
