Long Time - Misc.

No particular order, these were actually made yesterday.  I used the instructions from a tutorial on YouTube, a british lady with a black dress or cardigan, and pretty jewelry.  I couldn't find it again when I was looking for it.

These were an order for a lady who is gifting to friends or family, who love sloths and/or armadillos.

This picture is a bit washed out, an order for busy bags, but I think for the lady in the family, not the kids.  She is an artist so I think they are either for her art of her makeup.

More of the fabric baskets, I finished these this morning. These are probably for me and my sewing room.  

A wedding present for a great niece.  4 placemats, a small table runner, and 4 of the fabric baskets.
Another busy bag for the same lady as the floral busy bags, but I think this one is for her child.

A close-up of the wedding gift placemats.

Just for fun, I dropped into Plaster Cottage and did a little bling for my wall.

The fronts of another set of placemats for the son of a nice lady who gave me a lot of fabric given to her by a quilter who moved out of state, and who is now deceased.

The back of the placemats.

Easter busy bags.

A table runner for me.

Comparison of the original size from the tutorial, which started out with 15 1/2" squares.  Some that I made bigger, starting out with 20 1/2" squares.

Empty Easter busy bags.

The top 2 shelves are the fabric given to me by the nice lady.  Washed and folded.  The messy shelf underneath is some of my scraps, sorted by color.

When you make the fabric baskets there are fairly large pieces that I couldn't see throwing away, already quilted and ready to go. I figured they can't be used for potholders, as there is only 1 layer of cotton batting, but they can be mug rugs, or hot pads.  Maybe the larger one, even used as a table topper somewhere.  Even though they are rather primative, I'll give the larger one to my great niece since it matches the fabric baskets.

This quilt top was in the fabric that was given to me, it was basted, but not quilted.  I went ahead and quilted it, and it will be given along with one set of the placemats to the son of the lady who gave me the fabric.  He also was just recently married. 

A simple baby quilt that I made recently from leftover fabrics and a fleece back, no batting.  It is very soft, but I'm not sure who I'll give it to yet.
Another tutorial from YouTube,  It is a very large bag, I added several extra pockets.  I can't remember who the tutorial was by.  

I've since added a firm bottom to it, so it has more structure.  I was going to share this on SewCanShe's Show Off Saturday, but so far no linky.  Her blog is still well worth a visit, though.
