I've been traveling a ton and with the holidays coming up I decided to knit some projects that I can donate before Christmas.  The first is a knitted baby blanket that will go to Catholic Charities for the Lullaby League and the second is a scarf that will be dropped at my childrens' school for their winter gear collection for the needy.

I used up a bunch of yarn in my stash for the baby blanket making it a win-win!

Scrappy Quilt

I had some leftovers from the skull quilt so I made a lap sized quilt for another friend.  This was a just because quilt.  I had to buy some backing but was able to find a wide backing at my LQS that worked perfect.

The purple border was from my scrap stash from the Brown Bear, Brown Bear fabric line.

A Wedding Quilt

My friend is getting married in a few weeks and I made her a quilt using a Jolly Bar pattern as inspiration.  She loves all things skull and volunteers for a cat rescue (and has 5 herself).

It definitely maxed out my basting space 😊

Mug Rug for a Munchkin

My Mom has a very similar mug rug at her house made from scraps of a quilt that was made for a dear friend who died from pancreatic cancer.  My neice loves the mug rug, taking it and snuggling it every time she is at my parent's house.  I dug out some scraps and made one for her to take home.  
She hugged it and cuddled it the second I gave it to her.
I impressed myself with my machine binding skills which have become very very rusty due to my lack of sewing time.

40th Birthday Present

I finished this in the nick of time for my brother in law's 40th birthday.  This is the last one that I needed to make for my husband's side of the family.  

I have some scraps from this quilt as well as another WVU one that I'm going to make into a baby quilt for when our close friends from college have a baby.

Both of my sister in laws turn 40 in 2 years and both said they were hoping for quilts too.  People don't realize how much time and money goes into a quilt.  If I made quilts for them I would have to make them for my other brother in law and sister in law too.  At some point you have to draw the line and stop.

EPP Stars

I pulled out my EPP again this weekend and added this star to the collection.

I'm planning on adding a bunch this weekend after I finish binding my brother in law's 40th birthday present.

Finished Scrappy Baby Quilt

I finished binding this quilt on Saturday.  The entire quilt is scraps from my stash which makes me (and my wallet) happy.  My Mom will be giving the quilt to her neighbor's daughter who is having a baby girl in September.

The quilt is backed in the same fabric as the border and the binding.
