Birdies and hexies and quilties ... oh my :D

Lots of sewing got done in July - most of these items are going to Blue Hills for the kids :)

QAYG baby quilt done with alternating pink and red blocks.  Backing and binding is a pink print with accents of red.  Finished to 36" x 36" - for Blue Hills :)

Whale bib and killer whale zippered pouch - for Blue Hills :)
Kristin Link (Sew Mama Sew) zippered iPad and pencil pouches - tutorial and sizing info here :)
Zip pocket pouches by Michelle Patterns - the one in American flag fabric is my new cellphone pouch for the cellphone I use when we go Stateside, and the other two will go to Blue Hills :)

4 little birdy pouches - for these bags, I tried to do more "boyish" designs.  These are from Amy Morinaka's Zakka Handmades book (which I LOVE - NAYY!), and will be going to Blue Hills :) 

Well THIS is a fun design - a hexy zipper pouch!  I used a 4" hexagon template to make mine - the tutorial is here - these will be going to Blue Hills :)
More goodies from Zakka Handmades!  Here are 10 pencil pouches I made for Blue Hills - mine are a bit larger than her instructions, which made them a bit easier on my fiddly hands :)  (collage created @ fotor :D)


  1. That pink quilt looks lovely! Just like yummy strawberies. Plus I like those pouches with yellow zipper = strange for me :-) and those tiny ones at the end, pretty!

  2. Oh my goodness I seem to have missed such a lot. Firstly your new look blog, I absolutely love it, those owls are so cute. Gorgeous quilt, I can't go down the list one by one so everything looks perfect. The pencil pouches look great with handles.

  3. Love these! Still love the bird pouches, did you use a tutorial for htat? Those hexagon ones are cute, you should make them with red fabric with black polka dots...they would look like lady bugs!! :)
    Love ya!

  4. Very cute! You were sew productive :)

  5. Oh, wow! You have been busy! I have to have that whale bib pattern. Details for getting hold of that one, please and thank you. Oh, I'd also like to know what vitamins you're taking. I need this kind of energy!

  6. Love the colors on the pink/red quilt--so appealing. And the pouches are adorable. I especially like the birds.

  8. such cuties, love that whale bib! You have been on a roll, have you been remembering to eat and sleep?
