Quilts and Cake

Over the last few months there have been occasions to enjoy some crafting.  One of my nephews and his wife had their first baby.  What a cutie she is!  Of course a baby quilt was in order.  I made it bigger than a traditional baby quilt so that she could enjoy it through her toddler years at least.  Plus, I just kind of got carried away making the disappearing pinwheels.  They were lots of fun.  I used this tutorial by Jenny Doan from the Missouri Star Quilt Co.

This next quilt went to a family who had their first baby.   

Back and tag 

Of course I had to include the book with the gift!

This is a flimsy from 2015 Mystery Quilt through Merry Mayhem.  I need to piece the back, sandwich, quilt, and bind it off.  So, still a little ways to go on it.

In the beginning of March, Caleb and Josiah went to a Teen Leadership Retreat.  I made this cake for the event. Dale had the opportunity to speak in one of the "Break Out" sessions. 

I love living in the country!  Being treated to gorgeous sunrises and sunsets are something I hope I never take for granted. Our old, cheap, camera doesn't do it justice. It also doesn't do moon shots.  I've tried and failed on every setting the camera has.   

Have a great day!
