Circus Act Baby Quilt

My husband's best friend is pregnant with her first child and went above and beyond decorating the nursery in a circus theme, specifically The Greatest Showman.

While helping her sew the red and white canvas fabric for the focal wall, I immediately knew that I wanted to give her this quilt that I was still waiting to finish:

I already had it quilted, trying out my very first pantograph, so it was just waiting to be bound. I decided to add a couple of handmade burp cloths to complete the gift.

Now we're just patiently waiting for the little meatball to arrive.

A Wedding Table Runner

My cousin got married last weekend and I wanted to make her something for the house she and her husband are fixing up. Since I made a table runner for her sister a few years ago, I thought it only fitting that I make her one as well. After learning that she loves the farmhouse look, รก la Fixer Upper, I knew I chose the right pattern.

The pattern is called the Disappearing Pinwheel and it's a Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorial.

I have to admit that I loved this so much on my own table that I've decided to make another one just for me and the mother-of-the-bride has also commissioned me to make one for her as well.
