Crazy Quilt for a Baby

I made this baby quilt for the coming grandbaby (due soon) of a friend of my husband.  It measures approx 35 x 43 in.  It is machine pieced and quilted.

These next few photos show some of the fun fabrics used.  I like these quilts for baby as they have so many colors, shapes, and things to find.  In this section there is Minnie Mouse, Holly Hobby, polka dots, flowers, and more.

In this section there is a pig, angels, a happy girl, a skeleton dog, a sunflower, and more.

In this section there is a dog, motorcycle, sailboats, lighthouses, and more.

In this section there are more dogs, a car, a pig, flowers, and more.

Chevron Baby Blanket

This small afghan was knit for a baby whose family lives in Arizona.  I tried to pick colors that reminded me of the desert flora I saw on my trip there this spring.  They looked great lined up together but I’m not perfectly happy with the finished blanket.  I think it might have looked better if I had knit a strip of each color at each end rather than two strips of two colors at opposite ends.  It was knit using the pattern “The Walt Painted Chevron Baby Blanket” by Danielle Romanett.  The yarn is  Cascade Yarns® 220 Superwash in colors  228 Frosted Almond,  859 Lake Chalan Heather, 253 Desert Sun, 253 copper heather, and 1919 Turtle.  It measures approx 33 in X 43 in.

Shoreline Bag

This is the first project I have crocheted in a long while.  I saw this kit by Wool and the Gang for this bag (Shoreline Bag) knit with yarn made of recycled plastic bottles mixed with cotton.  I purchased the kit and made the bag to give to a sister who loves going to the beach.  Her birthday is later this month.  The bag measures approx 20 in wide x 15 in high x 6 in deep.

Golden Milo Shawl

I finished this shawl back in April.  It was knit using the pattern MILO by Gabriel Ordenes.  The yarn is Lost City Knits Foothills Fingering in the colorway  Rumplestilskin. It took one skein.  Blocked it measured 54 in wide and 27 in deep.  I’m sure it will end up being a gift for someone but at this time I don’t know who it will be.
