Little Mother's Day Goodness

I whipped these up last night for my mom for Mother's day. It measures about 6" x 5". correction...it's about 7"x5". I can't for the life of me remember where I got the tutorial for the bag (hence doing it from memory), but the little tissue holder was from Kim Walus over at her blog bitty bits and pieces. Her tutorial actually allows you to construct 6 at once but since I was "test driving" the pattern, I kindof winged it with only making one at first. Now I'm going to go back and make a few more for the other mothers in my life.

I also started working on a little tumbler baby quilt for a field coworker (Colorado - lucky dog) who is expecting his first child later this year. I think this is the first time I've ever made a baby quilt from a whole charm pack and didn't mix it with anything else. It's Moda's Origins by Basic Grey. I got mine here. And it appears to be ON SALE!! Charm packs $6.95!! So go getcha some - or some of her other Greatness! I stocked up a few weeks back with about 15 various charm packs. Seriously - who could pass up such a great sale?

I'm also using this pack for a wedding quilt for another coworker that is getting married in October. Haven't decided on the pattern for that one yet.
It's Friday - that's all I've got! OH - I am meeting up with a few quilting/blogging buddies at my friend Love's house tomorrow. Lunch and quilt lovin' - should be a great day!
