Sarah's Birthday Surprise

This is just a cute caddie I made for my daughter-in-law for her birthday.  She had spotted the fabric and the pattern while shopping with me. She thought it would make a cute picnic tote.  I thought so too, and went back to the LQS and purchased all the items and made the storage section 1" taller.

I also made the table runner with a paisley print she fell in love with.  I thought she could use it either way to switch it up on her table.

Quilt Challenge Attempt - North Star with Northern Lights

This was my first time to attempt at a Challenge Quilt. I didn't get the inspiration until a month before the Quilt Show.  This was the Sauder Village Quilt Show, in Archbold, OH May 1st, 2012 to May 6th. I didn't win anything but enjoyed the whole process.  The challenge was to pick a colorway of the Bear Essentials fabric and include at least four Ohio Stars in the quilt. The challenge was called Star Light, Star Bright.
