Rice Bags

 
I just added a bunch of adorable rice bags to my Etsy shop. I've been wanting to add some rice bags to my shop for a long time, but just finally got around to it. I love rice bags. I love to toss them in my bed on chilly nights, use them for headaches, backaches, and just to keep warm.
 
These bags can be used cold too. To use them as an ice pack you can place them in a plastic bag and put them in the freezer.
 
They contain rice only, and no oils or other scents. As nice as those can be at times, after so many uses, they will begin to smell and have to be thrown out.
 
These bags are only $9 each and would make a great gift for anyone for any occasion.

Memory Quilt Complete

 
This memory quilt is finally complete! It's twin size and made entirely of baby clothes, receiving blankets and just a couple scraps of other fabric sent by the customer. What a fantastic way to not only reuse baby clothes and blankets, but to turn it into a permanent memory. If my parents had something like this made for me I would surely treasure it.
 
I'm thinking about turning this into a custom listing in my shop but in the mean time, if you're interested in having a similar quilt made, just email me at - angela292@hotmail.com
 
I hope you're having a great week!

Memory Quilt Top

I have been quilting away on that custom memory quilt. I made 35 blocks total and just finished assembling the top. The top is comprised of baby clothes, receiving blankets and a few scraps of fabric leftover from another custom quilt they had made. I added a pink border to it and now it's just about ready to be quilted!

This is the first time I've made a crazy quilt and I think I just might be obsessed! I love that it's scrappy, but not too much. I have a lot of ideas now as to how I can incorporate these blocks into other projects. :)

Memory Quilt

I've been working really hard on this custom memory quilt. A customer sent me a box of baby clothes and receiving blankets and asked me to come up with a design. I decided to make the quilt "crazy" style and I'm having a lot of fun with it. I like that it's scrappy looking but not too scrappy or crazy like some quilts I've seen. I have 19 blocks done and 16 to go. Other quilt orders have been flooding in too. Something tells me I'm going to be very busy over the next couple months! ;)
