Charming Girls' Quilt Club

It's time again to announce what I would like to finish this month for the Charming Girls' Quilt Club.
I forgot about it last month, but that's probably because I had just gotten back from our trip to Louisiana to see our families at Christmas. 

I am invited to a baby shower this coming Saturday.  The mother-to-be, Fallon,  used to take care of my grand-babies when they stayed in a day care center while my daughter was at work.  She loved the diaper bags that I made, so I decided to make her a diaper bag for her new baby girl.

Amy Butler's pattern, Nappy Bag, is roomy, has lots of pockets, and it's easy to make.  Fallon likes black and pink, so I thought these fabrics were perfect.

The black and pink swirl will be the outside of the bag, and the pink polka dot will be the inside.

My next project I need to finish this month is another "Butterfly Love" designed by Elizabeth Scott of
I taught this as a class for my Quilt Guild this past June.  I posted about it here.
I have the opportunity to teach at a retreat in the Fall.  I have to turn in a teacher application the first of March.  Although I have already made the quilt, I want to make one again using different fabrics.  I love Sandy Klop's (aka American Jane)  fabric line "Snippet's" from Moda.  I bought a fat quarter pack when I went to Hancocks of Paducah when I went to the AQS Quilt Show this past April.  It has been sitting on my shelf just waiting for the perfect project. 

The little florals, stripes, and polka dots will make pretty little butterflies. 
I want my quilt to be larger, and maybe do 10" butterfly blocks.  I figured it up that I would have to make 45 butterfly blocks.  That's a lot of butterflies! 

Another project I would like to finish because it's strewn all over my sewing table after the Camping Trip with Pat Sloan is my Bull's Eye quilt that I started in the year 2000.  If you scroll down to the next post, you can read about it there. 

I think these projects will keep me very busy this month.
