Finish It All

 I had a crazy busy week this week in the crafty world. My husband is on vacation but the kids still have a few more days left of school because of snow days. So I've been taking this time to make all the things! I'm excited to show them to you but first I'll take care of the giveaway that I posted about last week.
The winner came out as comment #3 who happens to be Amy from Amy's Crafty Shenanigans! Congrats Amy! I have sent you an email.
I also finished up my Alison Glass mini for my mini swap. This is my ALYoF goal for May as well as #2 on my Q2FAL list. I am so happy with how this turned out and just love the colors and the quilting. I used the Sea Breeze mini pattern for this one and will definitely use this one again.

I alternated quilting with straight-ish lines in the three colors that appeared in each section. I think the back looks so neat and it is as awesome as the front in my book.

Here's a closer shot of the quilting. I love how it looks and how the different colors of thread really create a different feel. Speaking of feel the texture is pretty amazing.

I added my Sweetwater tag as usual but had to cover up the name. She hasn't posted that she received it yet so I don't want to give anything away.

Here's what I ended up sending to my swap partner. She is a school teacher and asked for supplies. I had fun going through my stash to pick out some good stuff for her.

I may have developed a bit of a Curvy Clutch obsession. I made seven this week and they were so much fun! I love them!

I'm amazed at how different they all came out. I am also amazed at my use of pinks for the top. I would not have said I was a particular fan of pink but this would say otherwise.

I think this one turned out pretty neat. It is double-sided. I made it with scraps I had leftover from a mini.

This one is for me and the only one I plan on keeping. I love the multicolored zip and the pop of color on the inside. I have been saving this tangram print for a while now as well as the zip for the perfect project. LOVE!

Speaking of love my littlest girl got an upgrade this week. I really wish I would have taken a picture of the sad state of her toy stroller before but you're just going to have to trust me that it needed this. We went to the fabric store together and she picked this cute whale print. With the help of double fold bias tape it was finished in less than an hour and she has been dragging it all over the house ever since.

I think this Hour Basket may be my favorite thing I created this week. Once again with Alison Glass scraps (I may be obsessed) and some quilters linen. The inside is one of my favorite prints from her Handcrafted line. This is also for a swap but let me tell you it was so hard for me to ship it out.

My partner posted several times about how she didn't need any extras so I tried to keep it light while still being fun. This was a great swap and I can't wait until she gets it!

As if all that wasn't enough I also finished up this adorable sheep hat from a shop order. This one is adult size and they look so cute on! You can find this, and many other styles, in my shop.

Thanks for stopping by! I can't believe how much I was able to finish this week! We're going on a trip next week so I know it won't be as productive but it may just be more fun. I'm linking up with TGIFF and Finish It Up Friday.
