Bountiful Baby Bibs!

Package was received and now I can show what I sent little Gus for Valentine's Day. Two little bibs to catch all that drool as he is teething up a storm! Of course they can be used at feeding time too! As I was sewing I thought of other ideas for bibs, (isn't that always the way it goes?) so once the package was sent I actually kept going! The blue with white snowflakey looking spots was a fat quarter, so I decided to use that all up, and I really liked the red & white stripe and kept going with that! I have long kept the left over inches from various bindings over the years, and all of the bib ties except for the white ones, came from my binding jar! I kept track of the fabric I used and now, for the first time in 2011 the fabric OUT is more than the fabric IN. YAY!! Of course I can't get too excited - I am going to our Quilt of Valor workshop today, 9:30 - 3:00, held at Nancy's Calico Quilt Store ! Yikes, I don't know how good I can be, THAT close to temptation for that LONG of a time. Sigh. Well . . . Happy Quilting! BTW, this was kind of cute - I had initally made three bibs, two of the blue with snowflake and the one heart one, I was just arriving home from Guild on Friday afternoon and my neighbor with her baby boy in his stroller was passing by. I hopped out of my truck and as we were visiting, her sweet little boy started bubbling up - I said oooooh, hold on a moment and dashed off and grabbed the extra snowflake bib and gave it to her! She was simply stunned! She couldn't believe how soft the back was (it's a plushy terri) and she couldn't believe I just "happened" to have one with me! That's kind of neat how that worked out! : D
