March Happening

Here's what I've been working on the last couple of weeks.  
The first project I worked on was an easy one hour project.  My oldest just turned 8 and he has now joined the Cub Scouts, so I thought he might need a Cub Scout organizer.  Alright- I wanted to make one- so I wasn't looking for all the accessories every week.  It's perfect since his shirt can hang on the hanger and everything is in one place.  

My youngest turned two on Friday so I made him this cute baby doll basket.  The pattern is from MADE.  
It's a great pattern and was very easy to follow.  I wanted it to be cute but also suitable for a boy.  And the little blanket is the first quilt I actually quilted with my machine.  It's just straight lines-but I was super pleased with how it turned out.  

 I also took the Piece of Cake 3 quilt (pattern found at Thimble Blossom) to the quilter and a week later picked it up. I chose to have roses quilted on it.  Here's a close up picture.  
I just love it!!

 Then over the next several evenings I put the binding on it.  I'm super excited to give it to my mom- I hope she likes it.  
But I'm still working on the coordinating pillow.  

 The pattern for the pillow is from Happy Quilting Melissa Star Light Star Bright Quilt-along.  I have to quilt the top and add the envelope part of the pillow.  
Hopefully I'll finish it this week.
