Caught up and a pouch!

A bunch of us girls get together after the STLMQG meetings and have a little Bee going on.  I love this group of girls and have such a fun time with ya'll!  They are some amazing quilters and you should check out their blogs!  I love you ladies!
 This is the last month to wrap up the year and then we will start up again in the fall.  I've been a little behind on my blocks after Jared was born and this week I FINALLY got caught up!! Whoop whoop! 

First up, there are Cara's Circle of Geese Blocks!! Check out her blog, because she's got a great tutorial over there on these bad boys!  They were super fun, and I totally forgot how much I like to paper piece!

Next, we have Jessica's blocks.  She LOVES pleats of all kind and asked that we make two improv blocks that included some sort of pleat.  She provided the solids and we added the colorful scraps!  I hope you like them Jess!!

Then, there is a block for Lynne.  She provided all of these fabrics and asked that we make one giant block.  She is making a quilt for a friend and I'm not sure if I can mention it on here because I believe it's a surprise.

Lastly for the Bee blocks, Mary Claire came up with this awesome block and it was really fun to make.  She provided all the FMF fabrics and we made one giant (I believe 20") block.  Hope ya like it MC!

Also, I whipped up this cute pouch today for a graduation party we're going to this weekend.  My husband is a high school teacher, so needless to say we get invited to lots of parties.  Lucky for me, my sister-in-law is best friends with this girl's sister, so I was able to sneakily find out her favorite colors!  This park slope fabric I had was exactly what her favorite colors are, so I hope she likes it!

By the way this is my Cathedral Windows Pouch tutorial. It comes together pretty fast; I was able to assemble it during Jared's naptime today. 
Speaking of which, my little man is teething and not taking as good of naps anymore and just becoming a little fussy.  My poor baby!  We have teething tablets and gel teethers which help some.  Do ya'll have any suggestions for this first time Mama to help his pain?  Thanks and have a great weekend!!

Way to go, Jamie!

Sorry the little guy's not feeling well. Our kiddos really liked those gel things. (You weren't supposed to put them in the freezer, but we did a bit). Also, when it was really bad, we used a tiny touch of Baby Anbesol.

Hope he's more comfortable soon!

I am going to make more of the circle of geese blocks, too. They are super fun to make!

They all look great Jamie!

Same advice as Lynne, cold stuff and Baby Anbesol.

That giant FMF churn dash is fabulous! You'll have to let us see a pic of the finished quilt. Will she let you share it here?

Jamie, when my 35 year old son was teething, the pediatrician gave me a HUGE bottle of Paragoric. They don't even dispense it anymore because it is so addictive! I don't recommend it. What HS does your husband teach at? I went to Mehlville HS.
