Quilt, Birds and a Nursing Cover

I've been pretty busy around here with Memorial Weekend, Father's Day, and a bunch of projects I'm working on! 
First up, a local high school girl contacted me and asked if I would quilt her first quilt.  I was so excited for her and said of course!  She brought me her quilt and I was so amazed that she did a log cabin quilt and that it's a long twin sized quilt.  She made it over the course of this past school year as part of her home ec class, how awesome is that?!?!  That's so exciting to hear that home ec is still happening and that she chose to do a quilt!! Emily, you're awesome!  Hopefully she'll read this so if she does leave her a comment telling her how AWESOME her first quilt is!!!

While I was outside taking photos of Emily's quilt, I noticed baby sparrows poking their heads out of their bird house!! They are so cute and I was able to get a couple shots of them before they hid back inside!

And last but not least, my mom made me a nursing cover that you can see HERE back when Jared was born.  My sister-in-law Rachel liked it so much that she asked if I would make her one for their upcoming trip to California. Rachel picked this pretty batik fabric for it and I think it turned out great; hope you like it Rachel!
 Let me just say, for those of you who nurse or are going to nurse your children, nursing covers are a MUST!  Especially now that Jared is older and grabs EVERYTHING, the nursing cover is great because even if he grabs it he can't pull it off with the strap around my neck!  I highly recommend getting/making one if you plan to nurse your children!  ***It also makes a great gift for a baby shower*** If you want to make one for yourself or a friend, I used this tutorial and it worked great!
