Sew & Tell Friday: Car Seat Blanket Catch Up

You  may have noticed that I have an etsy shop.  Lots of my quilts go in there (what would I do with all of them?!), but our "main event" is car seat blankets.  They're very popular in Utah and I've seen many versions, but I still like what Kristi and I came up with the best.  Neither of us is a big fan of superfluous stuff on the handles (I know I'd lose any kind of clip or whatever when I went to wash it).  Probably my favorite thing, though, is the gathered back.  And the fact that we never make the same one twice.  That's fun of us, I think.

I've been so obsessed with quilting that I failed to notice that our shop was low on girl car seat covers.  What?!  I always have to stop myself from buying cute girly fabric because we always have twice as many girl covers as we do boy covers in the shop.  I've got a few more to make, but here's this week's crop:


I might need to do a few more with those fun butterflies - there are at least three more versions of that fabric.  Both of the above pictured are reversible. (I used the same awesome polka dot for both.)


If only I had a reason to keep this alphabet one.  It goes perfectly with the interior of my car seat.  Can you see the honeycomb print on the handle?

So, that's what I've been up to.  How about the rest of y'all?  Go see who posted on Amy's blog - if only to see Amy's delicious new baby.  Now THAT is a project!
