My latest embroidery design

Downy (yes, the fabric softener company) has partnered with Quilts for Kids and created this awesome program that anyone who loves to sew can participate in. All you do is request a free quilt kit, make the quilt in your own home using the provided pre-cut fabrics and instructions (and your own batting and thread), then mail it back to them. The quilts go to children staying in Children's Miracle Network Hospitals around the country. How great is that?!
This racecar quilt is my first one, and I'm working on a second one from my fabric stash to donate as well. I just need to quilt and bind it, and they'll be off to comfort some sick kids!

Melaina is infatuated with Beanies and is always lugging at least two or three around with her everywhere we go. It occurred to me yesterday that she needed a better way to carry her beanie friends, so this is what I came up with. I made the circles with my embroidery machine, cut out the centers, then whipped up the rest of the bag in no time!
