Since retiring from my teaching career I've discovered that there is life outside of the classroom! I spend parts of most of my days indulging in my favorite hobbies of quilting and sewing. I started designing patterns as an experiment, and no one was more surprised than I was to find that other people liked my little designs. I try to write my patterns in such a way that beginning quilters can follow them. I include lots of details, photos, and little informative notes, so even if they look complicated, the instructions should be easy to follow.

I needed something special for a baby shower gift, so I designed this little set.
The bib has a choice of two whimsical applique elephants and a Velcro closure.
I thought about my own experiences with new babies when I designed the burp cloths. First, I shaped then to curve smoothly and comfortably around the neck. Then, I remembered that my own babies used to clutch my hair in their fingers and I carefully had to remove each little hair so it wouldn't get into the baby's mouth. That's why I added the satin ribbon tags. They are something smooth and silky to grab onto - surely more pleasant than hair.
The burp cloths also have two applique choices. I like the cute little daisies, but I know some designated burpers who really don't want frilly flowers draped across their shoulder. That's where the idea for the letters to write "burper" originated.
The pattern contains 5 pages of instructions with photographs, full size patterns for the bib and the burp cloth, plus templates for the appliques.
