I have two tops from a pattern called "Bean Toss Quilt" that I found on The Quilt Show website under "projects." It's a quilt and it's a game - how cute. I finished one to take with us to the in-laws where we will have a 3 yr old, a 4 yr old, and a 6 yr old, who I hope will play with it. It has the added bonus of being my son's blankie in the car.

The Paddington fabric was on sale at my LQS for $1.99/yd last spring and I was going to get a yard. Well, luckily the staffer talked me into 4 yds b/c when I needed a backer for this one and I just went to my drawer and there it was. My son likes green so - even better.
Here is the other top I made. It's going to the son of a high school classmate who's dealing with work-related injuries and now a divorce.
Here's the box of bean bags - all 32 + 2 "toe the lines" - to go with the tops. I will be stitching these on the road.
This is a really quick pattern out of a book called The Giving Quilt. It uses 9 FQs and makes a small lap. I got the FQs at Spring Mkt and my mom went gaga over it. So, I was going to do this for my guild's charity but decided to give it to my mom instead. However, I've run out of time to quilt it - maybe for Mother's Day.

My SIL asked me Sunday to make her a little pillow she can use in pilates and yoga. No problem to make but the timing is a little off with a road trip looming. I just stripped it and used quilt as you go to give a little padding to the top.
