little finishes

This is my first pin cushion. I've had this idea on my mind and to use log cabins. I didn't want to wait and threw this little cutie together in a half an hour (scraps were already sewn together).  Both sides are pictured below.

This log cabin is from the white elephant gift trade Christmas 2015. The top is finished but I've not decided on a quilting pattern yet.

This bumble bee/honey bear quilt is meant for a dear friend of mine. She recently was blessed by the birth of her 4th child and we all know after the first baby families don't receive as many welcome into the world baby gifts and I didn't want to leave this bundle of joy out.
