  1. Hi Sara,

    I was looking for an e-mail address on your blog but couldn't find any. I wanted to send you pictures of some burp cloths & bibs I just made for my new grandson. Is there anyway I can do that?

  2. Congrats again on your girlie news! Very exciting! And thanks for sharing the Missouri Star Quilting Company. I had never heard of them, but what a great resource! Love the podcast. Hope to see you and your bump at the next Guild meeting.

  3. @crowefan0517 - Oh, I would love to see pictures! is the easiest way to reach me. Can't wait!

    @Sarah - Thank you for your comment! Looking forward to seeing you at the next meeting too. :-)

  4. Hi Sarah!

    Check out this link for a burp cloth tutorial and template that may be just what you are looking for. I have my flannel but haven't had time to try this yet. I make personalized burp cloths to sell.


  5. Sarah, loved the episode and congrats on the baby girl! As a mom with 2 little girls (4 yrs, 10 weeks) I can tell you it's wonderful and I love making stuff for them. I really enjoy listening to your podcast with updates because I can really relate (working mom trying to find quilting time, little girl plus one on the way, etc...) Keep up the great work.

  6. @Lisa Thank you so much! This is exactly what I'm looking for. Love your idea of using store-bought receiving blankets to make the burp clothes. Brilliant!

    @TaneshaN It is nice to know I'm in good company trying to keep up this crazy schedule. We working mamas have to stick together. :-) Your art quilts are incredible. Beautiful work!
