Large Baby Bibs

I recently made some bibs for a baby shower. 
I found this cute fabric at Hobby Lobby. 
I searched Pinterest for bib patterns, found one that I liked
and made it a little larger.

The fabric on the back is from a new white towel (Walmart).
It should be very absorbent. The bibs are reversible and have Velcro closures.

My First Quilt - for Jaxon

This rag quilt was my first ever quilt. 
It is made from John Deere flannel prints 
along with yellow and dark green flannel.

The back squares are made from old jeans donated
by family members. The dark jean squares were
positioned to form an 'E' for 'Earl'.

Some of the jeans were torn.
I used the holes as 'windows'  for important information.
