finished my wip

I know you have seen this before, but I wanted to show you how these little squares got all sewn up together.  Finished finally!

Sometimes these little things can just sit around waiting to be finished.  It’s just a little sewing and quilting.

But once I laid out the fabrics and my girl saw the tiny quilt she decided it would be perfect for her doll.  So I had to get it done right away!

She picked out the backing fabric with the cute cats.  And I did the rest of the sewing.  Now Jules Sparkles will rest nice and toasty, cozy at night.  Thanks to her Aunt Mary.

making progress

I am getting a few little quilts finished.  Picking out the last bits of fabrics, sewing and hand stitching on the binding.

This one is the from the Wonky Log Cabin Quilt class that I taught.  Red is used traditionally for the center square, but I wanted to use this untraditional olive green.  Then I used some reproduction fabric in yellow for the sashing and back of the quilt.

The binding is some yardage that I have had awhile that I love.  I am into the yellow, orange, and blues together, aren’t they just so happy!

And here are some blocks that my sister Mary sent me home with during my visit with her this past summer.  All reproduction prints.  Don’t you love the soft yellow centers!  It’s like a little pat of butter :)  This one is going to be a little quilt for my girl and her favorite dolls.  It will be just the perfect size.  And made with love from her Aunt Mary and Momma!

see what it's all about
