Life is good here- I've been very busy. Lots of fun finishes to share:
I had to get a picture of Charlotte finally wearing my favorite Rollerskate Dress that I made. She really prefers the novelty prints but conceded after having a bathroom issue just as we got to church (we came home and changed). I am sending the other floral version to a former college roommate who has a three year old that still wears 2T.
I have another baby shower this weekend to attend and I made some cute quilted bibs:
A little while ago, I won a giveaway at Sew Giving- the funny thing was that I didn't realize I was entering a giveaway (I didn't read the post carefully) and before I knew it, this little bundle of Terra Australis came in the mail, all the way from Australia. I received the fabric on Wednesday:
And I made this quilted pillow on Thursday. I was a little obsessed and really had fun making this. I also had a deadline: my in-laws are coming for a visit and with them arriving on Mother's Day, shortly after my mother in-law's (Julie) birthday - I knew I wanted to make her a few things.
I did some diagonal straight line quilting, using 1/4" quilters masking tape as a guide (something I got at a yard sale ages ago). This was a very fun project!
I used a stash fabric I've had for ages to make a zippered back. I also made my own pillow form.
Finally, I also made Julie a divided basket, using more stash fabrics- a few prints from the Art Gallery collection, Floressence. I decided to do the pocket version this time and it came together pretty quickly.
Linking up to Finish it up Friday and Sewjo Saturday.
