Hi Yall!

I couldnt come up with a good title so i thought I would just say hey!Ü

I came downstairs to this today.

I Guess the moral of this story is that you should never ever trust your older brother when he is holding duct tape!This is what is and was on the fram today. This little (NOT SO) beauty is a 120x118. I swear this woman is trying to carpet her home with quilts.
THis was a sweet little quilt thrown together for a grandaughter. She used all scraps and pretty much whipped this up in a night.Amazing.It also layed flater then any of mine ever have and was a joy to quilt.

This is what I whipped together this weekend. My youngest also known as the letter A and number 9 is outgrowing her clothing faster then I can keep up with.So I purchased 1 yard of material from Joannes.I dont know what it is called but its just a light cotton and the top is all gathered. I measured around cut off the extra then sewed it up using french seams. From the extra I cut ties and the bow. I put whit ribbon around the bottom and on the bow.It took maybe 3 hours.Walla! Summer dress. I am SO going back and buying every other print they have!


The bow looks terrible because I honestly cant tie a bow if my life depended on it. I need a good bow tier around here.

That fabric for your daughter's dress was all the rage when I was her age.....and that was 40 years ago!It was great because you could make a dress in about 10 minutes.

I'm taking a beginning quilt class as I've never learned and wanted to. I'm happy with it. They said after it is all layered I can rent there machine thing to quilt it. I have a wooden loom at home for hand quilting. I'm not sure which to use.
I love the quilts you pictured here and can't wait until I have some to post!
