Big Sisters Quilt :)

Well I am doing these posts backwards. I wont repeat what my daddy used to call it. But I am sure some of Yall can figure it out ;-)....... I wanted to start with the baby shower photo's but my friend and designated photographer went to Disney World. Lol....Then I was going to show you all the baby boy gifts.....But one of the gifts didnt make it in time and I have to show them all together.It made a side trip to Hawaii......(long story)

SO I am starting out backwards!!!! I just wasnt feeling the boy gifts. Not in a boy mood I guess. I was actually in quite a mood about it. I referred to the whole lot as boy ugly! Dont take offense Jody! You picked out an awesome quilt and fabric. It just wasnt what I was in the mood for. (mom & dad however were over the moon with it)

To make myself happy I decided that big Sis needed her own quilt and matching doll quilt. Of course I didnt read sizes and it came out twin sized! I swear one of these days I need to actually read ALL the directions! Jody picked out these fabrics too! When I got them in the mail I KNEW they fit little princess Abigail. I love love love them!
BTW she got the doll quilt because the stupid directions were so confusing I evidently cut out a million EXTRA squares! I swear, I reread that part 20 times and STILL messed it up..Oh well it worked out in the end.
I used a pretty pink Perma core thread and just did a feather meander on the both quilts. I should of gotten a better picture but when I went to get a close up I noticed all the dog hair all over the floor I just had vacuumed! Worker boys lab is shedding so much I could build another dog!
