An Idea for Spring!

This was suppose to be a tutorial, but since it went something like cut, sew, cut again, repeat, I'm bring an idea instead.





Cute right?


I can offer some advice. I sewed this flower pot cover in 4 sections and I sewed each section at an angle with a 1/4 in. seam allowance at the top and a 3/4 in. seam allowance at the bottom.
If you make one, Id look to see it.

Aprons!

The kids needed new aprons and I needed a break. I have been bouncing back and forth between 4 quilts and just needed a project that I could finish quickly. So I whipped up these:

Excuse the paint on the table: we are all painters in this house.

And its a good thing because JJ and Lizzy wanted to bake a cake:

Circus

Isn't it lovely? Karen from Fabricpalooza sent me this to help with "Project playground"



I was rushing out the door when I decided to check to mail.





You'll notice the cement for the backdrop. I literally torn into on the front porch, but the packaging was so cute that I couldn't open it without a picture.



I later came home and took the appropriate blog pictures.



I have never seen this line before but I love it. It's called Circus.





Thank you so much Karen. The fabric is beautiful and I can't wait to start this quilt.

Happy Monday Everyone!

Lizzy's New Quilt

Well it worked! Here is Lizzy all ready to go to the Pre-K's Pajama Day on Friday.



I put her name on it and she was super happy. She is learning her letters and has been getting her quilt to practice writing her name. Too cute.

The back.



She needed a new pillow too.


For the binding she got pink sparkly fabric.


I finished the quilt and pillow in 2 days. My tips of my fingers are so sore.
Happy Monday!

PS: YES, that sunshine you see. And it was beautiful and short lived.
