Park City Amy and Amy Lou Who are hosting their second Sew and Tell--head on over and add yours if you have something to show off!
This is the quilt for my grandpa's 85th birthday. My mom pieced it, and I quilted it and did the binding. The birthday party is tomorrow, and the white and tan squares are (mostly) unquilted so guests can sign the quilt. I used a variegated blue thread; it shows up a little better in this picture:
I have been working on a custom project for my etsy shop and needed a break so I made these little pants for my girl:
The pattern is from Ottobre Design 1/2007, size 74. They fit really well with some growing room (she is maybe just under 16 lbs now and 12 month size store bought pants are still a bit too long). I love those front pockets; they crack me up.
I finished the dress a little while back but hadn't shown it yet. Once she's up and walking I figure she can wear it as a top in the winter too--layered over long sleeves, maybe. And, she is getting close. We were in the bookstore tonight and Cory was showing L a stuffed dog. She stood up and was actually able to stay balanced for more than just a second.
Here's the pants back view:
(The color is way washed out in this picture, sorry.)
Oh yeah, and these are made from some of my Target tablecloth stash fabric. I love finding fabric at Target, and bought this table cloth and a similar pink one a couple years ago.
Finally, today I worked on a few small things. Here is my no-schedule 9-patch progress (I made 5 of them today, on the far right):
If you're interested in seeing what some folks have been doing with 9-patches, go here. I am just working on mine when I want to, and I am not quite sure what I will end up making with them (I am thinking, maybe queen size?) I am hoping to swap some with a few friends so let me know if you're interested in doing that.
I also made four cloth napkins from Katie jump rope fabric today, and two blocks for my Christmas quilt. It was a fun day.
