sewing and telling

I'm in a little bit of a finishing mood lately.
Yesterday I made these bloomers and also did the buttonholes and sewed buttons on this dress. I have a new pair of ruffly socks for my girl to wear with her new outfit this Sunday!

I finished up my March block for Angela in my bee beautiful group. She requested an improvised, but all "90 degree" block. I love these fabrics and colors!

I also put together the back for my nephew Landon's Oh Boy quilt. I think I'm on this project now until it is all the way done and sent off to him. He's 9 months old, it's about time. My other sister-in-law should soon be finding out if the next cousin for my kids will be a boy or a girl, so I will have a new baby quilt to plan for and get going on in the next few weeks!

Don't forget to stop by Amy's blog to and check out sew and tell Friday!

I'm in a finishing mood too. Lots of WIPs right now. Which I think is better than WNSs(works not started)!

where did you get the bloomers pattern? I want to make some for my 4 year old - all she wants to wear are dresses, but I don't want to see her underwear all the time!

The quilt block is just fabulous!

I hope 9 months is THAT long to wait for a quilt. I'm sure I've been further behind than that!

I know that they must be simple, but I'm scared of bloomers. Do you have a pattern you use?

I love how your quilt turned out! Those bloomer are so cute! I will have to give these a try. I've been in a finishing mood too lately! Gradually, reducing my sewing projects prior to purchasing more fabric. I'm still working away on my Simple Squares Quilt too, just in small increments! Can't wait to share it!
