Exciting Day

I have been busy helping my daughter move her sewing room and redoing the room for my new
grand daughter. She will be born today.

Her name is Mackenna.
I made her this quilt
with some soft chevron minky on the back
and quilted some hearts for her
and made some curtains and a diaper bag
I need to find a better hanger for the top to fit the rounded edge
and a little organizer
my daughter made her the cutest banner
I thought I got a better picture of it then this - darn it!
I also didn't get a good picture of the soft minky sheet I made
for the changing table
and a dust ruffle
So i have been busy sewing for our new little one
I can hardly wait until she gets here!!
until later - Carol

Dots and Chevrons

My daughter wanted me to make her a lap quilt with a snugly backing
and she loves dots and chevrons and all the bright happy colors
so it was so easy for me to choose fabrics I knew she would like.
I used a soft cuddle fleece for the backing
and a simple loopy panto.
and I tried my hand at a new binding technique
that I found here.
It was easy to do -
and I like being able to use two different colors/fabrics
 in the binding.
Now I want to make one for myself
Happy Sewing!!
until later - Carol
