For my sweet baby

This sweet little girl is turning five in a few days. I wanted to makes her something special. I never got around to making a quilt for her when she moved into her new bed last year so I decided to make it for her birthday.

Every time we go to the fabric store the girls always love to play with the Minke fabric. Minke is a fabric that is a cross between faux fur and fleece, it is very soft. So I decide to back the quilt in minke, but she also likes silky stuff which is so hard to work with so I decided to make a texture quilt. I use flannel, satin, faux fir, and bumpy minke for the squares and then I bound it in satin. I think she is going to love this quilt. I sure love her!

I have a friend from high school that I have recently reconnected with. (isn't facebook great?) She volunteers for the annual gala for the Ronald McDonald House Charities, She is the chair of the silent auction and asked if I would be willing to donate one of my quilts. I have never had to use the services of RMH but I know what great things they do for families in some of their hardest times, and having recently chaired a silent auction at my kids school I was more than happy to help.

The fabric for this quilt is out of one of my scrap bags. I hope it will find a good home and will get a great donation for a good cause.

Happy Easter

I almost did make Easter Dress this year (Gasp!) It seems like I spend a lot of money on fancy dresses that don't get worn that much so I decided to make more casual dresses this year. But the weather has been so bad and the dresses I'd planned were for warmer weather. But in the end you can't have Easter without an Easter dress, so I made them.

Carly wanted hers blue, I think the funky fabric suits her.

Bri is my pink lady, and we found some fabric with Butterflies that was perfect for her.

I think they turned out pretty cute.
