Half way there!

I finished quilt #3. It is my favorite so far.
I need to get the batting and get started on tying these quilts. I would like to have most of them completed before the end of the summer. I know I will be very busy once school starts. I have really enjoyed this project so far and I don't want to let it stress me out in the end.

# 2 of 6

You may remember from a few post ago, a 6 quilt project I'm working on. Well I've finished the top for quilt #2 in green.

I really love how this turned out. This quilt is for a little boy and since I have no little boys I always worry that it is too girl-y, but I this the is very boy.
I actually have the top of the blue quilt done too, but you'll have to wait a bit for those pictures.

My little firecrackers

I love dressing my girls up for the holidays.

A few years ago I made this cute dress for Bri and now it's perfect for Carly. It is one of my favorites, I did some smocking on the bodice then used the contrasting ribbon. It is a great twirl ling dress, a very important quality in any little girls dress. I remembered I had this dress Friday and then decided that Bri needed a dress for the Fourth. I was working on another project and thinking of what I could make that wouldn't require a trip the the fabric store, when I remembered this cute red and white checkered rayon I had.

I love how this dress turned out. I used the wrong side of the fabric for the trim and the middle section. I had planned for it to all be the same when I sewed the first section of skirt on I messed up and did it wrong, I liked it so much I left it. The best part of this dress is that it makes Bri feel beautiful, she loves how soft and flowy it is.
