For Teacher

My youngest son has had the absolutely best teacher this year. She has really been helpful and wonderful and he just loves her. I wanted to do something nice for her now that the year is drawing to a close. I originally saw this on Bloom's blog. I hope she likes it.
It's a pen roll.

Here is another version of Rosalie Quinlan's Welcome Friends stiching basket. This one is for Shannon of Treasured Threads.

Sewing Madness

I've been sewing like crazy and having so much fun making clothes for my little one. I've seriously been bitten by the clothes bug lately and find myself looking at fabrics more for clothes than quilting. Never fear though, I am not giving up quilting. In fact I just got a new kaleidescope ruler today and will be beginning a quilt for my son soon, after I finish a couple t-shirt quilts I have on order.

Have I mentioned how much I love Oliver + S patterns? This is the blouse from the new Ice Cream Dress pattern. It is so easy and fun to put together. See my label in there?

I finished Rosalie Quinlan's Welcome Friends basket. This was a fun one as all hers are.

And I've been trying out my new close up filter for my camera. Not quite as good as a macro lens (I have to save up for that) but a lot cheaper. Click on the pic for a bigger image.

Popover Dress

I love love love Oliver + S patterns. If you haven't tried sewing clothes or even if you have and just didn't like it forget all the others and try these. It will change your mind about sewing clothes forever. The popover dress is a free pattern from Liesl of Oliver + S. It was so easy that I whipped out three this afternoon. Aren't they adorable? This first one is using Hunky Dory fabs.

And this is using Heather Mulder's Rebel Roses fab. These dresses are so easy, the pattern is simple to follow and the directions are so clear.

And this was made from some really cute fabs I found at my local Hancock's. I think the line was called M'Liss? Anyway I liked them.

Did I mention that I love Oliver + S patterns?

Brittany's Quilt

Wow it has been a really long time since I posted. I hadn't realized that. So busy surfing everyone else's blogs I forgot about mine. So I have some updating to do. First a quilt I finished for my neice. This was done using Basic Grey fabs (Blush) from Moda. I love this collection. She just got the quilt yesterday, Easter, because she's away at school. She loved it. I'm so glad. She's such a sweet girl!
This is the front of the quilt. Pretty blurry but you get the idea.

And here is the back:

I've also finished a model stitching assignement for Treasured Threads, Raspberry & Cream by Cinderberry Stitches.
