Baby Outfit

This picture is not the greatest, but it give you an idea of my project I worked on yesterday. It is a baby's sundress with bloomers and bonnet. I tried to get a side view of the bonnet but the batteries in the camera ran out of juice.

Here is a scan of the bonnet. The fabric is a navy blue with rose buds all over it.

King Sized Bed Quilt

This is the beginning of a king sized quilt I am making for our queen sized bed. Why so big? Well, my husband is 6 ft 3 so his feet always hang out. I wanted it luxuriously big. It may take a while, since the squares are all 2" sewn.
The design is a tessellation. I'm using navy blues, various shades of brown and cream, rusts, cranberries, a few specific shades of green (sort of an old fashioned green).
I'm going to use a quilt-as-you-go method. The backing, I think, will all be the same print. I will quilt each segment by machine. I wanted to use this method in order to see my progress, and to quilt it by machine.


This is looped terry cloth. Not sure what project to turn this into yet, but love it. Can't go wrong for 16 cents!
Fish for postcards and other applique.

Asian prints for applique.
