I wanted to share this little outfit that I recently made for my granddaughter. Actually it started out for one granddaughter because it seemed to run small--or I cut wrong or something. I loved the fabric the top is made from. I am pretty sure I got it at Hobby Lobby. I had had it in my fabric stash for a while as I did the pants fabric. The pattern was in Sew Beautiful magazine.

And here is a picture of the little sweetie modeling it.

Baby Quilt

I always make a baby quilt for each grandchild. I want each quilt to be different and to be more than just a quick quilt. well, with this baby being #6,  I am beginning to run out of ideas.  Recently my friend Carol made a small quilt that I really fell in love with. Her quilt was the inspiration for this quilt. Please go visit Carol's to see all her wonderful creations.

I went to the local quilt store--BTW I couldn't be happier that we have recently had a quilt store open in our small town. See, there has been really not much of anywhere to purchase fabric except for Walmart and another place that is really to junky to shop very well.

I am not artistic so I didn't think I would be able to draw the flowers and I bought a floral fabric and just fussy cut the flowers out after fusing fusible web to the back. I used 2 different size rick rack for the stems.

This was my first attempt at quilting but I really enjoyed it.

Today I will post another of the  daygowns being passed to Lindley for her baby.

This is another of the Grace Knott smocked gowns.

Last year a Goodwill opened in our small town. I love going there. On a trip not too long ago I looked at the linens and found some cute pillowcases that I knew would be perfect to make the girls pillowcase dresses.
the best thing is that they were only 99 cents.

The pictures really don't do this fabric justice. It is light pink with pink and brown polka dots. Chocolate brown rick rack and embroidered monogram  were added.

A buttonhole was added to the center back for the ribbon to tie.

This to was also made from one of the pillowcases. It must have been a king size because this is a size 10 top. The pillowcase already had the ruffle on the hem.
