Alphabet Quilt

By

My mom made this adorable little quilt for Baby T.

She picked up the vintage reproduction alphabet squares at a quilt show.  She knows I like vintage reproduction fabrics.  I just love the quaint little illustrations.

I think the quilt is especially cute topped with a baby in a strawberry hat.  But that’s just me.

My first pieced together quilt

By

Introducing, my first ever pieced together quilt! I made it as a baby gift for my childhood friend’s first sweet baby. She wanted purples and blues, so here’s what I came up with. My amazing mom-in-law helped me EVERY step of the way. I couldn’t have done it without her!

My mother-in-law added these sweet frills: the baby’s monogram, a surprise cupcake stitch, and a patch on the back of the quilt with all the important info. :) Very nice!

Frilling Friday: Four Frilling Things

By

Today I’m FRILLED by these things:

1) A little gal who has serious love for sunflower seed butter.  Takes after her mama.

2) The chance to practice writing my signature about a hundred times earlier today at our house closing.  Wahoo!  Let the renovations begin!

3) The first of many Dresden Flower Garden quilt blocks sewn by my mom for Baby T’s quilt.  We had such fun picking out the colorful fabrics, many of which are vintage reproduction.

4) These delicious, healthy, vegan, gluten-free berry crumble bars. (hint: these make great breakfast):

 

Anything FRILLING you today?
