First of all, thanks to the folks who entered my giveaway for the ballerina fabric - I'm so glad there was some interest! Congrats to Amy, lucky number 6!

It's very cute indeed. Thanks for the giveaway. It would be fun to make something sweet and girlie with this fabric! :)

Hope you enjoy it, and make something cute (send pics!).

Next up... Remember these? 120 different 6" squares of vintage linens...

They got sewn into a simple 10x12 patchwork... (only 9x12 here, but it grew another row)

then quilted like crazy... (check out that stippling!!)

then bound with a scrappy binding...

and turned into this!

(before being washed)

And after being washed. OMG! It is so soft and snuggly!!

The back is even softer, and so delicately pretty!

Wish I was keeping this one, but it's going to be a wedding gift for my special friend Kate, who is getting married on Saturday. Yay!

Luckily, I have plenty (plenty!) more squares left. I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to make one of these for myself. :-)


  1. Holy cow, girl! You stitched like the wind on this one!!! It is GORGEOUS!!! (And you labeled it, right?) :)
