Dressed to the Nines Quilt
I appliqued the dresses to the white squares and then attached the sashing. The dresses are machine appliqued and when machine quilting I stitched around each dress. The quilt is boxed and ready to go to the post office tomorrow. I emailed my friend last week and the parents aren't telling the name until she gets here. So for now the quilt is for "Baby Girl".
The neighbor across the street is expecting a girl late this summer so I'll be working on another little girl quilt soon. Haven't selected a pattern for that one yet. I'd like to continue using my stash if possible.
I haven't blogged much lately. It's summer and the granddaughters are visiting each week. I love having them here but I don't have much computer time. This week they will be attending a gifted camp at the local community college. I provide breakfast and taxi services as well as before and after time. It is so much fun to have them here in the summer. Now that they are both in school, I miss having time with them each week during the school year.
