Sew Many Projects, So Little Time

This is showcase of my projects in various stages.

Madeline's Bows

I started this quilt months ago but, against my better judgment, I decided to quilt it on my regular sewing machine instead of putting on my frame. It was an arduous process that I won't be repeating any time soon. It is for Madeline's 5th birthday on Wednesday. I finished it yesterday but my camera's charger is MIA so I had to settle for cell phone photos today. It will be delivered tomorrow. The fabric line is "Happy" from Me & My Sister Designs. Perfect for a little girl.


The back is flannel. I bought the fabric over a year ago to back another project. I'm glad I did not use it then as I think it works great with this quilt. The yellow patch is the quilt's label:

I made a pillow case with extra fabric that can also be used to store the quilt:

Oh WOW, Kris!  The quilt, the back, the matching pillowcase - just AWESOME! You'll have to tell us what she says when she opens it!

This is adorable Kris. Love the fabrics and the way you did the backing. And to add a pillowcase is such a perfect touch. Madeline is a lucky little girl.

Kris, this quilt is so pretty. Madeline should love it! It is so bright and cheerful and will no doubt be snuggly with the flannel back. Madeline is one very lucky little girl.
