Easter Dresses in the Making

I thought I'd share a little peak at the dresses I have been working on for the girls for Easter. I just have one little thing to complete and they will be finished. Ivy Girl is in heaven over the fact that they are purple and green, her two favorite colors.

Raggedy & Friends Block 1

After completing Ivy Girls' coverlet I needed a project to work on that was easy to tote to work and decided to start on Kaaren's BOM from last year. I have had a selection of Cottage Ramoance fabrics in my meager stash for a couple years and decided they would be perfect for these blocks and now that I have the first three blocks assembled and block 1 stitched I am pleased with my selection.  What do you think:

School Auction Quilt

Miss Sarah's kindergarten class made quilt squares to go into a quilt for their schools' annual action to raise money for field trips and such. I volunteered to assemble the quilt and it was so fun to see what each child came up with from their hand print. Most turned them into some kind of animal but a few came up with other ideas. Being partial to Sarah's I of course got a close up shot of hers but have included shots of the overall quilt to share. Currently it is off at the quilter's but should be returned in a week or so so that I can get the binding on prior to the auction.

Baby Shower Gifts

I am hosting a shower for a friend having her first, a boy, in a little over a month. I have wanted to try my hand at a couple ideas I have seen around blogland and thought this the perfect opportunity. The first is that of a nursing cover-up. I selected a couple prints from Kate Spain's Fundango line for it and think it turned out fairly well. We shall see what the new mommy has to say about it when she tries it out.

Another idea I have been wanting to try is the carseat tent. There are loads of tutorials for those as well. I don't have a photo of it but used Kate Spain's Central Park line for it becuase the colors in these fabrics go well with the fabrics in the fundango fabrics I used in the nursing cover up.
Along with these I made coordinating burp cloths and diaper clutch and this cute little hat in coordinating colors that should fit the little guy next winter.
