Making things for kids and babies is fun. It’s all so cute!
My coworkers best friend’s daughter is turning one soon. I made these for her.
The onesies were purchased and I just had to add the applique. The fabric is Flirt by Sandy Gervais for Moda. It’s perfect for this because her birthday is near Valentine’s Day, so this can get plenty of uses.
I finished these up while I was retreating with some fabulous ladies. While I was there, my uncle stopped by with a quilt my great-grandmother made.
It’s actually a panel, but she hand quilted the entire thing.
My great-grandmother (my parental grandmother’s mother) gave her children, grandchildren, and all of her great-grandchildren quilts.
We think this was probably made before 2002, but all of the grandchildren were gifted their quilts in 2002. My dad’s is a Dresden plate and it is on a guest bedroom bed at my parent’s house.
My uncle is moving to Oklahoma and he wanted my dad to keep this safe along with my great-grandpa’s (my parental grandfather’s father) cowboy hat. I knew both of those great-grandparents. My great-grandpa (Grandpa Great to me) passed away in 1996 and Grandma Wheatley passed away in 2010.
Anyway, also at the retreat, I finished SIX Wiksten tanks! I hope to have better pics of these soon.
The coral one is a polka dot chiffon. The mint one is Arizona by April Rhodes quilting cotton. The gray striped one is a knit. The white one (tunic length) is a rayon challis. The orange-ish one is a voile. And finally, the color blocked one is a rayon challis with a voile back. I’ve worn three of them already and they are an excellent part of my wardrobe. I have plans to make one more in a double gauze from Cotton and Steel that I picked up from Modern Makers this last weekend. I already have a tunic-length chambray one (lined with voile) and a cotton/poly blend one. It’s quite the collection.
