These are photos Sarah shared with me of her daughter's new room. I made the pillows for this day bed set up. You can see all the pictures of the pillows here . Isn't that wallpaper amazing??? What a perfect match! Her daughter is going to have such a wonderful bed to daydream, sleep and hang out on. Thanks for sharing, Sarah!

The best of Jennifer Paganelli fabrics
|Marie in blue from West Indies|
|random patchwork twin size|
|patchwork sham to match|
I was given an exciting opportunity recently to take a crib skirt from a previously made (not by me) crib set and make it into a quilt. Amanda contacted me because she had seen my work on Jennifer Paganelli's blog (thank you, Jennifer!) and thought I might be interested in taking on this project. I said, 'yes, yes, yes!!!!' couldn't wait! The print from the skirt is Nicole in blue from a discontinued line called Mod Girls. There was also a fitted sheet in the Eliza Stripe that she wanted to incorporate, but since I had some that was brand new, we decided to use my stash for that. I pulled from my extensive JP stash to get all the colors from the main print including Bell Bottoms, Flower Power, Pretty Please, So St Croix, Poodle, Queen Street, and West Indies. The backing is Marie from West Indies and the binding & sham ruffle is the Eliza Stripe. I free motion quilted in Aurifil thread using a variegated fuchsia thread in a scroll pattern. I hope Amanda and her daughter enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it for them!

Sew Sweetness' 12 Days of Christmas sew along! I am extremely behind in all the sewing, but hopefully most will be done before Christmas. I used the new Ruby scallop fabric for the truck base, Alexander Henry fabric for the wheels, presents and Santa. I omitted the door and machine stitched Santa after making the truck so he doesn't look squished in the truck. Hopefully #2 will get done quicker.

Psalms of Ascent every other Tuesday~ I highly recommend it! I fell in love with Little Apples by Aneela Hoey & ordered the charm pack to drool on it for a while before the yardage became available. Ruby by Bonnie & Camille is another 'must have' & I noticed how great they looked together, so I decided to make a quilted tote bag out of the charm packs & then ordered yardage when it came out for the straps and inside pockets. The interior is from Bliss, a previous Bonnie & Camille line. I used interfacing for the interior & batting for the front and back with straight line stitching. Super easy & cute! :)
