I made this one to have the old fashioned traditional look and I love scalloped edges so I included those too. This is a cuddling lapsize quilt although a little larger than a regular lap size. It should wear well. I gifted this quilt to a deserving young mom who is battling her second round of breast cancer. I hope the quilt brings her comfort.

The movie Frozen is all the rage now and my 3 year old great granddaughter requested a dress so she could be Queen Elsa on Halloween. I obliged. Had so much fun making the dress but was a lot of work. I added rhinestones across the bodice of the dress for extra pizazz. If she sends a photo I will include it in this blog. It is made of satin and organza.

I copied a quilt I found online but could not find a pattern for it. I call it Bold and Classy. It is machine pieced and hand appliqued. I haven't quilted it yet. I plan to begin that very soon.

This quilt replaces a flannel quilt I made for her years ago that was burned up in a house fire. One side of this quilt is flannel log cabin blocks which are soft and cuddly in her favorite autumn colors. The back side of the quilt is all cotton appliqued spring flowers. This is, essentially, two quilts in one. I hope she likes it. April 2014.

Denise, my dearest friend and quilting buddy steered me off onto mini quilts for a break from the usual big stuff we make. It was fun. The goal is to make a tiny version of the big patterns and it's quite interesting and no as easy as you might think. I have made two so far. Both pinwheel patterns with simple framing and binding. I like them but my husband said, " Bah. They're too much work for what you wind up with." They measure 10 l/2" X 12 l/2 "
Update: I have a photo of Alanna in her dress along with a doll dress to match I made for her baby.
