Embroidered Initials on a Daygown

I embroidered my Grandbaby's initials at the lower edge of her new Daygown.
I used two shades of pink and one strand of floss.  




The flower motif and the letter L is on page 27 (part of a different letter combination). The letter S is on page 32, again the S is part of a different initial combination.  

I rather like it!

Wearing a daygown I just made for her and a smocked Baby Bonnet.



I embroidered her initials at the hem.



And a heart for this little Cutie Pie!!

Kathy's Quilt

While I was in Cleveland, my sister and I stitched on her lap quilt.
(she stitches, I iron)

It's made using cute fabric triangles and white fabric.

I really like it.

Her dog, Penny, was pretty curious about it.


She has since put a border on it. 

Has made the quilt sandwich (batting between front and backing)  and is Hand Quilting it.


To learn more of her method of "sandwiching" the quilt, see HERE.



Her stitches are so pretty.

A Cute Quilt in Cleveland

Remember this photo from JEllens Quilt Shop?

I love the Square Quilt.  The size looks like a Baby Quilt.

It is made from small printed fabric squares alternating with  white fabric. 

It's very cute.  

You could use those tiny mini charm packs (2 1/2"square) or cut your squares from  a Jelly Roll of cute fabric.

So many cute fabrics!!

Quilts in The Bathroom?

At first I thought it was odd and charming.

Quilts in the Bathroom of Fabric Shops.

Now I find it simply delightful!

And it seems to be a common decorating scheme to have a cute Quilty Bathroom.

This is the bathroom at JEllens in Cleveland.
