More sewing for Anna

A little sun hat to go with the gingham bubble I made in Lezette Thomason's class at School of Art Fashion Feb 2010. That's the week I found out Anna would be arriving in the fall! This is from Summertime Baby by Karen Bosch.

The little mouse embroidery is from My Lil' Friends cd by Karen & Tamzin Bosch. Both the book and CD are available from The Martha Pullen Company. And there is a little white rickrack daisy on the top made Kari Mecca style! Since taking Kari's classes at SOAF this past Feb, I have really gotten the embellishing bug and rickrack flowers are so fun to make!

This is a sweet little outfit using the Frannie Baby pattern from The Children's Corner. The fabric is some I had in my stash--I'm pretty sure its some I got from Thelma Stout. She was a very special lady and I am privileged to have known her and to have shared her stash of fabric!

Cars and trucks, baseballs and footballs quilt

My exercise coach at Curves is going to have her first grandchild, a boy, in August. She comissioned me to make a little quilt for him. She wanted cars and trucks and balls and she chose this pattern from a Quick Quilts magazine.

I bought the fabrics during Shop Hop in March with the help of my shop hopping buddy Linda!! I pieced it and backed it with a soft cuddly flannel, then quilted it on my Bernina using a beautiful variegated thread. Thanks, Dawn at Red Hen, for your help. It is bright and cheery and just right for a little boy. It's not too cutesy, so he will be able to use it for quite a few years. I think my customer is happy with ithe quilt. She showed it to a few ladies and one comissioned me to do a twin size for her little grandson!!
