Another visit with the Wee one, water fun, The princess in her Pillowcase dress and more quilts.....















We had the wee one here with his folks,this past weekend, and he enjoyed the pool we had for him. The Princess wore her little pillowcase dress and don't you love those red shoes????!









I had the opportunity to take a Bargello quilt from Dorinda Evans a couple of weeks ago, and although my quilt is still in strips.... a real shame, these ladies did finish theirs and several had the same Kaffe Fassett fabrics, yet they are so unique! I loved seeing them.














Another two finishers from the class.




Then at quilt guild I loved this quilt. It was a simple but effective quilt.



I also am happy to post a couple of photos of finished customer quilts from the past week or two. I have another on the longarm, and a stack to finish in the next couple of weeks. Where has the time gone??? I can't beleive it is June almost, and I am just not ready for summer yet. My garden has baby tomatoes and peppers, but forgot to grab a photo of them. DD and I did take a stack and whack class this past weekend while she was here on her visit...and it was so much fun.









Her blocks are gorgeous..but I didn't get any photos.
I will snap a few of mine very soon. I only had 4 blocks done, but she finished about 12. I guess she just used her time more wisely than I did.
Don't you love this vintage quilt. It was sewn by hand, by a customers great gran, and I loved seeing the vintage fabrics up close. Really a fun quilt to do.

The kids are so adorable! The Wee Man looks like he is lovin that pool. My fav quilt of this post is probably that black one; the last one. What color did you quilt it in?

The quilts are all gorgeous. I love the different looks in the Bargellos. The vintage fabric quilt is so pretty with such nice colors. It sounds like you have been busy.

The wee ones are so cute. Love the yellow dress with red shoes. It might be a new fashion statement.

Those quilts are amazing - I really love the autumnal colours of the Kaffe Fasset ones but they are all stunning. :0)
