Below are the images of Julia Kate's quilt. It's been finished for a while but between our procrastination and a couple of hurricanes, it didn't get shipped till yesterday. I hope her mommy and daddy like it.
Also the picture of it is horrible. I waited to the last minute to take it. Therefore, I had to pin it to the entry hall wall which meant I couldn't take the picture without holding my camera out to the side. It made it look all warped. It's not. Only my picture taking skills are.

So I finally attempted real button holes thus resulting in the end of two projects. I have been playing around with button holes for years but I have never had the confidence make them when it came to something that would be worn in public. Well, I had been working on these dress for Z and I can to a point that all that was left was the button holes. And I did it! I didn't do to bad either. There is room for improvement but I am still happy with the results. I can not wait to have Z wear these. I made them a little bigger so that she can wear a long sleeve shirt and tights underneath when it gets cooler. Thank you Lord for my talented, hardworking hands.

Ziva needed another taggie cause it is very difficult when hers is being washed. I decided to make her one and thought the best taggie ever would be a Razorback Taggie. I had enough material to make two. The second one will be on it's way soon to Ashlen Cate. She doesn't have a taggie and her parents love the Hogs. So it seemed like a perfect fit! Let's hope she likes it.

I had made the top of this quilt a couple of years ago. I bought a kit for making a "crazy quilt" on sale to see if I liked making one. Once done I realized that I did not know who I would give it to. It's a smaller lap quilt or large baby quilt but the colors are not ones popular for adults nor baby rooms. So it got tucked away. Then I when I visited the Darrows once we moved back to the Deep South and got a glimpse of Abi's room. Orange walls. Purple, pink, orange and lime bedding set. I knew then the quilt had found a home. I bought the brightest orange fabric for the backing and then got to quilting. I did not quilt it the typical way. I tied yard in the corners of all the squares. This has a name but I don' t want to look it up. Then I added beads, 'cause what 10 year old girl doesn't like beads?
