Bragging rights

I've been having  a secret for ages now and I can finally share! I'm so excited to be a part of this......

Cathy was so generous to ask me to participate by making a doll quilt and I'm so honored. At first I was really anxious because look at all that talent that's in there with me. Some pretty awesome little quilts, uh? (And adorable girls!)

And here's mine....

I made this little quilt for my mom~I know she'd be so proud of me. All the fabrics come from her stash (which was truly unbelievable). I have so many vintage pieces from her and wanted to honor her with this. That's her initials. The white textured fabrics were stored in a stack in one of her back rooms. I know she must have had a dream for these pieces. Hopefully, my little dream quilt has fulfilled a part of that. So if you love to sew cute, new ideas and dolly quilts, check your local bookstore, fabric shop or Amazon to order your copy.

These all look like so much fun and a little masterpiece can be all yours to have or to give to someone you love.

Linking to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound~there's lots of pink doll quilts in there!!

p.s. Tomorrow I should have another baby to share with y'all~pray everything goes well for my daughter Katie and her new little one, Oliver John!!

Here he is:
Oliver John Dufrene; 8 lbs. 4 oz. All doing well!

Pink Saturday

Good morning! A gorgeous day here in South Louisiana and I'm looking forward to a beautiful weekend! I haven't joined Pink Saturday in a while but have a little time this morning to do some pink browsing again with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. I hope everyone is enjoying nice weather and having a good time too!! 

Today I'm sharing a birthday project today that I made for my great niece. I made a little coat hanger and crocheted around it. Then I crocheted a little cupcake and made a matching nightgown and robe for her American Girl. I love sewing and making things for those I love! 

I also made a gift for one of Katie's friends who had a little boy. His room is decorated with rockets so I appliqued a rocket and free motioned stitched a saying on a taggy blanket. Sweet babies. I'm so looking forward to Katie having her little boy Ollie any day now. More fun times ahead!

 Happy Pink Saturday to y'all all!

For some reason I couldn't link to How Sweet the Sound all weekend so trying again.
