Well I think this should count as a design wall. There is something new hanging on my wall!
There are quilters that finish a quilt in just a few days. I am not one of those people. I either get bored with a project or I don't have the time/energy to finish it quickly. For those reasons you have to keep seeing all the small steps of my projects.
This should be the last time you see Viola's Jewelry Box. It is finally bound and hanging on my wall.
I am still in love with this quilt, and it is my husbands favorite quilt I have ever made. And I have made quite a few!
Head over to Patchwork Times and see what everyone else has been working on. You will have to click on the link in the right column, I can't figure out how to link on my phone!
Have a great week!

The next border has the words "My true love gave to me" appliquéd on it. I am halfway through the stitching and then just a few more seams until it is finished.

The project with the mystery ruffles is finished!
I wanted to make Easter dresses for my girls and I am happy they are complete. Even a week early! Usually I am a last minute girl so this is out of character for me.
The two skirts will be paired with peach shirts, leggings and sandals. The dress at the top will have a white shirt and leggings under it, as well as sandals.
The pillowcase dress is probably my favorite. My original plans were to have the two little girls in matching dresses. But Big K didn't want to have the same dress as her little sister. Then I planned on making matching skirts for Big K and Big L. Well that didn't go over to well with Big L. So to make everyone happy, everyone got something different.
I can't decide if the skirts need something else like a little flowers or more ribbon. I know I should be happy with the results but I always look back and wish I had made different decisions. But I don't have the time to remake them, so I am going to learn from my mistakes and go on. Plus the girls are excited about their new clothes, it will take all my convincing to make them wait until Sunday to wear them!
