Wow, it's been quite a week, hasn't it? I've got lots of things to share with you today, but first I want to show you a quilt my friend Pam finished this week!
Pam is a very lucky lady - her mother-in-law is a clown, and in the past had bought bolts of fabrics that she made her costumes out of. Well, she let Pam dig around in the fabric closet, and Pam found the wonderful clown print fabric in this quilt.
The balloons and balls in the print made the choice of quilt pattern easy - Circle Around by Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts! I think Pam did a fabulous job on this quilt - and she pieced her back, too, which was a new experience for her. And it looks great!
I managed to completely finish both of the little reversible dresses I was making for a friend. I think they came out really nice!
And I quilted and bound the ministry quilt for the boy in Louisiana today! I think I'm going to call this one Bayou Dreams.
It's made by the block design that Fat Quarterly is doing a quilt-along with right now - it's a great block and works up really easy!
Our version is scrappy, and I actually made up kits and gave them out to some of the ladies in our sewing group to make blocks; then I used their blocks and some of my own to make this top.
It's about 60" square, my go-to size for these ministry quilts.
Then I ended my day with some heavy-duty cleaning - yuck!! When my husband called to tell me he was on his way home, I told him what I was doing and he actually asked me when my evil twin, the one who doesn't clean, would be home! But at least he took me out to dinner - Five Guys burgers and fries - yumm!!
I'm going to be linking up to Amy's Sew & Tell Friday, and Andrea's Lush Friday. I'm going to miss out on Amy's link-up next week, because I don't have an Amy Butler project that I'll be able to post - too many things that have to get done to take time out to make anything else. Is anyone else in that predicament? If you'd be interested in a one-time linky party for those of us who haven't gotten in on the Amy Butler party, let me know in your comment - if there's enough of us, I'll try to set something up on my blog!
So what have you done this week?
