CG finish!

My first one:-)

My Aunt Sandy's quilt is done! All quilted, bound and washed. Ready to be labeled and go off to it's new home. The only thing I don't like about how this one turned out is how you can't see the stars very well. There are 12 stars hidden throughout and I fussy cut the Angel print for the star centers. It's really hard to see them in the photos. I quilted all over in a loopy pattern except the stars. I thought if I didn't quilt them, they would show up more. They look a little puffy now, but it's ok, I think.
Measures about 65x75

And I took the leftover Sent with Love charm squares from my hearts quilt and made  Bella a dress for Valentine's Day:

My model doesn't hold very still, but you get the idea:-)

Started quilting my other Aunt's quilt yesterday and hope to have that finished this weekend. I should be able to finish all my Charming girl projects before the end of the month. YAY~!

And for everyone attending the party, see you tomorrow!! I can't wait!

Yellow and blue quilts always have a special place in my heart! I love that color combo.

Your Little Model is doing a great job showing off your dress.

See ya at the party!

Oh, Lisa -- your quilt is SO PRETTY! Your aunt is going to be so happy! And, I love the dress you made - and what a cutie pie your model is! Way to sew girl - I better get off of the computer and get busy (giggle)!

Lisa, Is that quilt from the Jelly roll book? I think we made the same quilt. I'm making one from the Jelly roll book called Hidden Stars. I have it on my design wall. It almost made it for January but I couldn't get the rows all pieced together. I used Sandy Gervais' Essence Line. I love when great minds think alike! LOL!
