Back to school!

My niece had a little baby girl this summer, so I made this cute girlie quilt for her! My mom and I went to some amazing quilt stores on Cape Cod this July, and I got tons of jumbo rick rack to use on my projects. The pink was perfect for this quilt.

I embroidered the baby's name on the center panel.

I am back to school already (after what seemed like a super short summer vacation) but it feels good to be working again and being with the little middle school kids. This year the kids are great and it looks like we will have a wonderful year.

Over the summer, I did do quite a bit of sewing, but no blogging. I have a quilt that I am making Kenny and it was my mission to get it done so that I could give it to the quilter who does my important quilts. While I do a lot of my own quilting, I only trust Debbie (Divine Quilting) to do the ones that I think will be real heirlooms that take me a long time to piece, embroider, etc.

Later today I will try to post a few of the other things I have done lately. See you soon!

That's the cutest little quilt for a lucky baby! I hope those students are still as cute as they were at the start of the year. =)
