My oldest wanted to be a “Goth Fairy” for Halloween. Luckily her two casts go perfectly with her black outfit. She picked out the wings and fabric. I sewed the skirt.
Here’s a little witch on a bike. She won 2nd place at a fall festival’s costume party! She was thrilled to pieces.
And the littlest munchkin was just thrilled to be outside in her pajamas!
I practiced a lot of fmq this weekend. Some is okay, some not so okay, but overall I am happy with the results. It was fun to try something new besides squiggles. I don’t know if I could ever get “good” at fmq though. I find it very difficult and tedious. I did a lot of seam ripping, too.
This quilt will be living at our house, though, so I’m not too worried about it. I am making all three girls identical quilts to gift to them during Advent. I backed this one with flannel so I think I will use different flannel for each so the girls can tell them apart.
I love the cheater panel in the middle of the quilt. It was designed by Sheri Berri a few years ago. I just had to have it!
I also got a quilt top finished today during the big hurricane/storm that is coming through Maryland today. I kept praying the electricity wouldn’t go out so I could keep sewing!
This quilt is for a little boy who is three. I haven’t decided how to quilt it yet. I am thinking just squiggles this time, or vertical straight lines. What do you think?
I hope everyone is staying out of harm’s way and is safe tonight.
