Okay, now that that's done (!!!) I'm going to finish up the dolly dress quilts and make a little doll quilt for my niece's 4th birthday.... and that gets me wondering if I should start designing doll quilts to sell with the baby quilts? hmmmm....

Here's Sue with her new borders and still waiting for some appliqued butterflies to fly around the white border.
And here are two dolly dress quilts (the dolls are from the dolly dress cheater panels) and they've been sewn with the patterned blocks for ages, but I added the borders today. I think some pretty little flowers may be appliqued onto the white border. I hope these will eventually end up keeping twin baby girls nice and warm :)

This is what I've been working on the last week. This is just the center of the quilt, which I haven't finished designing yet. I think it will have to have a very wide border with appliqued butterflies flying around... maybe some caterpillars? toadstools? ladybugs?
The butterfly pattern came from here - it was love at first site! http://fourwisemonkeys.blogspot.com/2010/08/tutorial-butterfly-block.html

It just "sew" happens that I had $47 left in my paypal account, and this morning I found a mother's day weekend coupon code at Sew Mama Sew for 15% off everything in your cart, and finally the long awaited Sew Cherry was available at their store... I bought a quarter yard of each (minus 3) fabrics in the line, and minus the 15%, pluss shipping came to $47.80!! I hope the rest of my day goes that well. It's going to be a CRAZY long day with boy activities. Off to the first baseball game of the season!

yum yum yum... The gnome fabric is to die for (I'm crazy for gnomes) And the Sunbonnet Sue fabric is very timely as I'm starting to work on a new quilt with a Sue in the center, surrounded by butterflies and flowers... and the Sew Cherry is just awesome. I've been waiting a while for this line to come out - makes my knees buckle... Hopefully I will make these all mine :)
