I finally started my Bottled Rainbows Quilt! This is my first quilt block, Ruby Love Birds. I had originally planned on doing my quilt with simple squared up scraps and then had this wonderful idea a couple weeks ago to arrange my pieces with Mandalas in mind.
I will definitely plan my design out before I begin to sew next time -- this time I cut and sewed as I went and realized about half way that I would have preferred to have had a plan, oops. I do love the way the reverse side looks on this!! This is a quilt-as-you-go project, therefor with each block you instantly get that soft, puffy dimension -- LOVE that!
I spent some sewing time recently putting together a little something for our sweet friend Sohia, who just turned four this past weekend. I made her a very special Princess Flower Crown, following some wonderful felt flower tutorials I found via Pinterest. If anyone is interested, I'd be happy to send you the links.
And of course I had to make her a pillow, as well! Once again, Happy Birthday Sophia!!!
Finally, I received my first news from someone to have made my Fabric Lover's Apron!!! Catherine did such an amazing job! I hope she doesn't mind me sharing a photo here -- you can visit her blog to see the full post.
If any of you use my tutorial, please do let me know -- it really made my day!!!
