emily's trunk show

Don't you love to see your past projects at other people's houses?  This is some of what I found at my daughter's house, made from my sewing machine:





On the top right we have what I call a summer blanket, or basically when your toddler wants something cool to the touch against his/her skin to nap with during the hot summer months.  Use your favorite fabric on the top (heather ross, princess and the pea).   I like to back them with that "satin backed flannel" you can get at Joann's.  It measures about the size of a fat quarter.  Perfect for carting around or transitioning into a doll quilt.  You can read about it here.


Next on the top is a doll quilt I made from left overs and a cool binding made with chenille.  You can read about it here.



This boat quilt was made for child #1 in this house hold where I'm visiting:




She is quickly adjusting to her new big sister duties. (that's a breast pump . . . she came and asked me if I would turn it on for her. #wantstobejustlikehermomma)




This one is a "play quilt".  I started making this quick project when I couldn't keep up with pieced baby quilts for gifts.  It's basically 2 pieces of the cutest fabric available, quilted, and bound with a ruffle binding.  You can learn about that here.

We just had grandbaby #8, so I've been busy making crib sheets and other baby stuff . . . nothing really excited to share, except this cute little one:
