Tess's Quilt



I have finished the appliqued bows on Tess's Quilt (Tess is my 2, almost 3 year old Granddaughter). This quilt will be for her "big" bed when they move into their new home. As you can see it is not quilted yet. I want to make the back of the quilt the same as the dust ruffle, so need to do a little fabric shopping with my daughter. Some of the churn dash blocks in the quilt were made by members of my club - Stitchin' Friends as part of a pizza box block swap. Sure was a fun swap and it makes the quilt more special to know friends helped to make it. Can you buddies find your block?

I also got real lucky at a yard sale at my daughter's church Saturday and found these beautiful embroidered pillow cases. One of the church members made them and I think they look so pretty with the quilt top so they will be going along for the new "big" bed.

Hey - don't forget to sign up for my pincushion swap if you are interested. You do not have to have a blog, just send me an email saying you want to participate.
