We are on the brink of another glorious, beautiful weekend! My husband is enjoying another birthday today, so we have a weekend long celebration of family and food and relaxation.
My daughter and I are invited to a tea party birthday for our neighbor tomorrow. Her birthday was this week as well. I decided to convert my plans for my Valentine table topper into a gift for Emily. Here is the quilt top I pieced based on a free pattern put out by Allison through Cluck Cluck Sew:
I was going to use it just for seasonal decoration, but I thought it would make a perfect pillow sham for a 9 year old who loves pink and purple.
Now, for some personalization…
Ignore the wrinkles and such…
It has been a while since I did some embroidery work. But I love how it turned out!
I just need to back it with some white fabric and do some quilting, then make the envelope-style backing pieces with a purple polka dot fabric I picked up last night and stitch it all together!
After that – I think I am going to knock out the last blocks for the Snapshots Quiltalong. Getting so very close on that finish.
Last weekend I was able to finish up the car block and started with all my prepped and labeled pieces (I really want the BLUE set of Alphabitties now, but I have two packages of the pink ones already!):
Then the final result:
And lastly – my Mom is planning the wedding for my brother and sweet fiancé in May, so she brought over some sample dresses for her granddaughter to try on. This was early on a Saturday morning during cartoon hour, so it isn’t intended to be a glamour photo. I think she will be getting a hair cut this weekend also, now that I see this picture again… 🙂 I can also spot in the background that it is time to rotate my Lori Holt Bee in my Bonnet calendar now too!
Have a super weekend everyone!
