Here is Nick! Yes, he is sewing and the quilt he is sewing on is one HE quilted!!! Nick is 9 years old and a wonderful... seamster? ;-)
He picked out a sweet little panel for his new baby sister and then he picked out a quilting design and his wonderful mom- my FAVORITE cousin, let him use her long arm to quilt it and as you can see from this second picture he did a fabulous job!! AND, trust me, he did not pick out a simple beginner pattern! yeah Nick!!
Now here is MY lovely Maggie in her new jacket! This is from the original pattern designed by fellow smallest guild member Flori!
And here is the lovely Miss Maggie from the back......... equally adorable!
I made the base for this jacket using that lasagna method of sewing strips of scraps together. It looked like candy to me when it was laid out, and on sweet little Maggie it looks like more eye candy.
And here she is in a new bib made from another Quilty Indulgence pattern. There was enough of the yummy strawberry fabric to make her the matching hat. Of course the well dressed baby has a hat to match every outfit, right?
Could that smile warm you heart any more? That's me in the purple shirt walking her around the house........... her willing slave!
