LOVE that scrap quilt!!

Sheila said...

I love the scrappy quilt. I must make one. CUTE pictures of the girls : )
SWEET matching dresses.

Janet O. said...

Love the Scrappy Trips--makes me want to work on the one I started in January.
Now that's a full diaper!!
Must be an adventure sewing with Sonja in the room. : )
Your girls look so cute in their matching dresses. I used to do that for my girls when they were small, but they were only 13 months apart and everyone thought they were twins.

Wendy Kruskie said...

Pretty girls and pretty dresses!

Carla said...

Fabulous scrappy trip! Good idea for the back too.

Melody said...

Another wonderful quilt. Such beautiful girls together.

Linda said...

Love your scrappy Trip. Awesome finish.

Your scrappy quilt is beautiful! I think Sonja is saying "Oh such pretty colors Mommy!". OMG, you are a nut! (I mean that in a good way.) You weighed the diaper. LOL Too funny.

My Mom made my older sister and I matching dresses once. We had professional pictures done and I ended up wearing the same dress twice in the pictures ... once wearing the original she made for me and then a few years later I wore the hand me down (the one that was originally my older sisters). What's funny is my Mom never realized I was in the same dress twice until I mentioned it to her when I was an adult!

I wouldn't delete your finished projects from the list. Put them all at the bottom.

barb said...

do you have a pattern/tutorial for this beautiful scrappy trip around the world quilt? thanks barbara babscorbitt@gmail.com

Bella Pink said...

Hi Bea: I'm just beginning Hidden Forest quilt. Are you hand appliquéing the blocks or sewing them down by machine? Just wondering....
Also, I would put the finished ones on your list at the bottom as someone else suggested....arden
