End of the Year Teacher Gifts

One of Ella's teachers is a boy - so I didn't know what to give him. He has a 2-yr old, so I thought I would whip up one of the "sally" dresses - turned out cute - he loved it!For Ella's other teacher, I made a cute quilted zippered bag. It was my first time quilting - I had several problems with it - but in the end it turned out darling.
Ella made some bottle cap pendants to go inside the purse - I love these.

4th of July Dresses

I made all the cousins matching 4th of July outfits. The smaller girls got the T-shirt dresses and the older girls got the skirt/shirt combo. I love the fabric and they all look so cute together.

4th of July Quilt

My Liberty Quilt is finished! I love this Moda Red, White, and Bold line. I wish they would have it forever! I also love pinwheels - and I like them mixed in with solid blocks so you can really see the pinwheel. Lately I have been appliqueing words in my quilts. I also love the scrappy border - just pick up what's left on the floor when you finish your quilt top and make a border!
