A personal blog about quilting, sewing and life as a mother. Lots of free tutorials including beginning quilting tutorials, binding tutorials, and other sewing projects like bags, quilt blocks and nursing covers.
Remember on Seven Brides for Seven Brothers how all the girls make new spring frocks out of old quilts?
Well, I’m not much for wearing quilts, but I did find some pretty inspiration for spring clothes I want to make. (And the fact that some of them might be made from vintage sheets means that maybe I’m not that far off from those Oregon Brides.)
I’m loving these two skirts from Boden. (I LOVE Boden. Just not their prices.)
But I’m thinking I might be capable of these.
And look at these beautiful pieces.
Check out this talented gal’s photo stream on Flickr. She’s made some GREAT pieces!Well, spring WAS here last week. Sunny and in the 60’s. Of course it was the week we were sick. Now that we are well it is currently 40 degrees outside and in was snowing earlier. Boo.
