A few fun things to share. A few months ago, I attended a sewing conference where we worked on a service project making these pillowcase dresses to donate to Little Dresses for Africa. Last week this picture was sent to host BabyLock by founder Rachel O’Neill. If those sweet girls don’t just melt the heart, I don’t know what does.
If you would like to contribute pillowcase dresses, they are always in need! You can read more about Little Dresses for Africa here.
While we’re talking about doing good, is anyone aware of any quilt drives or projects for flood victims in Baton Rouge? I’d love to hear about them. Please leave them in the comments. If you are looking for a way to contribute Kathy Brown, BR resident, suggested the Baton Rouge Food Bank is in on the front lines and can use all the help it can get.
Last May I shared pictures of this pixilated rose quilt made by Trish Poolson for Riley Blake Designs. I’ve since had many people email to ask where they could find the pattern and I’m excited to share that the free Pixelated Rose pattern by is now available here.

Last thing: I’ve been on the road this week. Here’s a quick sneak peak. I’m excited to be back home and tell you more about it this week.
