pillowcase dress

This weekend I was able to get some sewing done. Not as much as I would have liked, but anything is better than nothing!

First up was this dress that I made for Lilah. I love this pattern (yes, I'm still so new to sewing I had to use one! haha!) because it finishes off the dress so nicely! The bias tape, the large hem on the bottom, etc.

I'm making the same dress above (different fabrics) for a girl that was in Noah's class this past year. I have the fabrics and am hoping to get all the fabric cut tonight!

Then I spent some time cutting fabric for my next quilt. Well, since I actually have 3 going at once right now I guess that's not very specific....It's a squares-within-squares quilt that I saw, and modified to be jelly roll/charm pack friendly. I'm making it as a thank-you for my midwife, so I only have three weeks to get it finished! Luckily, all my print cuts are made, and now I only have to cut the white fabric!

And today is day 7 of the 9-patch quilt along. Which means that if I do nothing more today, I only have 3 to catch up on. Unfortunately I have so many irons in the fire I think that is exactly what will happen!
