Halloween Dresses!

I was shopping the other day with my Grandaughter Jayden 
and we came across some Halloween Eyeball fabric, she 
says to me "Granny, I want an Eyeball dress!". Well, the 
fabric was $12 a yard, so NO GO....

So, afterwards we went over to Joanns and 
she picked out this cute fabric with 
Green Bats!  So I made her this super quick
and easy pillowcase dress...she loves it!

This second one I made for a co-workers daughter, it has 
Halloween Taffys all over it and glitter...very cute!
She wore it to school and it fit perfect, so cute!


Linking up with Richard and Tanya quilts for a Friday finish!!

but SO worth it!!

I'm blinded by Polka Dots!

My daughter-in-law Kasey is such a sweetheart..
and a patient girl at that.  She asked for this 
Polka Dot quilt a couple of years ago and
with everything in life going on, I just didnt get it 
done for her..bad bad me!

I am happy to report and show that I have gotten her quilt
together and that she WILL get it this Christmas!  
It is bright bright bright, exactly like she wanted and I have to 
admit, its right up my alley with its wonderful bursts of color!

Here it is on the longarm frame, I am doing simple loopy
loops on it with pink thread.  She asked for the yummy
hot pink tie dye flannel for the backing. 

Its just about finished being quilted then I can get the
binding on, I am thinking a nice solid color for the binding..
what do you all think?

For my QBSA swap this month, my partner
was Debbie in Canada. 

She requested any block in Yellows and
white on whites...I think this lonestar
block fits the bill!!

Its on its way!
