Red, White, and Blue

Using this pattern, I made a little 4th of July dress for Callie with some fabric I bought on clearnce at Joann's:

I need to adjust the length, but overall I think it's really cute on her.

Quilting Bee (Sharon)

For our final month of MSQB, Sharon wants to make a quilt for her husband. She shared a mosaic of pictures she put together of grass, sky, beautiful landscapes, wildlife, and such to show us the color scheme she was going for (blues, greens, oranges, browns).

I ended up choosing to do a pinwheel block for her, using this tutorial.

Here's how it turned out (sorry my picture is a little blurry):

PJ bottoms

Using this tutorial, I made Callie some summer pj bottoms. I purchased 1 yard of a lightweight knit fabric for 50% off at Joann's and was able to cut out two pairs of capris and one pair of shorts. They were very simple since I used a pair of pants that already fit her as my "pattern" and just shortened them. I made this pair in under 30 minutes: Two more pairs to sew up :)
