Design Wall Monday 3-26-12

Not much new on my design wall today.  I only sewed up at Jenny's house.  Here's the little outfit I made for Sophia. 
 You might notice she isn't wearing this outfit.  We tried to put it on twice and she screamed and took it off before we really had it on!  Hum, does she hate yellow?  Do lady bugs scare her?  Or was she just tired?  I don't know.  I know the shorts are too big now but I don't know about the dress.  And, considering it is only March and she'll be growing a lot I am not worried if this doesn't fit her now. 

Here's a charity quilt I quilted yesterday.  It is a darling little panel with two borders on it. 
I ditch stitched between each block and around the borders.  Then I tried different fill techniques. (One of the great reasons to do charity quilts beyond the normal feel good feelings.) Here are three close ups of what I tried.  Oops!  I haven't knotted and trimmed the strings yet so that's what the funny lines are.

I didn't have much on last week's goals as I knew I'd be busy away from the house a lot.

  1. Sophia's outfit is just so cute!! Little girl clothes are just so fun to make. Love how you quilted that panel, you really made it special.

  2. The little outfit is adorable as is the quilt. As far as not getting the outfit on her, with the way the weather's been here in VA, I'm sure there will be plenty of opportunities to try again before she outgrows it.

  3. Sophia's outfit is darling. I am sure she was a tired camper and over stimulated. As summer nears, it will be a favorite of hers.

  4. Sophia's outfit is gorgeous. I love yellow. Maybe she will be in the mood the next time you try.

  5. What a cute outfit. I love ladybugs :)

  6. Adorable the ladybug buttons.
    Great idea to experiment with quilting designs.
