waves and bees

I finished putting all my blocks together for this waverunner.
They are all 10" square.
I didn't follow the directions completely....surprise, sursprise!!
As you can see I used that inspiration fabric
and saved myself some time. Didn't have to piece those blocks!
Thanks Victoria!
It was a fun quilt to make!


And this little girl is ready for a parade!


Thankfully...Mommy finally got her act together..


and whipped together this....



Busy BEE costume!!!

I'm probably MOST proud of that little bee and flower
on her shirt!!!
I have a leftover bag of fabric pieces already attached to
that iron-on stuff...steam-a-seam.
I cut out that little bee and the flower was already in there..
woo hoo!!
THEN...After ironing them on....
I just ran around them with my sewing machine..
feed dogs down...just like I was quilting!
VIOLA!!!


I'm adding this to amylou's sew and tell!!

  4. LOVE the colors in your waverunner quilt . . . gorgeous. (But how can you go wrong with blue?!)

    Your little bee is darling. Best of all it looks like it was a costume that was comfortable for her to wear. Good job, Mom!

  6. I love the this quilt--I thought it was pieced (and thinking I'd never go to that trouble). Very effective. Cute little bee!

  16. Your waverunner quilt turned out great. Love the way you used that coordinating fabric. I may have to copy that idea (you don't mind do you?), because my waverunner is doing nothing for me at the moment. It needs something.

    Your daughter (and her costume) is adorable!! She looks happy to be wearing something her mommy made.
