Pillowcases - Sew Much Fun!

Perhaps one of the fastest, easiest projects I have ever sewn.  Each "burrito roll" pillowcase took under two hours to make.  These will travel with me to Idaho, a little something from grandma, for the little girlies.  NOTE:  There's an outstanding tutorial posted on YouTube by TheCraftyGemini (Vanessa), at  Clear and easy directions made this pillowcase project a breeze; highly recommended!

L'il Keiki Dude

L'il Dude
Here's l'il keki dude to match the keiki girl pattern.  Patterns are set; time to piece together a quilt.

Sunbonnet Keiki Tutorial

My first tutorial!  Kathy this one's for you.  All because I want you to try out the Applique Pressing Sheet.  Isn't it fabulous?  Oops...forgot to note...allow pieces to cool before removing from the Applique Pressing Sheet; it can get very hot.

Sweet Tea Time for Natalie

Picked up this pre-printed apron kit at a recent quilt show, as well as the matching table topper (fabric and instructions).  Both were on sale...yippee!  My granddaughter, Natalie, who will be three years old in June likes tea time, so couldn't resist whipping this sweet set up for her birthday.  The table topper will make a fine picnic blanket.  Truth is I'm not crazy about sewing up pre-printed things, generally speaking, but this one was worth the fuss.  Happy Birthday, dear Natalie!
