I really wanted to surprise my sister for her birthday with a quilt.
The only issue was that I had never made a quilt before.
So, I decided that it was time...
Renee showed me how to cut out,
sew together, and iron the seams
(Yes, there is a specific way to iron them)
Then, I went to the quilt shop,
(where I took my class to make a Messenger bag)
for some extra help, and went home with this-
I thought that I would need yet another class,
but decided just to go for it
and try to finish on my own.
Two of the fabrics that I used were from
linens that Sherrie and I both used
for three out of our six babies.
The pattern was called
and we both Loved it!
There was the yellow and white striped bed ruffle,
and the white crib sheet.
Both with the charming little
"Bunny Jo" pattern.
I accidentally found the linens in her basement
about two years ago,
and I sneaked them into my suitcase,
just in case I actually tackled quilting.
Well, yes, miracle of miracles,
I actually made the quilt!
I finished it by sewing a border around it
and then sewed on the binding
with the same red polk-a-dot fabric.
On the back I used an old, soft "Shabby Chic"
sheet with little flowers on it.
I wanted it to be super
Comfy & Soft!
She loved it, and put it on the back of her couch.
She didn't have to do that...
I made it for napping and snuggling.
Here she is all wrapped up!
As some of you know, Sherrie has started chemo.
So, also in this picture, she is sporting her new wig.
Her and I went in search of a wig for her.
The first one, that our new friend Belinda
(Who is the owner if the shop)
brought out, was this one.
I thought that it was very appropriate
because it was very
and Sher and I have always
Loved the Brady Bunch!
But Sherrie doesn't want to be Carol,
she wants to be Sherrie.
So, she decided on this one-
She Is So Cute!
Sherrie and her new friend Belinda.
A girl needs her hair..
Happy Friday Pretties!
