Chirp, Chirp

Hello everyone!  I've been busy with a lot of projects, starting with some pillowcases made for  ConKerr Cancer.  Most of my LQSs support this worthy cause which makes donating easy, just sew them up and drop them off.  Each pillowcase made gets about a yard of fabric out of my stash thereby making room for some new fabric. 
I finished the binding on the table runner.  It's a nasty job but had to be done.  I hate hand sewing the binding but hate the look of it machine sewn so I'm stuck.  I know some of you like the hand sewing part (probably the same people who like applique, lol!) and I wish you lived next door to me.
I spotted this fabric at my LQS and was inspired to make a small quilt for my DD.  Her room at Oxford is strictly the bare essentials.  The bed linens are provided and are all white.  A little color was needed so I made a little quilt to hang up.  I was quite pleased with the results.
I made this a while ago in pinks and purples for a doll quilt swap I was involved in.  Here's a close-up of the free motion quilting,
and that bird fabric that got me started, in one of the windows.  I wished I'd put white in the other window once I was done, for balance.  Still cute I think.
I love these little labels.  I re-discovered them recently having forgotten I'd purchased them in the first place.  They are nicely finished an all sides,

And finally a picture from my iPhone taken in the bookstore just because it was so gosh darn cute.  I love chihuahua dogs and this little guy leaves me with cute-overload!  I'd love to get one but I don't think my 16 year old cat would ever forgive me.

Until next time, happy sewing! and thanks for visiting.

Love the fabric for your daughter's quilt and love the little label! I hope she's enjoying Oxford. Your free-motion quilting is just exquisite.
