Windows Patchwork Pillow

So now that Christmas is long gone I can show you one of the things I made for my little brother who works for Microsoft. 
He's a programmer. 
Total geek.
So he needed some geekery.
Have you noticed the new Windows logo?
It looks a little something like this pillow. 

These scrappy log cabin blocks could be a really really really addictive way to use up scraps too. 
My goodness they were fun.

Teeny Baby Dresses

My new little niece Kylie was born almost 2 weeks ago now and was only 35 weeks 5 days and weighed in at 5 lbs 14 oz. and 17 inches.

She's soooooo cute! And squishy looking! I'm very jealous that I can't hold her and am travel restricted.

Anyway, I whipped up two "itty bitty baby dresses" for her in a few of the beautiful Liberty Art Fabrics Bloomsbury Collection fabrics.

Free pattern can be found here.
I mean, she is "itty bitty."
But even then they're still too big for her!!

So cute. I need another girl... 

So I did some "birthing" last night.

Lots of it.
Thankfully of the sewing variety and not the baby variety!!
Flipping little coasters right side out does remind one of childbirth though.

It was time again to make the forty coasters for an annual retreat group with the theme "Stinky Feet Retreat" this year.
Hilarious, huh?
So I went with high heels and coordinates.
I hope they like them and that they have a great retreat.

So nice.

Sharing that is. 
I love getting pictures from people of what they have made with my patterns. 
This one was particularly gorgeous and different in a non-Christmas finish so I thought I should share it with you.
The pattern is "Dash Away All" found here.

Feel free to go leave Brea, a new-to-quilting artist, some love in her Etsy shop
