I worked on this little quilt and finished putting it together. I think it turned out really cute. I'm going to take it to my friend, Judy, this week and have her quilt it for me. I want to get it quilted quickly and finished so Trent can have it for his room. I'm only about 10 months late on this....no big deal, right? I embroidered the blocks and never could decide how to set them together. I finally saw a pattern that I liked and did some changes to it. Here's some pictures. I really did press it first, I laid it on the back of the chair and then my husband sat against it. I didn't want to walk back upstairs to iron it again tonight...I'll show it again when it's quilted. I took some close up pictures of the individual cars.
I also made this little needlecase. I made it with my favorite fabric and I really like it. I only have a little bit of this fabric left and I'll probably make a small quilt with it. We'll see...I'm looking for a pattern now. When I bought this fabric, I bought all of it that was on the bolt. I wish I could find some more. I put one of my little tatted butterflies on it too.
