Remember the selvage strips from a few weeks ago?  Well, I decided to make a pillow top with them.

I like the definition that piping adds to the edges
One work in progress finished (yay!) this week.

Here is a picture of my granddaughter's play porch with her new tie dyed curtains installed (from last week's post).

This week was also about pillowcase dresses.  My daughter, daughter-in-law, and myself made this one out of organic cotton from Modern Whimsy by Laurie Wisbrun.  My granddaughter chose a peach batik from Timeless Treasures for the tie.  It made for a cute and comfortable dress.

Another pillowcase dress is in the works, but more about that next week.
The best part - this dress took under an hour to make

  The Christmas stockings are coming along steadily, but no progress on the I Spy quilt this week.
What have you been working on lately?
P.S. - Check out the  Freshly Pieced and Quiltsy Blogs to see more works in progress, and to link up your projects.


  1. The tye dye curtains are just as awesome as I thought they would be - seriously fun!! I'll bet she loves them. (Love the pillow as well)

  2. Great way to use up those scraps!
    And the curtains and dress are so lucky little granddaughter :)

  3. Love that cushion and could quite happily live in the play porch :)

  4. I am totally in love with that pillow! It's a must-do! blessings, marlene

  5. Your granddaughter is indeed lucky to have that play porch! I would love to have a room just for the grandkids to call their own.
