Baby Sun Hat

 Today I just took the courage to cut into that cute heart fabric to make the sun hat (#2 on my July Finishing goal. I didn't use the pattern I had for the hat, which had 6 panels, instead I used the pattern from this site. It was the right size for my baby so I went with that.

Fits like a glove on my daughter

Eid Banner

Eid Mubarak sign July Finish # 4 is completed. I think it is okay but needs a little bit more pizzaz, may  be some glitter, hmmm.  My son says the moon looks like a banana. May be I should redo that. It does kind of look like a silver banana.

Template cut out for the banner

Eid Mubarak means Blessed Festival

String of Pearls

This quilt is on my July Finishing Goal and on Finish Along Q3 list. I am so glad I chose to get it quilted rather than quilt it myself on my machine with that tiny throat space. I made this quilt top as part of  QAL @ Christa's Quilts in which she used the pearl bracelet fabrics and hence the name. Well I just couldn't come up with a better name so the 'String of Pearls' stands.
The String of Pearls quilt gifted to my daughter. 
Pieced Back of the quilt. I really liked the way it turned out. Looks like it could be the top as well. Not a clear photo though.
Beautifully quilted by Carole Staples on her long-arm machine.
