This is a lap quilt I made for an elderly man. The fabric is from Sweetwater. I wanted a little bit of a scrappy look, but I had a yen to make the log cabin pattern, which I haven't done for many years. I did a simple crosshatch quilting with a soft flannel on the back.

This is Sandra Betzina's V1275 again. This time I made the front with the gathered insert. It is easy to do. I actually took out some of the front gathers. I am not fond of a lot of poofy ness in the front. It fits well otherwise and, again, the raglan sleeve is nice.


This is fabric from Hancocks. It's actually a burn-out (the white stripe) but I interfaced the whole dress and like the way it drapes. It's from an old vintage pattern I have, and there are any number of patterns around that you could use. It's pretty simple - just front, back and sleeve. I like it a lot and am waiting for some warm weather around here to get a chance to wear it!
