Finished: District Commissioner gift, memory quilt

This is a quilt made of contributions from the West Point Grey Girl Guides District in Vancouver, BC. There is a square from each unit, as well as some additional squares for various groups within the District network.

I really enjoyed putting it together and I love the variety in the squares. The “flat” side is a pattern from Hoffman Fabrics called “Izumi Pond” and I chose it for its relative simplicity and asymmetry that I though would compliment the variety of the group memory blocks arranged on the other side.

Individual square photos are also available if you contact me to share with your unit!

Reconstructed strip skirts

Back view of 1 of two reconstructed blue jean skirts I made for the girls last week. Quinn chose the fabric one day and I added a few stash fabrics, after making one for an adult friend two years ago who still raves about it. The ruffle was an addition so I could use full width fat quarter strips cut in half (9″ without being too short). Hmm I have front view too, with bonus dog nose!

I am on a roll with this publishing method I tell you, no doubt more mediocre photos coming soon.
