A Quilt for Evelyn

Evelyn is almost a year old and I am just starting to work on her quilt.  I made a quilt for Lillian (here) to hang on her wall when she was about this age so Evelyn needs one too.
This is really a work in progress and I don't  have any idea which direction it will take.
I can see it needs more brown and maybe a little less green.
I enjoy working with liberated letters and continue to be inspired by designers like Tonya at Lazy Gal and Gwen Marston  along with Mary Lou Weidman.  Their work is so creative and original.

So she would not feel left out I stitched up two little dresses for Lillian.

Happy stitching,


  1. Love your idea for Evelyn's quilt! (The dresses look like fun too)

  2. Super cute blocks! Love your colors. I agree with you--wonderful inspiration.:)

  3. What a cute quilt! I bought Tonya's book because I love what I see everyone doing with her lettering style, but I haven't tried it yet.
    Sweet little dresses!

  4. me gusta esa idea genial para las niñas, entiendo que son pequeñas?
    quizás como mis nietas?
