Finished Quilt Top

Yesterday I shared a quilt top that I was working on for work. Well, I finished it today. When I went through the blocks again I realized I didn't have as much unpicking as I had originally thought (which is always a good thing). :)

Today I finished it.

Isn't it pretty? :)

Hopefully we can get it on the longarm soon so I can bind it & we can put it on display in the shop. Can't wait to see what I get to make next!

Also, yesterday I went into town to help with the 4H activity day. They were making Little Dresses for Africa using Nancy's Notions pattern. It took longer than expected, but it went pretty well. They did a great job with the bias tape, good thing we got the extra wide kind! They'll all be on display at the Niobrara County Fair in a couple weeks, so I'll be sure to snap a picture to share all the lovely dresses these girls & boys made.

Little Dresses for Africa actually sends these dresses all over the world, including here in the US. So, if you have a little extra fabric or pillowcases & a few hours, I highly recommend sewing up a few dresses for needy girls around the globe. Nancy's Notions also has a shorts pattern that you can purchase to sew up for the boys.

Thanks for stopping by!
