looky!

first, some polka dot loveliness that i received in the square swap. there are so many cute fabrics, these are just a few, i can't wait to start playing with them. it was a great swap, thanks katie for hosting it! i may start one of my own, anybody interested?



second, photos of my sassy apron. i started out with the lorelai pattern in "a is for apron" but i kept messing with it. the theme was fall, and she liked red, so i decided on the cream/red/brown combo. it reminds me of gingerbread men. i made a patchwork hot mat and sent some recipe cards, including sour cream apple pie.

















finally, work on the maya quilt progresses, slowly... i am ready to applique on the dots, but i am stumped about how to quilt it. squares? diamonds? do i quilt through the dots or go around them? i've never "quilted" before so i am nervous and looking for a simple, pretty way to finish it.

I can't wait to see all the things you make with the squares! Should be lots of fun.

I was part of the vintage square swap too! I am just now getting around to visiting all the participants. I love all the prints your pulled out. Can't go wrong with polka dots!
