Hi there!

 The girls started school on Monday, so far they love it.

 I've been doing tons of sewing, here are some skirts I finished a few weeks ago, these were some of my favorites.

And just because I needed to add another quilt to my list of quilts in progress, I started another quilt last night.  Using Denyse Schmidt's fabric from JoAnn's.  I found some of the new Sugar Creek yesterday and had to play with it along with my collection of Picnic and Fairgrounds.

 The idea for the quilt came from Diary of a Quilter, when I saw this vintage lattice quilt, I knew I had to recreate it.  I love the slight wonkiness of it, and I am trying to make mine slightly wonky by varying the width of the strips in the string blocks.
I'm using a mustardy yellow color for my lattice, I had a bunch of it and it looked good with my other fabrics.  I think it would be fun to make a red lattice one with some of my vintage fabrics.

Those blocks are amazing, I really like the mustard it does good things for the prints. It will look wonderful finished!

Your skirts are so cute, wish I had a little girl to make one for.
