If I was a quilt, What would I look like?
























I am thinking something like this.


Oh? You need an explanation? I think the label says it all....
























You could throw in that I have a "colorful" personality and at times, mouth! I see things in black and white and my mind is always going, going , going....The beads represent people who are important to me...
I did this mini quilt for a Swapbot swap. My first one. It is for a woman who is an anthropologist who of course enjoys translating peoples art or quilts into her studies. I just kind of let my brain go (ok, quit snickering, it was easy) and thought of my strengths and flaws as I sewed. I hope she likes it...
I also made litte Ava B another girly outfit minus the skull and tutu..(scroll down and you will see what I am talking about.)





















Little shoes made of linen.












they were made to match a onsie dress and floppy eared hat.......

















Here she is, the little princess all decked out.....Julie and I had to laugh. She has grown so much in a week that this outfit is actually going for my nieces new baby girl due in April.....I am making doubles of everything...Baby girls rock...they really do!

Your quilt is interesting and that little outfit is just too cute. Love the little girlie too.

Pat said...

The girlie outfit is SO cute!!! (and so is the girl who is wearing it). I love the label explaining your quilt....you are so creative. I think you should go to my today's blog post and click on the button it tells you about over there.....it might be a creative challenge for you. (At least go read about it!)

Laurie said...

Melinda you are so multi talented!! I love the baby clothes! As far as a quilt, I would have to be crazy. A crazy quilt I mean! Have a good one friend!

I would say add more red to your self portrait. Great outfits...I made Beanie a birthday dress, Adam said she might be able to wear it one more time!

The quilt is fabulous! I like the sentiment behind it. Your partner will love it. If I had to create one for myself I think I'd put progress not perfection to remind myself that it's about moving forward not getting it all right.

The girly outfits are so sweet! Girls are lots of fun, of course I'm biased as I have a daughter!

Jenny said...

Sending you a hug!

I love your mini quilt and your explanation.

I was cleaning up some of my fabric scraps today and came across some large strips of the same fabric you used in little Ava's skirt. I love this fabric.

Sewing for little girls is loads of fun.

If there were anything that might have made a crafter out of me, it was a daughter and now a granddaughter. I just love the onesie dress!

(I also love your turtle graphic!)
