Another finish and Miss "Lemoney" Milly


Yah!! The binding is on and the last stitch sewn on yesterday on my Pink Lemondade, a slightly large baby version of the OC mystery quilt done in 1930's reproduction fabrics.

This is my second finish for Peg's challenge of finishing five by the end of July.

The quilting inspirations came from here. The binding is pieced from purple FQs. Except for the batting and thread, the fabrics came from my stash. :-)

Meet Miss Lemoney Milly


I put the last finishing touches to her this morning. She the mystery project that I worked on before my Vegas trip. You can find the pattern in "Gift" by Rosalie Quinlan. I cheated a little by painting her face on instead stitchings, and I made little yo-yos for her blouse instead of using buttons.


She matches with Pink Lemonade quite well, don't you think? My intention for Miss Lemoney Milly is to go home with the quilt to whomever the quilt belong to.


Hmm... does she count as a third finish? Maybe?...

Your Pink Lemonade turned out beautifully, and Miss Lemoney Milly looks right at home. Great Job.
