See You In September Blog Hop - Day 9

Welcome to Day 9 of See you In September blog hop. First I wanted to thank the master mind behind these wonderful blog hops, Madm Samm and our amazing cheerleader Shari for all the encouragement throughout the Summer :).

Boy! The Summer just flew away. I had only done one major quilt in the summer but managed to cook up 3 projects to show you today.

First up is "Rainbow Skirt" using RBD small gingham. My daughter loves rainbow and she choose these color order. I used 2.5" strips to make this skirt and all together 3 Jelly Rolls.


Here is the skirt I made:

I have been wanting to sew with knit fabrics for quite some time. I wouldn't say I have mastered it yet. But its at a good point. You can really see the details but I added 2 front pockets and one back pockets too. This is a first for me. Never sewn a pant before.

Knit Toddler Pants
Knit Toddler Pants - Front pockets(I hope you can see it ;) )

Knit Toddler Pants - Back pockets(I hope you can see it ;) )
I am planning to sew a pant with cotton fabric soon. I think I got the hang of it ;).

Last but not least is the cute baby blanket I made for a Customer at my Etsy shop. This is one of my favorite collection from Riley Blake Designs - Hoo's in the Forest . I have been hoarding this fabric for quite sometime now.


My other summer/fall projects which were already published for Riley Blake Designs Cutting corners college:
Splendor Garden quilt Tutorial
Evergreen Quilted Pillow Sham Tutorial
 Thank you for stopping by and checking out my projects.
Here is the rest of the schedule for today. Go say hi to the other hoppers today :) .
Happy Quilting!

  25. Hi Malini! That skirt is so darned cute! I have not been very successful with gathered tiered skirts. I thought I was so talented and didn't use a pattern. The skirt wasn't full enough and didn't fit my little friend. Yours looks so nice and full! One the baby quilt, how do you like working with that minky? I heard it was a little tricky. That quilt was soo sweet!
