My sweetheart of a granddaughter, aged 12, has been here for the last couple of weeks. We have had all kinds of fun. Sewing, crafting, swimming, reading, learning and creating….. One of the things she wanted to do was to make a raincoat.
So, while on a recent road trip, we stopped into Hearts To Holly. A really cute quilt shop in Charlevoix, MI. Definitely worth the stop if you are in the area. Or even if you aren’t. Lots and lots of nice fabrics and some sweet ideas. They were recently chosen a Better Homes and Gardens 2011 Quilt Sampler featured shop. A big deal for a small town quilt shop. They very much deserve the honors!
We chose Amy Butler’s hooded raincoat pattern and an XS fit her *perfectly*! So exciting not to have to do major alterations on a previously purchased, for another person, pattern. Love the cost savings, too!
She chose Amy Butler‘s Temple Doors, in Grass. It is very much a bold lime color to be lined with Robert Kaufman‘s Primrose dots. Think hot pink!
Hopefully we can get more accurate color photos another day.
It is still very much a WIP but it is looking too cute! Bring on the showers!
Next week, hopefully this project is complete and there will be more to share on the four quilts in different stages of completion.
Have a great, productive week everyone!
