I must admit to be slack when it comes to the quilting stage. I get the top done and then I stop. I don't have a big long arm machine and find it so hard to quilt on my domestic machine. I know people do it....but I only seem to be able to stitch in the ditch. Anyway...I just came across this tutorial explaining how to join your quilted blocks together which made it seem so easy. Take a look at what Leah Day has to say about joining them.

What a clever idea Refashion has come up with to whip up an easy dress for a little girl. She has used a pillowcase to make this lovely little dress. Of course you could just use fabric too but there are so many cute pillowcases that are fairly cheap to buy that it would make a nice cheap dress too.
