April NewFO Challenge
This wonderful monthly challenge is the brain-child of Barbara @ Cat Patches. I love to start something new and really don't need someone's nudge to do so, but it is a good reminder to us quilters - keep it fresh and keep it fun.
I had a lot of NEW projects thru the month, but my designated NewFO was my project for the Monthly Doll Quilt Swap Group. This month's theme was 'Diamonds are Forever'. I challenge myself with working with different textured fabrics - silk and linen - with cotton.
And of course I send my signature little dolly to match - I have a tutorial for her HERE if you would like to make your own. And since I love to cross stitch, too - my labels are stitched on Aida cloth and fused to the back - always tiny buttons are involved with these two.
Thank you Barbara for the inspiration and be sure to check out everyone's NewFO for April HERE.
