Hopscotch


The Hopscotch Top from Oliver + S. Might possibly be my favorite pattern of theirs.
Well, next to the Swing Set top...The pants are the pj pants from the Bedtime Story pj pattern.

Fabric is City Weekend Interlock by Oliver + S.

I'm not bragging when I say I made two tops and one pair of pj pants in one day, I tell you this so you can know how easy this pattern is!! It looks like it might be difficult because it's knit fabric but it's not.
 After making these I went to the basement to see if I had anymore knit fabric. Sadly I don't :( I'm itching to make more! I am in the process of making more out of the contrasting dots but I'd like some different prints. I love this style so much. And I especially love Ava's color combo. Emily's combo is just ok to me. She loves it and she actually picked out which one she would have.
 How sweet is this fabric??? And Ava?? Ava doesn't get a full shot because she's wearing pj pans with panda's on them and they so don't match! Have I mentioned how much I love this pattern? Oliver + S patterns always have a great fit. Notice the shoulder seams on this top? Perfect. Usually with other patterns the seam would be way past their shoulders. And this knit is sooooooo soft!!!! Oh, both shirts are a size 5.

Below is the quilt for my sister. It's missing it's borders but the picture below this one shows what they will look like. The pattern is Flowers in The Garden from here.


One of the shams below. The fabric is Pure by Moda. Hopefully I'll be quilting it myself in January.

Today is Jon's birthday! He turns...38!

LOVE!! I have got to get that pattern Think MAC would look odd in a girls top? He's tiny, he won't know. Very, very cute.

The quilt is awesome.Your sis will love it! Mom wants me to do a quilt for her, same color scheme but she picked a turning twenty ... she's almost done picking out her fabric.

Happy Birthday Jon! I am 11 years and one day older than you. Yes, you can feel good about that.

What a beautiful quilt! I love the colors. And the pj's are precious! I love Ava's color way, too! Do they wear the same size shirt?? That will be Elizabeth and Keara soon. Elizabeth weighed more at 6 months than Keara did at a year! It's crazy how sisters can be so different size wise!
