Little Lizard King. It uses ruffle fabric and was SO easy. I decided to use some of the scraps to make a matching one for Ashlyn's doll. I didn't have a pattern for that one, so it isn't quite as nice. Ashlyn loves it, though.
pattern. I was very happy with the pattern and will probably make another one for me.

quilt. Second quilt that has used a large amount of the fabric.

Originally, I had planned to make a whole cloth quilt, but then decided that I would just make it very simple. I like the simple quilt design. I then used photos of my grandparents, their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren for the quilting design. These all became the main parts of the tree. I defined the tree around the faces, then used straightish lines in the background to distinguish it from the tree.
I think it turned out nicely, but there are many things that I would change if I were to do this again. First, I would start with a completely different top, not sure what type of piecing goes with a tree quilt. I also would use different thread. I wanted the quilting to show, but not too much. After I was finished, I decided that the quilting was the big deal here, so I should have used thread that created more of a contrast. I also used variegated thread and it looks kind of weird on some of the faces.
