Casual Cotton Coco Dress

Over the weekend I made a couple of Coco dresses by Tilly and the Buttons. I had previously made a glam version of this dress that I was really happy with and have worn a couple of times already with many compliments. I wanted a more casual version for summer (ooh, look my toes are…

Bright Squares Quilt

This was a fast and fun quilt. Basically it consisted of taking a layer cake of Kona cotton solids (the classics in this case), randomizing them by throwing them in a big pile and then laying them out in a 6×7 grid. Yes, that simple. I wanted something to practice my longarm that would still…
