Yesterday I took my kids out to their grandma’s farm to see some new baby chicks that just hatched. It was the first time that Cadie wore this little dress I made her from the 01/2014 issue of Ottobre Design. The pattern only has long or 3/4 sleeves so I substituted a cap sleeve I already had traced from Ottobre issue 04/2013.
The fabric on the bottom is woven… Monaluna’s Evening in the Meadow Collection. It’s so silky and tightly woven. For the top part of the dress I used Geo Dot Knit from Monaluna’s Woodland Knits collection. Monaluna fabric is so perfect for this project because they have soft organic knits and wovens that work so well together.
Perfect for holding baby chicks, don’t you think?
And this little dress is the sum of my spring break sewing. All of my little chicks have kept this momma chicken way too busy. 🙂

At my daughter Chloe’s high school (can you believe my baby started high school???), the lunch lines are so long that she has been skipping lunch! She’s always starving by the time she gets home because she doesn’t want to carry a big lunch bag as well as her heavy backpack – poor girl!
I am so in love with the beautiful look of simple patchwork quilts with lots of squares. This is the perfect way to use up fabric scraps like I did, or you can make a beautifully coordinated quilt with pre-cut 2 1/2’’ square fabric pieces that come in mini-charm packs.
I’m also in love with the process. If you feel like quilt making is your escape from the world and sitting down to sew for a few hours makes your troubles fade away… this is the quilt for you!
