Happy Mother's Day to Me!

It is Mother's Day tomorrow but I got my pressie today! Ta Daaaaa! My new sewing machine trolley so I can carry my machine to my monthly Patchwork and Quilting Group in style. Of course I had to buy it myself and have it posted up here myself, I refused to wrap it though!

Today was our sewing day so I got to use it. I freaked at first cause I thought my machine didn't fit, but you have to take the cover off the machine to get it in the trolley! d'oh!

So I worked on today a quick dolls quilt top for a friend of Milly's who is having a 5th birthday party next week. I took these blocks left over from Milly's Log Cabin Quilt and trimmed them down to 5 inches. Just wanted it to be big enough to wrap around a doll or teddy.

Sashed them in white and here it is all done, ready to sandwich and then quilt. I am thinking simple straight white lines. Or maybe pink?

I love the quilt too. I would do it in white I think.
