The coin quilt is finally finished! O.K. I still need to sew on the label but you can see it is pinned on and ready to sew. I'm going to do that tonight but I didn't think you wanted to wait another week to see the label on. You may not be able to tell from the photo but I used a multi pieced binding on this one. I saw this over on Cherly's blog Naptime Quilter.

I found a turtleneck and matching leggings for the jumper. If you are planning on making one of these you might want to get the t-shirt/turtleneck and leggings first before you buy your fabrics I didn't have much choice in the colors, luckly I found a light pink that matches pretty well.

I got a little side tracked. I've been looking for a dress for my Granddaughter for winter and wasn't happy with anything I was finding so I decided to make something myself. I used a Simplicity pattern 7872. I'm not sure if it is still available or not this was in my patterns and was close to what I was wanting. The pattern doesn't call for it to be reversable and I didn't find any patterns that were. I'm hear to tell you if you don't know how to make this reversable I'm still not sure if I can tell you how. I though just make two put them right side together leave a side seam open and turn. Wrong! You have to do a few more steps mine included a lot of reaping out of seams. I did sew the whole thing on the machine, no hand sewing here! Anyone that knows me knows hand sewing is not something I do. I'm really happy with how it turned out. I hope it fits if not I think I can make another one in a lot less time then the first one. I still need to get some buttons and make the button holes but that should be the easy part. I hope finding a pink or white turtle neck and some leggings will be just as easy too.
