Sew and Tell

I got quite a bit of sewing time in this week. First, I finally finished this quilt for my sister-in-law. It was her Christmas gift. From 2008.
To give you some perspective on the size, here is Mini-me standing in front of it:

I made a sewing cover, following this tutorial.
It's reversible.
Personally, I just like how the ties make it look like a bonnet.

Once again, I am linking up with amylouwho. Go check out the other great projects!

Love the quilt. Yes, mini-you is adorable. Funny, the ties say "apron" to me. I love aprons!!! Great finishes.
Blessings,

Great quilt for CG. And I love your sewing machine cozy. Maybe you could make a television cozy, too, because I'm going to be tired of looking at it after this weekend :)
