I loved making the girls Easter dresses, and would generally encourage them shopping in the cotton section so I could use the scraps in quilts later! I still have some of the scraps from those dresses and always smile when I find them. At some point, handmade dresses didn't have quite the attraction they once had and the easter outfits were store-bought instead. Sad, but little girls do grow up into young ladies and I remember myself being happier with dresses from the store as well.
I'm a little sad that I didn't even hang my Easter bunny quilt this year! )there are some dress scraps in this one for sure!) I've had the new Big Surf quilt hanging above the fireplace all year because I love it so much. But it's not very "Easter" looking, is it? I think I might have to think about finding a new place to hang my seasonal wall hangings.
