To Haiti With Love ~

Yesterday this little pixie came to visit, isn't she sweet ~ so gentle, curious and happy

We checked in on the vegetable garden ~ she loved the pebbles, dirt & bugs, not a fan of cilantro or onion stalks though

What perfect timing to have a real baby to model one of the baby quilts I made for Quilt Haiti

I think she liked it

I'm hoping it will make the little ones who get these quilts smile just like this

They were just simple 5" squares; using 5 different patterned fat quarters (look at me talking like I know quilting lingo - lol!) Some muslin that I stamped with foam alphabet stamps & fabric ink (they were bigger & cheaper than regular stamps - I found them in the stencil/paint section at Michael's.) It's not really a "quilt" because there is no batting on the inside or topstitching, just cozy cotton chenille on the back

Sending kisses & love to Haiti from Pixie Girl, Clementine & me!

If you'd like to make a quilt to send contact Tammy at
