Baby Quilt Show/Garage Sale Find!

Today the weather was beautiful as I walked over to a local Cultural Center to checkout the Baby Quilt Show/Fundraiser being held for our local children's relief nursery.   

Most the quilts were simple, many created from charm pack and panel patterns.
 I found myself inspired by the simplicity of them all.
I couldn't resist picking this one as my very favorite:

Annnddd it's always nice to see your own donation among the bunch:

I also found this thrifty find at a garage sale right across the street: A larger dresser to replace a smaller one to aid in my studio remodel. (My neighbor and I  simply ended up swapping dressers as she wanted a smaller one! SCORE!)
I can't wait to start filling the drawers!
With smiles,
Val:)

  9. That looks like a great show for getting Project Linus ideas! And ooh more drawers are always a good thing. I keep thinking about redoing my quilting room closet with built ins and plenty of drawers.

  10. What a fun fund raiser! Love the new dresser. Looks real sturdy - enough for fabric. Will filling the drawers entail some retail therapy? I hope so.

  11. Nice display. I quite like the square one next to yours (and yours, too, of course). What a good trade. You didn't pay a cent and you didn't have to find a way of getting rid of the one you no longer wanted :)
