I swear that these mini quilts are like eating POTATO CHIPS!! You CAN'T make just ONE!! Here's another one I just finished...It's called "Puzzling the Old Maid" and it's a Lori Smith pattern. One of the 2 BFFs made the same quilt in a different colorway...now if Michelle would just blog about HER quilt, we could see hers too! LOL
Oh QUICKLY go and enter this giveway at Pickles and Bacon! It ends at midnight tonight CST! She's giving away a beautiful Jelly Roll and Charm pack to some lucky quilter!! So go quickly..you have about 5 hrs from when I posted this!
Here are a couple of book covers that I made for my 2 BFFs, Peg and Michelle! The pattern is from Moda Bake shop and was alot of fun to do! It let me use some fancy stitches on my machine...now to make one for myself!
Here is my little Valentine finish! It's a mini quilt from a Lori Smith pattern titled "Reproduction Fabrics 2". These little quilts are part of a series offered by Temecula Quilt Company and they do a great job with the kits! I'm a little behind with these kits and currently have 5 to put together, so I'd better get busy with the sewing and quilting! LOL
Tell me...Do you like minis? Or prefer larger projects?
Bill is a big space and planet buff, so what better of a giftie than a little space and planet pillow! I had completed the cross-stitch many moons ago (no pun intended LOL) and finally finished it into a pillow complete with piping and a ruffle! I'm happy with how it came out and I'll give it to him for Valentines day. So now I can actually say I've given him the Sun, the Moon and stars LOL.
I'm participating in the Backporch Friends 2010 UFO Challenge and here is my first finished challenge project! 1 down, 14 more to go by the end of June! LOL It's a runner from the 2007 Thimbleberries club and I really like how it came out! There's alot of quilted motifs in it, but they're kind of lost in the busy green fabric! I just LOVE Thimbleberries ;)
I think I have a kit fetish! LOL I just love kits! I love to pull my own fabs and design my own ideas too, but there's just something about having a whole "something" at your fingertips that I find irresistible! There were a few new kits in my mailbox this week so I figured I would let you see my goodies ;)
These are 2 of 3 Spring-themed kits that Farmhouse Woolens is offering as a Seasonal-themed project of the month! Karen Perry puts together such great kits, she is such a pleasure to do business with! The 3rd Spring kit is a stitchery and I'll recieve it something next month.
These 2 wonderful kits are from Sue Spargo! The one on the left is for a tote/purse and the one on the right is a large zip bag.
All of these kits have some wool components to them as well..I just love wool!! So I'll have to add these to my "to do" list!
Are YOU working on anything for Spring yet? It's right around the corner you know!!
