As much as I'd love to show you a bunch of completed projects day after day, this train has to slow down! I'm moving in two weeks. Yikes! So the blog may be a bit quiet here soon, but I'll still be checking in regularly on Flickr! I'm going on a little girls-only vacation next weekend with a few quilting friends--you may have heard of them: Kaelin, Ali, Cherie, and Cara! We're camping out in my empty house in Tennessee. We're going to christen it with lots of new fabric after we explore the local stores--did you know Leah from Burgundy Buttons lives there? Oh yeah! I made this bag for my trip! I was actually pattern testing for Michelle . Check out the bags you'll be able to make with this pattern:
Hello! Fabulous! The pattern will be available for sale really soon. Don't worry, I'll keep you posted!
I made this one too because it went so quickly!
I finally cut into my Recess layer cake and made this quilt top! No more precious Recess! The pattern is from Cluck Cluck Sew called Easy Bake. I forgot there were only 40 pieces in that layer cake so instead of a 6x7 layout I had planned, I had to go with 6x6. Yes, I could have done 5x8, but I don't like narrow quilts. I'm not narrow so why would I make a narrow quilt? :) I had thought about keeping this one, but my oldest kid told me it looked "crazy nuts" so I guess it will go in the shop when it's done. I can make a matching pillow with my 4 left over blocks too! I was thinking of making a custom appliquéd pillow for whoever bought the quilt. The blocks that are left are the light colored ones so a bright red or navy monogram would look super cute. Ok, just thinking out loud there.
I hope you all are making progress on your precious QAL items! Check out Darci's pillow
And Michelle's blocks:
and I know we're all drooling over Amy's quilt!
