The General Store

Just finished another block for my stars around town quilt.
It's mainly paper piecing.
There are 16 blocks to be made and I have 9 more to go.

Urban Couture...

This is what I have been working on lately. Just a basic strip quilt. When I first bought this fabric I loved it! Then I started cutting it and didn't like it anymore so i put it away for a while. I decided to bring it out the other day to work on and I do like it again! I'm just not sure what color of border to put around it. Should it be brown? Blue or Yellow?

Barbie Wardrobe

Thought I would make her an outfit or two. Making Barbie clothes is so hard!
But it's a lot of fun and if you mess up, there is not a ton of fabric being wasted.
I love making these gift bags! This one will hold my yummy zucchini bread!

cutest turkey ever..

I just love this little guy. I think the colors came out perfect! I love tea towels, they are so fun!

it's been a while...

My computer has been running like crap lately so I haven't even bothered, but it is up to speed now.
I love these hot pad pinchers. They are so handy and easy to make, I should demonstrate them. Then Ithought this was the perfect way to show off all my fabric that I got from the quilt show. My dvd's were all over the place too so I made a dvd case.

Work in Progress

I usually don't post my projects until they are done but I don't know when this will be done. It's going to be an irish chain quilt with stars. I'm making this out of all my scraps. Here are the scrappy nine patches...
This is a Rooster pattern, I just need to finish the boarder, its going to be a red checkerboard border. I'm not too fond of quilt hangings. I will probably frame this.

Bountiful Blessings

I love stitchery, I'm sure I have said that more than once, I also enjoy applique! I'm not sure what I want to do with this one? I think I will frame it. I just thought it was incredibly cute and just perfect for Thanksgiving.
And this is just a hot pad I made, it's actually called a Pot Pincher. They are really handy, this one I made for me. I have more in the making.
