Random pics of some things I've made and haven't shared



For a baby shower gift

another MQ top

Baby Bento box for niece
                                                   Second cat's meow quilt for my sister
                                                       
                      Made for a friend out of some really small scrappy blocks her grandmother had made.


Another scrappy quilt

This quilt was made for an over sized king bed. It measures 110" x 125" totally scrapp, even has some old kitchen curtain fabric in this one. The only pic I have of it after it was quilted is one of it folded up. But I do have a pic of the full top and one of the top folded in half. This quilt no longer resides with me. It was sent to someone who loves it dearly. It was hard for me to part with. I going to enter this into the 2014 Bloggers Quilt festival under the large quilt catagory. I plan to make another one of these soon.



My scrappy Cat's Meow

This was my first MQ and my first scalloped border.  I decided to go with all scrappy, since I didn't have the yardage to meet the fabric requirements.I'm entering this into Amy's 2014 Bloggers Quilt Festival. Go have a look at all the beautiful quilts and be inspired by the creativity of other quilters. This was one quilt I haven't yet been able to part with because all the time I put into making it. I love the way it turned out and am very proud of it. It won Viewers Choice on the FB group that hosted the MQ, it also won a blue ribbon at our county fair. It is presently on the bed in our guest room, with a red bed skirt which sets it off nicely.

I'm entering my scrappy quilt in

2014 Blogger's Quilt Festival

I wanted to enter this simple but modern quilt I made my daughter into Amy's Blooger Quilt featival. I haven't blogged in quite some time and then it was just here and there. I may just have a few new post because I have a couple new quilts I would like to enter. Go have a look at all the quilts and be inspired. And don't forget to vote for your favorites.
This quilt was made using fabric my daughter bought and brought to me and asked if I would make her a quilt from them. Only problem was, there wasn't near enough yarage to do it. So I used as much of the fabric she had brought me and finished the rest off with a big white background. Surprisingly it turned out beautifully. It may have not been quite as nice with out the white, so not enough was a good thing.

My new purse for Spring

I love everything about my new purse. I drew me up a pattern similar to one I had seen only I made it to suit my needs and I just love it. I've got plans to make a couple more. Hope to get to those soon. I've been pretty busy lately sewing for others so I try to squeeze in time to work on some of my projects. I just about have my other MQ top together. I've also been putting together blocks a friend of mine's great grandmother had pieced and was not able to finish they are simply amazing and Can't wait to share those beauties with you. Also, here's a link for my card holder key chain tutorial which would be great to make them match the purse.
