Here is something else that I am experimenting with! Have you ever visited the website Spoonflower.com? Amy at AmyScrapSpot told me about it. She was all excited to start designing her own fabrics and ordered a bunch of swatches (pretty cheap to do that too!) with her designs. You can design your own fabrics and offer them for sale if you desire. I wish her great success with that but that's not for me. I did think it would be fun to make a bag with my blog logo on it though. So I ordered a swatch to see how it would come out. Here it is:
The colors look great! The fabric is kind of thin though so I might try it on a different kind of fabric. What a great conversation starter that would be!
Quilting opens up all kinds conversations so easily doesn't it? Friday, I was sewing like mad to get my mini quilts done in time for the blog hop so I took them with me to work on at while I was at my daughter's track meet. Another track mom asked me what I was making and we spent the rest of the meet talking about quilting and all kinds of stuff. Hi Donetta!! It was nice to meet you!
A little while ago I bought a few fabrics just to try and make my stash a bit more modern and my daughter fell in love with those fabrics so I'm working on a quilt for her. Here are the fabrics I got:
Here is the pattern I will be using to make this quilt:
And here is the progress I have made so far.
I hope I can figure out where I left off on the pattern! Yikes!
Here's an interesting blast from the past. Long ago when my oldest son was 6, Pokemon was all the rage so I bought some Pokemon fabric. I never did make anything with it. Now it's probably collectable! this piece is from 1998. I'll probably hang onto it just in case any grandsons come along. I can't believe it, but Pokemon is still around!
I attended a concert of the Boise Philharmonic with my daughter and a few other ladies from work last night. Those musicians are incredible! And yes, you guessed it, I was sewing on binding during intermission. I think I have a problem. Sort of. But not really. :D
Kate, my dear accountability partner, here is my list of projects that I need to be working on this month. Keep me on track!
1. Three Bee blocks to make for March
2. I got mom's patchwork quilt sandwich basted and now I need to quilt it.
3. Finish Meadowmist Mystery Quilt. Here are the fabrics I picked and a few shots of blocks made along the way. I still have to do the last months' clues and then sew all the blocks together.
So I've got my work cut out for me this month!
