What a week!
Miss Mae had a birthday - (she's 9!) She picked out the fabric for her birthday dress - one I would have NEVER chosen.
Now, I'm glad I bought extra, I think it would make a great focal print for a quilt.
Her favorite part is the orange flower.
Am I really old enough to have a nine-year-old?
When did that happen?
If I stop feeding her, will she stop growing?
I get teary just thinking about it.
Time to change the subject.
Green and purple strings for Eileen.
Lovin' these colors!
I have 2 sets for Jen - I'm in 2 different bees with her.
First, we have a block that completely defeated me.
I admit it.
The fabric won.
I'm waving the white flag.
She wanted blocks based on this waverunner quilt.
I'm not thrilled with how they turned out, but I hope they're acceptable.
I felt like I was forcing the fabric into a shape it didn't want to be in.
I couldn't get them to lay flat for nothing.
I followed the directions and everything.
The second set for Jen was much more fun.
Pretty. Have I mentioned that purples are my favorite colors?
And, my work in progress.
My very first truly original design.
I designed it for the Solids Challenge, but wanted to test it before I started on the "real" one.
I am pleased to present
"Following the Leader"
I can't decide - does it need a border? or will a contrasting binding be enough?
Currently it's about 50" square....
This one's for niece Skylar.
She's Muffin's age and in love with pink.
Her mom, however, is growing tired of all the pink. I thought this was a nice compromise.
Pink without being overwhelmingly princess-y pink.
what do you think?
