Quick! Quilt Me!!!




Two projects waiting for that next BIG step...hmmm, how to quilt it, HOW, to quilt it and howtogetitquilted???! Pink and Orange Baby: fun circles, found the tutorial over at LizzyHouse. The circles are a little "involved", but really, the top came together quick. Lizzy's (that's not her real name) quilt "Marble Champ" is produced from her own fabrics. I just made mine a lot smaller.
The Christmas Tree skirt is from Jacquie of tallgrassprairiestudio. The tutorial is at Sew Mama Sew. Actually, I plan to quilt it "just like Jacquie"! I even went out to the paint store and purchased the 2 inch blue painters tape. It doesn't look like a Christmas Tree Skirt yet, but hopefully it will real soon! tallgrass Jacquie is a great quilting/blogging friend. Thanks so much, Jacquie.
Take Care~~

What?! Didn't know you were making a tree skirt! And it is square like mine. But does that mean you guys are going to have 2 trees this year? Because you have two tree skirts. Also, where are the pictures of the quilt that you did quilt?

I get so many ideas from Jacquie. She's so original. I'm excited to see your projects quilted. I love the circles and the fabric. It is soft yet makes a great impact. You've been busy girl!

The circles is fabuloso in real life. And maybe there will soon be someone to give it to? Thank goodness you bought a ping pong table...

What wonderful projects! I love the quilts and the beautiful fabrics you used!

Thanks so much for all the kind comments you've left recently, esp regarding my friend, Sarah. I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend with your family.

Hi Di! Thanks for stopping by my blog! About the tote bag pattern you asked about: The pattern is from here: http://cicadadaydream.blogspot.com/2009/02/fat-quarter-tote-bag-tutorial.html I modified it slightly by changing the dimensions (made it a little less "fat"). I also used a heavier weight fabric for the bottom panel that doesn't match the inside lining (in the tutorial it says to use the same fabric for the lining and bottom panel). Hope this helps; please stop by my blog again!
