As much as I'd love to show you a bunch of completed projects day after day, this train has to slow down! I'm moving in two weeks. Yikes! So the blog may be a bit quiet here soon, but I'll still be checking in regularly on Flickr! I'm going on a little girls-only vacation next weekend with a few quilting friends--you may have heard of them: Kaelin, Ali, Cherie, and Cara! We're camping out in my empty house in Tennessee. We're going to christen it with lots of new fabric after we explore the local stores--did you know Leah from Burgundy Buttons lives there? Oh yeah! I made this bag for my trip! I was actually pattern testing for Michelle . Check out the bags you'll be able to make with this pattern:
Hello! Fabulous! The pattern will be available for sale really soon. Don't worry, I'll keep you posted!
I made this one too because it went so quickly!
I finally cut into my Recess layer cake and made this quilt top! No more precious Recess! The pattern is from Cluck Cluck Sew called Easy Bake. I forgot there were only 40 pieces in that layer cake so instead of a 6x7 layout I had planned, I had to go with 6x6. Yes, I could have done 5x8, but I don't like narrow quilts. I'm not narrow so why would I make a narrow quilt? :) I had thought about keeping this one, but my oldest kid told me it looked "crazy nuts" so I guess it will go in the shop when it's done. I can make a matching pillow with my 4 left over blocks too! I was thinking of making a custom appliquéd pillow for whoever bought the quilt. The blocks that are left are the light colored ones so a bright red or navy monogram would look super cute. Ok, just thinking out loud there.
I hope you all are making progress on your precious QAL items! Check out Darci's pillow
And Michelle's blocks:
and I know we're all drooling over Amy's quilt!
Those bags are beyond fabulous!! I'll have to keep my eye out for that pattern!
I want that first bag SO much that I might actually be forced to buy the same fabric and copyKat.
Have a FAB girlcation!!
Your bags are awesome!
(Does that sound wrong?!) x
Train slowing down? Surely not, the husband and kids are there to pack, right? ;o) Have fun on your girls weekend!
Your quilt looks awesome! And I think it must be a boy thing. My roommate thinks all American Jane looks crazy nuts. I must have several quilts I've made from the FQB I had. Enjoy it and snuggle with it!!
I love that you say you're slowing down and then show two bags and a quilt top you've made. :)
Good luck with the move!
Can't wait to hear what you thought about Stitcher's Garden. :-)
THAT will be a fun weekend - try not to get TOO crazy in the new house! Saw Ali's bag on Thursday and now after seeing yours I am even MORE ready for Michelle to release that pattern!!
Thanks for doing those Kelly! They look amazing!!
I'm sooo upset I can be there next weekend :-(. I hope y'all have fun!!
You are on the fast track Kelly ;)
