A New Fondness. . .

Monday, November 29, 2010

This is my latest "mini" quilt. I'm part of this round's Modern Swappers group, and this is the project I came up with. My partner has modeled her sewing room in orange, purple and gray. Initially, I was a bit hesitant; but, I definitely have a new fondness for this color combination. It reminds of sweet grape and orange popsicles on a warm summer day. With the exception of the gray, this was stitched up with strips leftover from several larger projects. I did a square spiral quilting to emphasis the strips. Wouldn't a full size quilt in this colorway be fun!

Hope you all had a lovely holiday!

It's Beginning To Look Alot Like. . .

Yes, the holidays are approaching and this year I'm really looking forward to them. I've dug into my FQ stash of favorite Christmas fabrics this year (12 Days of Christmas by Kate Spain) and finished a couple of little projects.

First, the little Friendship Bag~instead of 1 1/2" strips, I just fussy cut the front and back panels to accentuate the wee people ice skating.
Same with the Hexagon Needle Book I just can't get enough of this print. A whimsical Christmas~that's for me!
