Mmmm.... Patchwork ;)

Well, I admit it. I'm still not caught up on my quilt. I know, I know. But did you see my last post?? How could I not use these amazing scraps, right? I had to make something, and I also had to practice free motion quilting before I put it all together, right? Right? lol Never mind that the quilt top pieces are not together yet! I had to practice...


This one is FUNKY! I like it and it bothers me at the same time, lol. My loving sister would freak out at this one, since it doesn't 'match'... but somehow that is what makes it work for me.


Mmm... Yummy Sandi Henderson goodness...


Pink Happiness...



And then some Amy Butler Bliss...



I had one similar to this at the market last week and it sold... while another person mourned that she didn't grab it first, lol. I figured I had better make another. ;)

For those of you participating in the Giveaway over at Joy's Hope... I will have these on Etsy in a few days, and you could win it! (Or anything else in the shop... since I am giving away a $25 gift credit!!) It is raining here today... so these were the best pics I could get... but as soon as those clouds go, these will all hit my Etsy Shop!

Ahhhhh! I just posted on Joy's Hope blog that my favorite thing in your shop was the patchwork tote. Then I come here and there's MORRRRE! CUTENESS! Oh and the funky "non-matching" one? Totally my favorite! It's adorable!

I can't decide which of the last two I like better...tough call. These look great though...you might end up free motion quilting two quilts. ;)

these are brilliant!
how did the free motion thing go for ya'? I don't have free motion on my machine so I think I might just do a plaid or simple stripe design--I don't want to be boring and just stitch in the ditch :)

Found you from Joy's Hope! I loveee your bags, I really love the Sandi Henderson bag. Makes them all even better because you use ribbon for the straps!

Tiffany said...

super cute stuff! You've inspired me to actually get some stuff into my etsy store. I have jewelry and bags piling up around me these days and just haven't had the time to deal with etsy. I'm looking forward to doing my first craft shows this year at christmas time. Maybe fit in a market or 2 in there too just to get my feet wet. Thanks for sharing all your cute stuff!

Stopping in from Joy's Hope and wanted to return the comment. Thanks for commenting...I don't think I've ever had someone doing a giveaway comment to me before. I thought it very sweet and thoughtful. I stopped by earlier to cruise around and got distracted before I could leave a comment here. Those totes are amazing. The patchwork almost looks like the fabric came that way, with the way they blend and mix so nicely. Great Job! Have a great weekend!

Gorgeous totes... what talent! The Amy Butler is a b-e-a-u-t-y! I've got to learn to sew one of these days-- you seamstresses (sp?-- it's a bit late!:) are so inspiring!

Thank you for visiting my site and complimenting my daughter's tutu I made. If I were a great sew-er like yourself and had your awesome fabric....I would love to make her some pillowcase dressies :)
LOVE the quilting!
