So, the camping adventure is over
too bad....so sad!
Breakfast tastes so good when cooked and enjoyed outside while watching other folks wake up and go about their day
While I was away, the sky broke loose in my etsy shop and I have been frantically filling orders since I came back! (I'm not complaining!...gotta pay the bills, right?)
Anyway, in the midst of making things for other people I managed to finish a couple of "fun" things and want to link up to amylouwho's Sew-n-Tell Friday. A few weeks ago I made a bunch of these quilt blocks from my Heather Bailey collection and was able to stretch them out to use in a couple of projects.
First I made a quillow (you know, one of those things that is both a pillow and a quilt all wrapped up in one)
and then I squeezed a baby quilt out of the rest of the blocks.
I could just shoot myself for not seeing this earlier - two almost identical blocks side by side
Funny how I didn't see it while I quilting it or anything....I think I was concentrating so much on placing the blocks so the border fabrics wouldn't clash too much.
But, no big deal, right? I enjoyed trying out a new free motion quilting technique in a flower design
That was a new one for me and I like the way it turned out. I enjoy making baby quilts - they're fairly quick to put together and always look so pretty!
So, now that I've 'played around' for a bit, it's back to business!
