A few of my Favorite things ~ 2014

Image
My niece with her Elsa/Anna pillow I made for sleeping over at the Grandparents house! Grandparents each received new pillow cases to match...can there be too much Frozen in your life? :) and her brand new baby brother mmm...new baby snuggles! Mason jar pincushions from my moms stash of flour sack material. I made hexi flower tops and then divided up some of the buttons she had saved.  All the kids used to play with her button can which was an old canned ham container.  This was one of four I made so far. Signing up for an online Friendship Block Swap and asking a fellow blogger, Jen,  from my same city to join in.  We both had fun making our quilt tops and then we had fun meeting Luke Haynes together. :)

My first entry into the county fair since 4-H days. 
Tried my hand at value design of my own. Tried totally improv curvy leaf designs and lots of fmqing which you can't see well on here but that is probably for the best! ha and of course one of my most favorite things from this year  and…

Not idle... just slow

Finally getting around to posting my challenge piece. I struggled so much coming up with something I liked using these fabrics. I did get something done as you see, and I submitted it but alas it was not accepted.  I do think that I was a tiny bit disappointed but then again I have been really distracted from sewing because of a recent illness with my husband.

So, I am just now pulling up my knee socks and moving forward.
I call this "Spumoni Sunshine".  It is pretty small at 30" w x 28" l with spiral quilting.

I used the fat eights that were sent and a bit more of the yellow and white and then gray and black of the MM  solids.  If at first you don't succeed, try, try again...right?  So maybe next time. :)
