1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Herd of Rabbits for door decorating on: March 20, 2016 04:30:51 PM
I have been attempting to destash and had a massive amount of burlap, some foam boards and lots of buttons, glue sticks and ribbon.  I did run out of wire which is sewn inside the ears to make bendable so I had to buy more.  I managed to make a dozen of these which are pretty large and then I cut the rest of the foam board for smaller ones.  I figure these can be used as plant stakes, package ties etc.  Since it is so close to Easter I will probably hang on to the smaller ones until next year and maybe make some wreaths using them as well.

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Woodland Creature Quilt on: February 14, 2016 08:42:54 PM
I made this quilt for my partner in the woodland creature swap.  I was able to use all stash and it was a fun quilt to make.  Each square is cut and sewn to the batting.  I used warm and natural.  Win Win since I had saved all my scraps of warms and natural from cutting out other quilts.  The blocks are quilted with random designs.  Next I traced all of the pieces onto my fusible web and cut them slightly larger.  After ironing them onto my fabric it was easy to cut the pieces out with minimal fabric waste.  I used a straight stitch to sew them on.  Next came the layout and sewing the top together.  I used a piece of fleece for the backing and after getting it all pinned sewed around each block to quilt the top to the backing.  I will use this method and pattern again it was so fun to make.

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Birthday Stocking on: January 24, 2016 07:30:04 AM
Recently in the Christmas Stocking swap my partner wanted me to craft a birthday stocking.....this was a fun task.  I wanted to make it personal but also flexible to start a family tradition.  Digging through my stash I found some alphabet buttons, next on to my magazines where I remembered a pattern for a birthday banner.  Oh what the heck make the banner too for a table display.  The flag banner holds the individual name letter buttons.  I used safety pins and sent extra letters so the name can be changed out.  In my photo the name is spelled wrong but a quick switch fixed that problem.


The banner fits on a metal table frame for display.....I did not put the frame together but sent it along.  Hoping to be partnered with her again  or do some more personal swaps, so I can make some seasonal banners to send to fit the frame.

This was a fun challenge and I was super happy with the results!
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Chicken quilt on: December 23, 2015 08:27:58 PM
Recently I was in the quilt block swap round 8.  I decided that I wanted to make a wall quilt for my mom who has a chicken theme.  Recently she had given me all of her fabric as do to her eye sight and arthritis no longer sews.  One piece was chicken wire fabric, about 5 yards.  She made the comment how much she liked the fabric and I knew that a chicken themed quilt would be perfect.  So with the help of my fantastic partners the plan was set in place.  After the blocks were received I added button eyes and contrasting hearts as wings to show my love.  The chicken wire fabric formed the border and I used a red and white polka dot for the binding and back.  I also managed to make a table runner to match.  With the help of my swap block partners I made the perfect Christmas present full of love.  I also made a draft of the quilt adding in which blocks my partners made and where they were sent from.  I know she is going to love this.

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Texas size pillow on: May 25, 2015 07:54:26 PM
My partner in the scrappy swap's favorite color was purple.  So when I dug through my scraps I found the perfect pieces of fabric to make this scrappy pillow.  It ended up needing a 24 in pillow form.  I also used some stash yo-yos and buttons for added decorations and to make it a bit more scrappy! The back has a Velcro closure the length of the pillow so that it can be removed and washed! 

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Sunshine wall quilt on: May 25, 2015 07:47:41 PM
I made this fun and bright summer wall quilt for my swap partner in the Scrappy swap.
I managed to use some stash buttons and fabric that I already had.  The center was a fabric panel that I just stitched everything in a straight stitch to outline it which also made the quilting stitches.  So bright and fun!

Hoping to brighten up a dark space!
