Completely beautiful! Where did you get those fabrics for $6? Do you have a picture of the entire quilt on a flat surface?

I got the squares a while back from my favorite online place for bargains:
I haven't seen them again since!
And I just happen to have a (not so great) pic of my quilt hanging on the fence, it definitely looks better draped:

23  My labor of love, my trial and (mostly) error... in Quilting: Completed Projects by ilovepaper on: July 11, 2006 07:45:12 AM

...my lovely first finished quilt! It is 60x60 made from 144 5" squares of completely unmatching gorgeous fabrics that I got for around $6.00. I learned rather quickly that points are hard, hence the funky little pattern in the middle. It's mostly hand quilted although the outer 10" are done with my free-motion attachment. (what a disaster!)
I love it

I got this Japanese chihuahua pattern from a Flickr friend:

I'm pretty sure that she is blind; the beads I used for eyes give her a sightless look.  But she's cute anyway!

25  Vintage bee pattern book cover in Needlework: Completed Projects by ilovepaper on: June 10, 2006 02:02:42 PM
Every year I make scrapbooks (from the class) for my kid's teachers and this year one of the teachers colllects bee things (Miss B...get it?). I was so happy to be able to use my favorite transfer. I stitched on wool felt, found a bee fabric in my stash and cute ribbon and here's the cover:

close up of the bee and my 5th graders writing that I stitched over:

I love stitching on wool felt, something about the thickness and how the stitches sink into it a bit, love it!

Oh Shuffar- I'm sure that's not the case!

Look at what the lovely cybilverbeana made for me:

The big one is a gorgeous-furry-beaded-handstitched cake! It's a crummy day out and I can't get a nice shot of it... trust me it's even nicer than the picture.
The smaller one is a tiny metal tray with a red brocade cushion nestled in it. It's trimmed with red chenille rick-rack that I sent in her package  Wink and it has a magnet for resting a needle on....I can definitely use this!
Aren't they great?!
Thanks a bunch Cybilverbeana!

More from Yirq's cherry fabric. I just bought Amy Butler's apron pattern and it has these great potholders. My kitchen has a green check/dots and cherry thing going on.

My bias tape is very rough...I'll need to follow the directions exactly next time  Undecided

This is my first try at amigurumi (well, it looks like amigurumi I think). My daughter named him Howell. It was very easy to make. I found the free pattern here:
