I love getting photos of Quilts and projects YOU made using my patterns and my fabrics. Sandi made my quilt design called "Baby Baskets" ( on my free pattern page) CLICK HERE To read Sandi's story about the quilt.
Donna took my "Wild and Free" workshop in Colorado... Here is what she shared...
"I am not very wild so
it was a stretch for me to make a crazy background. I decided to use
yellow, blue, and green for grass, sky, and sun with red and white added
for flowers. Here is my final project. I reduced the background by 25%
so I could use my Go!Cutter dies for the flowers, stems, and critters
and I call it my Wild Go Garden.
Thank you so much for all you shared at our guild meeting. The
presentation was informative and fun and I am now a podcast subscriber.
Although I am not the wild type I will not likely use a solid
background for my future applique projects. One day this will actually
Here are all my blocks set side by side like Jackie did.
WHAT HAPPENED??? I was using a layer cake and a few bits of yardage. My fabric Is BUSY BUSY BUSY... so when I set it side by side it mushes and blends.
But I can correct that!
MUCH better!! I love playing with BUSY fabric. I love to see what happens when I mix up busy prints.
There are blocks I would do over if I was planning things 'again'. But I'm not planning a second version and I'm not changing anything. I love the chaos and this will hang in my studio when done. I'm making quilts with lots of red to put in here so that I have mostly red and white... swoon!
Have you kept up? I can't wait to see what Setting Jackie has in store for us!
The AMAZING Team at Sew4Home has taken my "Eat Your Fruits and Veggies" fabric and made up these cute placemats and napkins. SO EASY! I am a HUGE fan of making placemats and napkins to change up my dining room. Add in a table runner and the whole look changes.
Sew4Home has free patterns for the placemats that will fit a round table.
Beep Beep... back up the truck... a ROUND TABLE?
Did you KNOW I HAVE a round dining room table? I don't remember them asking me so I don't think they knew! Crazy how PERFECT this project is for me... those girls just "GET ME"... smooches to them!
I'm still working on photos ... but most are of the beach... because that is where I spent a lot of time.. wink!
If you'd love to keep up with me in more depth... I chat a lot at my Quilt Group "Quilt Mashup". There I share daily on all kinds of topics... and usually check in a few times a day to see what's new. Right now there is a fantastic amount of quilt "Show and Tell" by the group.
