Simply Color Table Runner

I finally finished my first table runner out of Simply Color, from V & Company.  I am making a pair of table runners to top my dresser and chest of drawers in my bedroom.

I cut out 3.5 inch squares to make 9 patches and reverse star blocks in white.  I made it as random as I could. I cut out all the 3.5 inch squares, put them in a bag, and shook them up.  All I did was make sure that two of the same fabrics weren't touching.  It was really easy and I love the results.

For the back I used the navy leaf print.

And here is the table runner in it's place on top of my dresser.

Blogger's Quilt Festival-Flower Garden

My second entry into the Blogger's Quilt Festival is Flower Garden, a wall hanging made with Tula Pink's The Birds and The Bees. I fussy cut many of the large hexagons.

The backing was pieced using some of the remains of the fat quarters.

Blogger's Quilt Festival-Tradewinds Quilt

The Tradewinds Quilt is my first entry into the blogger's quilt festival.


This is a throw sized quilt made using a layer cake and the blue yardage. It is the perfect snuggly quilt for my husband and I on the couch.  I was able to fussy cut many of the elephants and center them in the 8 pointed stars.  I quilted this on my home machine with wavy lines on the diagonal. I am still working on a pattern to publish via Craftsy in the next few months or so.

I am entering it into the throw sized quilt category.

Low Budget Review

Last night I took Claire to see Disney on Ice: Worlds of Fantasy at the CedarPark  Center. 

Of course I had to whip up a fast little dress for Claire to wear. I purchased some smocked Ariel fabric and sewed a straight line to make it a tube dress. I added a few ribbons for the straps and I was done. 

Now to the show, it was amazing. Just look at her face.

We saw all the favorites; Cars, The Little Mermaid, Tinkerbell, and Toy Story. And don't forget Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck, and Goofy. The music was great and so was the skating. 

I even let Claire get a souvenir cup, a creepy Jesse. 

We had a great mother-daughter date and if you have the chance, take your kids. They will love it.

Charming Patchwork Lunch Bag

I needed a new lunch bag so I went through my blog list and settled on Clover & Violet's Charming Patchwork Lunch Bag.  It is a free tutorial and was easy to follow.  I am in love with the results.

For the inside, I used two different fabrics.  I am really impressed with the iron-on vinyl from Pellon.  I substituted it because I could not find Lamifix at my local Joann Fabrics.  

You can also download the tutorial on the Pellon website.
