“What you create doesn’t have to be perfect. So what if the eggs are greasy or the toast is burned? Don’t let fear of failure discourage you.”

Here is one of the quilts from all the sultry blocks I made about a month ago. I also have a twin size ready to quilt and some more blocks to make into something else. I love the whirlygigs, they go together so fast and look so cute. The colors in this are so soft. I used a light pink thread for quilting a meandering daisy design. Then light green loops on the small border. The finished size is 40 x 50.

How Much Fabric? Card GUEST GIVEAWAY!!!!

How Much Fabric? Card GUEST GIVEAWAY!!!!

I need this, not that I mind purchasing extra fabric. But I am not as good at estimating for clothes as I am for quilts.

Tumbling Blocks

I love the colors in these fabrics. They are from the All-Star collection by Riley Blake. I was really excited when I got the opportunity to make a baby boy quilt from them. I love the honeycomb look you get when you put the same color blocks together. This quilt went together really fast. I quilted the middle with an echo of the honeycomb shape. Then I stitched swirly stars in the border.

The mom-to-be loved it! Which is always the most exciting part. The Young Women threw her a baby shower and we also gave her some coordinating burp cloths and soft toy block to go with the quilt. It is always hard to find boy fabric and I love this line a lot. There is something about orange that really draws me lately.

I met Heather Bailey!

A few weeks ago I scored a bunch of her fabric at the annual Quilt's Etc. sale. I had been amassing quite a collection of Pop Garden, and I easily doubled it. Then I heard she was going to be at Material Girls, a quilt shop up in Salt Lake, so I decided to go.

She was very nice and it was fun to meet a fabric designer. But I really wish Jessica or my mother could have come with me. I need a partner in crime!
