Great giveaway Alert go to www.granmascharms.blogspot.com she is giving away 4 boxes of fabric.


I finally got this lovely done for Mr. David Platt. I really love Backyard Baby fabric it is so detailed. The hardest part for me to get completed when doing a quilt is the hand sewing on the binding. My mom picked out the orange Kona fabric, to make it pop. I am glad I followed her advice.


When you look up close, which is what little David will do, you will see the little woodpecker in the trees really comes out.
Gotta get it in the mail to St. Louis.
There are certain people you talk to when you have a blog or go to other blogs that you know if they lived down the road, you would be the best of friends. One of those people for me is Ali at Very Berry Handmade She is very thoughtful and sent me FROGS. I love this fabric, not only did she remeber that I love frogs, she gave me her winnings from a competition. Did I tell you she makes the most beautiful pincusions I have ever seen.

Backyard Baby, Kona Solids, and Show and Tell

I just love the Backyard Baby fabric line by designer Patty Sloniger. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it for David Platt's Quilt, born January 31, 2012 to our family. But when it arrived I did not want to cut it because I was AFRAID. Have you ever had that happen? I needed a pattern or something to make sure I didn't mess up. I looked at it for days planning. What to do and how to do it.

I had a visual of what I wanted, but not how I would lay it out. So this is what I did. Do you like it? I have to take it to my friend, Irene, to quilt it for me. Why? Because I don't know how YET.



I love it! Hope you do to. During the creative process, I found Kona Solid fabrics by Robert Kaufman, the fabrics are vibrant, have that designer feel and looks beautiful with any print. It is sold all over the internet and at Jo-Ann's. I am so happy, because surprise I am a coupon cutter, so Jo-ann's is one of my favorite places to shop with a 40% off coupon. Yipee!

So now…
