ALYOF February 2015

ALYOF February Finishes

My goal for February was to piece a quilt, which I did. But instead of being the top it became the back. I have really had a hard time writing this post. Usually I am writing about a quilt I have done and showing you everything but today I can't!
I did have a lot of fun making it.

Freespirit has really created a quality fabric! Bright beautiful colors. I love the feel of the Modern Solids. The perfect thickness. Probably not the right word for it but they are. When you make something out of them you know it will last and last. I know you can understand that! Will I use them again! YES, I love them!

(100) 5" squares of 75 colors
is a dream come true for this lover of color
Denyse Schmidt's DS Modern Solids Charm Pack

This quilt ended up as a backing for another quilt and
is very simplistic but meaningful to me!
I also sewed the front but I can't share it.
One day maybe but not today!

Almost as soon as it was done
it was whisked away to a quilt…

Le Challenge

I started thisNoodlehead Super Toteat Thanksgiving and then a whole lot of things happened so it wasn't until the end of January that I got to get it finished. I was going desperately through my pictures looking for anything I might have made that had dots! It hit me the Super Tote had Cotton+Steel Basic fabric with dots on the inside!

Then I had to figure out when I finished it to make sure the time frame was right! I am so glad it is! I am joining in theLe Challenge #19 - Dotsthis month! Yippee! I love the monthly challenge!

I follow your blog! :)
Think Ruffles Blog Hop Welcome to "In The Boon Docks" and Day 1 of the "Think Ruffles Blog Hop"! My name is Lisa and I am so happy you are here today to see my quilt with ruffles! I have to thank Madam Samm @Sew We Quiltand Amy (Head Cheerleader)@ Sew Incredibly Crazy for arranging this great hop!
What is a ruffle? There are lots of different kinds and Madam Samm left it open to interpretation. She showed us how to make some and at the time I was thinking; ruffled bloomers, ruffled dresses, ruffled pillows. Then I saw a quilt in a magazine with what looked like ruffles! I kind of browsed through the issue of Quilt-it today, March/April 2014 issue and left it in my rocking chair and went to work. The second time I read the "Garden Path" pattern by Ann Baxter, (I had already made the quilt), it read "ruching", you don't know the horr…
