The Covert Robin

I have signed up for:
I am working on a pouch for my partner in theModern Scrappy Bits Swap. I am using Perle Cotton to outline the boxes on both the front and the back of the pouch. Having never done this before it is a mystery how it will turn out but I do like the colors. Pairing Robert Kaufman, Kona Solid "Coal" and a mini charm of V and Co., "Simply Color" makes for a bright and happy pouch.. Here "In The Boon Docks", it is very cold and windy! A good day to stay inside and sew! Thank you for stopping by and please consider signing up at Rachael's Imagine Gnats forThe Covert Robin. The link will take you right to her door to find out more. Enjoy your day! Lisa

Do your children know the "Pledge of Allegence"? Teach them to respect the America flag, if you live in the USA.

I am having problems linking with the Linky tool so I am trying to submit my photos.

The post before this one was my original entry and it describes my lessons learned. With no further waiting here are the photos of my iPad bag. It is bright and I love it made with lots of HST's.




The fabric I used is Fresh, Deb Strain, by Moda & Kona Solids

I am hoping now to link up with the Festival of Half Square Triangles at Canoe Ridge Creations




I hope you enjoy the festival and all the entries. Lots of beautiful things where created.

The Festival of Half Square Triangles is on to voting for the top ten. Which has some beautiful quilts to vote on. I am so pleased with myself because I got my entry done and posted. But I wanted to share what I got done with all of you!

The Festival of Half Squared Triangles Entry is finally done. I appreciate all the followers who gave their input to help me get the creative juices flowing. The comment made by a few was to just go "crazy", so my friends, I did. I hope you all like the final results! This is the front of my new iPad Bag! I just love the Zig Zag Revolution!! The beautiful back of sideways zig zags! Zig zag every way.

What I learned during this festival is:

1. It is easier to baste with this Than trying to put 100 pins in something to quilt it. 2. How to make a flap and bind around…

I won 2 giveaways myself (it is so exciting). I will show what I won, when they get here. I swapped the extra Fugly fabric I had with people in the USA the United Kingdom. When all the fabric swaps arrives I will post them for you to see. I am glad to have meet so many new friends from out in blogyourself next time.

Then I made my Blocks for Craftsy Block of the Month for February. I learned how to make a Balkan Puzzle Block, and Magic Triangles (make 4 HST at one time) cool way to do a Half Square Triangle (HST)
This block is called Chunky Chevron and is made with HST's, using the draw line method. I have used this method many times before, for making 2 blocks at a time. Amy Gibson at Stitchery Dickery Dock, is amazing in her tutorials, or (tuts) as the bloggers call them.

I really love B…
