Pat Sloan's Valentine Giveaway. See that little earbud set....that will be going along with me this weekend so I can watch some videos when I have high-speed internet!
I have to admit that I was so excited to win this great bundle of fabric but when I got it I had no idea of what to make. I don't usually go for big prints and to me I couldn't see how they all coordinated......so they sat in my stash. Well I decided I needed a bigger tote bag for this weekend so I pulled out this bundle and started cutting.
Quilter's Candy that I had bought from Connecting Threads last year so I cut it into strips and added it between the blocks. Of course I didn't have enough.....now what to do??
Digging further in my stash I found a turquoise that is at least 15 years old but matched perfectly so I made a piece of fabric. The funny thing was, the more I worked on it the more I liked the combination of prints!!
I did some fast free motion quilting on my 15-91 Singer sewing machine using Warm & Natural batting.
Wow am I long winded!! I'll have to wait till my next post to show you what the tote looks like.....believe me I'll be able to fit lots of goodies in it this weekend when I go to the Missouri Star Quilt Co. grand opening!
I still have 2 giveaways going on so if you missed them check the last 2 posts!
