I didn't really want to start another sampler, but I am interested in skill building, so I joined up with Sewn. She is starting soon, so jump over to her blog and get signed up.

I call this one "jungle stripe"
This print has been in my stash for some time, I remember purchasing it at a local chain store for a guild project for tornado victims in a nearby city at least 3 or 4 years ago
My best good friend from work was with me and helped me choose 8 different bright cheerful fabrics
I still love it

I made a wonky star and finished shortstop! sorry the pics are so small. All of a sudden I can't open any pictures I send to myself from my phone, and the ones from my phone's website are very small.
go check out Heidi's blog and see what other works of art were created last night!

I finished this pillow just in time for my nephew's birthday on Saturday. He is nine years old, for six months he and my son will be the same age. I was hoping he'd like it, and he did. After I finished it, my little 2 year old took it away from from me, threw it on the floor and laid down with her little head on it. I had to get it away from her to wrap it. When N unwrapped it, one of his friends said, dude, your aunt and uncle must really love you a lot. We do. His mom got this pic and sent it to me.

I know it is not Wednesday yet, but tomorrow may be too busy to post, and I'm ready now! I had planned on making all my flowers with yellow centers, but the stripe fabric was crying out for another color. So it has to be in a totally different quilt, right? Also, the fabric is a different weight, so I have definitely started two quilts, not one. That works out well, my son and daughter will each get one this way. I have not perfected my hexie folding technique, they are slightly different sizes no matter how hard I try. I will keep trying! it is too much fun to quit.

I love the way the striped hexie looks, I have another colorful fabric selected for next week.

Shortstop is almost finished. Up close, this quilt looks like a mess to me, too many fabrics and that stripe, just too much. From above, it looks pretty good. I like it now. I can see the circles, pretty cool. I may make it again someday without the stripes. Now take a look at the back, I like that ever so much better.
