Quilt finished

Our youngest finally gets her quilt! Finished it a few days ago. Now it's just Mr. Q and I that don't have one, but a nice little collection of kaffe facett fabrics is growing in my stash! So... as soon as the holidays are over, look out...

It's in the BAG!

Okay another one of these cute little patchwork bags. This time Grace made a horsey one for herself. yay Grace!

One side....

Then a little shake shake...

and a poke here and there...

Voila! It's a new bag!

Shakara's Pillow

A pillow for a friend...

I've never tried the satin stitch machine applique, so this was an experiment.
The corners were a little hard to maneuver, but overall, not too bad.

the eye for color

mr. q has a great eye for color. he's rearranging for me! here's the blocks layed out for gracie's quilt. it's actually just really BIG bowtie blocks. i wanted the blocks to be big enough to show some of the playful fabric. cute little snails and kittens.

got keys?

lining up some more key chains for holiday gifts.
