Tutu Shirts

I  made these tutu shirts this weekend. The first one is for my niece Emily. You wouldn’t believe how cheap the shirt was. I was looking at shirts on the clearance rack. The tag said $5.99. It rang up on sale for. $0.54. Cheaper than the thrift stores. I love a good deal. 

This tutu shirt I am going to list in My Etsy Shop once I finish it. I have a few more things I want to add to it and make a hair bow to go with it. That means going shopping. 🙂

Wonky Houses and Quilt Blocks

I started making some wonky houses today for a swap. I got the bodies done for 10 houses. Next step is the sky and roof for each house. Here is the link for the tutorial on how to make wonky houses.

I also made two replacement blocks for people who got flaked on during the last two beginner quilt block swaps I hosted on Swap-Bot.

This one is called Road to California.

This on is called Square in a Square 2.

Fat Quarter Friday

In order to try to generate more traffic on my site I have decided to have Fat Quarter Friday. Well what is that you ask. Everyone who posts a comment between now and Thursday evening 11:59pm will be entered into a drawing to win the fat quarter pictured. I thought it would be neat to show the fat quarter. Now I have quite a stash going. So I am going to do this for the next 4 weeks. If I get a good response then I will continue with the drawing on a weekly basis. If not then maybe we will do it every two weeks. So if you want to enter to win leave me a comment.

He is this weeks fat quarter.


Oh and all my fabric is washed. I like to have it all washed that way when I need to use it I don’t have to wash it.

Happy Commenting.

2007 Amish Block of the Month Quilt


Here is a picture of a top I put together today. The blocks are from a swap on 3 Sisters Cyber Quilting from 2007. It was called the Amish Block of the Month. I decided that I wanted to have a fancy/ interesting border. So I decided to use the pioneer braid from Quiltville. Thanks to Bonnie and all her hard work. I was intimidated by it but thought I would give it a try and see how it went. It was easier than I thought it would be. I have some left over pieces that I am going to use with some other material to make a baby quilt.

Patience Corners Table Runner


I made this table runner as a Christmas gift for a friend. The pattern is from Quilter’s Cache. It is called Patience Corners. It uses 4 1/2 inches squares and 2 1/2 inch strips. This block is great for stash busting. It was so easy to make. The block size is 12 1/2 unfinished. I quilted it in the ditch with my machine. I think a scrappy quilt would look awesome using this block. I have tons of 2 1/2 inch strips from swaps and left overs. I am definitely making a quilt with this pattern.

Criss Cross Coasters

Criss cross coasters

I came across this pattern on the AllSorts Blog and thought that I would like to try that. I have tons of scrap squares that are left overs from other projects. My squares where only 4 inches though. The directions called for 4 1/2 inch squares. So I just down sized a little. It was a very easy and fast project. It took about 15 minutes. I ended up mailing these to my mother as part of her birthday present. My 4 year old son wants me to make some more. He thinks they are really cool. So do I.

Hobo Tote Bag

I decided that I needed to make myself a tote bag for church. It seems like I always leave with more than I come with. So to make it easier on myself I made this.


I was at Hancock fabric and they were having a half off sale. They had this awesome batik material sewn into patches. I think I got a half of a yard for around $1.50. I lined it with a green batik and sewed a pink floral pocket onto the green material. I just love batik material. It is just so colorful and speaks to the child in me. This bag was very easy to make. I have gotten a few compliments at church too. Not too bad for a days work.
