A Few Finishes

Just need to add a label to this little mini and get it in the mail. Hope my partner likes it. I had fun playing with rick-rack. I'm going to have to do that again as I have a large collection of rick-rack. I first saw rick-rack on quilts blocks right here on one of my very favorite blogs. The author has a book coming out this fall. I can't wait to check it out!

Another little mini complete. This one needs a label too.

A fellow quilter sent me her selvages, so I made her a bookmark to say thanks. Doesn't she use some pretty fabrics? Love these black, red, and white prints.

My Ugly Fabric
And lastly, we had a blast at our monthly Orlando Modern Quilt Guild meeting. Kathryn demonstrated a watercolour painting technique used on muslin with a soy milk resist. It was really neat. Now I just need to find some dry, white soybeans to make the resist. I wish there was a Whole Foods on this side of town. It would quadruple my grocery bill, but I just love that place. The cheese section alone brings me to my knees!

The fish fabric above is what I found in my brown paper bag challenge. Our guild is having an ugly fabric challenge. We make something using the fabric we received and show the results at the October meeting. I think I got pretty lucky. I like the colors in this fish fabric. Other members were not as lucky! ;)

I hope everyone has a fun-filled week. I plan on tackling my UFO pile. Scary, but I'm inspired after watching a few A&E's Hoarders episodes. Talk about scary! I don't know why that show fascinates me. Frightening and very sad, but they usually have a happy ending.

  1. I love your little girl mini. I saw the blog you found it on, but does she have a pattern or tutorial? Or did you have to figure it out on your own?


I would love to hear from you. Comments make my day!
