Smarty Girl Bag

My mom wanted to make the Heather Bailey Smarty Girl bag and so I made one as we made hers.  I, of course, used the Outfoxed fabrics with Anna Maria Horner, because that is all that I can seem to use!!

Meal Planning Board

I have been looking all over Pinterest for a meal planner but couldn't quite find what I wanted.  So, mom and I went to JoAnn and found our own supplies and made a board.  I absolutely love it and hope the board will be useful for us!!

Books and Blocks Bee

I started one last round of Books and Blocks Bee based on the book Modern Blocks. We will take up to 9 more people and make the block/blocks of your choice for your month.  Not too much commitment as you only have to make a block a month.  Consider joining us in the fun!!
You have to request to join through Flickr.  Here is the LINK.  Let's try to get this group up and running for these ladies who would like to join.  Even if you can't make another commitment, consider mentioning this on your blog to get it filled.  Thanks!!

Solistice Star - The Ribbon Star

This block was too much fun. I finished it quickly and wanted to crank out a ton more.  I love these fabrics too.  Find more about the Solistace Stars here!

Sew.Happy.Quilt QAL

This quilt along has been a blast.  I have had such a fun time pushing myself to learn more techniques and fun blocks.  This blog introduced me to Starch and I have never had so much fun.  Plus it makes my craft room smell good!!!

Yesterday I was too late to get into CityStitches Bee based on blocks from the Modern Blocks book that has 99 blocks made by incredible people. Well, CityStitches graciously offered to lead someone in how to lead a Bee to allow others to participate. I volunteered and there is still room. I am willing to lead up to two groups. I am posting from my IPhone so this will be a fast post. Find the group at Books and Blocks Bee you will find us. There are 8 spots left right now for the first group. Come sign up and buy the book!!

Craftsy BOM

It makes me laugh to say BOM instead of Block of the Month.  I am guessing that means I have a warped sense of humor or may be trapped in the body of a 6th grader.  Here are the two blocks I made from the Craftsy Block of the Month.  It is not too late to join in and a blast to make.  We made a Asterisk and a Wonky block.  I am additcted to the wonky block and may want to make a whole quilt with this fun block.  The materials are a gray Bella solid and Tula Pink Prince Charming.

Come join the fun on craftsy!

Japanese x and + Blocks

I joined a swap awhile back and the swap date is quickly approaching.  I have 2 - almost 3 done.  Now I finally have a rhythm down and will be attempting to complete all the blocks I plan to make and swap.  That is the only problem....how many to make and swap!!

Want to make a block yourself?  Find a tutorial on badskirt Amy's blog!!
