For some reason,  I have gotten on a 1 inch squares
(finished) kick.
I was in my studio the other day
sitting on the floor with a PILE of scrap fabrics
Hubby comes in and the story goes like this:
Hubby: Hey Honey! What are you doing?
Me: Cutting fabric.

 Hubby: Where?
Me: Right here!

Hubby: Those tiny things?
Me: Yes.

Hubby: What would you do with those tiny things anyway?
Me: Make a quilt!
He obviously doesn't get it!
He obviously doesn't know that quilters don't throw ANYTHING away!
So, I have cut quite a few 1 inch squares
and I have stored them in this cute container
(more on that later).
and...I have actually started to layout my plan.

Thanks for listening
(and who knows, I might even put together a little tutorial for you)!
Until Next Time.... Happy Quilting!

Last Minute Baby Shower Gift

One of my co-workers is expecting her first baby---

a BOY!

(A you know, little boys have a special place in my heart)

She isn't into the usual baby blue colors,
so for her baby shower gift I wanted to make
something different.

I grabbed these Dr. Seuss fat quarters and pieced them together to
make a changing mat and burp cloths.

I even pieced the back together.


My co-worker loved them and they became the
hit of the baby shower!

Until Next Time ... Happy Quilting
