Finally, a new blog post. Can you believe it? I wish I could say that I was busy with fall quilt market and new products, but that is not the case. I have been taking a little break from blogging, then I got too busy with other things and time has gotten away from me. Those other things include some fun things – like my sister having a new baby (pics to come), preparing for and teaching for 6 days at Lake Beauty Bible Camp – and a few not so fun things like the flu and catching up. But, I’m back to share about something fun.
Have you gotton your Winter 2011 issue of Quilts and More yet?
Inside you will find the newest addition of Scrap Lab.
If you aren’t familiar with Scrap Lab, its a design challenge with Camille of Thimble Blossoms and Joanna of Fig Tree Quilts. They are given a challenge of making a small project using a set amount of fabric. This time the challenge involved one charm pack of Ruby (Camille and Bonnie’s newest fabric line for Moda) and some jumbo rickrack. Each time they invite a third designer to join them in the challenge. I’m happy to say that this time I got to join them!
Here’s is my little my little project:
It’s a pillow (obviously) with a fun, little, dimentional bow.
The entire project is completed with just one charm pack of Ruby.
For Camille’s project, she made these cute little baby blocks. (she is also responsible for making that cute little baby too)
Joanna made these charming little placemats.
Have you noticed part of the theme here? Everything is little and quick to make. That way they make great gifts (just in time for Christmas) or the perfect project to complete in an evening. Or if you are ambitious, you could whip up all three this weekend!
In that case, you will need to run out and pick up the magazine right away today. If you want to get started right now, you can find the directions for my pillow online at APQ’s website, right now! Just click here to get started now.
