Rainbow Starburst Done

I finished it this afternoon.  Here is it in all its majesty...

 The front.
 The back.

Quilted a starburst pattern.

You can see my progress here.

Again, I fell in love with this quilt.  I feel like a fickle 16 year old falling in love over and over again.  

Now what to do next?????

Rainbow Starburst Wall Hanging

I jumped down the blog rabbit hole last week and ended up at Lily's Quilts Blog.  I loved her modern style quilts and loved that she had a lot of small know that I'm smitten with fast, sweet and complete projects.  I came across Lily's blog post for a paper pieced block that she calls ET Phone Home.   I immediately saw the block as a beautiful rainbow starburst.  My girl bug is nearly 6 and loves anything rainbow so I printed out the template and got busy.  

Half way done.

Paper piecing done.

 First border done.  Debated about adding a rainbow border.

Added a rainbow border and so happy that I did.  Love the way it looks.

Now it's ready to quilt up. Check back for the final reveal.

Little Bug House Giveaway

I am a lucky, lucky girl.  I have a lovely roof over my head, a wonderful hubby who works so hard for me to be a stay-at- home mom, 3 amazing kids, my bugs, who keep me busy and an Etsy shop that allows me to be the crafter that I love being.  

I would love to give one of you one Little Bug House item.  Just visit my shop here and then leave a comment telling me what is your favorite Little Bug House item.  The giveaway will last one week and I will draw a winner on Friday July 13th.  

Good luck and spread the word!!!

Christmas in July - Block 2

Here is my block #2 of FreeSpirit's Christmas in July Block-A-Thon.  I changed up the colors a little bit from the tutorial.  Also made the sashing solid as opposed to being broken up.  Love the way it turned out.

The red and the snowmen fabric is Blitzen by BasicGrey for Moda Fabrics.  

Can't wait for the next block reveal tomorrow!

Christmas in July - Block 1

I decided to follow along with FreeSpirit's Christmas in July Block-A- Thon.  I didn't follow directions and buy their suggested fabrics.  I do however have a stash of Christmas fabric just lying in wait for a project like this.  Here is my completed first block.

It was a fun block even though it was a little slow going as I made sure to sew very precisely.  Can't wait until the next block!
