One Turns Into Nine


Last week I started putting the blocks of Fanfare together...
and it didn't take long before I had this quilt completed!



I really love how this block comes together! And I am so happy that
I used my DS fabrics from my stash!
I would make this again.. and make it larger!


Last week...


At our local guild we had a guest speaker that included a trunk show!

When I saw this one... I knew it would be an inspiration for
 bed covers for my two grand daughters!
I'm about to investigate finding a pattern...
which would be best case scenario!

But, in case I can't
 I need to start pulling the large flower ideas together.
I want to add a few little butterflies also. 
Evie gave it her approval when she saw the photo.
Elsea can't talk yet but I think she'll like it.



I have been meaning to share the  Christmas project that the
girls at Moda pulled together with a little help from some of
us out here in blogville...

They called it the Office Pillow Project!




You can go take a look, or a second look at the Cutting Table blog.


Here is my test block... and it's one that didn't make it into the mini.
The stripes made me always think "yikes" when I looked at it.
So, you won't see that one in the final group.



This is from a Fig Tree pattern: Mini Sunshine




This one is called Down South by She Quilts A Lot aka Peta Peace.

This is how the group of minis came together...
all the small tops were made into pillows!

I love your Fanfare! I have the pattern on my to-make list, I just need to decide what fabric to use for it. I originally saw your pillows in the Moda blog post. I think I need to make some pillows - so useful and a good way to try a new block.

I love your Mahalo quilt!

Did you use curved piecing or applique'?

Gorgeous!

You've been busy, that all look great, I thought of candy canes when I saw the striped block.
