Fabric give away

No I'm not giving fabric away, Sarah Fielke is! While waiting for a coat of paint to dry I started perusing some of my favorite blogs tonight and came across her give away. It's fabulously fun fabric!! head on over to her blog and check it out! The Last Piece.

Oops, I almost forgot the name of the fabric line..... "From Little Things."

Cute isn't it? I absolutely love the happy colors and designs. Gotta love a little whimsy =)

Quilt, paint or make arms?

The butler finally has a bride. So much to do and so little time to do it. Quilt, paint or make arms for the bride?

Every time I see this dress it makes me think of my friend Carol. She made the dress for a Titanic dinner party and then retired it to this dress form. It stood in her guest room for years until she gave it to me a couple weeks ago. She's a life saver as I didn't know where I was going to find the time to make a period dress. I rolled it into the Halloween room and saw my Butler holding the head Chad bought me. YES! The perfect match. Now all I have to do is make/buy her arms. I think they make a cute couple. Don't you = )

She is a huge improvement over his first wife, who's bubble wrap body with slightly square bosoms kept sliding down her pole. I'll repurpose the pole with a clown for the nursery.

Charity quilt

I wish I had written down the name of the book Lynn's art quilt depicts. It's a wonderful children's book. The quilt will be auctioned off later this year at the Quilts For Kids charity event. This was my first time quilting something with tulle laid over the top, so a bit of experimenting had to be done. Once I realized not all of the tulle could be removed so I could quilt underneath it, I decided on much lighter quilting. I think in the end it matched the light feel of the clouds better anyways. Lynn's work is amazing!

I love this Africa themed wall hanging. Nadine did an amazing job piecing it. It's artistic yet whimsical and was FUN to quilt.

This is another quilt of Nadine's, I had a hard time saying good bye to this one lol. Love it!

And last a close up of a border I had a lot of fun doing. I hope I can quilt this design on one of my own soon =)
