Week 17: April 24-30, 2011

Lets get fancy this week. Kick it up a notch and use things that we typically wouldn't! If you've ever wanted to try a crazy quilt, this might be great for a miniature. Pull out the lace, pull out embroidery stitches, pull out the fancy fabrics that I know you've been hoarding for that 'special' or 'perfect' project. Hopefully this is a special enough project.

Theme: FRILLS!

Week 16: April 17-23, 2011

I'm celebrating SPRING this week. :) One of my favorite activities when I was little was to fly a kite, and I'm trying to get my daughter into it too. She does like to be outside and play. We plan on making our own kites soon. Just now waiting for the "perfect" day to go fly a kite.

Lets go fly a KITE and send it SOARING, up to the atmosphere, up where the air is clear, lets go FLY A KITE!

This Weeks Theme: KITE

Hexagon Obsessed.. Honest

I am so obsessed with Hexagons. They're taking over. Literally. But, I've finally found a use for a jelly roll that I've had for over a year. And I've been using my scraps up for a scrappy GFG quilt. I'm also going to be making a GFG with the Odyssea jelly roll.

They're really portable, and I just LOVE hexies. Maybe a swap in the works? oh.. now that would feed my obsession.

Week 15: April 10-16, 2011

Was folding some scraps of fabric the other day, and decided to sort them by themes. I found a bunch of music notes, musical instruments and other things that pertain to music. Can you guess what this weeks theme is??

Theme: Face the Music. Anything that has to do with music.

Week 14 - April 2-9, 2011

Lets go with another fun one this week. I want to try all sorts of different colors and only from my stash. Nothing new purchased for this week, so it's like a double challenge.

Theme: Make it a Rainbow.
