I'm Back!!!!...



Wow!...I have really missed you guys and now that Spring Quilt Market is over where I showed Millie's Closet...I can get back to my regular schedule of posting.
I have a lot of things to show you and will be able to as soon as my patterns are ready... soon.


blue/green color way

In the meantime...
I wanted to tell you a little bit 
about my "designer cloth" prints...
aka cheater cloth.

I have used the fabric straight
 from the bolt on several projects 
and that's been really fun...
but I also cut it up into squares 
to use individually on several projects.

Each square measures 
a little larger than 5 1/2"...
making them perfect to use
 as you normally would a charm square.





red/aqua/pink color way

Here are close up pics of each one showing a few of the squares...
but there are 20 different prints
 (from the bolts)
 in each color way...



yellow/green color way

So it has really provided me
 with a good variety of prints
 to work with in my new patterns and 
it's been sew fun!




I made a little project using
 2 1/2" squares...
a few from the bolt and the rest from
 the designer cloth.





The project also included 
my new lt. gray solid
 and red perle cotton.
I'm planning on doing a tutorial
 on this little project...
just wondering if you are interested?

I was really starting to get worried about it. I almost wrote you an email to make sure you were alright. I figured if you kept on pining you were alright.
I was waiting patiently waiting for these posts, and can hardly wait to see what is next.

Oh yes, I'd be interested...especially in the perle cotton: what needle do you use? do you bother with a frame?stuff like that. And I already have some of the cheater cloth and I love it x

eva said...

Please, do! I would love a tutorial - it looks sooooo cute!

•stephanie• said...

Millie (it's okay to call her Millie, right?) is even more adorable in person, and that spool quilt is calling my name. Thanks again for the quilt shop recommendations - especially since you're so crazy busy at this time of year!!
The Material Girls was so fun. I'm hoping to make it to Pine Needles before we leave. My Girlfriends Quilt Shoppe and Quilters Haven might have to wait till next time. Something about spending time with our kids in Provo.........

Shayla Sharp said...

I just cut into some of the pink/blue/red designer cloth for a Frosted Pumpkin Hoop Bag--it really is beautiful and very, very hard to cut and give away! :)

Julie Phillips, aka Julieloveslucy SCS said...
