Lot's of things to share and ... Finally!!!... the giveaway.
Been super busy here. Our trip to Italy feels like it is sneaking up on me way too fast. I wanted to make some things for the girls (SILs and MIL) to take on the trip. I had been promising my Dear MIL a new tote bag for summer. She loves warm tones and this Poppy fabric, by Laura Gunn, is perfect:
Then I wanted to make the Dear SILs some lingerie bags, so that the airport baggage handlers wouldn't handle our unmentionables :)
I put tiny little undies and bras on them (including lace on the top of the panties) ;P Aren't they cute??
Now the new project... Beth at Love Laugh Quilt wanted some company on a stripe project, so a few of us are playing along. This morning I thought I would take a pic of my stripes:
Then I thought I would just cut into one of them and make one block, to see how it would come out:
Oops, got a little carried away. Before I started the project I made up my mind that I wasn't going to tear my hair out if the miters didn't perfectly match up. I am glad, because they aren't perfect, but they are really cute. I think it is amazing how even the ones that I didn't think I would like came out so pretty. The rust and green fabric, I thought would be boring, but it isn't at all.
The one on the top left doesn't perfectly match in the center, but it isn't bad. The one in the lower left isn't wrong either. I am using Kaffe Fassett's Earthy Mitered Boxes (from Simple Shapes...) as an inspiration, and he has a few like this in the quilt. I am not sure if I like it, but I will make a few more... if they don't make the front they will work on the back.
See the rust and green is really nice!
Okay so now on to the important part.... I am giving away 6 coordinating fat quarters of Kitty Yoshida's newest fabric line "Brooklyn Heights". I know, it is gorgeous (perfect for a fall/winter handbag)!
