January 21
Cherry Blossoms ~ You are here!
It has been so much fun working from this
gorgeous and inspiring book by Amanda Murphy,
full of detailed lessons on the color wheel,
and 12 beautiful projects using Kona cottons,
with many colorway options.
Don’t you just love this yummy Kona Sunrise bundle?
I used this and a few other Kona cottons to make
Color Burst from Amanda’s book…
just a little “spaghetti” strips after cutting Color Burst…
and the sewn blocks are ready to be assembled!
The instructions where very easy to follow,
and this project was super quick,
and oh so fun to make,
especially with all the vivid colors…
you know how much I love vibrant color.
So here it is! I love how it turned out!
Well, I also started on another Kona project…


but, well, kind-a-sort-a ran out of time…
so…
would you like to make something with these little hexies
I’ve already cut?
Just leave me a little comment and I’ll enter you into the giveaway!
I’ll choose a winner next Monday, 1/27/14.
Now, how about making your own Color Burst quilt?
I promise, you’ll love this book and all the projects in it!
You can find Amanda’s book here!
Thanks so much for stopping by,

Coming soon…

 Thanks everyone for visiting on my day of
the Let’s Twist to the 60’s Blog Hop
and sharing about your favorite quilting too!
Yes, most of us love our rotary cutters
and I know I probably would not have started quilting without it,
but at the moment, the Silhouette Cameo
is my favorite and most useful tool!
Have you ever heard of it?
It’s an electronic die cutter and a totally awesome tool!
I will tell you all about it soon!
Hope you’re having a great weekend!

It’s my day… and a little giveaway… °Ü°

Oh what fun it’s been seeing all the great 60’s
and batik creations made for this hop
hosted by Mary from I piece 2-Mary
and Mdm Samm over at Sew We Quilt!
Thank you ladies for another great hop!
October 3
When trying to decide what to make,
I just had to take one look at our hop button
and knew it would be a Twister project!
I loved playing Twister with my siblings
and was inspired by the game’s spinner
so I made this little mug rug to
go with the Twister mug I found on EBay!
and used some of the Island Batik fabrics I used
to create a Batik version of my new pattern, Sunday Ride
And since this hop is all about batiks…
I made this runner using my Propelled pattern
and used more fabric by Island Batik
Would you like to make this runner?
I have 2 pre-cut runner kits, each with a Propelled pattern
to giveaway to 2 of y’all!
You have until Wednesday, Oct 9 to enter
a Rafflecopter giveaway
So glad you came over for a visit
and hope you’re enjoying this wonderful hop!
Hugs,
