Coming soon to a blog near you!

There is still time to vote for your favorite project in the Valentine’s Day Showcase – head on over and vote! You can vote for more than one project – so spread the love where you feel the need 🙂

I thought I would give you a sneak peak at some of the things I have been working on – each has a tutorial coming soon!

Have you heard of the Home Sweet Home QAL going on over at Kim’s Crafty Apple? Kim asked me via twitter back in January if I would like to be a designer for her QAL and I said “yes, of course!” About a week ago panic set in, I had NO IDEA what I was going to make for my block. I seriously considered doing a tree house block – but I just couldn’t settle on a design. What do you think? Do you like this block? I see 3 more similar blocks being made and a wall hanging being created!

This is going to be a wall hanging for my mom. I made this using the Tri-Recs ruler (review coming next week!) and I honestly just started cutting and sewing without any real plan in mind. I am calling this “Guiding Star” because for so long, my mom has been just that in my life. The only time I have gone more than a day without talking to her has been when she goes traveling overseas with my dad (and we usually end up web camming whenever she does!). What do you think? Will she like it?

I joined the 3×6 Bee on Flickr this quarter and I said I would be open to any type of hive. I ended up in the paper piecing hive (hives immediately set in!!!). I have been wanting to improve my paper piecing (I’ve only done 4 blocks previously) and now I had no choice! I picked a block from the Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Blocks and drew it up in EQ7. I love how it turned out – it almost looks 3-dimensional.  I will have a tutorial up complete with cutting and sewing templates in the next couple of weeks.

What have you been up to? Did you get any sewing done over the long weekend?

Today I am off to the doctor to follow-up on some ongoing issues, so I won’t be around too much in the morning and later today the fridge repair company is coming back for the 4th time in an attempt to fix my ice maker! At this rate I hope to have ice by summer!

    I love those scrappy trees! They are adorable. I’m in the same boat with you on paper piecing….golly it is hard for me! Hope you and your fridge are doing much better by the end of the day! LOL

    Your blocks are so fun – I especially love the orange, blue and gray one 😉

    Bummer about your freezer not working. Hope the guy can fix it and if you need anything let me know. =)

    I absolutely love those blocks! I am sure that your mom will love the wall-hanging. I hope the doctor goes well and that your freezer starts behaving! 🙂

    Cute pine trees, and love your stars 🙂 I’m running a Foundation Paper Piecing For The Terrified QAL on my blog at the moment, I’m determined to dispel the ‘it’s too hard’ myth 😀
