Fat Quarter Shop Blogger's Choice FQ Bundle!

 I die.
 
This is happening, kids.
 
Kelly and I have our own bundle.
And this is it! 
 
We picked stash builders, in ROY G BIV colors, to satisfy our inner child.
This is how the bundle comes - ain't it purty?
We've named it "Rainbows and Unicorns".
 
I've been wanting to make another version of my New York Beauty from the book and I thought about making it in fun and funky colors. So I experimented with the fabrics in the bundle.
 
The other thing I tried was playing with the scale of the template. I wanted to see if I could make it smaller. This is kinda tricky as I had to account for the seam allowances on the curves, but it was fine in the end. 


 
This is some Madrona Road and it's really pretty. I wanted that yummy yellow for the points, so I fussy cut in areas that didn't have much of the white flower in it it.
 
 

 
I'm pretty sure I've mentioned my love of paper piecing.
I. LOVE. me some paper piecing.
The purple is Oval Elements for Art Gallery. One of my faves.
 
 
 
 
 
 
I used a little scrap of a juicy stripe for the center.


I need to trim this little baby, but me likey.




This is another that I'm working on. The floral is from my stash and the navy is Dear Stella.
Mmmm.
And that green and orange together?
Makes my tummy tickle.
 
Go get this bundle. Right now. It's really yummy and has colors, prints and solids that you'll use.
Make sure you check out Kelly's quilt that she made from her bundle.
 
FQS is doing a GIVEAWAY of one of these bundles, people.
Go throw your name in the hat!

  4. LOVE the bundle! Beautiful! I know you are moving on but...I saw a quilt pattern in a well-known magazine and it was a complete rip off of a Denyse Schmidt free pattern THAT WAS STILL ON THE INTERNET! I wrote the magazine immediately with a link to the pattern. I was pretty mad. Your quilt is beautiful and I had copied down the pattern to 'do someday'. Keep up the good work!

  7. As tempting as it is to hug the pups, I've never done it! They have some teeth, and don't appear to really enjoy having anyone touch them!
