Mingling

Hello again my friends!! 

Can you believe that this is the last day of 2012? Every year goes by faster and faster! 

Just wanted to pop in and say hi and that I hope all of you had a very Merry Christmas and of course a safe New Year!! 

I've been up to a few things since my last post...

I was in a bee about two years ago or so (gasp!)  called Putting the Bee in Christmas.  It was a bee geared towards making Christmas quilts. So off my fabric went, and happily it came right back. Unfortunately after that, there it sat. This year I really wanted to make a tree skirt so after trying to decide on a pattern, it came to me that I still had these blocks waiting to be made up.  So away to work I went. I didn't do anything crazy with it, but I loved how it turned out! Sometimes simple is just the way to go.

Thank you to everyone who helped me make this!!! <3 p="p">

I've also been making some pillows.  I made Rachel's Scruffily Quilt some years ago so when I saw her pillows, off I went! You can find the tutorial for her pillows HERE.

I've bee n playing around with Julie's Hex N More ruler... this girl is a genius...I've said that since I first read her blog....still a genius!

Playing around with @jaybirdquilts Hex N More Ruler and some @robertkaufman Tidbits and Treasures :)

I've been cutting 1.5" squares of Treasures and Tidbits (Robert Kaufman fabric) for a miscellaneous project.. meaning I have no idea what I am going to do with it just yet. I wanted to try Oh, Franssons stamp collection technique. I used smaller squares but its genius! 

I might be a bit mad...1.5" squares! #treasuresandtidbits #robertkaufman #quilting

Last but not least I got sucked in to the Scrappy Trip Along. I saw photos popping up all over Instagram (I'm KarrieLyne there if you wanna add me) so of course I poked into it and in one day I am almost half way done. Each block is 12" finished and I want to make mine 6 x 6 blocks, so I have 20 left to make. If you'd like to know more (and to make your own...wink wink) you can find the tutorial HERE.  If you want to see more of the wonderful Scrappy Trip quilts I am talking about, there is also a Flickr Group HERE. Beware....it's addicting!

Halfway done!! Even though this isn't my norm, I am really starting to like this! #scrappytripalong #abeautifuluglyquilt #quilting

What have you been up to!!?? 

Much Love!!!

  6. I just may join in the Scrappy Trip Along - I've been wanting to make a king-size quilt for my own bed, and maybe this is just the ticket! At the moment, I'm in that crafting hiatus between finishing Christmas projects and getting back to work on the regular stuff - so I decided to give knitting and the Honey Cowl a try! Just what I need - another project! But it's fun....

    Love your tree skirt!
