Alittle this and alittle that

So much has been going on over here. Swaps and more swaps. Fabric. Begging. Basting.Quilting.Pumpkin Patch.

Sew.Love.Chirp. Hoop I made for the Scrappy Hoop Swap but I think I need to start over since I think my partner will like something else that I have up my sleeve. I think I am going to give this one to a friend.

Sew.Love.Chirp. Hoop


I joined in on the 4th round of the Pillow Talk Swap. I have been in all the rounds and it is my favorite swap. I just love all the creativity and who doesn't love a home dec pillow? Here is my inspriation for my secret parnter. I really want a larger pillow this time ( 20" - 24").

I was in a mood today and went to the awesome fabric store, M&L Fabrics, that is about 45 min. away but it just has a HUGE selection. If you are ever in Orange County CA it is the place to go.

New fabrics


Gweniveve has been begging me for weeks now to make her a blue blanket. So I finally had her pick out all the fabrics she wanted it in and I am just about ready to start. I need to make my Hoop for the swap and then I should be able to begin.

Blue Quilt


Then I finally basted and quilted my O'Christmas Tree quilt. I am just looking for a great green stripe for the binding but I have had no luck. Does anyone have some or know of some??

Basting & Quilting today


To top it all off we took the girls to the pumpkin patch to have some fun.

Sisters


Soon I have alot of Swap posts. I just have to wait to make mine for the Scrappy Hoop Swap to send to my secret partner. I received mine today but I want to post about them together. I am also waiting for my partner to receive the things I sent her for the All About Christmas Swap for me to post about that one. Yes I have been involved with a lot of swaps! I have loved them but it will be great to get back to sewing things for myself. I am really excited to make the Blue quilt for Gwen.

Wow, your Christmas tree quilt is sooooo fun! Looking forward to seeing more of that.

I've only done one swap and have been trying to resist getting in another - just because there's so much sewing I have to do for Christmas and for our family. I think maybe next year!

Darn Girl! You have been busy! Love your hoop! I have been itching to try out applique lately! Maybe this weekend :)

Love your Christmas quilt! I love that you aren't really using Christmasy fabrics, but together it all looks Christmasy!

That is a great Christmas tree quilt! I think lizzy house's Red Letter Day green stripe would be perfect. But it's HTF... The
punctuation line has a green stripe but it's pretty tight so it may not be what you are looking for: http://www.fatquartershop.com/store/stores_app/Browse_Item_Details.asp?Shopper_id=87051031716488705&Store_id=499&page_id=23&Item_ID=48144&Parent_Ids=

I might be willing (depending on how much you need) to swap you some Red Letter Day stripe if you decide you'd like to use that. :)
