Pinwheel Delight

 Hello Everyone,

Today, I am varying the project type.  I have been doing a bit of quilting and wanted to share this Pinwheel quilt I made for a new baby. The size is 40" x 48".

I used 100% cotton fabrics.  The pinwheels were pieced and than machine appliqued to the white background.  

I hand quilted the quilt and used a bias binding.  I forgot how much I enjoyed making quilts.  This also gives me the chance to clear out my fabric stash.  LOL

Hope you have enjoyed checking out this quilting project.  I think I will post my quilting activity once a month.  See you next time with more card making projects.

Straight Up Masculine Birthday card

 Hello Everyone,

Hope you all had joyful Holidays!  Happy New Year!
Back today with a card I made for my nephew. I used stamps from Stampin Up and some masculine colored papers.  The fiber trim is a piece of selvedge I tore from a scrap of fabric.  Makes a nice embellishment and doesn't fray.  

I colored the whiskey and sentiment with watercolor markers. I had to do a bit of blending with 3 colors to the get right shade for the whiskey. 

The inside.

So glad you stopped by today.  And, I will be back next time with a quilt project.
