This has been one crazy weekend for me. Filled with mowing, laundry, cleaning, watering, writing the patterns for the two quilts I designed for the MN shop hop fabric and spending 23 minutes in the DQ drive up lane (one car ahead of me) waiting for my small sundae with butterscotch dip...no wonder it flew by so fast. I also may have -possibly- spent a chunk of time procrastinating and working on the double wedding ring quilt I started last year...but I also may not have, I'll let you figure that one out :)
As promised, I'll show you what I plan to do with the free black and whites I get from the MN shop hop....OK, so when I went to take the picture (singular), I found TONS (plural) of other things that would be fun too. Don't worry, I'll share all the great ideas.
You could make a "Bento Box" (Did you know bento box means lunch box?)
"Square Dancing" Once again, all you need is a little extra batik
You could make your 20 - half yard pieces into fat quarters and put the extra set in one of these great bags (I'd pick the black and white one) and give it to a quilty friend!
I bet you could make at least a bazillion (maybe 2) of these cute little "Cash & Carry" things by Terry Atkinson. Perfect size for change, credit cards, gift cards, Polly pockets, the feet for your sewing machine, reeds for your clarinet, coupons, the little rubber things you put on the end of your knitting needles....the possibilities are truly endless!
Truly, the possibilities are endless. I encourage you to take out that box of patterns and sit and thumb through them as you sip iced tea (with the lemon on the rim, of course!), while rocking in your big ol' rocker on the front porch, as you are serenaded by crickets chirping and the neighbors dogs yapping in the background to the tune of "Come Fly with Me" by Frank Sinatra...I think I just described the American dream!
What do you plan to make with yours?
Don't forget to comment on my last post...I don't want ya to miss out on a free charm pack!
