Star Quilt Block

Here is my Star Quilt Block!

I used the tutorial found on Piece n Quilt.
She has several diffrent tutorials she did as Block of the Month. I am going to catch up - we shall see how far I get!

My batting for my design wall is white, so is my background material. Makes it hard to see - but it is oh so cute!!!!

Baby Gowns

About 2 years ago or so...I found a tutorial on a blog that used t-shirts to make baby gowns. What a brilliant idea! So my girls and I grabbed all the "old" t-shirts we could find and went to work. We made quite a few gowns to donate to the local Newborns in Need chapter.

Here are pics of what we made

They are so easy to make.
Head over to  This Momma Makes Stuff and check out her great tutorial. Make a few extra to help a baby in need. It's a win -win. You upcycle, recycle, help a little baby in need. No one loses!

have scraps from tees? Make these cute bracelets from Lilblueboo ! See - another upcycle, recycle win!

If you make these great gowns or bracelets, share and let me know. I would love to see them.

Capturing my creativity

Taking the e courses has really gotten my creativity flowing again. I realized I NEED to spend time in the studio.
I brought out a few unfinished quilts and started working on them again. I also set out my scrapbook and decided to take a page a day or so. Baby steps. I just need to do a little at a time.
Here are some of the quilt pieces.
My not so wonky blocks in blue - I have 6 - 14 inch blocks done. I need maybe 3 more? I have not decided. It is a WIP that has been going on for about a year.

Another Year Long WIP. It is a quilt I started for Layla - I MUST finish this before that child turns 18! I have enough of the blocks on the right done. I am designing and cutting the blocks on the left. 

Because I can not have actually finish any projects without starting a new one! Geesh - Fabrics for a new quilt. Yes, I know  - I have issues. Yes - that is a chocolate cupcake in the upper left hand corner. My Em made them and they are delish!  
What are you creating today?
