trying my hand at something new (plus another quilt...surprised?)


i was getting a little overwhelmed with scraps...so, i decided to finally use them up!  these little fabric baskets are great for just that purpose.  they only require scraps of 2 x 2 inches!  love that!


and, i was becoming inundated with the fabric i bought from ikea...and was itching to make another birdie sling; this was the product of that union of needs...



my latest quilt project...i used a jelly roll of the nicey jane fabrics in a pattern from the jelly rolls book i mention often.  for the flower centers, i substituted red corduroy...becuase i wanted something tactile on the front.  the back is a pink minke...so soft and fuzzy, i am addicted to using this fabric as a backing.
