The Online Quilter's Market!

I posted a tutorial a little while ago on the Online Quilters Market!
This is a site created by the Missouri Star Quilt Co. Crew that allows quilters the opportunity to display tutorials, reviews, and fun new quilt happenings :)

By participating here it's your chance to be a star! There are some great things going up already... such as... my broken breakfast tutorial! I'd love it if you could go and vote up my post!

The great thing for anyone who posts is, once a post gets to 20 votes you get a gift certificate to the MSQC shop! Who doesn't want to get paid for blogging! There are lots of posts that go up over there but the really good ones deserve to be noticed so on top of the gift card a post with atleast 20 votes also gets posted on the MSQC blog for all of there readers to see and then come see you! It's a win for everyone!

So go help me out and then post your own! Have fun!

I love inspiration!

I follow a girl you may know, Nova from a cuppa and a catch up, and she just reminded me how much I love inspiration! Check out this inspiration trail!

It started here, with a wall hanging from liesl at disdressed...
It's gorgeous and understandably inspired the wonderful people at House on Hill Road
Then House on Hill Road created this one which inspired Nova...
Finally Nova from a cuppa and a catch up posted this inspiring set of blocks,
I love the little birdie in the tree and I have some of those bunnies in the star (random piece of fabric that just gathered it's self into my hands, during some random fabric shopping trip) that I have been trying to figure out what to do with! I love them.

In fact, I am inspired by all three blocks. What a fun trip I had following the trail, it's all about the joy of the hunt! The inspiration moment!

I think I'm gonna have to try something new!

Back in the swing of things, from Far Far Away

So glad school is started and... not.
It's been crazy busy the last 2+ weeks since the start of school and just before it :) But I'm forcing myself back into my sewing (should that require forcing? I think not!) with a baby shower gift! I've been dying to use this Heather Ross Far Far Away fabric that I got at quilt market last fall! And since my wonderful friend had a beautiful baby girl I was reveling in the perfect moment and put this together yesterday!

I love the fairy tale images Heather created! I really want to get some Far Far Away 2 I have a friend with some in home dec weight... aah! It's so pretty :D
It's a changing pad so of course I had to give it something soft and fluffy for the backing!

I've got a boy one I'm finishing up for my etsy shop and then I'll have to see about finding some more minky and chenille backing fabric!
*thinking in your best fairytale accent*
Alas, a girl's work is never done!
Fair thee well my good friends. I wish thee much joy and sewing! Or joy in sewing :) which ever comes first!
