UFO projects.....

Done!  I finally worked on a few UFO's over the weekend.  It felt great having them finished!!  Even though they are small table runners, it's amazing how much time it takes to get things done.  
I used a double sided fusible batting from The Warm Company and I quilted these myself.  So my enormous UFO pile is now only huge instead.  Got to start somewhere, right??
Just keep sewing!

Guess What???!!!???

I'm going to be on TV!!!!  Can you believe it?!?  
I was asked to do a TV spot for The Warm Company, promoting my favorite product - Steam-A-Seam!  We shot video last weekend with an amazing group of people at KS Productions in Solon, Ohio.  
We had a fabulous time!!  Yes, I drug my hubby along to keep me company.
Here I am with Hostess, Susan Burbaker Knapp on set at Quilting Arts.  My segment will air this summer, I don't have a date yet.  More photo's to come.....
Happy Sewing!

Quiltmaker March/April 2014 arrived!

 It's here!!  A brand new great issue.
This bright and cheery Spring table runner is mine and it's on page 66 of this issue!!
The runner finishes 16" x 44"
Yo-Yo flower centers add fun and depth to the quilt.  
Plus hot pink rick rack makes it pop.
 I was able to use a lot of  Spring brights from my stash.  
This is a quick and super easy project of half-square-triangles and fusible web applique.
So what's in your stash that you can use???
Get your issue and start sewing!!!!

Need your vote

I need your help!  Skinnies are in the making and I need your help to decide on the Easter Skinnie for this years release.  I really like both my ideas, but can't make up my mind. 
So, I'm asking you
#1  - One tall chocolate bunny
#2 - Peeps, 3-5 peeps all different bright Spring colors
Just like all the Skinnies, the images would be strip-pieced
Which one would you prefer???
Leave your comment and tell me.
