I made some tissue box covers for Mother's Day presents. I got the idea fter reading this post. I used what I had on hand. Great tip was to use hair ties for the elastic. There are lots of colours available which allows you to colour co-ordinate (if you want). The blue one in the middle in all mine. I decided it was time to pretty up my desk at work a bit. It is from some very precious Tanya Whelan fabric. I slightly messed up the measurements but refuse to dwell on it.
I have been inspired by lots of posts to try and get some old(er) projects completed. I bought a kit for a simple cot quilt when I was pregnant with my son. I didn't know I was having a boy when I bought it though. Well my son is 4 1/2 and I finally have it done. Many thanks to Jacquie at Tallgrass Prairie Studios who inspired me to try a more organic quilt design. Love the freedom it gave me. I used no measurements/lines whatsoever. How liberating! Definitely going to do this again. Quilt top fabrics are all Moda.
I have finally caught up with my Jelly Roll Sampler blocks. I love this quilt along!!!Love this block too. This is block 6 and we were encouraged to select a novelty print for the centre square. Fantastic touch!
The next one is Block 7. If you want to join in you can start any time. There are also prizes every couple of weeks. See the link in my side bar if you are interested.
