Or dis? or dis?

My now 13 yo used to ask this when she couldn't decide between two different things. I love her! Now I'm in a quandary. I just can't decide which color scheme I like better for the doll quilt I'm making for DQS8. I'm planning on doing a miniature version of my Merry Go Round quilt, if that helps. What do you think? I wish I could show you my partners flickr faves, but it really needs to remain secret. Suffice it to say, I think both would fit her style. I hope....

The Sleep-Over Quilt

I was pretty excited when my LQS asked me to start sewing some samples for the store! I don't get paid or anything, but I do get free fabric and a pattern and I get to keep the finished project when she's done displaying it.

Here is my first project. It's called the Sleep-Over Quilt and it's a simple project to put together. It's basically 24 layer cake squares, sewn together, quilted and bound. Then some pockets are added to the outside. The quilt folds into the large pocket and the two smaller ones are to tuck in a toothbrush, pj's and any thing else you might need for a sleep over.
And here's the pattern. Easy Peasy, great directions. I would make the handles a bit longer next time, though.

Another Christmas Party!??

Yep, one more to go. This one is actually a re-schedule from mid-December. We were hit with a snow storm and had to cancel our 3rd Annual quilting group get-together. There was NO WAY we could squeeze it into December, so January it is!

We each had a challenge to use a specific FQ, in this case it's the holly berry, and make a gift for someone. You can use as little or as much of the fabric as we choose. (One year, I used just 1 sq. inch! )

Here is my gift this year. A hot pad, a tea towel and a White Chocolate Scone Mix in a fabric bag. I sure hope one of my quilting friends loves it!

Projects 2009

Projects 2009, originally uploaded by myittybittyquilts.

I thought I'd share some of my favorite quilts from 2009. I just had to throw in my Amy Butler Weekender in there because it was so much work and I LOVE to use it. I'm so glad I took the time to make it :)
