Film Strip Table Runner...Tutorial Info...

I made a table runner from one film strip section.

It turned out great.

I love it. It's my new favorite! And is now available in my shop.

***Okay so instead of posting a tutorial directly on the blog, I made a PDF file. It was pretty fun. Making a PDF is something I have wanted to do for quite a while. So what I'm going to do is send you the link for the tutorial if you want it. Just send me in e-mail or leave a comment and I'll get back to you. My purpose for doing it this way is, I'm only going to offer it for free for a short time. I intend on putting it in my shop and ALL of the money I make from the sale of the pattern will be given to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. A cause that is dear to me. If you are a person who gives charitable donations please consider St. Jude.***

Yesterday Vic from The Silly BooDilly and I met up for breakfast. It was so much fun. We talked, and talked, and. talked. And laughed. She is one of the sweetest persons/people I have met. She is crazy talented. She oozes inspiration and I am very blessed to be able to call her a friend. It was a great time. Can you believe they started vacuuming , Vic? I think that's hilarious. How long can you talk quilts? That's what my husband wants to know.

It's Almost Finished...

I'm so excited and completely floored by the response to my Filmstrip Quilt through the blog, e-mail and Flicker. I am proof reading everything now and am making a PDF so that it is easy to download.

I have completed one quilt. I'd like to finish the quilt from the original three filmstrip sections before I post the tutorial. Either way I'll have it ready soon. ☺

On a side note, my picture of the sketchy birdie family was on Flicker's Explore page of interesting things. Another flicker'er let me know. I wasn't familiar with this feature but apparently it's a pretty neat thing. I thought that was pretty cool. So toot, toot. That was my own horn by the way.

Love Birds

Just one more....

before the Film Strip Tutorial. I'm still drafting that and should be finished shortly. But I had to show these cute little love birds.

It's Sketchy!

I have been wanting to try sketchy free motion applique for so long now. I first saw it here. I needed to make something that I could finish the same day. So I decided to cut into some precious scraps of Flea Market Fancy that Kristine so sweetly gave to me. I made this mini with them. I got big oooh's and ahhh's and "I love it"'s, so that was good.

I then went on to make this little birdie family.

And here is case for an I Pod Touch. This is the front. It's a bit wonky, I was sewing it at 2 am with out a plan, just cutting and sewing. So that happens sometimes.

This is the back. I quilted it with swirls. Can't really see it in the picture though.

A matching sun glasses case. (front)

and back. They have been getting good use since I made them. That's why they don't look nice and crisp. I'm glad!

So go give it a try. It's loads of fun. Betcha can't make just one!

* filmstrip tutorial coming...this week I hope*
