projects...

Lots of projects going on around here... :o) I am helping a friend make some items for her to sell at craft fairs - I will end up putting some on my online site, too... :o) These are coin purses. They just need the little clasps put on. They even have a loop to hook onto a key chain... Lots more of these to make, and checkbook covers and day planner covers, and... :o) These are done up on the embroidery machine, so go together pretty quickly.

I was talking to Lisa at Lydia's Treasures about the *Sent With Love* fabric line, and thought I would show the two projects I have going with those fabrics... These are 1/2" hexagons, using the Honey Bun (1-1/2" strips). I had the girls cut all the strips of the Honey Bun into squares, just however many each strip would make, and then I am just going to make this as big as it gets, probably some sort of wall-hanging... Believe it or not, this little pile is about 55 hexagons! (Hardly a dent in the pile of squares that the girls cut!) I am kind of anxious to get them done, so I can see how big it does turn out!
And I am also using the *Sent With Love* fabric line for these blocks - these use a charm pack and a Jelly Roll. The pattern is called Scrappy Trails Quilt. You can find the pattern at the Quiltville Etsy Shop. Easy, easy blocks to make! As you can tell, I love these fabrics!

And last but not least, I am taking the plunge, and I am going to make a Dear Jane quilt! Ok, but not just one Dear Jane quilt, I have decided to make TWO! :o))) One will be in small dainty pink floral/prints. The other is going to be 1800s repros, in red-white-blue colors... :o)

As soon as I get my fabrics and start on the blocks, I am going to have a blog just to track my progress on my Dear JaneS! :o)

Hope you are having a good day! Thanks for stopping by!
