I won this amazing book from Lissa at Moda Lissa.  It has wonderful, easy quilt projects with simple designs.  They are eye-catching and bright.  I am so excited to start some of these projects!

Thank you so much, Lissa.  I Love It!!!!

Happy Quilting,

Bowls with Borders Blog Hop!

In August I will be participating in my first-ever blog hop as a hoppee rather than a hopper.  I am excited and nervous all at the same time.  It will be the Bowls with Borders Blog Hop.  Stay tuned for more information!!!!

I a couple of weeks I will be closing down this blog and moving completely over to my new one.  I have begun a new blog called fabric-ating.  I have posted all my previous posts from this blog over there and will be blogging in both places for the time being.

But....I would love for anyone who is interested in following me, to hop on over to fabric-ating and follow me there.  Anyone who decides to follow me at fabric-ating (current or new followers of either blog) will be in a drawing just before I close this blog.  And.....I will be part of a blog hop in August.

Happy Quilting,

Laura ;)

Loving the Zakka!

The Zakka Style Sew-Along has been so much fun. I love that the projects are modern and easy. This week's projectvwent to my daughter as part of her gift for graduating from college. Instead of a pencil case, she will use it as a glasses case. This is how this week's project turned out...


And I made a matching camera case for the new digital camera we gave her. Love it, too.

Week Four of the Zakka Style Sew Along

This sew along has been so much fun.  Cute little easy-to-do projects.  This week's project is an adorable little sewing kit.  Here is mine. 

All it needs is a few supplies and it is good to go!

Zakka Sew Along - 2

I had fun with this project, too.  The little house pouch was so simple and fun to be creative with.  Here is what I made:


And the entire project was made with scraps.  The body was from my grandmother's stash.  Even the zipper was recycled.  I was a zipper that I got from my grandmother's stash.

Modern Mini Challenge

Have you heard about the Modern Mini Challenge at Ellison Lane Quilts?  It has been lots of fun to see all the inspiration quilts.  I am also in Doll Quilt Swap 12 (DQS12).  I decided to enter my DQS12 quilt in the Modern Mini Challenge.  Here it is...


I am very happy with the way this turned out.

Another Year of Schnibbles -- WINNER!!

If you love making little mini quilts, then "Another Year of Schnibbles" is for you.  There is a link on my sidebar.  Each month you make your version of a particular pattern and email yours to be included in a parade.  (and there are PRIZES!!!)  Well, I won something. 

Not 1, but 2 charmpacks of Dogwood Trail by Moda.  I am so excited!!  I love this line and I didn't have any of it yet.  (I am thinking one of my Schnibbles will be made from these in the near future....)  These were sent to me from Donna at Bear Paw Quilts & More and she threw in the cute nail file also. 

Thank you so much, Donna, for my great treats.  Thank you also to Sherri and Sinta for hosting "Another Year of Schnibbles", and for choosing me for prizes this month.
