My to do list

This weekend I mainly worked on my "Opposite attract" Bog hop :) Those are getting addictive!!! I can't show pictures (come back on June 7th to see it)

I also worked on my pin cushion exchange organised by  Bea at http://www.beaquilter.com/
I stole ....humm I mean got inspired by Amanda Jean pincushinon at Crazy mom quilts



Those triangles are tiny!!!! the whole cushion is 4" but I love the results.....I might do a few ones for myself.

I also worked on my orange peel quilt. I had many questions about my newspaper fabric :) Yes it is fabric. I love any fabric with writing on it.

Here is the blocks done....I tried to put it down nicely but my kitties had other ideas....so here is a puddle of blocks LOL



I am almost ready to start quilting my little prince quilt. I just have to finish writing the quote....it just take time since I have to improvise a light box by putting my cell phone (with the light flash on) in a plastic box to trace the letters.

  1. Oh goodness that pin cushion is cute! With triangles that small, did you paper piece it? Love the other projects too - absolutely agree, fabric with writing on rocks! :D

  2. I would love to see your light box. Your phone in a plastic box??? That's awesomely creative! The pincushion is so cute. Amanda Jean's is quite the inspiration isn't she?

  4. Love your pincushion and orange peel on text print. I finally bought an inexpensive light box at Michael's with a coupon because they charge way too much for these! I think I paid about $30 in the end.

  5. a cute pin cushion and the text fabric looks good not seen any text around but think I need to keep my open. Very ingenuous using your light for the tracing, I have a light box which is so useful for tracing. Before I got it I used to stick the picture onto the window

  7. Love the pincushion - so tiny!!! And the script on the fabric! Stunning! Can you please tell me what you use to write on the fabric? Really nice! I have heard of the cell phone DIY light box but haven't done it yet! I usually tape my applique patterns on a window and trace from there! One day, I'm sure I'll invest in a light box!!

  10. I too love your newsprint fabric and your creativity with making your own light box!

    I can't wait to see what you do with the script. I have been wanting to work with text on a textile project, I simply haven't figured out what. (Text-ile will be its name!)

    Thanks for posting to TN&TN's WIP Wednesday!

  12. I love making pincushions - they are such a quick (usually) project to finish and that satisfies my need to create on days when I have just a little time. Text fabric is fun to use and is always so interesting in a quilt! Thanks for sharing your great projects on MCM!
