Fabric Tuesday number 20! Fun fun fun!

Hi all, First and foremost make sure to check out yesterdays post about the Quiltstory block party. Fun contest we are hosting with hundreds of dollars in prizes!!!

 A couple weeks I showed you this gorgeous pile from Aunt Bea's Fabric...here is my work in progress...




I cut them into 10" squares, and added a 6" border. 


Then I am rechopping it up again with my Twister tool... like this post...


 I should have it finished in a week or so to show you the final quilt. It is getting gorgeous!

I forgot to show you all this finish...I made this runner for my sister Amy. She loves pastel babyish colors (who doesn't) so I made her a Christmas runner in the cute pastel colors she loves...

 I tried straight line quilting for the first time, super fun! I can't wait to do that again!

Alright, your turn...

FABRIC TUESDAY
Edition 20
Link up a recent craft project that uses fabric...if you're new don't be shy!  This is for everyone.  Click the button to add your link at the bottom and link up a recent blog post where you used fabric to create or enhance something. Below are a few "rules" to play.

Mention us in your post with either a link or make it easy and add the button to your blog sidebar and you won't have to remember each week. ***You can take either our blog or our Fabric Tuesday buttons on the sidebar.***

You don't have to do this to link up, promise. However if you want to follow us, we follow back :) But please comment telling us you did so and we will hop right on over and make sure we're following too!

And how about we each take time to comment on the link just before yours, that's easy enough right? We'd love for this to be a linky party where everyone gets comments, so if you take the time to look, take a second to leave a comment!


Let's see those fabric creations!

i like the quilt like that, even (just the squares!) but i'm lazy so i probably wouldn't chop it up once i sewed it together. that twisty tool looks like fun though.

i'm so late linking up ... oh well!
