My Ta Da List!


Posted on November 24th, by Amy in finished quilt, give away. 20 comments

I probably could produce three different posts out with all that I have to say . . .

First up – I finished our tree skirt! I love it :) It is just over 40″ square. After seeing a couple of others a bit smaller around blogland, I thought it may be to big, but why go to the trouble if no one will see it under the tree!
I opted to add a tie to the center – it’s festive :)
And I quilted stars randomly – I had to find a good one – they were not all this happy.

Now I can’t wait to start decorating for Christmas!

Next up – My new loot!

These fat quarters and thread are from the Freespirit giveaway. I have no idea what they will become but they sure are pretty to look at :) On top is Anna Maria Horner’s newest Good Folks. Second is Moondance by Jenean Morrison (she’s pretty funny – check out her new blog!), third is Jay McCarroll’s line Woodland Wonderland, there’s cute trees and little bugs on the pink swirly fabric. And Dena Designs, Snowflower – really cute too! I just found her site/blog now while posting :) I’m realizing that this pic doesn’t show much of the prints . . . maybe I will have to show you more later.

Finally, my last addition to my ta-da’s :) I think I may have an obsession with bookmarks! I couldn’t fall asleep last night for these things. . . more ideas kept popping up.They have raw edges, quilt batting inside, and white flannel or pink polka-dots for backing. For whatever reason these are so fun to make for me! Not sure if these are going to the shop, or maybe gifts. . . just had to make them :)

    Terrific Tree skirt. Believe or not I still do not have one. I really need to make one. I say that every year around this time. Generally too much going on now to start one and complete it before Christmas. Maybe that should be a New Year’s resolution? I love the fabrics that you won…. simply gorgeous. And boy you were cranking out those lovely bookmarks. They are fantastic!

    Beautiful tree skirt! I just finished mine today-how funny is that!:) I love the fabric you won, it would play nicely with the fabric I just bought. I love your bookmarks. When I first looked at it, I thought it was an abstract quilt. I love how the squares all look laid out like that-wouldn’t it make a neat mini quilt?

    OhMyGosh Amy! I missed your tree skirt while I was gone! It’s BEAUTIFUL — I LOVE it! And it’s definitely not too big — you never know when you might want a bigger tree and now you’ll be all ready LOL. I love a square tree skirt too! Excellent Job!!!!
