My husband and sister painting away! (Forgive the lousy IPhone photos!)

We went for lots of bold color and we’re super happy with the results.

And now – this is what I’m living in.

Time to get unpacking! Of course you know my sewing room is already partly good to go! Will do a whole post on that a later… Hope you all have wonderful weekends!

Adorable mini Bonne Maman jars.

We all love Bonne Maman jars. But have you seen these teeny tiny ones before??  A hotel I was at recently had ‘em.  Now I don’t THINK you’re supposed to take…oh… six or so… but I did.  I couldn’t help it.

I love them. Love. But I’m at a loss as to what I can do with them. They make me wish I had a bead collection. Are you allowed to start a collection purely because you already have something to hold it in??

They are just so… little! And wonderful! Anyone have suggestions what I could use them for?

Thanks for all your mini quilts comments.  They are a great time, right??

Getting down to business… the ol’ random number generator picked…

#32: Megan!

Who said “What a great little book! I’ve been thinking about doing some mini-quilts lately for just those reasons you mention: you can try out new techniques and ideas without the major commitment of a full-size quilt. Plus, it’s a great way to use up scraps (not that I have any of those lying around).”

Congrats Megan!!  Keep any eye out for an email from me…

Catching up

On Friday my job ended and so I’m back to having much more time to sew! Needless to say, I’m happy about it. I took the weekend to catch up on some things including one of the bees I’m in, Bee Imaginative.

Some drunk love style blocks for Ashley.

And some flying geese for Amanda!

I paper pieced these… not something that I’ve done a lot of, and it limits creativity, but it was fun to tackle. I used this pattern.

Check back here tomorrow as I’ll be part of the Whip Up Mini Quilt book blog tour. As luck would have it – we’re having a mini quilt swap tonight at our LA Modern Quilt Guild meeting.  Tomorrow’s post will be all mini quilts all the time!
