Finishing and Focusing

>> Monday, January 24, 2011

My Design Wall this week has these 6 cupcakes up for my niece's birthday present.
I'm challenging myself to make my nieces and nephew birthday gifts that incorporate their age this year.
The cupcake is a free pattern from Stephanie at Loft Creations that I couldn't resist using as soon as I saw it.

I think I'm going to make it a pillowcase. I have lots of the pink with small polka dots {thanks, sis!} to use on the back, or I might cut strips from several of the fabrics for the back.

This morning I also finished up two more blocks for January's Block Lotto.

I also made another Lady of the Lake block. It's been officially decided around here that I need to add another row of blocks - 20 blocks. A few ladies from Pat Sloan's Quilt Mashup Forum have generously offered to make some for me. Thank You!!!
This quilt will be queen sized and on my bed for July when we celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary! Here's a link to how much I had done before out anniversary LAST year!!!

That's after I finish my String Quilt and my Sew Modern Bee quilt. I'm trying to finish some quilts this year - wish me luck:)

Check out some more design walls for inspiration through the links at Judy's blog today.

With Joy,
Sarah Vee

What a totally cute idea for a birthday gift! She'll love it for sure, I know my girls would have :) Great block work going on there in your sewing room, keep it up!

The cupcakes are great. Love the modern churn dash. That really speaks to me.
