More Blog Inspiration

I recently won a great give-away from Terri over at Purple and Paisley. For her birthday give-away she had many give-aways...and the prizes came from the Etsy shops of fellow bloggers! I was able to win the greatest little "Quilting Queen" sign which now officially gives me the title I've always wanted--lol! I also won one of Nanette's patterns...her Mixed Bag to Quilt pattern along with the delightful fabrics, ric-rac and covered button to make it! Nanette's fabrics are WONDERFUL! I'm torn between making the bag right away OR framing the fabrics she sent...making the bag out of some others. What am I going to do? The fabrics are art in and of themselves!
More blog inspiration came this past week from Camille...I had to make her simple table runner that she shared on the new Moda Bakeshop blog! I had a charm pack of "Oh Cherry-Oh!" and added just a few squares from my stash to piece this little runner.

I can't wait to quilt this and get it on the table!
Happy Sewing!

I agree about framing Nanette's fabrics! I purchased her bag kit but have not made it yet. I just love looking at the fabrics.

Love your version of Camille's tablerunner. So springy!

oh yayyy!!!
i think you should frame nanette's fabrics!!!
{if you go to camille's blog and go back to around christmas, look at the framed pic her mom gave her. it's mostly selvedge, but that's what i thought of when you said frame nanette's fabric.}

and yayyy you made the runner.

i wanna make it too, but i'm not sure what fabrics to use.
