All These Giveaways!

I got lucky for my first Sew Mama Sew giveaway day! I won some beautiful hand dyed fabric from Malawi courtesy of Forty 20 Four and a $25 Gift Voucher from Skye Reve Fabrics courtesy of Chasing Cottons!


I finally drove to a quilt shop in a city big enough to carry a decent selection of quilting books & picked up Elizabeth Hartman's book that I've been wanting!

Ole Miss/UGA Banner

You've seen those "House Divided" flags, license plates and other stuff, right?

I graduated from Ole Miss (University of Mississippi) and married a graduate of the University of Georgia. I could not find a garden flag with our schools combined, so I ended up buying the two flags above and making my own.  I really wanted to keep the "HOUSE DIVIDED" in the middle, but the letters were more spread out on one flag, so they didn't match up.

Big Mama's Quilt (and my 1st quilt)

I made this lap quilt in 2007 for my great grandmother's 100th birthday.  She was a quilter and always making little sewing and quilting goodies for me and my sister.

I used the Scrappy Bargello tutorial by Bonnie K. Hunter located here.  I pieced and quilted it by machine. 

Quilt Idea

Here's a quilt pattern I just created in Excel...not sure if I'll actually make it or not but it could be cute.
