Flowahbella & a Flower Quilt

Ahhhhhhhhhhh! These Bella stamps are too dern cute! OMG! I made this little thing for a Bella Swap on SCS. I wish I had more of that flower paper, but I can't remember where I got it from. Oh well. I had fun coloring her with my Copic markers. I also really enjoy reading about how great Copics are on the Copic blog.

Anyway ... I have been sewing up a storm today. I have 4 more orders ready to ship tomorrow and am in the middle of several more that I should be able to finish and ship tomorrow as well. I love moving my order forms from the "In Progress" to the "Completed" section of my notebook. I still have like 27 orders to go ... gasp! At least I am not "working" :-)

Several people have commissioned baby quilts, which I am really excited about. Although, one is for a little girl whose parents aren't into pinking her out! I am going to have to work hard to make a girl's quilt with no pink or purple! My fabric collection is like 50% pink! haha

Speaking of quilts, I don't think I have had the chance to post the Flower quilt that my mom and I made for the philantrophy raffle at convention. Well ... here it is!

It is pretty neat, because it is made of all the "omega holes" from the letter shirts I've made for people. My mom pieced the quilt and I did the free motion quilting and the binding. I know the winner was super excited - I think she put like 20 or 30 tickets in for that thing! :-)

Here's a closer look at the flowers. I think if you click on the pictures you can see the full size image and check them out in more detail. Unfortunately, these photos are a little dark, but you get the general idea!

The quilt's name is "Blooming for a Cure 2008" ... we plan to make another one for next year's convention. Lord knows I still have a million omega holes. I am thinking black & white prints and pink next time!

Happy Tuesday y'all!
