MMMRR Reveal Day!

 Modern Mini Mystery Round Robin Quilt Reveal Day!!!  WOOHOO!!

I am so excited! I will put a better picture up later, but I forgot to get a good one while the sun was shining!  Oopsie.  I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE all the work everyone put into my quilt. 
I started with a small 6.5 inch square, you can see it off center, the pink, white and grey block.  Everyone who got it for a turn then made a border, intricate or simple, and passed it onto the next person.  I had so much fun doing this, I'd love to do it again.

Now the hard part - what do I do with it? Do I leave it a mini and hang it up and enjoy it, or make it a quilt and snuggle and enjoy it?  Any opinions? 

Thanks for stopping by!

Chain Piecing Meet Mini Quilt

The results of my chain piecing from the other night.  A mini quilt basted and ready to quilt! EEK!!

Love the border focal fabric

My points aren't perfect, buy hey, I'm just excited I am working on things and getting things finished.  I did just get a new 1/4 inch foot, and it's taking some getting used to.  Figured I'd work on something for myself before I made bee blocks for the month! :X
Isn't it cute? It's tiny :O  About 20 inches long.

So much to do!

I am working on Christmas gifts - which means I don't have a lot I CAN show you, because it's a surprise! And I know at least one of the people read this blog >.>  So for now, no pictures.  Just a note to say hi, and ask your opinions!  I am quilting a top, Christmas fabrics, and wondering if I should buy quilters paper and draw holly and ivy berries on it, so I can quilt that, or should just free motion meander it.  Should I be adventurous?  Let me know what you think! :D

Tomorrow I have a craft show.  The biggest one we've (my SIL and I) done to date.  I'm getting nervous! I have been sewing and sewing some cute new things to sell, so haven't been working on anything "quilt" wise.  Mostly small crafty things to sell.  Although - I have a baby quilt planned out I think I will try and sew for the next craft show in 2 weeks.

No pictures today, sorry!, but will have some next time.  Hopefully I'll have a cute quilt finish to show you soon ;)
