A cellphone case for a friend

My "prototype" cellphone case will be getting a new home with a dear friend. I made two when I made mine, the first one was unfortunately too small, forcing me to make a second, larger one to accommodate my big phone. The prototype is however the perfect iphone size so it'll hopfully be great for my friends phone. It's a bit daintier then mine and I actually really like this first version better, but what to do when your phone is to fat? ^^

And since she's just as crazy about frogs as Anki is, I couldn't help but use up a small amount of my adorable frog fabric from my previous post for her. I'll show you what I made with it after she receives it, as I want it to be a little surprise and I can't be sure she wouldn't see it here ^^


I also received an email from Jennifer the other day who had made a Charming Rag Quilt using my Moda Bakeshop Tutorial. Isn't it just lovely! Love how manly it looks while at the same time looking so snuggly! She used  3 King of the Ranch charm packs, a Texas panel and some various western fabrics she had at home to give her a total of 168 squares.

Thank you so very much Jennifer for sharing your beautiful creation with me! <3

Beautiful Gifts & Summer Squares

I just want to start out by saying that I'm so lucky to have so many wonderful people in my life!

When I was at the quilt retreat this summer, I fell in love with some adorable fabric Anki was sewing equally adorable things with, really cute frogs (she loves frogs!) and beautiful matching fabrics. And when she'd finished up her things she was making with it, she gave what she had left of all the fabrics to me! I was so happy! I can totally see all the cute little baggies I'll be making from these! Thank you so very much Anki! <3 There where a lot more then what can be seen in the pic.

On the same note my beloved mother (who is much to generous for her own good) saw me swooning over her Puttin' on the Ritz jelly roll, as I had no idea what pretty, non childish fabrics this collection contained! Such stunning fabrics. And she gifted it to me! I can't stop looking at it, I know I want to make something stylish for the living room with it, I just don't know exactly what yet ^^
Thank you so very much mom, you know how much I love you! <3


A couple of days ago I also received  an email from Tina Leahy who had made her own, stunning version of my Summer Squares Quilt from the tutorial found on Moda Bakeshop. Isn't it stunning? I love what she did with the little thin green border to frame it all before adding the big border to give it a more usable size, she shared with me that she got the idea from Sew'n Wild Oaks Blog.

Thank you so very much for sharing your beautiful creation with me Tina!

Revisiting Cubes Revisted ^^

I'm competing in this weeks Quilting Gallery contest under the theme Modern Geometric with my Cubes Revisited Wall Hanging. You can read a bit more about it and see some additional photos in the original post.

I'd like to ask you all to hop over there and vote for the ones you feel deserve to win. You get three votes this week so I'm hoping of course that my little quilt (it's actually little, only 19,5" square) will stand up to the incredibly fierce competition and maybe get one of your votes ^^
