sewmamasew giveaway winners and today's creative goodness

congratulations to debbie, lynn and trish who have each won a happy town mugmat...please check your email and send your address. thanks to everyone for visiting and to sewmamasew for organizing the giveaway...this was my first one and i was impressed with the 147 comments i received !!!

i spent today in a very busy way....a little bit of stairs...a little bit of costco...a little bit of customer quilting and then a little bit of fun sewing for christmas... making more of these sweet houses .....
then finishing up 5 sewing kits for some special girls i know and finally  piecing this easy peasy sounder's quilt...a christmas gift idea i got at the last sounder's soccer game i went to...

started by making these sweet little pin cushions

then i found some cute boxes at ross and tj max
 i bought some sewing goodies but i also was able to use  a lot of fun extras i had in my sewing room 


i got this idea when livi told me that she is the sew go to girl at college because i gave her a little $3.99 sewing kit with her graduation quilt....so somehow i turned this idea into gifts for 5 college girls....i am so happy that they will all have  real sewing kits now....


so easy and there is enough to make 2 quilts....i bought 3 - 2 yard cuts ....cut them in half length wise....sewed the 3 lengths  together making it approximately 65" x 72" i will be machine quilting it this weekend with a flannel back...i used kona black, regata and green tea


this is where my inspiration came from.....we have some good friends that are absolute sounder's fans....they are going to looovvve this quilt !!!
happy weekend to all....hope everyone's christmas preparations are going smoothly....and you are enjoying this holiday season....i know i am trying my best to  NOT get grumpy....as always i am trying to fit too much in  and i am so looking forward to some down time,,,,,xoxoxo pam

testing testing 123 jenny's quick curve ruler...

i finished the quilt i made w one of jenny's many patterns that use the quick curve ruler...i love the pattern and ruler and found the technique super easy....good job jenny !
i am really going to enjoy seeing what other quilters come up with ....AND seeing jenny's success , she has been working on this for a long while and i think she is almost ready...

the only thing i struggled w was my fabric choices....jenny's pattern was done w solids and i love it...want to do another one...this is a very quick and easy method...

i heart dave hudson's packer weave panto...and i heart double batting.....thanks jenny !

now that it is complete i love the fabric choices....

complete w binding and orange flannel back....this could be a sweet little baby girl quilt...love the gray, blue, orange combo...

i hope to see jenny  tomorrow to show off this quilt ...looking forward to seeing LOTS more of  the results from jenny's quick curve ruler...  xoxo pam
