Fabric Tuesday Part 2

Welcome to Fabric Tuesday!

I hope you've come with some projects to share, but if not look around and see what you like!
On fabric Tuesday we share some project we have finished that uses fabric.

I finished the quilt top for my room!

It's a combination of traditional and modern piecing with modern fabrics and layout.

Thanks to my cute friend Ashlie for her beautiful home as a backdrop!

And a little close-up.


And even better, this afternoon I sent it off with our fabulous Aunt Wendy to be magically quilted.
Don't you all wish you had an aunt Wendy?!?
I will definitely be posting more when it's finished.

On to...
Fresh Poppy Design
edit: the button should now be working!
HOW TO PLAY

Link up a recent craft project that uses fabric.

Mention us in your post with either a link or make it easy and add the button to your blog sidebar and you won't have to remember each week.
It can be either our blog button (on the sidebar) or the Fabric Tuesday button, you pick!
Follow us, we follow back :) But please comment telling us you did so!

And, ya know, (head down to the ground, sliding my toes across the ground, small voice) I guess if you like my quilt top you could comment and tell me so... :)

Oh and comment on each other, that's so much more fun right??


Your link can be quilts, clothing, pillows, etc..  I thought I'd share a really cute and creative example of what your project can be too. ie, it doesn't have to be sewn


This is my friend Ashlie's wall, and she used all these different frames and cute fabrics.  I L-O-V-E it!

Your turn!

Flying Geese are one of my favorite blocks, so many layout possible.
And YES, I would definitively have an aunt Wendy to quilt my top....

That quilt top is really beautiful - I'll have to share it with my mom because she has this thing for flying geese - she's obsessed! :)

Love the quilt top! Yes, I wish I had a magical Wendy too bz it takes me about six months to get back quilt tops. I love the orange you used in it. Orange and peach are my favorite colors but it's so hard to find a good piece of orange around here. Love it!

Lucky for me, I have a magical Aunt Stephanie! :)

I went to add your button to my sidebar, and the code is all weird. I scrolled down to a previous post and it was fine. But I just wanted to let you know. :)

I love your quilt top! So pretty! I am still afraid to try triangles, but I hope to be more confident in other shapes someday. :)

The quilt is beautiful! I am trying to plan a modern quilt with traditional fabrics, and am not sure it is going to work. I am glad yours did, it gives me hope!
