I have been collecting fabrics for the Dancing starts quilt along and decided on the size of the quilt I will be using. I bet that is a good start right? For the background fabric I'm going to use an ombre effect. First 2 rows is kona ash, then kona medium grey, then kona coal and then finally kona charcoal.
Hmmm....did print 20some blocks and cut 13 of them to form first 2 rows. So, that's my progress for January.
I am really excited about this blog hop. I have been collecting different shades of purple, blues/aquas/greens etc for last couple of years. Finally decided to go with the different shades of purples/magenta.
I was very ambitious, but only got the wall hanging done. Here is my quilt top:
I have used 4 different background colors starting from top: Kona PepperKona CharcoalKona CoalKona Steel
You can't really tell much difference between the Kona Coal and Kona Steel. I did some black/white shots to see the color value and they seemed to be the same. But Steel has a little bit blue tint to it. Kona Coal seem to match the Kona Charcoal for the transition.
My original plan was to make a lap quilt(48x 64inches). I might still continue to make more stars.

I welcome you all to Day1 of Think Ruffles blog hop organized by amazing Mdm Sam @SewWeQuilt and our amazing cheer leader Amy @SewIncrediblyCrazy blog. I wanted to thank both Mdm Sam and Amy for this wonderful blog hop.
Now peak at my project, a ruffled pillow with zipper.
I have been wanting to make ruffles for a while and had one particular pillow in mind, V & Co's white ruffle pillow. I made mine with white Kona Cotton. The strips for the ruffles are 1.5inches. The finished pillow cover is 12"x18".
This time around I even got to add a zipper. Yay for me! I saw this video on zipper and it just made it so much more simpler to add a zipper to any project.
This was a super fun project and I already got another request for ruffles from my daughter, she wants a white skirt for the summer. Exactly same ruffles :-)
Welcome to our 2nd day of a very special blog hop - "Just for the Boys". My project involves a very special little buddy of mine, my son who is 2 yrs old.
A while ago he took over his big sisters doll stroller, now he completely owns it. We slowly take over big sister's stuff....first borrow it and then never return. It becomes ours ;)...LOL.
Here is the picture of the stroller before the make over:
He is very tiny and so sometimes he can make himself comfortable in this toy stroller. He loves puppies and always carries his little puppy & blankie around.
So I decide to make a stroller cover using some of my favorite puppy fabrics - "Spot's Favorite Color". For the back of the stroller I did a wonky modern log cabin block and for the seat I just used a square fabric trimmed to half circle. I quilted in the ditch for both the back and the seat.
Some of my other projects from the past which are oriented towards special boys in my life.
