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.

Welcome to the Day 4 of We Support You Blog hop. I first wanted to thank these two amazing ladies, Mdm Samm for organizing this hop and our wonderful cheerleader for the hop Pat from Line in the Scrapatch continuously cheering us throughout the hop.
This is for a great cause and I made this pillow for my close friend Lillian who was diagnosed with breast cancer few years back. She has been doing a great job fighting it and this is to support her.
I am celebrating 3 year anniversary for my blog and couple of other reasons as well. Here is the link to the giveaway on my blog, click here.

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 :-)
