I've never made a quilt so fast in my life (and probably never will again). It turned out awesome, but man was it stressful.

  124. Most recent finish was a quilt block using 100 2" squares. I'm calling it a finish even though it was only ONE block because it had 100 FREAKING SQUARES in it. WOW. Quilter's Grid is magical.

  127. My recent finish was a calendar quilt that was supposed to be a small 8"X10" wall hanging. My daughter wanted it as a lap-sized quilt, so I had to enlarge the monthly calendar blocks and put sashings and three borders on it to make it lap-sized. I had taken ONE paper-piece class and HATED it, so it was truly a work of love to make this quilt for my daughter. But I must say, it got me out of my comfort zone, and I was extremely thrilled with the finished product. To see it, go here (this is the quilter's website): http://debraspincicdesignstudio.blogspot.com/2011/04/adorable-calendar-quilt.html

  128. My most recent project is a duct tape dress form. I love it and it turned out perfectly my size.

    ReplyDelete
  130. I don't have anything clever to say, I just have an obsession with fabric, and this pattern could help me use some of it!

    ReplyDelete
  131. Great giveaway. The Single Girl pattern has been on my wishlist. My most recent finish is a red and black quilt for my stepdad, backed with University of Utah fabric (where he went, not where I went). I would love Single Girl to be my next quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  132. I've never attempted a quilt before, I could try that one out someday if I win this :)
    Today I made fabric art - I had this ugly canvas of a princess crown (I still don't understand why I got it in the first place) and covered it with a cute fabric that I have, it isn't really for clothes but I though it'd look good as art :)

    thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  133. I've seen this pattern before and was very interested. Thanks for the chance to win this! My most recent finish was a bag that I am giving away for the SMS giveaway. Here's my blog http://www.anotherfabricaddict.blogspot.com/
