I showed you the super teacup filled with my quilt kit. I can think of fun things to display in this teacup.This is a picture of the quilt the kit makes. Vintage story book pages by Red Rooster fabric. So cute. I am not big on prairie points and I'm not really going to make my quilt exactly like this but I love the images of the kids.
Here is the fabric from the kit and it was in this little red pail. Heaven only knows when I'll find time to make it but I'm sure it will go fast.
Lynette put in an oilcloth bag from her store into the kit as a little gift to me. Thanks Lynette. I love bags. Don't you? If you go to southern Utah, visit Lynette at her Main St. Quilt Cottage in Hurricane. Tell her hi for me. Oh and I know why they call it Hurricane. It is always windy there. But most of the time a breeze is welcome in the hot weather.
I bought these fabrics at Lynette's shop. Three reproduction fat quarters and this Red Rooster fabric I've been spying.
I also bought 4 fat quarters at Quilt Works. These will work in nicely in my Alpine Group Sampler Quilt we are working on all year. Turquoise and red are my theme colors.Nedra and I both bought a yard of this circle fabric at Quilt Works. Nedra gave me a coupon for it too. So I got 30% off. You can't beat that. As soon as I saw this fabric I thought it would make great covered buttons. I include covered buttons in one of my patterns/kits. I cut around the circle with a little to spare and then lined the button with a little square of white fabric. This way you can't see the shiny metal through the fabric.Covered buttons are really easy to make. I've gotten them in bulk from several sources. You can get them here.
I have jars of buttons on my sewing room shelves. Some ready to cover and some all covered ready to use.
I can remember my mom making covered buttons to use in projects like suits and jackets. In the 60s they were quite popular. But they really never go out of style. I like how these buttons turned out.I'm super proud my dish cloth tutorial made it to Whip Up and One Pretty Thing. If you don't follow these blogs already, add them to your google reader. They are filled with fun projects and ideas.
Have a great weekend. Weather is heating up everywhere. Yayy Sunshine!
