Next Project & Another Patchwork Pillow

This is the next project I'll be working on.  It's for my niece's birthday that is coming up in just a couple of weeks.  She has two American Girl Dolls, so she and one of her dolls are getting matching dresses.  It's the Kyoko and Mini Kyoko by ModKid.  The fabrics are "Good Folks" by Anna Maria Horner, "Midwest Modern" by Amy Butler, "Hope Valley" by Denyse Schmidt.  I'm so excited to see them done.  I'll definitely post my progress and pics of the finished dresses.  I see more of these little dresses in my future.  One for each of my granddaughters.  They are just too cute.
 And I finished another pillow using the Star Puzzle block mentioned here.  This one is created out of fabrics I already you know what that means????  Remember "The Challenge" my husband issued at the first of the year?  Well, this pillow qualifies for item number two in the category of "other fabric projects".  Yeah!  I know, I know I better get busy if I'm going to meet that deadline.  And let me say this, it will be no fun at my house if I fail to meet the deadline.  He will rub it in forever if I don't get these projects done.  Not, in a mean way, but he will tease me ruthlessly.  So, I must stay on track.

We had a meeting this afternoon of the Board of Directors for the Dallas Modern Quilt Guild.  It was a fun productive meeting and I am really excited about this guild.  If you haven't heard about it yet, you can read all about it here.  I think we are all going to have so much fun.


  1. Hi Michelle! It was SO nice to meet you this afternoon :) Your website is fabulous. I love, love, love Ana Maria Horner.

  2. Thanks Jenny! I enjoyed meeting you too and I think you have a pretty spiffy website yourself. Congrats on the Moda Bake Shop. LOVE that ironing board cover!

  3. Wait?! It seems like you've made more than the 2 projects since your husband challenged you! Are you sure?! DO NOT LET HIM WIN! :)

    Your pillows are perty!!!

  4. Well, the reason that I am only counting two of my projects toward the challenge is that part of the rules are that the projects all have to come from my current "stash" of fabric and quilt kits. Most of what I have posted about here are things that have been commissioned, so I bought new fabric for them, resulting in a disqualification of the rules! You know GK.....
