Paradise Tote

This was both fun and easy to make!

One of my monthly shipments in the Annie's Attic Creative Quilters Fabric Club, this one was by far one of my favorites to make.  The fabrics sent to me are called Paradise Fabric Collection by Art Gallery, and the free pattern that came with it was for this tote.
I started the tote Saturday, December 15th, 2012 and completed it Sunday, December 16th, 2012.

My One Year Anniversary

A year ago today I met my honey, Brian.  We are celebrating this as our anniversary since neither of us can recall the exact date when we considered ourselves in an "official" relationship...LOL!

So here we were in December 2011...

And here we are this year...
(the most recent photo I have of us together is from Sept 2012)

It's been a super fast and fun year...and we are both looking forward to many more to come!

Fabric Stash Quilt Blocks

In an effort to reduce my stash of fabric scraps, I've been busy making quilt blocks...most of which will probably be donated to the Princeton Public Library, Princeton, WI for their Quilt that built a Library fundraiser.  Any blocks donated to this fundraiser need to be 12 inch square blocks, so I am making them all 12 inches square.  I haven't yet decided if I'm donating the whirling pinwheel block yet or was difficult for me to make, so I may want to put it into a quilt or pillow project...time will tell what I decide to do with it...
All the fabrics used in these blocks are leftover from previous projects I've made.  I didn't buy new fabric just to make these blocks.
Here are the blocks I've made so far in the last couple of weeks during my spare time...

The two holiday quilt blocks pictured below are for the Star Pointe Quilters' Guild Christmas Party Quilt Block Drawing, to be held on December 13th...  I recently joined this Guild out of Stevens Point, WI, and this is the first project I've participated in since joining last month.  I look forward to many more projects I can participate in, in the future!
For each quilt block we make & take to the party, we get our name entered into the drawing.  The person whose name gets drawn will win all the completed quilt blocks and pattern instructions for the quilt.  We were given the fabric pieces at our last meeting, so all the quilt blocks have coordinating fabric for the quilt.  I grabbed enough fabric for making these two blocks.
