Our quilting class is going well. We all pretty much got our squares together this past week. Everyone's quilts are looking so pretty!
Vicki is continuing with her sampler quilt which is so neat and pretty!
Melissa is figuring out where each piece should go so as not to get any repeats.
Mia is sewing madly. Her mother was a quilter and it would have been her birthday last Thursday so we had fun reminiscing about her mom's many quilts.
Here is mine sewn together. I just love how it came out. I need to put a border around it and the batting and backing. This will be the next class.
In the meantime, I have started a second quilt called the "Disappearing Nine Patch". I will be doing this as a 'quilt as you go' method.
You quilt each square separately and then sew them together. Here is my first square!
Here is my kitty assistant who seems to be praying over my work!
Here is another project that I did this week. A magnetic makeup board. Super fun idea and I love how it turned out!! Here is the link for the how to: http://laurathoughts81.blogspot.com/2011/03/make-up-magnet-board.html
I also made this mason jar storage board for my bathroom as well. Here is the link for that one: http://lovelylittledetails.com/2011/03/13/mason-jar-sunday-diy-mason-storage-from-liz-marie-3/
Here I tweaked the above one a bit for the kitchen.
And here is my microwave cart repurposed into an island for the kitchen. I basically built a base for it. Next step will be to tile the top! I am also thinking of adding some book shelves to one end for my cookbooks. Please excuse the floor as it is in the process of tile preparation!
