Giveaway over at Mid-Ohio Quilter

Mid-Ohio Quilter is having a giveaway over at her site. She wants to know what you would like to see at the Moda Bakeshop.

My comment was: How about a softie out of a layer cake? Maybe a bird? Or since Christmas fabric is coming out it could be a dove softie Christmas ornament made with a charm pack or layer cake.

I have it in my mind. Glace by 3 Sisters, with wings attached by buttons. Maybe even finding some sort of olive branch sprig in the floral dept. to attach by hand to a felt beak.

Hey, since I've got a vision, maybe I should try my hand at a tutorial!

Surfin all day, surfin all night

Ok, so admittedly I have been living overseas and should be taking in all the sights and sounds, really living it up. The reality is that Ella is happier with regular and lengthy naps, of somewhat unpredictable timing. I find myself on the internet all the time when she sleeps. I'm entering burnout (and my wallet can't handle anymore fabric purchases online) but I have found a couple neat things.

How awesome are these iron ons? Iron Me On and Sukie Iron Ons, available from Chronicle Books.

I've also been updating a very informal and by no means comprehensive list of tutorials I have noticed and want to keep in mind. It's in my side bar.

Ric rac binding--how cute!

I just found this tutorial on making a ric rac binding, and thought I'd share. Neat idea!

Stop, Drop and Roll

Yeah! (big grin) I won, I won, I won! (little happy dance)

I won a copy of Heather Mulder Peterson's Stop, Drop and Roll. I haven't played around yet with jelly rolls so this will be a great starting point. She says it is also fat quarter friendly. I do have plenty of those sitting around. Getting Ziggy With It is probably my favorite from her preview post.
