Yesterday I took a American Star Quilting class along with a great friend of mine.  We always have a blast when we are together and we do a lot of cutting up in more ways than one.  I decided to make my quilt out of Christmas material because I really wasn't too sure I would like it to be honest.  Well I LOVE it and it only took 4 1/2 hours to get this much completed.  Well along with having to seam rip a few seams as I have a problem with things not matching maybe a little OCD??? not sure!!  Now my head is spinning as I'm wanting to make one with cars for boys, girly items of course for girls, and dogs for my grown children. I think this would be a great quilt to do for a memorial quilt of someones love ones clothes items. I've had several people to ask me to make other items for passed loved ones like bears and owls.  I think I'll start with my own Mother's things, one for sure is a hankie then I can hang it up as wall art.

My great finds:) Back from the Conference and I had a wonderful time.  Learned a lot, ate a lot and was able to find some wonderful material!!  I think I'll make the blue, purple and green along with the 2  in the top left picture  like the picture shown here. I purchased 2 other patterns from the same place and I bought some extra material to match some material that I had at home.  Might just put some of that together and see what I come up with.  Visit this week and see what happens:)

Just wanted to let everyone know that I will be attending a Teacher Assistant Conference Thursday through Sunday.  I hope to find a few great fabric stores and a Hobby Lobby in Greensboro where we'll be:)  I love the after hours of our classes when we can go and do our own thing and have some fellowship with our friends.  I'll be posting some new items next week of some more little girls outfits I have tossing around in my mind. Have a great weekend.
