Above are 2 strip sets: the browns and the puples. I was inspired to try this by Wanda Hanson on her blog at http://exuberantcolor.blogspot.com/ Just click on her topic "Strips and Curves" and just keep on scrolling to see all her great work. So it's back to the sewing room I go!

Start up Fee (whatever that is) $ 25.00
13 months @ $24.95 per 324.35
Recommended Templates 45.00
Estimated shipping for 13 months 75.00 and that's at the low end of $5.00 per month
This makes for a grand total of $469.35 for a "cream, tan & off white quilt measuring 81" X 105". Naturally, this does not include batting or backing. Now, I don't know about you ladies and gents, but for
$470 I WANT IT CUT, PIECED AND DELIVERED FULLY SEWN!! Even if these were designer fabrics (which they are not) it would not cost this much to purchase the pattern and all the fabric needed.
So, I just want to say: Buyer Beware!! It makes me think I'm in the wrong line of work because the profit margin here is close to criminal...and us quilters shouldn't be fleeced like this.
HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS?

This cute wallhanging is appropriately named "Joys of Christmas". It was made using a lot of fusible web, and echo quilted. I found some of the cutest buttons to embellish this piece. It's only 29" X 34 1/2" in size but just eminates all things Holiday!
Both of these are now for sale in my Etsy shop. If you'd like to visit the shop just click on the Etsy button in the left column.

The hardest part of this block was making the fabric choices! Last night I put the blocks together and now I just need to add the borders. I will update with a picture when that's completed. Click on the picture to enlarge and see the fabrics if you like.

This wallhanging was a labor of love with all it's little applique pieces, but it's got all the stuff I like pictured in it. I hope you like it too.

So, what I have learned from all of this is that sometimes trying new things is definitely a positive experience!

This is my "Winter Whimsey" wallhanging. This is an original design I created because I was looking for something that would hang past Christmas yet featured the whimsical things we all associate with winter. It was great fun designing the appliques since this was the first time I attempted that! Of course I had to add such things as a cool cat with his winter scarf, ice skates and a red sled! I have self-published this pattern and I am offering it for $7.95 at my Etsy store. This has been a new learning experience for me and I hope you all enjoy it.

One I particularly liked was to put one of those slim plastic 1 gallon water containers with the pour spout next to the ironing board. This way you don't have to go to the kitchen or bathroom each time you need to fill your iron. I just happen to have one on the shelf that's not in use.
She also follows through on all her suggestions with a link to where you can buy any necessary items. She has great ideas and I highly recommend you check her out.
