Birthday card SSSC118

Maybe I should have photographed this in a more shaded place, but since we've had almost no sun for 1 month, I thought let's enjoy it! This is for a birthday party my daughter is going to on Sunday, based on the newest sketch at The Sweetest Thing blog.

Sherbert pips 9 patch

I made this Sunday night with a sherbert pips charm pack. I used the disappearing 9 patch technique, there are tons of tutorials online for this. I backed the blankie with some cuddle chenille. I've linked this over to Fabric Tuesdays on Quiltstory. I've been having trouble posting since yesterday, so yes I know this is a day late!

Tulip Quilt

I made this quilt about 10 years ago, BC (before children) while living in Alberta. There was a fabulous little quilt shop there, where I learned to quilt. I took many classes, and this tulip quilt was one of them. I believe the pattern is by the Buggy Barn, not positive though. It was the first quilt that I ever appliqued, and the whole thing is hand quilted, which took a long time, but is so beautiful in person. I still love this quilt after all these years, love the deep purple of the tulips, and the different shades of neutrals on the back. There was one fat quarter I used that was sparkly snowflakes, that one was my favorite. I am just now posting this quilt because I wanted to share it on the Bloggers Quilt Festival that Amy Ellis is hosting.

Father's Day Card

Here is a card for my Dad (who is a farmer, and always plants a huge garden) for Father's Day. The stamp is from Stamping Bella, I used prismacolors to color. I'm trying to use up some leftover paper from last week's stamp-a-stack, so you may see similar color combos more than once!!

I hope you don't mind Lisa, but I am sharing your cards from Saturday's stamp-a-stack in Windsor. Kelly has also posted all the cards on her blog at My Stamping Studio.
We had a great time on Saturday, the participants made 24 all occasion cards (2 each of 12 designs). We have already booked the Christmas one for October 23rd!

Reusable snack bags

I made these yesterday for part of a birthday party gift. They are great for dry snacks for school, in the car etc. and are machine washable. I use nylon for the inside, so lots of times I just brush the crumbs out with a damp cloth.

SAS card 4

I just finished the last card for stamp-a-stack next Saturday. I used a sketch from the blog the sweetest thing for her sketch challenge 115. I used a Taylored Expression stamp and the sentiment is Stampin Up!
