Made by Others

It’s sew fun to see what others have created using my patterns. I love reading about the personal touches that everyone adds. So, I thought I’d take a minute to share some of their fabulous projects.
This was Connie’s first attempt at applique. Would you have guessed? She did an amazing job!! This quilt was made using the Snack Attack pattern. Guess what? She won 3rd place at the county fair. Now that’s something to brag about! You can read her post HERE.
Be sure to visit her blog, Missing Willow Farm. She shares the most beautiful photos of her farm.

This project was made by Coral using The New Food Pyramid pattern. It was a gift for her sister-in-law. I just LOVE the border fabric. It really pulls it all together. The 3-D elements that she added really make it fun too! Doesn’t it just make you smile? The quilting is so beautiful. You can find more of Coral’s projects HERE.
Alyson from the Hasty Quilter blog created a half sized…you heard right…half sized wall hanging using the Fascinating Friday quilt along. Sooo many teeny tiny pieces! It was a surprise gift for her boss who was retiring.  It turned out AMAZING. I love the fabrics. They give it a digital look up close but it looks great as you back away and it comes into focus. You can read her post and tips for shrinking a quilt to a wall hanging HERE.

Kirstin from the Hello Kirsti blog created a 2 great kitchen sets. One for her 18-inch doll and one for her cousin’s doll. She replaced some of the ribbon with decorative elastic to make it easier to dress the doll. She also added a hang loop on the oven mitt and interfacing to the hat. What great ideas! You can read about them HERE.
