Are you Frivoling...?

Have you heard the latest?  Moda has come out with these collectible tins called Frivols! I am such a push over for tins!  Check out Frivol 1!  It even has a clear top!!!!

Every month Moda issues a new Frivol tin that features a designer pattern and a new fabric line! Last month Bonnie & Camille were featured.  The pattern is called Kindred and they used the fabric line Hello Darling!

Now the tin alone was enough to peak my attention but the use of Hello Darling fabric line threw me over the top! lol Love, love, love that line!  I pet it every time I pass by! I love my job! lol

Here is my completed top!

Love how it turned out.  (yes, that's another quilt in the background - You all know that I'm ADDH and OCD right!) lol

I'm hoping to schedule a play date with Penelope this weekend to get it machine quilted.  Would make a great shop sample, that is, until the tins are sold out! (quantities are limited)

So, if you read in the news that a quilter has been injured by a Moda Frivol tin avalanche, that would be me! I'm hooked!

Catch you later!

She's off .... !

My little Pumpkin has left for college.  It has been an adjustment for both of us... and .... It's all good!

Before she left, we spent a lot of mother daughter time together.  One Sunday, we decided to visit this huge mall in Albany that has a "Build a Bear" workshop.  Have you ever been?  What a great idea.  As you build your bear, you come to a point where you must add a heart.  Well, Pumpkin and I traded hearts.  My bear has her heart and hers mine.   Isn't she the cutest?  Her name is Pumpkin!

As you can imagine, there hasn't been much quilting going on, but I did get a bit of sewing.  Yea, you read right, sewing NOT quilting.  I really do not like to sew but Pumpkin, the other one, needed a laundry bag.  So, I designed this little bag.

I'll admit, it wasn't that bad.  I even used the button whole feature on my Bernina.  Check it out!

The fabric line is Scrumptious by Bonnie & Camille.  I love that line!

I've been after DH for a while now to build me a quilt cabinet.  I was tired of having my quilts stacked here and there and every where.  After discussing some specifications, this is what he built for me.

Doors open!  Very roomy!

Notice that it is not filled, yet!  That's on my "to do" list today!  I best be getting off this computer and working on that!

Enjoy your day!  Cheers!
