Unable to Access!!

Sorry about this!!! 

I recently changed my blog address from to Wow! What a pain in the butt that turned out to be. It turns out my purchase never went through... I sat here like an idiot hoping it was just a time thing....  It wasn't.  It's almost fixed now.  I promise.  :)

I'm off to Vegas for a few days!  (YES, again!)  :)

Hoping all of you have a lovely weekend.

Swaps Received!

Look at the pillow I got from PTS 7! 

Ack!!!  Isn't it awesome?!?!  Amanda did an awesome job! 
I love this so much because it's so scrappy!  Plus, I adore these colors. 

Thank you so much, Amanda!  It's already part of the family.  :)

So, the pillow I made for Joanna was well received!  She's pretty happy with it.  Phew!  :)

Here's another swap that I received.  These 2 mini's are from Rebecca. 
We did a private mini quilt swap.  Aren't they adorable?!?!

I really love them. They will be hanging in my sewing space very soon. :) 
Thanks again, Rebecca! I can't wait to put these up!
This what I sent her.  Some granny squares....  :)

If you've been wanting to make one, here's a great granny squares tute!

I hope you all are having a great weekend.  :P

My First Show!

I'm happy to announce that I particapted in my first Quilt Show last weekend.  The Glendale Quilt Guild puts on a big quilt show every year.  This year, they had a small exhibit for our guild.  It was very cool seeing my quilt on display.  It was even cooler to hear what other people had to say.  I felt like a fly on a wall.  :)

So here's my quilt along with some by my friends...

This one is Maria's Seams Perfect Bee Quilt.  I made 4 blocks in this one.  Isn't it Fabulous?!?!

Here's another one of hers. 
This is the one she made for the Robert Kaufman solids challenge last year. 

The red one on the end is Liberty's.  She hand quilted it and it looks beautiful. 
The other 2 were done by Allison
The one in middle was the winner of MQG Organic Challenge.

More awesome-ness by Alissa, Tanya and Latifah

I attended this show last year and it was my frst show.  It was a big kick going to the show as an exhibitor.  I'm so looking forward to participating in more shows. 

A BIG Thank you to the LAMQG for arranging all of this.

What do you think, Partner?

PTS 7 is Pillow Talk Swap 7. I'm currently participating in another round. I really love this swap because there are some seriously talented people. Receiving a pillow from any of these peeps is 'A okay' with me.   

A few weeks ago, I saw Rashida's quilt and was smitten!  There was something similar to this in my partner's favorites, so I went for it.  I drew up a quick block and Voila!

Here you go, partner!

 It's paper pieced.  

 I used Kona Bone and I hand quilted all of it with floss.

I used some Nicey Jane for the back and some Bijoux to bind.

I added a label that came out a little too big.  Sorry about that, Partner!  : /

 I really enjoyed making this for you, Partner.  I looked through your photo's and almost fainted at some of your work....  I hope it's up to par with your high standards.  I hope you find this pillow as lovely as I do. 

I'll be posting the pattern I used soon!.  It needs a bit of fine tuning, so I may need a litle help from a dear friend.

I'll be a little busy the next few weeks.  I need to finish up a quilt that will be in the Glendale Quilt Show.
