Minky Girl Scout Blanket

I made this for my twin's Girl Scout group as a prize for something they were doing.  I wanted to share.  It was made with Robert Kaufman's Girl Scout fabric and Cream dimple dot minky.

What do you get when you turn a Disappearing 9 Patch into Half Squared Triangles?

This post is for Quilt Story's Fabric Tuesday.  You can check out all the other cool projects by clicking the image below:


I made some Disappearing 9 patch blocks and thought to myself, "I wonder what it would look like to turn them into Half Squared Triangles."  I really like them!  I plan to do this block style again.  I do need to trim up the blocks.  What would you even call it?  Any suggestions?

Soft on the Skin

Well, I have several medium sized minky scraps just lying around, so I decided to make some more washcloths.  I personally use one.  They are not really meant for exfoliating, but they are soft & gentle on the skin.  I love washing my face with one in-between my exfoliating days.  Would be great in a relaxing bubble bath alone or with a partner.  I also think they would be good for rubbing on the skin during a massage.

I made several of 2 different kinds.  The first ones are sewn right sides together, pinned in all 4 corners and on each side, turned inside out, then sewn around the edges using my 1/4 inch foot.  The 2nd kind are wrong sides put together, pinned in all 4 corners and each side, since I don't have a Serger I zig zagged around the edges using my 1/4 inch foot, then 1/8 inch trimmed from the edges with a rotary cutter to make all edges even for both fabrics.  They are about 6 inches square.  The pink one at the very bottom is for a small girl and it's about 5 inches square.  I also made some of the 2nd kind in 4 inch square for a 1 year old baby boy.  I made several of each kind, enough to last a couple of weeks or so.

The 2nd style have been straight stitch quilted with an X pattern.  The little flip on the 2nd style shows the color for the other side.

Let me know which style you like better.  I personally feel that the 2nd ones are easier to make.

Candy for the Fridge!

Besides fabrics, I have a major fetish for magnets.  I love bright colors & candy as well.  So I mixed them all together to make some fun magnets!  These are gifts, hence the cello bags.  I have resin jewelry molds but prefer making magnets instead.  I think my favorite magnets to make are the M&M's ones!  It's great that they come in all kinds of color combinations throughout the year for the holidays & seasons.  I have several other resin molds as well.

My friend is going to help me with my camera settings, so that future pictures will be sharper.   The circles are 2.25 inches in diameter and are made with the inside of a Resin Bangle mold.  The small stars are about 1 inch diameter, the large star is about 1.5 inch diameter, the heart is about 2 inch diameter, the square is about 1.25 inch diameter (Remember Runts candy?).
