WHAT HAS BEEN GOING ON AT BEJEWELED?

I decided not to post for a few days to let the button giveaway have full range of my blog. Infact, if you are looking for that giveaway it is just one post below.

Look what I started? HA!!! That is me laughing....yes, I am nutzzzzz for starting another project.

An orange slice quilt...whohooooo but this time it is going to be bigger. I ran into a snag....I ran out of the white I needed. So I went and got a tone on tone white for the 6 1/2 inch sqaures....do you think that will work. I have not cut into them for fear of it not looking good and then ruining the fabric.

Did one square for my Be Attitudes quilt!

Finished quilting this quilt, just needs a binding now....it looks bubbly because I just threw it on the floor and how it landed is how I took the picture.

It is amazing how a bad hair cut can affect someone's self esteem....all I do is go by the mirror and be mean to myself....so I am trying to keep busy and my mind off this "do"..sheweeeee...
So I am trying to be joyful!
Oh...by the way, Gene is going to be picking the 10 winners for the button giveaway, I wanted my family to have a chance to enter if they wanted to. He is not even going to look at the comments until he has chosen the numbers....how is that. So he said he will post tomorrow night. Sounds good to me....Thanks Gene.

  1. Did you lay the tone on tone fabric with your blocks? I love the Be Joyful block. Isn't this a fun quilt? I love the apple core quilt even more. I see you are keeping busy.

  3. Love the apple core quilt, and I think a tone on tone would mix just fine with your gorgeous blocks!

  4. I bet a tone on tone will look spiffy. Is it easy enough to audition it by laying the blocks out on it?

    And, boy can I relate to being mean to yourself when you pass a mirror. ;D Be nice!! hehe

  15. Now I want to make an orange slice quilt! I love orange! Just lay your tone on tone fabric out and then lay your ornage slice blocks on top of it to see how it looks without cutting into it! :0)

  16. I would spread out your tone on tone and then lay the over blocks on top. The more fabrics the merrier.

  20. Those orange slice blocks are impressive, I have a thing for orange fabrics. If it's a wow tone on tone, it should look just fine. The Be attitudes block is adorable and so is the apple core quilt. You've accomplished quite a bit. Way to go girl!

  25. I really really love your Orange Slice project!! If you can, I would recommend you find more of your white fabric. I have found that some W-O-W fabrics turn yellow with time and not always in a nice way and it's hard to determine which one will not do it. IMHO :0)
