House paper piece pattern located at: http://www.connectingthreads.com/patterns/House_Keepsake_Frame_Card…free!
Printed up 9 of them blown up to 8.5 square
Won’t be sashing them…just putting them right next to each other on ‘postage stamp lots’ like in the big city
Will surround the belly button of the quilt with assorted shades of rainbow probably in 4.5 inch strips to make this a nice baby sized quilt or perhaps a wall hanging. June 24th 2012

Some fabric and center block for the Tree hugger save the everything reduce that carbon foot print quilt…whew what a LONG name!
Center block is completed and is about 14 inches square…the pattern for the pine trees is FREE from:http://www.quilterscache.com/T/ThePinesBlock.html the center block will be sashed with something lime/Kermit the frog tummy…thinking 3.2 inch width.
The wide border is this FABULOUS save the whale, tree hugger, no nukes fabric from Kris to the K…it is SOOOOOOOOO neato I just had to throw a quilt idea together for it! The base color of the fabric is light ish turquoise with bright purples and green…the corner blocks will be paper pieced wonky houses in colors to go with this eye burning carbon foot print shrinking pile of giggle-ee-tude…in other words…haven’t decided yet! Wonky house pattern found FREE at: http://www.forestquilting.com/paperpiecing_free/paperpiecing_free_p…
Another 3.2 width border of same or similar green border
Hmmm…perhaps a border of rainbow stripe OR I’ll make my own rainbow out of 2.5 by hmmm…6.5 inch strips…can you ever have too much rainbow?!? Corner blocks for the rainbow border?!? Small 6.5 inch paper pieced trees matching the center block…not totally matching of course since I made the center a few years ago.
Finish it all up with a 3.5 width green border…with the ever popular rainbow prairie points in lieu of a binding…another eye burning spectacular yet to made but basically thought through quilted loveliness…will probably keep this one since it has the first paper pieced blocks I’ve ever made and the super special fabric from my friend!

Paper piece frog pattern available at: http://www.paperpanache.com/free/guestpats/amobirdfrog.htm will be blowing up to 8.5 X 11 paper sized…so frogs will probably be about 8.5 inches square…frogs and their water backgrounds will be scrappy so no 2 are alike…no sashing…frog next to frog so the blue background can look like dappled blue water, I may use all different blues for the background to give the water more movement…I’m thinking embroidered or button eyes… June 24th 2012
Fabrics for the Use Up All That Fairy Fabric Quilt June 24th 2012
bumble bee stripes fabrics for the A brain storm of a quilt called Applebee’s
Center block is already made …the black and yellow borders will be oh I’m thinking 3.5 inch squares and black Minky and yellow flannel for a fuzzy bumble bee feel. The yellow border is the same bumble bee fabric that is the outer yellow of the center block. Of course the whole quilt will be finished up with left over yellow bee fabric and black to match the outer black border prairie points!
Okey Dokey so the apple paper pieced pattern can be found at:http://fandominstitches.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/pattern_ofenjen…
And here’s the sweet honey bee pattern: http://piecebynumber.com/honeybee.htm
Jazmin’s still in process Halloweenie quilt…so I’ve already wandered off the beaten path and put a border of assorted Halloween squares…then I’ll be adding a skinny border of the batik green…then the orange and black checker board border with paper pieced witches as corner blocks…this top is already getting too big to hang for pictures…I have the feeling it will indeed be larder than lap sized!
