Vals Projects (entry 32)

So I have so much on the go right now...

My Freebie 15 from last year 09-10 here's where I'm at on the completion process

1st my pile of 3" x 1" scraps left over from the center blocks and some of the sashing

 I want to create a piano key style of border but because I just have these little scraps to play with I'm taking this process slow so Ideas will come to be incase I don't have enough fabric

here's them pieced in twos - isn't this just a little pile of cuteness?

Here's the comings together of my Threads in Hands Class - my Home or Yours that I've been working on...There is 12 of these blocks - complete!

I decided to do my triangle borders different then the original and I added this 3D border - what do you think?

I haven't totally decided on these hearts in the corners - I'm torn about making them bigger or keeping them the original way.

Another project I'm working on...

baby quilt for one of my friends babies - here's the colour choices I can't really say too much as this friend might find out and then it won't be a surprise...we'll see how far this goes

 

For my next one I will have at least 2 tuffets finished, I want to make another apron, get the border finished on my log cabin & start my two mystery quilts...oh yeah and do the 1st freebie 15 block from these year...adorable.

Cutest Camera Bag (entry 12)

So, here's the final camera bag instead of the standard "black" vinyl one with the ugly sippers and straps. This one the camera strap is the only strap, I have to add buttons and a few embellishments but it's good to go. I love the waffle muslin inside and the chocolate brown with white flowers on the outside...

And then I added the bows & buttons!!

The buttons have to be slightly offset as the camers is offset due to the flash (Nikon D60)

 

After me writing about these fabric covered tins (one done to date) I have finally taken some pics...I have 2 more to go using more of the same line of fabric. I still need to add a few embellishments not sure exactly what yet. I've used this first one for storing my scrappy 1.5" squares from all of the Quilts Past :-)
