    Me and my mouth!!! I was chatting with a friend about quilts and I told her I had been playing with some ideas like a friend on this board did (Izy and her baby quilts). I doodled a couple of things outta my head on a scrap piece of paper...one quilt for a boy, one quilt for a girl....her daughter took a peek and said I'll give you $150.00 each to make them for me.

    Now...look what I've got going...not enough time to do them, but here is some of the girl quilt in parts. I have to redo part of her skirt (I don't like it) and I have to redo her eyes...they aren't the same size..she looks demented! I'll be embroidering eyebrows, nose and mouth.

    Too cute! I don't think she looks demented at all. Will be an adorable quilt for a little girl.

    She is not demented at all LOL She is WONDERFUL

    I hope this is extra fabric you really were not going to be using. I know I spent over $130 and thats not including the batting for Davids cousin's quilt. Yes I have some left over but not enough to make another quilt.
    sshhhh I hope he dont read this :shock: I never told him how much I spent LOL
    Its a way to get started then you can start getting your price in line to make some money and not just pay for the fabric.

    How sweet is this? Very creative! Maybe it's because it's just a picture, but I can't see the demented eyes, either!

    Woo Hoo!! You go girl Patti!!

    Well I think she is absolutely cute as a button!!


    Isn't it just great fun making up your own designs, I have just started my old cogs rolling for another baby quilt, been up since 5am thinking about it and searching my laptop for inspiration as one of our favourite Spanish waiters is due their first baby in September!!


    Loving the look of this one Patti, glad I managed to catch this post!! :D :D :D

    Well, maybe the eyes will look better when she gets her makeup on (eye brows) and of course, nose and mouth. Thanks all. I did fix the skirt last night. It is really going together quicker than I thought it would. If DH would quite inerrupting me, I'd almost be done!! Can't imagine why he thinks I need to cook, run errands, grocery shop...???? He obviously has his priorities all wrong!! :roll: :lol: :lol:

    Yea...it is mostly fabric from my stash. But...I would be buying and making something anyway and probably donating it to someone..so a little cash doesn't hurt anything, right??? :lol: This is certainly not a hobby for sissies!! It can get very expensive! :shock:

    The boy design is similar, but it will involve lizards and snails and puppy dog tails instead of the sugar and kisses.... :wink:

    I love it- she has cute eyes. I like hearing when someone makes their own pattern- I know they are really into honing their craft.

    Great job Patti! Can't wait to see it all together.
