POLAR BEARS IN AUGUST?

Who likes red, white and turquoise color combo in a kwilt?
with an easy kwilt pattern?


I selected the Backyard Fun pattern
 from Precut Quilts book by Janie Vogel
Who likes polar bears?




and polka-dots!





Who likes a simple straight line kwilting...
across vertically and horizontally.



   Who likes a polka dot binding?  
Who likes a kwilt care label? 


 Who likes a fun stash backing? 



Who likes Polar Bears in August!  




I hope the who is YOU!
a 3QTR finish 
a possible Handmade Christmas gift for someone

GHAST, STASH and RUSH!

Only 2 spots left for the Ghastlies Swap and
sign ups end (tomorrow) 8/25 



I am thrilled with the response from my bloggy and  IG friends.
Man...now I know what all the hoopla is about IG.
Y'all jumped on this like a bunch of Ghastlies on fire!  
I can feel the heat!


Now to the stashing at hand!
I'm a little slow in jumping on board with all great 
exciting fabrics that are constantly appearing everywhere! 
  I just ordered these Charlie Harper FQs
  I am a gardener and love these birds, bugs and leaves! 

  
I luv it when I find a great sale.  
Thanks Fabric Worm who recently offered a recent 25% off. 
And a 5.00 discount code!   Woot woot.  

By the time I get something made with it...
well it will be very old news.  
But it will be MY old news!  

In other RUSH HOUR traffic news...
I took this stack of 13 FQs and made 5 projects.


You'll have to stay tuned for the
My 5 projects are DONE
Go on...Call me an over-achiever
  I've been called worse!  LOL

From the GHASTLIES Christmas line...
What could you make with just one finished block?


Make a wonky design..
Ghastlies in the center as the star!

This block could be the pocket on a simple tote bag.





Have a piece of Ghastlies Fabric you don't want to cut?
 Hoop it and add embroidery enhancements!
