Project completed by you


 Dandelion Quilt Swap

Twin quilt for my great aunt Bush,  who is in hospice

Project when you need a quick finish: Definitely a zig zag quilt using this tute

Least Favorites:
Color: no such thing!
Fabric line: The brick red and brown plaid reproduction prints
Project completed by you:  My first quilt… Everything about it was wrong! It was TWO layers of fleece and I had the nerve to add batting. It was tied in yellow yarn and was so ridiculous. No pics of that monster mess, darn!

Oh, and when I attempted the Petite Diaper Tote from the book One Yard Wonders, I made a bit of a mess. My stabilizer was way too strong and the bag is as rigid as a sailor on night watch at the panty factory.. I use it to carry bottles of wine instead – bingo!


Thank you for joining us Francine and starting us off right,
I think thats a super cute wine bag!!

Have a fabulous weekend everyone

  1. Oh very, very funny post! Nice to meet Francine.

  2. From a diaper bag to wine caddy - love it. of course sometimes too much wine leads to a need for a diaper bag in the first place so...hhhmmm I guess the two are related!

  3. Haha, love the wine/diaper bag. I agree they go together perfectly.

  4. Lol, gotta love someone that can see a diaper bag repurposed for carrying wine :oD

  5. Such a fun post! It's great how us quilters can make use of something that goes wrong =D

  6. I just met Francine through the Nubees block swap, so I loved to see this feature! Love the Dandelion quilt swap mini!
