S'More Favors

 Saturday was my daughter's 
Bridal Shower
and I had the opportunity to 
provide the favors
as a "Thank You" for the guests who attended
Aubrey and Kevin met at a 
Church Camp Out
and immediately fell in love.
He took her back up to that same campsite
in the Arizona mountains
 to propose.
I thought it only appropriate that I make
S'More Favors 
to honor their union.

Gold Fish Crackers Quilt Blocks

 I've had a very productive few days
in getting caught up making my
Bees Knees Blocks
For the month of September
Melissa Corry  (Happy Quilting)
asked us to make any kind of quilt block
with a Camping/ Outdoor Theme
She sent us the cutest fabrics
from the Smoors Love Collection
by Cosmo Cricket
 I opted to make
Gold Fish Crackers
12 1/2 " X 12 1/2" Unfinished
from a 
Free Tutorial offered by the
Emerald Coast Modern Quilt Guild
 I even added in a few of my own fabrics
for the backgrounds 
with one in blue
to give it that fishy water look :)
 I hope Melissa likes my choice
because these were so fun to make,
 she is not just getting one block...
 but a School of Fish !!
 I'd love to make a quilt out of these blocks myself.
I don't have any fisherman in my life
but I do love to look at Aquariums :)
The Emerald Coast Guild even gives
a possible layout suggestion.

Bees Knees 9-Patch Blocks

 Once upon a time
there was a lovely lady named
Shari Butler of Doohikey Designs
who sent each of her fellow 
Bees Knees members
a packet of fabric.
That would have been 
last June of 2014
Unfortunately my package was sent to an old address
and never heard from again.
Lots of e-mails back and forth
and we still had no idea where the package ended up.
Now, there is a happy ending to this sad story:
Just this week I 
finally  (!)
located the long lost package  !!
Inside were some 
wonderful Riley Blake Halloween fabrics
with the instructions to make
a simple 9-Patch
 Mission accomplished
 before All Hallows Eve
 Shari also requested that we make a second 
9 1/2 inch unfinished
Half Square Triangle Star Block
 Mission accomplished
 Little snag: 
there was not enough fabric to finish one corner of the block.
Shari said not to worry,
just send as is, and she will finish the rest.
I am happy to report that
these blocks are now on their way to Shari's house
in Layton, Utah
and our Long Lost Saga
has now come to an end :)
