Two Birds, One yard...Making Magic...Clothing for children


Have you visited Jacque at http://lilypadquilting.blogspot.com? She is hosting a marvellous charity project with lots of wonderFULL prizes if you do yourself/her a favor and clear out your stash!!!!!!!! How awesom is that, you manicure your stash and you may win a prize and small children WIN by getting new clothes. Another wonderful quilter making a difference! The link is on my sidebar if you click on the photo.

And this border on this tiny quilt is a MacGyver Makeshift....I realized when I arrived at dodgeball I did not have my quilting suitcase...what to do....Well, I spied some duct tape....."What if I use the sticky side for a palette and cut out wonky sizes..." POOF! Now to buy a heavy duty needle to applique.

I LOVE your little corduroy quilt. You are industrious with that duct tape. That's a new one! But isn't that the magic of making quilts? It's all about making do with what you have.

Love it Em! I agree with Nifty, many times the best quilt are those where you just do it! just create with what's on hand. I know my Grandma never bought fabric for quilts, and she made lots of them!

I love your little bird quil. It is so adorable. You so inspire me with everything you do. Not much sewing here the last 2 weeks and I'm itching to work on something. Not sure I'll use Duct tape....lol Hugs
