Cutting fabric with your Cricut!

Oh my goodness! (i say that a lot) I cannot believe what I just came across. Cutting fabric with my lonely cricut machine. I haven't tried it personally, but please go see the awesome tutorial by allie b dallie.  Just think of the possibilities: personalized pillows, decorated tshirs, onesies, bags etc.  Let me know if you give it a try and I'll show you my results soon :)  I promise! lol

Simple Sampler Quilt Along

Good morning everyone!

I am participating in my first quilt along.  I have been trying to sew a sampler quilt for quite awhile but have never finished it.  Now Amy's Creative Side: Simple Sampler quilt along comes along and it is just what I need to get my butt moving!  I'll be posting my finished blocks on my flickr page as I go along.  Let me know if you are going to join me.  We can do it TOGETHER :)

Look on the right sidebar!

When I came across Rossie's post about "the pledge",  I totally agreed.  Too many times we post the after of our projects and not the process and how we got there.  I know when I look at other quilt blogs, I want to learn from them as well as see the end result.   "The goal of the process pledge is to create a new sensibility in quilting blogs where we don’t just show finishes or occasionally confess about our moments of indecision, but chat openly and often about our works in progress, our inspirations, and our moments of decision. I know that many of us are already posting about our thinking on quilts and the processes involved from start to finish, let's do more! And let's post about quilts as we work on them. I want to see more half-done quilts, not just the finished thing with a journal entry about the process."

So in the future:

I, Cindy, pledge to talk more about my processes, even when I can’t quite put them in the in words or be sure I’m being totally clear. I’m going to put my thinking and my gut feelings out there.

Who's with me? :)  Check out the link and let me know what you think?   I love to hear from anyone in blogland :)

First baby boy blanket

I finally get to make a boy (cheater) quilt for someone.  Although I love love love girly fabric, I have wanted to try out blues/browns for sometime.  I have just started a baby boy wallhanging/blanket for a special niece who is pregnant with the first boy in the family.  I have never used blue/browns in a quilt so this is new and exciting.   I'll update when it is finished.  I'm also going to try and show the process for completing this project.  I know I like to see how someone makes their projects as well as the end results.  How is everyone doing with their projects this month?
