My 100th Blog Post!


 Wow! This is my 100th blog post! I wish I had major exciting things to say. I did finish this little "Lorax" quilt so that's kind of exciting. I actually have a finish to show you. :) I sewed this quilt "free style" with no plan but to use up scraps from a larger quilt I had made for my son's bed.



It's a baby quilt and I've listed it in my Etsy shop.

I love 9 patches! And I tried to fussy cut the Lorax on red fabric for the centre squares in the log cabin inspired blocks up the middle of the quilt.
 
 I was very excited to receive my quilt labels in the mail today from Jennifer's Jewels. Squee! I feel so legit now. Can't wait to sew them into garments and onto quilts.
Thanksgiving is coming up this weekend here in Canada. My son made this adorable turkey at after school care today while I was at work. So cute! I need to find a good recipe for pumpkin cupcakes as I have an adorable Thanksgiving cupcake kit from "Merci" that I bought at an adorable little "Unique Boutique" on Main Street in my town. My Mom is hosting dinner but I usually make the dessert. Do you know of a good recipe? If so, please email me with it or a link to it. I would be so Thankful! :)

I still have a bit of Lorax scraps left. I will mail them to the first person who tells me they want them so leave a comment if you do. There is 90 grams of fabric mostly in 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 inch strips. Some slightly larger squares too. Happy Thanksgiving if I don't get a chance to blog again before then!

I am linking up this finished baby quilt to TGIFF. You can find the linky here or click the TGIFF button in my button bar.
