We have new toys on the site! And when I say “we”, what I really mean is that Lorna and Judy have ordered toys for the site. They love toys from eeBoo —they’re pretty and sturdy and smart— and they know some of you do as well.
I’m making a pillow featuring my cat Jim and I thought it would be fun to share the idea and techniques. In case some of you don’t catch my Time Outs in other places (YouTube, Facebook, and now IGTV), here is Part 1 where I show you how you can get a drawing of your own special pet.
What sets this bobbin box apart if the foam insert. It holds the bobbins and (in most cases) will keep them from spilling out of the box if you tip it over. And, because the bobbins don’t move around, thread tails stay put. Yay!
I wish you could hold one of these mugs right now because once you do, you know why they are so very special. Rebecca made these blue and white (with a touch of green) mugs just for Piece O’ Cake. Quantities are very limited and I don’t know when we can get more. Click here to find the mugs.
If you tried to order when I posted the video, they showed as sold out. That was my fault… there were buttons I failed to push. We do still have some as I post this.Click here to find the mugs.
Present-giving season is upon us and these special mugs make perfect gifts for your favorite people. Who knows, you might need to gift one to yourself!
Debra Miller sent me this photo of her finished Bullseye wall quilt. Here’s the story:
I took your bullseye class at the Ky Heritage Quilt Society getaway (Cave City, KY) in June 2019. Finally finished the quilt during Covid shutdown. Did the quilting myself. Trimmed with flying geese and done with extra trapunto behind the bullseye. Measures 46” square. Unfortunately I didn’t win a ribbon (at the Kentucky State Fair 2021) but I love it and so does my husband. I have a place for it in a guest bedroom. Thanks for great instruction. I picked up a lot in your class.

Debra, your quilt is lovely and how wonderful that you got to share it in person with those who saw it at the fair and here, online! It does not need a ribbon to be a winner :-). Thank you for sharing it with us!
On a personal note, I always enjoy hearing when projects started in one of my classes get finished. If any of you are interested in making a Bullseye quilt, large or small, you can find the book here AND you can find my online class that includes the ebook on Creative Spark.

Sue Kersey sent me this photo of her Christmas Delivery quilt. I love the way she embellished it!
I got pieces of the pattern from a friend as she found it at a garage sale. So I did the best I could figure out and made it into a small Christmas quilt this last year during the pandemic. I thought it might be yours but it was not marked and I would love to know what it is called. Was it a book, just a pattern or I think you said it was a download?
To answer Sue’s questions, Christmas Delivery was never in a book. It has always been a downloadable pattern (click here to find it). I made mine into a pillow but, as you can see, it makes a wonderful wall quilt! Thank you, Sue, for sharing it with all of us :-).
