As I said in the previous post, I have been working on a quilt by the name of "Confetti." One of the things that you need to do is to make 179 4-patches out of 2" scrap squares. I have been making these like crazy lately and I have found that the easiest way to make a ton of them is to cut a bunch of squares and then chain piece. So far I have 152 completed 4 patches. Here are some squares and they are magically transformed into...
perfectly stacked and stitched pairs of squares.
They were then finger pressed open and stitched together again. I finished them into somewhere around 40ish patches and that helped with my count. I'll be back with more as soon as I possibly can.

Saturday, January 30, 2010
Hey everybody!! So sorry that I have been missing in action for a while, but I've been crafting plenty and having lots of fun doing so! It's the blogging world that I've probably been missing out on. With school work all the time and babysitting for my parents a lot, I just haven't had time to sit down and blog. So today I've been working a lot on the jewelry aspect of my business, creating new designs, coming up with reasonable prices for them, and lastly, printing some business cards. I just can't explain the excitement I had when I saw these little piece of paper with my name on them. I'm not quite sure why, maybe because I'm hoping for some more sales or even because they look so nice. My dad helped me out with them (he's a graphic designer) and some other time, I will have him make some for Elizabeth. I'm not going to post any pictures today because I haven't really taken any but for a couple days I was working on a quilt I found in a magazine by the name of "Confetti." It uses a ton of 2" scrap squares and I am in complete LOVE with scrap quilts. That is most likely a good thing, though, because I have a lot of them! If you have anything that you would like to buy (a wall hanging, a piece of jewelry or anything of the like) please leave a comment with the details. I just want to make a note that almost everything I post on this blog IS available for sale if you just ask and the only things that are NOT are my scrapbooking pages! So anyways, if there is any craft that you do that you would like to see on my blog, just post a comment, because I am always on the lookout for new crafts to try out. Also, if there is any project that you have been wanting to try, but have been afraid to, just link it in the comments section and I will try it out for you! I finish projects fairly quickly because most of them are small so I am always on the lookout for new projects. Remember to invite your friends on over and I'll talk to all of you later!!
