I am so excited because I've been wanting to dabble in machine quilting for some time now but didn't know where to start! I'm taking a class on quiltuniversity.com that starts tomorrow and I'm sooooo excited! It's a four week class and looks awesome. I've seen work from previous students who have taken the class and I think I can do it too! At least let's hope! I know it will take LOTS and LOTS of practice but at least this class will teach me lots of good techniques! I'll keep ya'll updated with photos of my progress. I don't have any photos that relate to this topic yet, so here are some cute fabric flowers that I made!

Okay...so besides being a fabric-o-holic I kinda sorta have been hoarding all my charm packs. I love that for around $7-$8 I can get an entire line of fabric! It's just nice to say "oh yeah I have that fabric"! I may not know what I am going to do with them yet, but at least I have them right? Plus, they just look so cute sitting there on my table! Here are a few in my "collection" right now!
My newest charm pack that just came in the mail today! Plume by Tula Pink!
Here are some more Marine Corps fabric for my friend Nathan, I also have some cool American flag fabric that I forgot to put into the photo.....now I just need to get to designing the top!
My next project that I'm working on right now is with these two jelly rolls....keep looking back for sneak peaks (I'll be posting them soon)!

Things I love....
1. Pedicures...I got a pedicure today! WOO HOO....it's been a long time! I was thinking when the last time I had one was earlier today and thought it was my wedding almost three years ago (3 years in July)!! But then I remembered that I went with my sister-in-laws Rachel, Katie, and niece Rylee for Aaron and Katie's wedding in June 2008....soo instead of three years ago it was only two (which isn't as bad, but still WAY TO LONG to go without a pedicure!)

Well it's pretty much an addiction...I am REALLY into hexagons right now! I've been trying to find the right pattern for all my glorious Amy Butler fabric and I finally decided on hexagons. It really makes the fabric stand out and plus they are super fun to make! Let me know what you think!! I've made thirty hexagons today and will continue tomorrow...check back at the end of the day tomorrow for more!

Okay, so I'm totally addicted to making these little hexagons! They are super easy and I can do them ANYWHERE! I can sew them at work, in the car, while watching t.v. absolutely anywhere and they are ADDICTING!! They are great for using up all my scraps. I'm not sure what I want to do with them yet, so if anyone has any ideas please let me know!

Before I left Houston, my mom got the new 3 sister's line of fabric called Martinique by Moda!! I really liked the fabric and decided I needed some! I immediately got on my EQ6 and designed a quilt for the fabric. Here is a sneak peak of what I'm working on! Hopefully I'll have the top done after lunch today(which is currently getting fixed on the stove as we speak)!!! I will tell you that I named it Ruffle Quilt which is a hint of what is to come!!
