I'm Dreaming Of A...

...DIY Christmas! I discovered Pinterest a few weeks ago, and I have been having WAY too much fun with it! I've decided I want all my presents to be DIY this year, because it's usually so much cheaper and also a lot of fun :)

Before I start, I have a couple apologies:

A History

I wanted to post the last couple projects I've worked on, because other than a secret page on Facebook they aren't documented anywhere. So the last two quilt tops I recently finished were for my niece and nephew, who are 5 and 8 respectively. I mentioned both quilts in a previous post, but I never actually posted pics of the finished tops. For my niece, I made a princess quilt with all the Disney princesses using paper piecing patterns provided for free from the very wonderful Michelle Thompson at misha29.com. She's sort of the one who inspired me to make my Inside Out characters, so I'm pretty grateful to her :) Here's the princess quilt, which I nicknamed Operation: Pretty Princess:

I'm really worried she's going to drown in it, because not only is it really big, but also I'm putting Minky on the back AND batting in the middle D: Oh well, I guess >.<

Also check out Freshly Pieced and Sew Fresh Quilts, where I posted this quilt as part of a couple linky parties! They've both got a bunch of other links featuring different people's WIPs, in case you need inspiration to finish your own ;)

So obviously, this blog kind of died. I've started making my own paper piecing patterns, though, so I'm going to try to revive it! I'm also going to post pics of all my latest projects, eventually =P To start, I'm going to add one of my own patterns: Anger from Inside Out! Here he is:

Inside Out - Anger
I'm going to work on organizing my blog and I'm using poor Anger here as my test subject. Let me know if you have any trouble with it, or if you have any questions about the pattern! I'm trying to figure out how to add color to each individual section of the pattern, but for now this will have to do.
