One Thing : One Week Challenge

So Amy at Amy's Creative Side issued a challenge last week to complete one thing on our sewing to do list. I gladly accepted as there were quite a few things piling up for me to get done. So for the challenge I took on finishing my quilt top that has been taking me weeks to get to. I also took on a secret challenge, but didn't type it at Amy's website as I didn't want to put it out there until I knew the results, (Ya, basically I was chicken).

So, Here is the results of my first challenge! Yippee Skipee, I am so excited! I designed this myself and am really happy with the results. I am making a similar one in blue. (Ya, I am still secretly hoping for a set of boy and girl twins :)



So onto my secret challenge for myself. Last week I submitted three of my quilt designs to the Moda Bake Shop to see if they would accept them so that I could design projects for their blog. And guess what, I found out yesterday that all 3 were accepted!!!! I am going to be featured at the Moda Bake Shop with my very own quilt designs. It will be a little bit before one goes up as the designs were in Excel and now they have to be made and a tutorial of the process, so stay tuned. I will make sure to put a big post the day my first one goes up! Ahhh!! I am just so excited I just screamed!
Pin It!
