Stocking Up on Cards

I haven't been sewing, but I haven't been completely abandoning crafts. I made a batch of cards for some upcoming birthdays, a few thank you notes, and some other "hello" cards. This one is a first birthday card and it is my favorite of the bunch. I love the colors.

This was a mini-project for my aunt. I had some leftover fabric from the pot holders I made for her, so I wanted to make something else. I had used this design for one of my QBP blocks and I really liked it; however, I thought it would look better on a smaller scale, and I do like them better this size. Since they're only about 4.5", I only quilted the wings.

Green Dragonfly

I made this for my mom last year and sent it off without taking a picture, so I rectified that while I was home last week.

I was working with leftovers from a larger project, so I had to piece the back, but I like the effect.

Cathedral Windows 8

The last set! I finished these the night before we left for vacation. Joann's was having a 4th of July sale that started that day, so I ran over right after work to get the sale price on fat quarters, threw them in with the last load of laundry, and had just enough enough time to stitch in the last two new fabrics!

The blue and the green blocks were already ready to be sewn.

I added the blue and green fabrics to this one to finish it.

Now I can start joining them. I just have to determine how "charming" I want it to be. There are already a few duplicates (two of my favorite fabrics and some of the pieced squares), so the fabrics won't all be different. I don't want to duplicate all the fabrics, but I know I'm not patient enough to wait for that many new fabrics!
