Feeling some kind of more!!!

I was visited by the Birthday fairy over the weekend and was gifted with the Brother sewing machine that I wanted to get! I was so happy and excited to begin sewing!
So on Sunday I started working on the next nieces' quilt....but have realized that I will need to add at least 1 border (these are not sewn together, just laid out).
I asked her mother what her favorite colors are and she provided me with: black, pink, purple, blue, and green. So this is what I came up with. Unfortunately I followed the pattern wrong and sewed 5 strips together instead of just the quilt isn't very proportionate...but I will figure something out...
And last night I came across a pin on Pinterest for some coasters that I thought was absolutely adorable. I have over 111 different fabrics already cut into 2x2" squares and they were perfect for this. Unfortunately it is hard for me to give credit for the design as I can't locate the website, but it was posted by Teje Karjainen. I didn't have the colors she used, so I decided to go with some other ones.

They were done in a hurry so they are a little sloppy, but I was so excited I just couldn't stop last night and ended up finishing them. Now I want to make more, and maybe some placemats.....but do I have enough fabric to do all of that???
Oh well....I'm back to being a Happy Quilter again!
~~Happy Quilting to all of you!~~



  1. The coasters are beautiful. Particularly the one with the marguerites. Perfect for this time of year.
    I like your stripe blocks. The five colours form a nice pattern. I don't see the problem about the proportion...

  2. hooray for the birthday fairy!! Love the rail fence quilt. You could always widen it out with more blocks, or adjust the border widths. Either way, it will look great because the fabrics are so fun!

    Thank you so much for partying at Needle and Thread Thursday!
