Here are my little sandwiches that you have to assemble. A top a middle and a bottom! There is green flannel in the middle....
Next I had to figure out my pattern for my four block.....it sounds easy enough....but you're doing what they called backwards sewing...and that's way more difficult than you think......LOL
That's my little demon helper there in the picture...boy did she have fun...and she was pretty cute doing it.....lol
Then you sew all of those squares together with the solid squares and you get this!
Last but not least you sew all of those strips together and get the almost finished product......After cutting the back of your quilt to shreds and washing and drying it....you come out with this beautiful rag quilt...pure craziness....and probably the best project yet!!
I love them....................

So now that you've caught your breath!! Here's my copycat story...she decided today was the day for her to use her Organza, and make a cute tutu for her little princess!! And it's adorable! Perfect fall colors! and it's shiny! Which I think it awesome! So here's a pic of her little princess modeling!!! You can go check out her blog here: www.tryingsewhard.blogspot.comSo I decided I might as well make one too. I was going to have Madison be a polka dot witch for Halloween so I bought all this really cute black and orange tulle! Well that plan fell through, so now I have almost 10 yards of black and orange tulle....plus I got a piece of sheer black cat fabric from the remnant bin at Joann's. It's awesome...So I needed to do something with that too! So here it is....it's been a hell of a day, but I made time for this. My model is MIA today. She's come down with a stomach bug today and is puking everywhere...niiice right? I'm sure you wanted to know that. Needless to say the only pics I have are done on my dining room table...this thing is ginormous! and I loooove it! So....here it is!It's huge! And I don't think the pictures do it any justice at all...the colors are awesome.... and possibly a little tacky....but I've seen them selling for over $50....sooooo...maybe one day I'll make and sell stuff, but for now, I'm just going to keep making Little Miss Madi stuff! Until next time!
