Friendship Circles and Give Away!

Since my new line is all about heart and soul sisters, I wanted to create part of a double wedding ring style quilt, with just two rings.  I used my Sizzix Big Shot Pro to cut out the rings.  They are 9" wide.  I can save the inner circles for another project, and frankly, the outer portions as well.  All of the fabrics in this project were fused with Mistyfuse.

I think these make a nice combo.  The hot pink swirl and the line green triangles.  They kinda remind me of my childhood bedroom color scheme.  I made one slice in the green, so I could intertwine the circles.


Heart and Soul Sisters in the 'Daisy' colorway!  You can click on it to see it larger.  Here is the give away scoop.  Would you like to win a fat quarter bundle of this new line?  Just leave a comment on what you would like to make with the fabric, and I will choose a winner with the random number generator. Deadline is Monday, December 15th at midnight pacific standard time.  We have a winner.  71 comments and number 4 from the Random Number Generator is the winner!  Rhoda Forbes!

The girl grid fit perfectly into the outer circle, and a 3 grid pattern with the heart fit in the middle.

Both girls - 2 different ones

Now for the fun part of adding the words from the text fabric.  The phrases were already there.  I just cut them out individually, so I could lay them out on the circles.
I decided on an orange/tangerine background, which is not part of the line, but is a Hoffman batik.  Using the hearts from the grid fabric, I thought that adding them to the inner corners would give the piece balance.
I used a combination of grid fabrics and blenders to finish out the quilt. All of those little squares have my drawings in them, as well as, the blenders.  This was made on a wool blended felt foundation in black, and backed with the same in pink.  It is made by National Nonwovens #T0Y002No batting, no binding.  You can click on it to see it larger.

  3. That is such fun fabric and I love the piece you made with it. I love the idea of making something fun for my daughter but also thinking how fun this would be to make a charity quilt for a teen in the hospital, a wonderful way to cheer them up and lift their spirits.

  14. Hi Jamie... I have the most beautiful granddaughter adopted four years ago from an orphanage in Guatemala. She is bright and fun, and taking gymnastics and loves it! My son and his wife tried fourteen years to have their own child and about a third of the way through the adoption proces, found out they were expecting. A beautiful, small fragile blonde angel girl and if you ever saw two SOUL SISTERS, these two are the ones. This is a perfect line to create a small quilt for each of them. This art quilter Gramma would love to do that for Zara and Maria. So very special these girls.

  24. I love your Soul Sisters fabric and would enjoy making a quilt for my younger sister.

Maybe this would be a good together project.
