Making a Fuss

by Nicole

I’m having fun playing around with the Children at Play collection.  With all the cute images, it’s as if the fabric was made for fussy cutting.

I fussy cut the squares that will be the center of the Megan’s Star block. I’m going to make 12 blocks – 6 of them will be the girls playing.

I was going to do 6 blocks with the blue squares of the the girls’ clothes…

but then I found this fabric at my LQS this weekend. So I’ll be adding in these two girls.

I couldn’t resist fussy cutting a little bit more for the triangles. These triangles might be my favorite part of the quilt!

I ordered a few more prints from the collection, so now I must be patient and wait for the UPS guy to knock at my door.

By the way, if you’d like a chance to win an EZ Dresden ruler and haven’t yet entered my giveaway, click here. You’ve got until today at 9 p.m. EST! Good luck!

I pulled this from my stash to play with this summer and then got stuck. Fussy cutting! (Sometimes I'm a bit slow…)

"Just Stay Little" brings a couple tears to my eyes. My baby just graduated high school and now all three children are oh so grown. Lol, they haven't left home yet, but no more "little" ones here. That quilt is going to be so very sweet. I do have grans that need quilts! Lol!

Oh those last two girls are adorable! And what a great idea to do some fussy cutting for the corner triangles. I kept getting a bit muddled up with my corners when I used this block but I got there in the end!

Really adorable! I love all the fussy cutting, especially those little red shoes.

Great fussy cutting! I loved the boys prints on this line too! Just stay little. On my big boy's seventh birthday, that is particularly meaningful! 😉
