{fun friday WINNER! + some black and white fun!!}


YAY!! It's friday!! And we have a winner of the giveaway!!

just to remind you of what was won…


and our winner is SANDYB!! 

Watch that email box, Sandy!!


So for fun Fridays today, I wanted to show you a video of this very cool table setting that my mom and I are creating, but we aren't creating it until this afternoon!! So, I'm going to post it on Monday…

but I am going to give you a few sneaky peeks of what we are using to create a Valentine's Black and White Elegant Brunch Table!!


Remember this pic from Monday? Well, all week, I've been busy creating with them:


I can't remember where I saw this block!! (too much blog hopping, I guess!) But I loved it, so I checked my little cheater quilt book that explains how to size quarter-square triangles and half-square triangles and went to town!!

This block happened as an oops, but a good oops!! 🙂 (sewing fast = not really matching up seams…no quilt police comments, please! LOL!!)


This was another oops block, but it's very cool, too, i think!! Serendipity is my friend this week!

and I put them together with some other blocks and got this…


I love large meandering (stippling) for the quilting!



Doesn't this block look great quilted?? This, my friends, is why i love quilting!! The finished product!! ♥


So I also made these little dumpling bags for everyone's place setting. I personalized them (with a big shot alpha die! yay!!!) and added some red in there to match our plates…you are going to love seeing the whole table, I know you are!!


I got the FREE tutorial for this bag HERE at Keyka Lou's blog! Thanks, Keyka Lou!!


Mom is going to fill with them with a sweet surprise!! Soooo fun!!!


The last thing I sewed for the table was ruffles on the napkins! 


Nothing better than a ruffler foot that makes work take a second!!

Be sure and check back here on Monday to see the whole table put together. It's going to be very pretty!! You just can't go wrong with black and white with a pop of red!! 

I also will be posting my Project Quilting challenge#3 quilt on Sunday…that will be exciting!! you will be very inspired by it, i'm sure!! ♥

happy crafting this weekend…and get inspired today!!

    I didn’t notice my initial on any of the bags. I guess that means I’m not invited, but I’m enjoying seeing all of the lovely things you created. I can’t wait to see the final table setting.

    Thank you so much! I just love the black and white fabric. I am trying to get an inspiration of something to make with it because it truly jumps out at me. I usually like color and more color but there is something about this black and white that I really like.

    Again thank you!
