A Zippity Doo Dah Weekend!

Good morning and a happy March to all of you. I hope your weekend was filled with lots of fun and enjoyment. I worked all weekend, but I have to admit my work is fun. I started 2 quilts for the shop. I finished one of them Saturday night. It's from the children's book Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? by Eric Carle for Andover Fabrics. It turned out really cute. The kits are all put together and ready to go at the store. The second quilt is from the book, Piece of Pie, Layer Cake Friendly Quilt Patterns put out by some friends of mine, Brenda and Bonnie Bailey at They live in Fountain Green. I'm making it from the cute Zippity Doo Dah! line from Sandy Gervais. I am constantly at awe of designers who come up with new designs that are fresh and inspiring over and over. Sandy is one of my favorite designers.

Floating Square is the name of the pattern, this book really has some fun ways to use layer cakes. I highly recommend this book if your struggling with layer cakes. And another plus of the book, they share some yummy recipes for every pattern.

Piece striping in the works! (Yikes) Who wouldn't have a Zippity Doo Dah day with this going on! The colors just put a smile on your face and a spring in your step. I should have this finished up by Wednesdays "SEW" & Tell. Have a Zippity Doo Dah day. Shannon

Those look so cute. i might just have to stop in and see them in person. Are you working your regular days this week? Will the Eric Carle quilt be up? Want to see this in person. Oh I ended buying some fabric online. Asked my partner and she told me she does it all the time. I used I have not received it yet. They had free shipping if you bought $35.00, boy that was a no brainer. See ya later in the week.
