Local Quilt Shop Cupcake Birthday

This is my Cupcake square for the local quilt shop I go to frequently. They are celebrating their 5th birthday next month. I love this shop, the owner Linda and all the ladies that work there are very nice and will help with anything they can. They have asked their costumers to make a cupcake square and put our names on them. They will take all the squares and make a quilt to hang in the shop. I have seen some of the other cupcake squares and everyone did a great job. I will try to get a picture of the quilt when it is finished.

Oh and they also had a cute little cupcake potholder pattern I bought. I like to make different kinds of potholders. Can't wait to make this one.

Happy 5th Birthday Tomorrows Quilt
I hope you have many many more birthdays.

Rag Quilting Question

I am off work today so I am trying to catch up on my blogging.

I have fallen in love with rag quilts. They are easy and when you are finished you are having to get anything machine quilted...great gifts to give.
I have only made one so far...but want to make many more. I got interested in them when my Aunt passed away and she had alot of bluejeans and blue jean dresses. I asked my uncle if I could have them so I could make a few blue jean quilts. I got looking around at different ideas for some quilt with bluejeans and came across the rag quilts. I am still trying to get all the jeans and dresses cut out into squares. I had bought some jean material from hobby lobby several years ago to make me a dress and never did. I picked up some pretty flower and pink material and made this rag quilt. I did put flannel in the middle for batting so it is a little heavy but mighty warm.

The next rag quilts I want to make are going to made out of all flannel. They look so pretty.
The local quilt shop Tomorrows Quilts I go to in Waco has some flannel rag quilts on display. Linda the owner just started selling the Accuquilt Go fabric cutter She used the accuquilt rag quilt dye to cut out those rag quilts. I have been looking into buying the accuquilt go. Does anyone have one and have you used the rag quilt dyes? How much do you like the Accuquilt? I would appreciate any feedback on it.
When I do a flannel rag quilt I will post some pics.

Changing to Fall

Fall is in the air. I have woke up several mornings (I get up at 3:15 am on work days) this past few weeks and I can just feel Fall coming. Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love the colors and the cool air...not to hot and not to cold.
I haven't been on my blog for a while. My husband had foot surgery and I have been busy with all kind of other things. I have been trying to get some sewing done. I will post some pics soon of what I have been working on.
Oh school started. This is my granddaughters last year in Jr high and my grandson is in kindergarten.
Here is a first day of school pic.

I hope everyone had a good Labor day.
