Sunny Side Up and Dogs. :)

I found this Sunny Side Up fabric when I was at Fabric Depot last summer. I bought a yard of it and figured I'd make a quilt someday. When I got home, I realized I hadn't bought enough of this egg cuteness. So, I ordered more and finally got it out and made this quilt. I call it "sunny side up". :) The "egg" blocks are Greek Cross or Churn Dash blocks. I like making them since they're pretty easy. I quilted the egg blocks in a random little scrambled stitching. I quilted little suns on the big blocks.


































I had some fabric left over and I didn't want it to go to waste, so I decided to dig out my BH&G Quilts and More to find Monica's (yeah, I'm name-dropping. She's a famous magazine contributor) pattern for a super easy pockety bag. Here is my version of her wonderful bag. I'll be using it and making everyone jealous. :) I might have to get more of this darling fabric and make a few more. Hey, Monica, I LOVE this pattern. I made my bag bigger just to use up all the egg fabric. :)










My friend Lacey asked if I would make a quilt to raffle off for the Boxer Dog club. I said yes. I've known about it for a long time, but she just reminded me the other day that she needed it on the 1st of Jan. I work better under pressure. I started this Thursday, finished it Friday, sent it Saturday and it arrived at her house yesterday (Monday). :) Whew! Now I have to find something else to work on. I have a few ideas. Keep watching! :)

That Sunny Side Up quilt is adorable! OMG I love it. How clever of you to make the Churn Dash blocks - they look like little eggs. And the bag is awesome, too. What great fabric and what great things you did with it.

Sunny Side Up is so adorable! And I love the egg fabric, and I LOVE that you used it to make the supersized pockety (love your word) bag. HEY... you need to put your giant pincushion chicken inside your egg bag!

Hugs and Love and Happy New Year Chickie!
