A Nail polish PP block

Some months ago I dreamed I make a present for a lady that cares about my nails.
What was  it?
A pouch with a nail polish.
Drawn by hand and sewn for 2 hours. What I have done.

The nail polish paper pieced block

I wander if there will be interest if I  make the PDF pattern and upload for FREE.
Here you can find on CRAFTSY.

The Christmas tree #2

Oh, Christmas tree!
The song is so beautiful! Hope the new paper pieced block is so lovely as the song.
I am proud to introduce my new pattern after some month silence.
For ETSY lovers and for CRAFTSY addicted. :)

The pattern is very ""flexible".
If make the last piece in the down section the same color as the background you will have different block.
Easy to sew even for beginner. You can use foundation method or freezer paper. Fast and funny to make.
Chose different colors for different look.

You are right to ask about Number one.
Here it is on ETSY or CRAFTSY.

Frame a quilt in a box

There are many ways to display a quilt - the most common way with a sleeve on the back, with triangle pieces at the upper corners, on a canvas on a frame.
This time I will show you how to use a box as a frame. There are many sizes in IKEA. Or you could order different size.

The first step  when you have already a box is to mark the place of the quilt on the "bottom" of the box. Simply use a pencil to mark the four corners.
Then drill two small holes inside the mark at the first corner..

Proceed with the next corners.

Sew the quilt at the four corners with coordinating thread and tie on the back.

Easy, don't you think?
