A Few Stars

Rock PurslaneI don’t always get to see what happens to my patterns and freebies. Nor do I get to hear about all the people who have found inspiration here. So, it’s great fun when I do. I may be the one running this show, but it’s not about me. If I’m doing things right, I’m just providing the catalyst for your creative fun. Today I want to point you to three people who have done some wonderful things with what they’ve found here.

First up, and these are in no particular order, is Aby. She has already made a quilt using my Controlled Chaos block in Quiltmaker’s 100 Block. Click here to go to her blog and see what she’s done with it.

Next is my blog buddy, Jessie of Messy Jesse. You need to spend some time reading through her blog. She’s been making adorable mini quilts and getting up to all sorts of things that will make you smile. Her latest post has an adorable pin cushion from my  Trellis Flowers block pattern. I love the boxed ends she made! It gives the sides so much character. You can find her fabric shop, Sew and Quilt, here.

And then there’s my blog buddy, Cindy, who has taken my advice to listen to the fabric to a whimsical place. She also used embellishments on her bag and the end result is perfect for the recipient of this fun gift.

If you have projects you’ve made, either from my patterns and freebies or something here that sparked creative inspiration, I’d love to see it. You can always send me photos or just drop me a note at melissa(at)100billionstars(dot)com.

Have a great Friday!

    You are SO sweet!!! I can’t even begin to tell you how much of an inspiration you have been to me. Remember….I used to only follow pattern directions to a tee. NOW….I can get all kinds of ‘crazy’ just on my own. LOL But that truly is ALL thanks to you! You have a gift, Melissa, and you use it well!
