Give Away - AccuQuilt at Qubee Quilts

Okay... this weekend I am a hopeless giveaway blogger.  My apologies, LOL!  But, I found one more giveaway I have to post about.  There is another AccuQuilt Giveaway going on at Qubee Quilts.  I want an AccuQuilt so desperately that I have taken to searching (using SwagBucks of course) for AccuQuilt giveaways. 

They used the AccuQuilt with the circle die cut set at Sewing Club to create easy to position appliques.  All I can think about now is how great it would be, and how easy it would be, to use an AccuQuilt to create Holiday table scarves.  You could use these two die sets to create wonderful holiday decorations! 

How they did the applique shapes, was they used Steam-A-Seam 2 and applied it to the fabric to be cut.  Then centered the fabric under the size circle they wanted, and rolled it on through the AccuQuilt.  The way she did it there was not much fabric waste (no more than if you had been cutting the circle by hand), and the plus side was that you had the Steam-A-Seam 2 and the fabric both cut at the same time in a perfectly round circle.  How easy is that?!?!? 

By applying the Steam-A-Seam 2 to the fabric before cutting you have perfectly applied the adhesive.  Then all you need to do is peel the second side of the Steam-A-Seam 2 and place the shape where you want it.  Look at the shapes above.  How easy would it be to cut them out perfectly?  That is my point and why I am so coveting an AccuQuilt at the moment!

So, go ahead and take a moment to go enter the giveaway for your own chance to win this wonderful gizmo!

Quick Kitchen Curtain Tutorial

How comfortable with sewing are you?  Would you like to a quick and easy project that you can do yourself to create a window valance/ruffle out of any fabric you find?  Here you go!  There are only three lines of stitching in this project.  Very little measuring, and gorgeous results.

This project actually started almost two years ago, when I painted our current kitchen a pale ice blue we had left over from painting a bedroom.  To try something different, I painted the ceiling of the kitchen a deep, high-gloss navy.  You can see just a little bit of the ceiling in the finished curtain picture below.  As much as I adore the contrast in the paint colors, trying to find a ready made curtain for the kitchen has proven impossible.  Lots of kitchen curtains are to frilly, not the right color, too white, so on and so forth.  Did I mention too expensive?
So, when I brought home this fabric from Sewing Club and was trying to figure out what 'it' wanted to be, I decided it would be perfe…
