Fabrics for P2 Quilt-Along

Since I didn't luck out and win a gift certificate to purchase fabric... {darn it}... I will be using these puppy themed fabrics for my P2 Quilt-Along Quilt.  I think a fun puppy inspired quilt is in order to celebrate the newest family addition, Ms. T {found behind a local store in town last week}.

I had all of these in my stash except for the two fabrics in the top right of the picture {the blue nursery puppy print and the multi-dog breeds with words print}.  I am super excited to be taking part of the quilt along, and can't wait to learn new quilting skills.  I will be posting each quilt block as we go so you can keep track of my progress.

Watching the Fons and Porter on T.V. I have been learning alot, and now want to put some of those new skills into practice.  One thing they showed was a 'project sheet' to help you keep what fabric you are using where in order.  Here is my 'project sheet' for this quilt. 


Since I am not using the 'recommended' fabrics for this project, I figure a project sheet will help me dechiper the directions from week to week.  The quilt along starts Monday, March 28th, and will last 7 weeks.

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…
