Esther @ ipatchandquilt put out a call for pattern testers
for her new pattern called
"Honey Honey"
Its a paper pieced honeycomb pattern...its very cool!
I did the 20" pillow size...heres the front...

It was a pretty straightforward and easy pattern to do.
She has great instructions and shading on her
pattern pieces that really help the process
go more smoothly.  
Thanks for letting me test this for you Esther!

A super cute finish!

So one of my bosses at work is a new Grandma, so the girls I work with put me to work making a quilt for the new grandbaby....thing is, its a girl and since her daddy is a firefighter, they wanted a girly firetruck/fire fighter themed quilt...took a little bit of thinking on my part, but after finding this great paper piecing pattern on Craftsy from "Quiet Play", I had an idea in my head and I was all set!!

A Pink & Purple Firetruck!

                                       with a cute little gal driving!!

It turned out so amazingly cute, she was so please with it!
Stella Jane was born just a few days later
and they have decided to use this
quilt as a wallhanging..perfect!!
