one last quilt to share....

So, yesterday I shared with you four different quilts using my PIES AND POINTS Sizzix Die. One of the comments was from Julie, saying, "I love the basket quilt, with the flowers under the handle and the striped mitered border! But there is something about the fabrics used for the baskets....I see bikini bottoms! Especially the polka dot one! So, there is another possible use for your new die set!!!"

Well, that could not have been said any better, as I and a few of my friends had a few good laughs as we too, thought that... And, well, when I have an idea, I usually run with it, because why not? 
It's a challenge, and it's kind of a FUN challenge!

So off I went...
Yes, I did...
I made the Panties quilt... 

In fact, it is a timeline of panties through the years...
Follow along now... And have a little fun with me.  

L TO R:  RUFFLE panties! We star out with those darling ruffles, and move on to the DAYS OF THE WEEK panties... Then we get into those cute BOY CUT SHORTS ( waist band says Victoria's Secret of course) then,
we get sweet with "pretty" BUTTERFLY panties... Sometimes we have  "ANTS IN YOUR PANTS" (note fabric choices) and if your a bit naughty, "LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE.."
Next comes the HOT PANTS, ( hot sauce and sequins written HOT across the back), and sometimes we feel a little FOXY...  To be a bit SWEET, the next pair has chocolates on them... ( edible perhaps?)

Then we might get the Animal prints out when feeling sassy, GRRRAWL! or perhaps the LACY ones, or maybe even a THONG...(that is often short lived) 
We all know the HIGH RISE ( NYC BUILDING fabric)  ones are more comfortable... Then there is always that SUNDAY BEST pair, the Hole-y ones you just can't throw away, with the elastic falling off... and lastly, all in fun, because sometimes, you just have to 
PUT ON YOUR BIG GIRL PANTIES, and get the job done...


The best part of the project, was gathering trims and details to tell the story. To really look at the shapes of my die to see what else can be done with them, sometimes takes me on interesting journeys... I try to make products where you can do multiple variations in interesting ways. Sometimes one's imaginations go to the extreme, but hey, it's all in fun, and quilting is fun! 
Each quilt is an adventure...

Thank you to Mandy Leins for quilting it for me so fast, when my long arm broke down last week... 

I had so much fun making this quilt, it got me out of my box, it made me think in a different order or ideas. Looking at my fabrics that helped share the story, finding trims to make the quilt look great, and keeping it sweet and light hearted...

And I had a good laugh or two... Laughter is good. ;-)

The new Sizzix dies will be in stock during the summer....Items will be added to my shop soon.
I did get a few more templates added to my website store before I left... 

Hop over to the shop to check out the new products.
