Some Sewing In Texas

Nicole is such a great friend, she took quite some of her spare time to resize the pics of my camera and mail them to me! Girl you rock!!!

Before I went on vacation I have asked Nicole if she likes those lampions and if she is interessted in to sew one. I have received the pattern from Baloo a member of the Quiltfriends - big THANK YOU.

here is a pic of some simple lampions made by members of the Quiltfriends

I want mine to match the colors of my livingroom, so I went with blue and green fabrics

Nicole picked colors to fit to her daughters room

we started with the zigzag border - it took quite some time to make those

 Antonio, he kept us company this one evening - and no he´s not buzzed ;-)

Nicoles is one the left and mine is on the right - nope we dont really have an idea why we have different sizes. The pattern was in cm and we only had inch-rulers and mat - propably the mix-up happened at the conversion

all the parts

can you tell that it was quite a bit windy in TX?

this ist the best pic with a second of almost no wind

The following pics I had to borrow from Nicole - somehow I dont have them. Nicole had a cord with light attachment in reserve and look what the lampions look like when they are glowing ;-)

I think we did a great job!!!

Those are fabulous! Where did you find the pattern? I'm thinking those would be fun to stitch up for my daughter's dorm room. What sort of cord-light did you use?
