Nothing until you combine them in this creative way. See this adorable project Suzan H. of Torrance, CA made.

She writes, “Thanks for the nice wildflower fabric."

Then she goes on to say, "I found some old 1950 dollhouse furniture

and some small stuffed rabbits so I made a rabbit house. The rabbits live in a burrow. under a field of wildflowers. One side is the ‘room’ layout the other side is a wildflower field.

I also made a bag to keep the rabbits in and a bag for odd bits of dishes. Hope this amuses you it’s lovely fabric.”

I think this is a wonderful project in which young kids (and the young at heart) could spend hours playing and developing their imagination. Just think if you’re a mother (or father, or grandmother, or just a crafty friend), what a great gift this would be.

Suzan used the fabric from CCQ and some of her own and went to town (or to the rabbit’s house).

On another note, tomorrow’s Tuesday’s Tip Blog will show the many uses of pipe cleaners of all things.  They are not just craft projects for children-see how they can benefit quilters too.

Quilty Quote of the Week:

 how-we-rise-to-a-challenge-multi

Anne W. of Denver, CO made the masks with many of the fabrics she purchased from CCQ.  Thanks Anne!  She's inspired me to use my messy stash on the right.  Believe it or not, I have a new lecture for guilds called "SOS: Studio Organizing Solutions ".  I was able to clean up the stash to get pictures for the lecture.

If you like what you’re seeing feel free to read more blogs and tutorials or sign up for the Quilters’ Club (aka newsletter) to be in the know.  Better yet browse the fabrics and see what project you can conjure up.

If you have a comment or idea on bringing children’s toys together with fabric, we’d like to hear about it.

Happy Quilting, Jackie
