Could you "Like" or "Re-Pin" a project of mine, it would be greatly appreciated.

I made a crib organizer with removable fabric baskets and a diaper clutch out of 1 Panel of Fabric and some solids.

There are some great prizes for the winners, okay I won't win, in fact my blogging buddy is doing that with her bike quilt.

Pretty Please Pin, if you have Pinterest and maybe tell you friends about it too :)

Sea Horse mini Quilt and a Giveaway!

I made something for the Modern Mini Quilt Challenge over at Ellison Lane!

My very own Sea Horse Wall Hanging!  The Challenge...First Wall Hanging and first 3D project, so cool!
Using the Selvages and scraps leftover from making my Anchors Aweigh Quilt and my Honeycomb Pillow.
I did some organic wavy lines and other stitching to hold down the selvages on both sides, sandwiching it between a piece of batting.  Then I used up my leftover binding from making the pillow and bound the wall hanging by sewing machine.

For the seahorse I stitched up a whole bunch of little squares trying to match them up to look like this picture.
I traced this to bondaweb and then ironed it onto my fabric and cut away the extra fabrics, then I ironed the seahorse to a piece of leftover blue fabric from my quilt and did some embroidery to empasize the spines on the Seahorse.
I ironed on a piece of iron of batting and tucked the blue fabric behind it and then blanket stitched the Seahorse to the quilted selvages.
Mostly Coral color way of Salt Water with a strip of Aqua Octopus selvage

Size 12 1/2 Square and the Seahorse 2 1/2 x 6 1/2, Love the Selvages.
Now I need your help, the tail is moveable as is my "seaweed" should I have the Seahorse tail in front of behind the seaweed.
