It is my day for Bowls with Borders!
I challenged myself to only use my stash to create this project. Originally I was going to make a table runner for a gift, but realized that wouldn't work. Duh! Ruins the surprise to blog about a gift! So I dug out my scraps from some recent projects. I also had planned to resize the pattern larger. However I forgot and printed it as is, so decided I needed to not waste the paper and do it as originally printed.
From the scraps I used can you tell what my favorite colors are? I slightly altered the paper pieced pattern. The pattern had a band of color across each bowl. I decided to make the bowls in one fabric.
I machine quilted the stripe I left off at the top of the bowls. As you can see Denyse Schmidt is one of my favorite fabric designers.
I inserted squares folded in half into triangles into the corners to create a hanger. I plan on hanging it in my kitchen .
I took these pictures in my parents beautiful backyard. As you can see my dad's cat Jasmine (la princessa) is a ham. Take out a camera and she will pose. But she tricked me. I wanted her to take a picture with my quilt.
But she wouldnt let me get close with the quilt.
And I tried.
But this was the best she would let me do.
Hence why she is Jazzy-girl aka Jasmine aka la princessa!

All the blocks will be posted on

And she's getting better at letting me take her picture.
