Back to School... Time to Sew!

I want to start off my congratulating all the moms out there with kiddos in school.  WE DID IT!!!!  We made it through another summer with our kids and they are still alive.  I don't know about you, buy I really LOVE my kids.  But I also love dropping them off at school with their shiny new backpacks, ready to learn... and then heading to Starbucks with my BFF to enjoy a cup of coffee without anyone needing anything from us :)
Here's a peak of my little angels starting the first day of school - my oldest started middle school and was too cool to let us walk her in :(
Well, now that the formalities of the "posting-of-the-first-day-of-school-pics" is over, it's time to get down to business.  We now have 9 months of "free" time - yes, we should probably be doing laundry, cleaning something, or other chores.  But let's face it, we would rather be sewing ;)
This is your formal invitation to "SHOW US WHAT YOU HAVE MADE"!!!!  We would LOVE to see our Facebook wall covered with pictures of what you have made - whether is be quilts, crafts, or anything else using Moda fabric, "Say it With Words" panel, or any of our other amazing products.  Make sure you share our Facebook page with all your friends, too, so they can see your creations as well.

Our newest quilter, Claire

Below is the story (short as it may be), written by my 11 year old about making her first quilt.
One day, I made the mistake of saying "I'm bored" at my Granny's (Karen) house.  It was the 4th of July.  She gave me some grid and charm packs and told me I was going to make a quilt.  It took forever, but I was so happy to finish it.  I love how soft it is!  Sincerly, Claire - The 11 Year old Seamstress.
Here are some pictures along the way.
 Pressing it all down
Got it all laid out and pressed!
 Time to start sewing
And, here's the completed picture!!!

Now, because summers get crazy and the school year is even crazier, she didn't get much of a chance to work on it.  That's why it took her until this summer to get it finished.  But I'm so proud of her.  She did the quilting and even the hand-sewn binding.  I guess it will soon be time for her to start another project... but I bet she never tells her Granny she is bored again ;)

~Happy Sewing!
