My FAVORITE flip flops in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD!


I live only one mile from my local quilt store. But last week I went shopping in north Atlanta at another fun store tinystitches. While in there I found this book. It has the neatest ideas. My eyes were drawn to the red and aqua flip flops and instantly knew I had to make a set for myself!!! I am in love with them and keeping them forever. So, for a summer display on one of my tables, Madi and I thought this little quilt, a pitcher full of homemade pinwheels and a yummy strawberry candle would be so fun. I should be packing, cleaning and getting ready to move to Korea but instead I am quilting and now wanting to make the pinwheels.





Here is Madi with her aqua feet :-) We just made the footprints, stitched around them, knotted some ribbon and stitched it to the fabric, hot glued the flowers, Madi signed it and then I quilted it. Go luck at that book. In the fall I want to make the spider and maple leaf.

jeni! You slay me with these super cute ideas. I think I'm going to have to dust that machine off... I LOVE this project.

That is one of the cutest quilt ideas I've seen! We keep getting distracted with playing instead of packing boxes which is not good since we have only one week left.

Miss Madi's blue feet look so cute in that pic... I had to blow it up to see her facial expression!
What an adorable quilt. I think you and M's display idea for it will be superb!
Hope the packing is going well. How long until the movers head your way? I think taking breaks from the 'work' side of moving is a good thing and this was that perfect break for you!
Good luck with it all!

Jeni, you are so so talented and creative! One of my biggest regrets is that I didn't learn how to sew...my sweet grandmother always tried to teach me and I was such a stubborn kid! Love Madi's blue feet...she's so cute!
