I not only finished the top row on the Souvenir Top, I decided it needed to be longer--I do struggle with square quilts! lol  I have the pieces cut to make the same sashing and row of pinwheels to the top of the quilt also. A very enjoyable few hours. 
Then for fun, I made a Pop-Up from the FatQuarterShop
  Chris had highlighted this project on her blog 
and it intrigued me into a purchase!  
The sewing was pretty straight forward;  I liked the way FQS sent along the coil, the elastic, a label and excellent instructions!
See--it shrinks down like one of the net hampers 
that were popular for a while decades ago!
Remove the elastic and the little 'thread bin' pops right back up to full height!  I ordered the small size and wouldn't want one any larger--this is perfect to fold up and back for sewing away from home.


  1. The Florida quilt just keeps getting better and better!
    I have never seen a pop up before. That is so cool. I can see where they would come in handy.

  2. Your quilt is gorgeous - love the pinwheels. The pop up is so clever.

  3. That pop up is really unusual. I've never seen one either and imagine it could be very handy. But that quilt. I absolutely love it. The colors are wonderful and the whole thing just says "Florida" like the souveniors of days gone by.
    Blessings and hugs,

  4. The quilt was already pretty, but those borders give it the “wow” factor it needed! Love the pop-up thing; it’s very handy and it’s so fun in that novelty fabric!

  5. Yours is perfect!!! I need to get another coil to make one for my retreat roommate! Love the pinwheels you added to the quilt.

  6. The flamingo fabric is adorable as is the little pop-up. It’s perfect for sewing retreats. I’m not a fan of square quilts either. I like how you’re adding length.

  7. Fun projects! I really love that quilt.

I brought these blocks home leftover from a quilt Mom had made several years ago.  It will make a nice table topper for her.   I will be lay...
