lets go fly a kite.......

little did I know when I bought this template
how much I would use it
and that isnt even the whole thing!
Have not even explored yet the side pieces to make the quilt
it is intended for LOL

one of my nieces.......
who name I wont mention

but this little bear that she made
many years ago will 

well she is a sweetie pie and is engaged 
to be married
he proposed on vacation 
at Disney in front of the castle
how sweet

Dunkin, I am trying to tell a story.......

anyway, I had made her a Christmas table topper 
for her apartment year before last
and she loved it
she also told her sister that she was jealous
that I was making a topper a month
for my sister in law
that is the plan

this was one from last year experimenting with the large and small size

as I cut and clean up
I am cutting out kites if the fabric size allows
and when I find some that "fit" a month
I am sewing them into the topper
as I have time I will back and quilt them up
I used to do 3 at a time
when I was making them for SIL
so may do that again

 anyway I made this one
because I liked the colors together
kind of a non traditional Valentine one
ya think?
if not she could surely use it for summer as well.......
debating whether I should make up 3
and mail them off as a surprise
for Jan-Mar (of course Jan is almost done but what can I do)

these little buggars are so addictive to make
I want to find some fabrics that
were my Moms too
it would be Brits grandmothers
the girls were all born after my Mom passed
and she wanted grandkids so so bad.
we will see how I do.......

Pretty fabrics. I am with you. I bought Valentine's themed fabric to make some kite table toppers too.
