Happy Birthday darling...

As you can see, my not so girly girl is pleased with her pillowcase.  I did use #18 pattern at All People Quilt and it turned out OK.  It annoys me a little that it called for such a large piece of fabric, only to chop off about 5 inches after you've finished quilting....but I should have looked over the pattern better and realized that before hand...

I quilted it in a large grid...not that you can see from the picture...but I was all ready to try Monster Teeth free motion pattern (Thanks Des!!) when this happened:

At some point, I hit the zig zag button on my sewing machine and BLAM I broke the foot.  Very discouraging to have this happen at 11 pm...
I hope this foot doesn't cost a fortune to replace...anyone know?

And just so you can all laugh WITH is my daughters birthday cake...we made the frosting ourselves and I think I didn't get it runny enough as it was a real problem to frost...but then after Coco "decorated" it with York pieces in the shape of a Pokemon it all worked out. 
(what? you don't see Raichu)

It was a great weekend.  I can't believe my baby is 6!


  1. No, not expensive! You can order them online and Leah has a video on how she recommends you alter them at the 365 Free motion project blog. Here is the link Good luck!

  2. Happy Birthday to the Miss!
    Do I spy water balloons? How awesome!

  3. What kind of machine do you have, Jenny? I have an extra FMQ foot that will go with a Brother or Baby Lock.

  4. Happy Birthday young Miss, gorgeous pillowcase and cake, but not so nice to have a broken foot. I hope it won't be too much to replace? xo

  5. Awww, what a little cutie! Looks like she had a great birthday weekend. Sorry about your foot!
