12 x 12–Favorite expressions theme

I had a hard time coming up with an expression I could translate into fabric!  I wanted to do “You can’t make a silk purse from a sow’s ear” and even had some purse fabric on hand.  But when I tried to make my sow’s ear from fleece (new purchase), I decided to look for an easier expression.  It’s a bit hard to see but I liked my op art idea for “Just Do It.”  You can see from the back, I did the first Nike logo backwards on my Heat n Bond 🙂

Karen chose “Chill Out Dude” for her expression.

Diane’s favorite expression is one everyone needs to remember.

Linda’s depiction of her favorite is so cute.  She even included some eggs!

Kathy also chose some chicken expressions.  Is her fabric perfect or what?

Melinda used real candy wrappers for her “Gimme Some Sugar.”   She claims they were not the easiest sewing she ever did.

Vicki’s expression is from her wedding invitation which made for an elegant quilt.

And Bonnie used some cute cow fabric as inspiration for her expressions.

Only one theme to go!  Can hardly believe this 2-year project is drawing to a close.

    Just do it, huh? I always think what I would do when you post these results….. My favorite quote is “Bloom where you are planted”. That would be a fun one to do.

    These are just great, Carol! There’s so much work, inspiration, and fun here! Thanks for posting them all. Two years…wow! Time flies–that would be a fun one to do!

  3. I’d have had a tough time trying to come up with an expression. You all did a great job.
