Playing with Power Pop

Remember a couple of days ago, I showed you my winnings from Brooke? Lovely large pieces of Power Pop!

I cut them into strips of varying widths, and I am sewing them together in a (sort of) random fashion. You know, kinda like when you are sewing string blocks . . . you reach into the tub or baggie and if you don't like the looks of what you get the first time, you dig in again! (Wink)

Well, I reached over to grab another strip and it tugged back!!

I dunno. Do you think he's hit the terrible twos early? (Grin)  He was having a blast playing in the Power Pop! Hey, I don't blame him --- there have been some lines of fabric that I would definitely like to play in!

Here is a peek at my project before I had to take a time out to deal with Padsworth:

Speaking of playing games, Padsworth just reminded me that it's time to call some Bingo words for you special peeps that are playing Bingo with us this May!

Here you go!


Be sure to go by and see Vrooman's Quilts, Crafty Sewing and Quilting, and Hillbilly Handiworks, to get the rest of your words for the day. And if you think you have a win, check out the Bingo page on Hillbilly Handiworks, to find out what you need to do to claim a prize!

Good luck! I'm off to play with Power Pop (and Padsworth) again!

I'm linking up today with Rebecca Lynne, at the Thursday Think Tank -- I'm thinking about how I'm going to free motion quilt this runner!  I'm also linking up with Thursday Favorite Things!
And, last but not least, I'm linking up with Marcia, over at the May for Me linky party!



  1. Stephen thought that froggy was silly to play in the fabric. :)

  2. You go Padsworth. I hope you had fun with the fabric and that you were able to get the combination right so that the quilt suits your taste.
    Now, for a bit of a favour - do you think that you could try to pull some of my words out of the hat tomorrow. I have three cards and got one word today. This is better than yesterday when I got none but tomorrow it would be nice to get one word on each card!!
    I am partial to FROG!!! Just a thought. :D
    Enjoy the rest of your day.

  3. HEhe I know where that fabric came from... I love seeing where it heads after it leaves my shop... :)

  4. LOL!!! That Padsworth is so silly!! I love those colors in Power Pop.

  5. Enjoy your day of play - random strips of such pretty fabrics is so worth is.

  6. Did I read you right?'re cheating? Well, sometimes we just must cheat! Gotta be happy in the end. Padsworth is trying to help you to not choose the wrong fabric strip at the wrong time. Listen to the frog, he knows! Really pretty fabrics you are working with.

  7. Oooh, that's purty.

    Padsworth! Get outta there!!

  8. It looks like your joint effort is going to be fab!

  9. Oooooh I fell in love with that fabric when I first saw it. It's sooooooooo pretty. I just bought some myself about 3 weeks ago along with some other stuff.

    And yay ~ I matched one word from your list today.

  10. Hi! I am visiting via Katherine's hop. Thanks so much for stopping by and following my blog. Hope you enjoyed the visit. Donna

  11. I really like the look of the fabric sewn in strips. Very nice.

  12. Those fabrics rock! What a perfect name for them... And to have such a helper, you can't lose! Thanks for linking to Thursday Think Tank! Rebecca
