Thoughtful Thinking Thursday #115 ~ Decorating for You?

I've decided my decorating style in my home is called, "Homey Memories."

There have been times when I've been and seen other homes that are impressive
and think I must purge more.
I've gotten down to the items that have a LOT of memories.
Everything once belonged to family like my grand parents, parents, children, uncles, aunts and such,
or was given to me as a gift especially from Mr. G,
or acquired on special trips especially long road yard sales with Mr. G.
My house is a museum to me.
Just when I wonder if it's cluttered too much,
someone like the HVAC Maintenance guy walks through the house,
stops and says,
"I like the homey feel of your house."
I tell him I think it's cluttered and he says,
 "Oh no, you have everything arranged to make a person stop and look and wonder."
Then I realize once again, "That was my goal."
Do you decorate to impress someone else or yourself?
"THINK about it."
Nothing in the picture above was bought on a shopping trip for decorating.

Upcycled Housecoat Gift Tags

     As promised from last week's Tuesday Tutorial Teaser, here is what I used the tiny scraps leftover from the Upcycled Housecoat Gift Bag project.

 Simple shapes were free form cut from the scraps.
Tag board sheets were cut to desired gift tag size.
One stitching line was used.
 A hole was punched so tag could be tied onto gift bags.

 You'll find this post at several Linky Parties
Please check them out for some great ideas.

Quilt Shot Block #102~ Joy's Parcheesi Game Block

Joy's Parcheesi Game Block
a part of the Game Quilt
about 34 inches square.
The different games were sketched out and planned, but still some "wing-it-as-you-go" happened.
Each square represented 2 inch blocks so as not to be too oversized,
and to make math easier.

 Made sure 2 pieces next to each other were not alike.
Moved sections to the machine via rotating mat.
 To make up for 4 colors being in a row of 5,
1 inch wide pieces were placed between each colored square using 1/4 inch seam.
That put 1/2 inch between each, making up the extra 2 inch square plus extra quarter inch seam on end.

 I chose to do squares to place pieces for starting point instead of the traditional circle
which would have involved curved piecing.
Only 4 game pieces are used, so the center was a different fabric.

 Even though I used a formula to determine the size of the triangles needed,
the square still came out to small.
My only direction is to make these pieces oversized then cut down to size needed
which is roughly ultimately a 10 inch square.

Finally, all the pieces are ready to put together.
This 34 inch square could be a small stand along quilt.
