If you were a road sign?


Where was this book 20 years ago when my boys were little and obsessed by all things mobile? Now they are in their 20's and 30's and obsessed by all things mobile but the only difference is that it is a phone now.
Angela's quest for  boy themed projects  is certainly showcased here in her new book,
Stop. Go. Quilt. Sew! Make 12 Fun projects for Boys to Enjoy.



Angela creates her own fabric for appliques by piecing various strips together. In the book she talks about creating scrap applique. This technique is perfect whether you are using scraps or jelly rolls.
 I am giving away a basic jelly roll (off white bella solid) in case you are interested in
creating your own scrap applique. ( see below for info)


While we are talking street signs, I thought I would show you a few local street signs in my neck of the woods. The first sign will not actually be found on any map or google site. It is a street sign that the employees at Moda/United Notions gave to the boss. I happened to catch the moda van parked  by the sign which makes it  much more official.

The sign below is an actual street sign that I had never seen before until one of my kids sent me the pic.
How great is this?


Angela asked us if we had to design our own street sign , what would it say.

Of course mine is in the shape of a hexagon
but isn't red because that would mean
STOP
and that is the last
thing on my mind.

Angela is giving away a
Book
and I am going to throw in a
Basic Jelly Roll.

Leave a comment and tell me what would your
street sign would say for a chance to win the book
 or the jelly roll. 
 2 prizes, 2 chances to win.

  61. Actually, designing your own street sign is fine, Lissa, as long as it is for the good of everyone. If you plan on adding a little humor to the message, just make sure it is still safe, okay? :) Also, choose the color of your signboard wisely. Know the meaning of each colors on the road and which ones are more likely to catch the attention of people.
