Shannon’s Quilt Top Frames

My friend Shannon gifted me with a super cute quilt top frame last year. You can find her post with more information and examples by clicking here. Shannon and I are a part of the same homeschool group and this week some of the moms in our group got together for a little Shannon-inspired crafting.

Craft supplies should be pictured under the definition of “happy” in the dictionary.

This girl loves a party. She especially loves a girl party. Though she couldn’t join in this time, she made a welcome sign and little paper dolls for all the moms. She’s got the gift of hospitality.9.14frames-049.14frames-059.14frames-069.14frames-09

Below is the original one Shannon made me – it makes me think of her each time I see it. Check out her post to see how she added doilies too.9.14frames-08*The small photo prints are from Social Print Studio, they are from my Instagram account

  • heather barta - Thanks for sharing! I just placed my order with social print studio 😉 I am a long time fan and I LOVE all your posts, very inspirational!

  • Carrie - What a great idea! We love our CC and this inspires me to gather and do something encouraging with the moms. We have a moms night out, but wouldn’t it be fun to have a moms night “in” and take over with crafts!?!? Makes me happy to think about it. Also, I have been a long time reader (thank you for your awesome daily blog!!!!) and I thought it was great that you noted your daughters gift of hospitality – like mother like daughter I am thinking 🙂

  • Jenn - what a fun project and time you had with friends. you girl is a sweetie. i have probably said this before but think she and my girl would get along well. i think my daughter has the gift of hospitality as well.

  • Sandy C - Great way to combine a party for girls, scrap fabric, & yarn 🙂 Thanks for the idea!

  • Heather - what a lovely idea! I’m going to make one with my daughter for her room!

  • Emily Elderworth - Hello! These are adorable! Is the yarn just hot glued to the back of the frame? Thanks!

  • kimberly oyler - oh i love these.

  • Itzi - Thanks for sharing. I love anything to do with boards and hanging photos and papers. I must try to do this at home.
    Have a great day

  • Corrie - Love this Ashley!! I see some crafting in my future :).

  • AmyK - I’m totally making this for my future niece/nephew’s nursery! How cute! Thanks for the idea. Your blog is one of my favorites.

  • Ashley Smith - What a fun craft! Thanks for sharing. I found your blog a year and a half ago when I was looking into homeschooling. Ironically I found your blog through another gal’s blog who was a homeschooler. I don’t think that you had decided to homeschool then or if you had you hadn’t shared about it. Anyways, I have so enjoyed stopping by here and it’s a regular blessing in my life. I noticed the little welcome sign and just had to say that we have found and are enjoying CC too! This is our second year and it’s been a great part of our homeschool journey. I think you’ve just inspired me to have a CC mom’s night. Maybe we can make these! I don’t know if your group does this but ours has a map tracing contest where the kids trace maps each week and are aiming towards winning a pizza party. Tracing maps has been a fun way to help with the geography memorization. I found a huge box of wax paper sheets at Costco and that makes it easy. I hope your kids are enjoying it! Thanks!
