B-I-N-G-O

Is everybody ready for a fun BINGO game?  May For Me is going to happen in May (of course) and a part of it will be a BINGO game.  First of all you need to make a bingo card.  This little project sounded right up my alley. 



I have participated in several I Spy swaps through Sandra so I was ready to sort through some of them to find the right colors.  The mini quilt itself was very easy to construct and you can find a great tutorial on making one here.  It went up so quickly and was so much fun that I made a second one for the big Blog Hop Party giveaway  on St. Patrick's Day.  Be sure to check back on the 17th for a chance to win one. 

The Master list on my card will read:

B                I                N                   G                        O

flags         bees           apples            ladybugs                ribbons
cats          spider         boots             puzzles                  mice
owls         birds           free                cows                    letters
stars         rulers          dogs             cars/trucks             butterflies
frogs        shoes           leaves           tractors                  flowers              


Since I used swapped blocks in my BINGO cards I am going to submit my project to Thearica's Swap Party for March.   Be sure to sign up for it if you make a BINGO card using swapped blocks.

Of course it was not all fun sewing because I did a really nutty thing.  I sandwiched both of the quilts and had them on the cutting table on top of each other.  I then went to the machine to quilt it, quilted the entire thing thinking "Boy, this is thick".  Duh!!!!  Went to grab the next quilt and could not find it.  Yep....I quilted them both together.  There was a lot of un-sewing to do.  Ugh!!  Please tell me you have done something stupid like that too.

OH No what a pain. Stitching both little quilts together. I have done heaps of silly things but not this one yet......
Sounds like fun this BINGO will check it out.
How is your New York Beauty going???

Your Bingo quilts are so cute! Life is pretty hectic on this end, so guess I'll have to stay tuned for a chance to win your giveaway (wink).

I've made plenty of sewing mistakes. My most recent gaff was a few months ago. I was hurrying to finish machine quilting a Christmas gift and then realized the bobbin thread wasn't adjusted properly. I spent hours ripping, which was so frustrating since I was under time pressure to begin with. Seems like I always make more mistakes when I'm in a hurry or too tired to focus.

Those are real cute BINGO cards. I finally finished mine. I thought it was finished and I had two teapots so I had to find another fabric to sew over the duplicate. And yes, I do things like you did. The seam ripper gets lots of use around my house.

What cute Bingo cards! I hadn't heard about May for Me~ thanks for the info!

So sorry you had to unsew! :-o I hope the rest of your sewing goes along well with no more mishaps!
Have a happy day!

Sweet little quilts, I hate having to unpick stuff, such a bore after doing the sewing!

QuiltSue said...

Yes, I am really good at doing silly things like that, which just may explain why I have to keep buying new stitch rippers to replace blunt ones!

An I-spy quilt is on my to-make list. And yes, I've had to rip out plenty of mistakes ... most recently I made about 30 9 patch blocks that had 5 white and 4 blue patches ... but I should have sewn them together so that I had 5 blue and 4 white patches. I didn't have a lot of extra fabric, so I had to rip them all apart and sew them back together.

Stephanie said...

Cutest bingo cards ever. How fun. Bummer about the unsewing, though.

boysmum2 said...

That all sounds like such fun...well apart from the sewing 2 quilts together! Poor you

Sharon said...

That sure does sound like fun. I am not a big sewer, so I guess I need to take a chance to win one.
They are so cute however.
Have a great day.
Hugs

PEA said...

Well look at that, quilted bingo cards!! You simply amaze me:-) I can well imagine what a fun project that was for you.

As for sewing the two quilts together accidently...hahahahaha!! lol Good to know that you do things like that too! hehe

Hope your week is going well, my friend. xoxo

The bingo cards are so cute! Now sewing two quilts together sounds like something I would do......that is if I sewed at all! :)

Elizabeth said...

Such cute bingo cards! I love your embroidered letters and what fun fabrics you used!

xo -E

Vicki said...

Your Bingo quilts are real cute. You are in good company for doing silly things. I once quilted a file folder to a wall hanging and was wondering why my sewing machine was making funny noises LOL.

Sheila said...

I think we all have done things like that at one time or other . Your bingo cards are so cute , I have to get busy and make one soon.

Dawn said...

Sounds like something I might do - not in quilting, but in something in my life! I'm always misplacing something in weird ways!

I finally got a post done! I guess Louise isn't going to blog for awhile, at least. Maybe never. I'll miss her, but I understand - sometimes I think I have nothing worthwhile left to say!

Michele said...

Beautiful bingo cards! Yes, I've done plenty of things like that! Recently I couldn't find the piece that holds the spool of thread down on my sewing machine, so I looked forever and asked my family to help. I thought the dog ate it. Turns out it was there all along. It had just gotten pushed down into the foam under the spool of thread. "sigh"

You are not alone. I once quilted a pattern onto the back of one of my quilts. Grrr!

Connie said...

The Bingo card is on my list, I really need to go through my fabrics and make one! Yours are so cute!

Kelli said...

Oh no! Bad luck sewing them together like that. That IS a lot of unpicking! I love your Bingo cards, though. Great idea with the swap blocks! (I have done my share of stupid things)
