Hello and Happy Fall!

I haven't posted in awhile because I have not worked on any quilt projects this month. However, I've been working on some other fun things. I have some friends who were/are expecting babies soon and I made a couple nursing covers for them using this tutorial:

Here is a picture of the first one I made but I forgot to take a picture of the second one before I mailed it off to Texas. It uses boning at the top so the mother can see her baby as she nurses.

I also have been cutting felt like crazy for Thursday night. We are having an Autumn social for the women at church and having dinner along with doing some crafts for fun and service. We are making crayon rolls for the children at the Ronald McDonald house using this tutorial:

I already made one (but haven't loaded a picture to my computer yet - the above pic is copied from the skiptomylou blog) and it was easy to make and turned out really cute. I loaded up on Crayola crayons when they were on sale at Target for 25 cents a box around back to school time.

I have other health news possibly forthcoming (if it's good, maybe even if it's not so good). Keep your fingers crossed for me as my doctor's appointment is next Monday.

Thank you to my followers - it's nice to have you join me and not be alone in Blogland anymore!! :)

Baby Quilt

I just finished a baby quilt for a friend who is having a baby girl in a couple months. I love the Hushabye line by Tula Pink and used a charm pack and some coordinating fabric to make this quilt. I made the binding with the pink/brown bunny damask from the Hushabye line.

My 6-year-old daughter had a friend over a few days ago when I was working on it. Her friend told me she really liked the quilt I was making and then asked, "When I have a baby, will you be dead?" I laughed and told her probably not. Then she asked if I would make a quilt for her baby when she has one. Now that's a compliment!!

Quilt #2

After making my first quilt and giving it away as a Christmas present, I went to work on another quilt. This one was going to be for my husband. I again used a Moda layer cake (Tranquility by Sandy Gervais), but this time did it in disappearing nine patch blocks. This time I branched out and made my own coordinating bias binding. Here are some pics.

My First Quilt

This is the first quilt I made. I used a Louisa layer cake from Moda and kept it simple. I quilted "in the ditch" once it had been pieced and used pre-made quilt binding.


Hello and welcome to my new blog! In this blog I will be posting about the quilts I make, fabric, inspiration, etc. I made my first quilt in December of 2009 and was instantly hooked. Since then, I have completed two more quilts and have two more in progress.
