Hi everyone! Sorry I have been a bit slow to blog lately. I went out of town to visit my sister for a week, and then had a week long family reunion this week(still in progress!) 🙂 We are having so much fun hanging out together. I have been sewing a bit. I finished and mailed my bug doll for the blinking flights bug doll swap. They are so cute. I finished two of my T-Shirt quilt orders (only one more to go!) I started a circles quilt out of the Riley Blake fabric…it is going to be so dang cute! I caught up my Kansas City Star blocks, Hillary cut and pinned all my applique blocks so I HAD to finish them! She is so sweet! 🙂 I decided to try out free motion raw edge applique on my Bunny Hill bom blocks. I love them so much!
I won a gorgeous quilt from Penny at sewtakeahike. It is beautiful and I love it! Thank you Penny!
I would show pictures of all of these things but I dropped my camera in the river while visiting Hillary and my pics are bright white flashes…so I am trying to figure out the camera problem and then I am sure you will be swamped with photos!
And finally the real reason I wanted to post today! The Quilters Daily Deal today is a Wonderland by Momo layer cake for 15.95! It is such a great deal! 55% off! Go check it out and grab one for yourself!
Have a fantastic day!
This summer has really gotten away from me! I can’t believe how busy we’ve been! The kids have been involved in all kinds of things…we have had summer school, the swim team, several birthdays, two quilt shows, doctors appointments, and the list goes on..! It has been crazy! So, when I finally get the chance to sit down and sew a few seams I hardly know where to start!
I should be sashing this quilt:Or finishing up the last twenty or so blocks for this quilt:
Instead, I started this quilt! I know, I’ll never learn…
But its just so dang cute! I love this particular grouping of the Hello Betty fabrics!
I have plans for several more “new” quilts that I want to start, and three T-shirt quilts that I need to finish up for customers. But, I am so tired today…I think an afternoon nap is in order! (after grocery shopping and paying bills, and before dinner and the pool party! …oh, and I have to tidy up the house sometime today too!) oh well! 🙂 That’s summertime right! Hope your all enjoying your summer!
I joined the Spring Blooms Mini Quilt Swap, how could I resist that kind of fun!? 🙂 So, of course I had to make a practice quilt! The little cutie above is my first attempt at a mini quilt. I had some fun with it. I tried a bit of embroidery mixed with patchwork. I also did some geometric free motion quilting on the squares and a bigger floral pattern on the rest of the quilt. I like it very much, so do my girls…they have decided that it is a quilt for their barbies! The jury is still out on that one!:)
This is the quilt I made for my swap partner. She is a darling girl who asked for bright bold colors…no pastels, she said! I am hoping that she will like this one! It sure was fun to make! I think the flower pattern in the quilting is so pretty. I used Tranquility by Sandy Gervais fabric and Hobbs Heirloom low loft batting so its not as puffy as it looks! I can’t wait to hear if she likes it! This swap has been fun and inspiring. I have enjoyed seeing all the other designs, everyone is so creative, and so different! Love it!
And last but not least, my spring blooms mini quilt received! I got this darling little art quilt in the mail this week. It is appropriately named Sunny and was made just for me by Royce. She is a wonderful fiber artist from Tennessee. Thanks so much Royce!
So, my lovely little sister gave me this adorable little elephant for my birthday!
Isn’t she so cute?? Irresistible, if you ask me! So, the funny thing was when my girls brought me all the other elephants in our house to introduce our new little friend to her family! I had no idea I had so many elephants! It was clear I have a “thing” for them.
So, I thought I would share a few of my favorite elephant fabrics that have been hanging out in my pictures folder and my etsy favorites! Enjoy!
