Little Man Quilt

Sunday, November 11, 2018

A few weeks ago, a soon-to-be first-time grandma asked if I could make a quilt for her grandson. After a few messages back and forth to iron out the details I got started on a quilt for her new little man!

Glowing Lone Star Quilt

Monday, November 5, 2018

It's time to reveal another secret sewing quilt from earlier this year!

The Glowing Lone Star quilt is a pattern and kit available on Craftsy! I enjoyed writing the pattern and making the quilt top, but I REALLY loved adding the quilting!

Vintage Sheets Quilt in Quilty Magazine

I vividly remember the sheets on my bed when I was growing up. They were soft, but had a sort of crispness to them and were cool to the touch when I laid my head on my pillow. One set had small light pink flowers with light green leaves. Another set had dainty yellow and peach flowers. Today, they are called "vintage," and I now know that crispness came from the cotton/polyester blend they were made from.

When I learned of people making quilts from vintage sheets, I knew I *HAD* to make my own!

Rainbow Hexies

Wednesday, October 31, 2018

This month's Island Batik ambassador challenge was paper piecing. When trying to decide what to make scouring Pinterest for ideas, I remembered I had already made a small stash of hexies earlier this year from the Petting Zoo collection! It was their time!

The Finial Quilt + Pattern

Sunday, October 28, 2018

Remember that one time I made a quilt in a crazy short period of time for Mathew Boudreaux (aka Mister Domestic) for Quilt Market earlier this year? (You can read about it here.) Well, I obviously didn't learn my lesson, because I jumped at the chance to create something with his second fabric line, Aura!

Meet my newest quilt pattern: Finial. Finial is featured in the Art Gallery Fabrics lookbook for the Aura collection!
