52 Charity Quilts in 52 Weeks - August

This month's charity quilts didn't go as planned! My goal was to put binding on several of the baby quilts I've longarmed recently. However, I ended up making three large throw quilts for foster teenagers instead!

New Address Mini Quilt

This month's theme for the Curated Quilts mini quilt challenge is "house." Originally, I was un-inspired by the prompt. However, once I started thinking of "home" instead of "house," I realized our recent move could be the inspiration!

Free Motion Fantasy Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the Free Motion Fantasy Blog Hop! I'm sharing lots of pictures in this post, but be sure to stick around to the end - there's a giveaway!

Baby items made with Free Motion Fantasy fabrics

When I saw the Free Motion Fantasy fabrics by Amanda Murphy, I was immediately in love! Amanda created the line specifically for using it for free motion quilting. Every print correlates to a free motion quilting design!

Since I'm 36 weeks pregnant with kiddo #3, I have baby on the brain! Right away, I knew I wanted to try making a quilted baby changing mat. Benartex generously sent me the fabrics for the changing mat, and a few extra too!

A quilt for baby Wren

When we moved into our new house just a few weeks ago, I was surprised to see that the neighbors on both sides of our house were also expecting! Of course I thought a baby quilt would be a better "meet your neighbor" gift than my usual quick bread!
