Lots of little details.

I’ve been getting lots of sewing details out of the way recently.

I made a cute sample quilt for my class later this month.

Sample Quilt

It’s little – 24″ x 36″ and makes me realize I need to branch out in my quilting more. I love the texture all these straight lines give it.

Also  stitching up labels…  I like that these fill my TV time along with binding stitching.

And bees! I’m all caught up on all of my bees! Just need to pop all of these into the mail…

Now I need to dive back into a this quilt

Another one finished!

This is my 15th quilt of the year!  It’s based on the “What a Bunch of Squares” Denyse Schmidt patten.

Boy Baby Quilt

How long will it be before there isn’t any Mingle in every quilt I make?? A long time I think.

Ducks!

My Block Party Quilt

The quilt that I made with all of the women involved in Block Party, a virtual quilting bee, is finished and it’s beautiful!

Each and every block in this quilt is perfect.

Right?? I’m so lucky this is mine.

If you click through to this photo on flickr, you can see a collage with a photo of each block and link to who made them. That’s one batch of seriously talented ladies! I’m thrilled to be doing this bee with all of them.

Here’s the pieced back I put together based on all the fabric I had left.

Block Party Quilt - Back

Permit me to show you some more pretty pictures of it!

I genuinely love this quilt so much and the fact that it was made with help from so many of the wonderful people I’ve gotten to know though this amazing online quilting/blogging community makes me love it even more.

Block Party Quilt - Folded Up

It measures 75″ x 75″ and it’s going to live with me on my couch.  All the time.  Have I mentioned that I love it??

Funky Wonky Squares Quilt!

Clearly I’m not the most creative at coming up with quilt names… oh well – I guess this says it all!

Wonky Blocks Quilt

All finished! I love it. Love love love it. I think it’s so youthful and funky and just fun!

Wonky Blocks Quilt Detail

For the back I did a simple strip of patchwork – mostly solids with a pop of pattern! The patterned fabric is the circles from Mingle. Man am I ever obsessed with those right now… I think I bought them in every colorway!

Wonky Blocks Quilt Back

And the chocolate brown binding adds a nice frame to it.

It’s listed in my shop!

The girliest of girly baby quilts!

I finished up the super girly baby quilt. I love it!

Girly Baby Quilt

That photo isn’t so great but you can see the design… Here’s one with colors that are truer…

Girly Baby Quilt

It’s been so long since I’ve finished a quilt. This little one makes me happy!

The back with a bit more of the amazing Far, Far Away… so cute!

Girly Baby Quilt Back

I usually go with a solid binding, but I occasionally like a small scale print one… I think this one came out well!

Girly Baby Quilt Binding

Happy Monday everyone!  For me, this is the last week on my job… I will miss the paychecks but I can’t wait for all of the soon to arrive sewing time!

A winner and a change…

First of all, thank you all so much for all of your amazing comments! 366 of you commented and I read every single one. You are all so kind! Your support is wonderful!

Ok – getting down to business! The random number generator gave me:

Picture 1

This means that Katie from Philigry is the winner! Katie, I’ll drop you an e-mail to get your mailing address.

And now, the change… These past hyper-productive quilting months have been wonderful, but I have also been unemployed. Happily, the unemployment has come to an end! I think that I’ve mentioned previously that for my “real job” I cast reality shows and I’ve landed a very lucky job. Project Runway! Tell your fashion designer friends! Tell your fashion blogger friends! Spread the word. We are looking for people to be on the show!

Meanwhile, I’m not going to be able to think about quilting nearly as much. I’m really going to try to keep posting regularly here, but I’m sure you’ll hear less from me. I’ve been sewing every day to have so much to blog about. Oh how I will miss my sewing machine!

In other news, I’ve finished the last of this pattern. Don’t need to make this one again for awhile. I still think it’s super cute, but five is enough for now!!

Happy Monday to all of you!

Mystery solved?

Thank you all so much for all of your wonderful comments on the sewing notions that my mother passed along to me.  They were all so nice!

Mystery tool

Consensus on the mystery tool, in the photo above, seems to be that it’s either a turning point or a finger press. Based on the fact that it has a point, but not a sharp one, and that the rectangle on the end is shaped in a way that seems like you should hold it there, I’m leaning towards the turning point. Though perhaps it was meant for many purposes! Anyhow, I’m happy to have it, along with all of the other wonderful tools.

Meanwhile, one more finished Square in Squares Baby Boy quilt! This one is already accounted for and being mailed off today!

Another Square in Squares Baby Boy quilt!

Only two more to finish up and then I’m not going to make this pattern for awhile. I’ve had my fill!

Another Square in Squares Baby Boy quilt!

These little guys sure are cute though.

Hope that you have lovely weekends filled with sewing! I’ve not been able to be in the sewing room much this week with my mother’s visit so I’m excited to get back at it. Oh and by the way yes, she did love her quilt!

2 down…

and 3 more of this pattern to go. Hope you don’t get sick of seeing the same quilt, with different fabrics over and over… Some are for friends and some to sell!

These two are both now in the shop.

I hadn’t worked with strictly yellow and pink before… I kinda love it. I’m thinking I need to start exploring yellow more in general!

Square in Square Baby Girl Quilt

I worked with 50% Bamboo batting for the first time with these and I have to say, I love it! The drape is really lovely.

Next I’m gonna try to get a couple of gender neutral ones all done. Hope that you all have wonderful weekends!!

Two Baby Coin Quilts

All done with these coin quilts that I made simultaneously.  I enjoyed making them at the same time.  Since they are this small (34″ x 46″) it didn’t feel like it took too long.

Two Baby Coin Quilts

I really love so many of the fun fabrics in these!

I didn’t intend to do different backs, but after mistakenly I sewed the strip of patterned fabric upside down on the girl quilt, I thought, why not?!?

And some simple solid bindings. I have found that I really love solid bindings as a nice simple frame to the louder coin strips.

Up next, two more baby quilts, also made at the same time!

A stack of quilts.

Just ’cause it’s pretty!
