What an amazing day!  I LOVE the winter Olympics and this year has been great!  My only complaint is that I have to wait until the Olympics are over to see Pam have her baby.  LOL

Tonight I took my quilt back to the quilter.  I showed her the problem areas (all of it) and she immediately apologized and said that she would unpick and re-quilt it.  *fingers crossed*  I was really worried that the entire thing was going to be an argument but it went pleasantly enough.  We’ll just have to wait and see how it comes out.

I am currently mourning the semi-death of my camera.  Anyone know a good repair shop that will fix it for something close to free?  I swear this is the only reason that I have failed to post pictures of my newest quilts!  I finished the binding and I am currently washing the boy quilt I made and I also put together the quilt top of a quilt that I am making for…..  ME!!!  Something I am going to keep!  Oh my!  I made it from Moda’s Blush and I am in love!  Now I just need to decide if I am going to quilt it myself or quilt by check.


a good start to the new year… January 27, 2010

This is going to be my UFO-free year.  And I am still on track!  Okay, so it is still January,but still….  I completed one quilts for my neighbor who had a little girl on Saturday.  I used the Hushabye line from Moda.  This fabric is so yummy and I am glad that I got some of it before it disappeared from my LQS.

And I finished these two sweet baby quilts from the Baby Love book.  You can purchase the book, fabric, and even see the quilts on display at Material Girls.

Extra points to anyone who noticed my hubby’s pajama pants match one of these quilts!

I am LOVING my new machine but my new job is getting in the way of using it.  Who knew work would make me so tired?  I get home after ten and usually have just enough energy to nuke some food and zone out in front of the television for half an hour before heading off to bed.  In theory, I should have enough time in the morning to get things done, but I spend most of it running errands and playing with the baby.  So, I have a beautiful baby quilt just waiting on the ironing board to be finished.  All I need to do is finish hand stitching the binding.  It calls to me every night.  It wants to finished.  It wants to be photographed and shared here.  And it wants to go to it’s new home.  Poor quilt.  I am so happy with the way it turned out.  I used the bubblegum basics fabric.  If only I still had a girl little enough for it.  *sniff*

If I don’t post pictures by Saturday night, I’ve been slacking!


Signature Block Swap July 14, 2009

block-swap-button   I have been seeing this button all over the place and finally went and had a look.  It took me to Cornbread and Beans Quilting.  Melissa has set up a wonderful block swap.  I can’t wait to do this!  And it gives me a chance to use some Civil War prints, which I hardly ever do.  The amount of blocks you will need to make will (of course) depend on the number of people who sign up but it looks like a lot so far.

  You can also check out Melissa’s sewing room which just made me green with envy.  One day, one day….
