Been awhile...

It's been awhile since I've blogged and I don't have any quilty pictures for you yet. I have finished several quilts but just haven't gotten around to taking pictures of them. Our new baby boy arrived at the end of September and he is keeping me pretty busy. We took the kids to see Santa the other day and even got to meet a couple of his reindeer, this is Prancer. Isn't he cute! I love everything about the Christmas season! Decorating, visiting Santa, baking(including a birthday cake for Jesus), and spending lots of time with family and friends! I hope you all have a great Christmas season and I'll be back with pictures next year, which in case you forgot is less than a month away! Where did this year go?!

A few more things for baby...

So lots of people seemed to be expecting little ones here lately. I usually make taggie blankets as shower gifts but this time I needed burp clothes and bibs so I thought I would try my hand at those. I bought a cheap bib from walmart and made myself a bib pattern, then I got some flannel and some terry cloth from Joanns and got started. These were super easy to make and I got to use up some of those batting scraps I had laying around, see I new they would come in handy eventually. The flower set on top are for a friend who is expecting a girl and the cute brown with animals is for my little one. I think I will like these more than the store bought ones, I have yet to find a store bought burp cloth I really like.


Look what I got in the mail from the lovely Jennifer Paganelli! I won the poodle raffle she was hosting on her blog a while back. I was so excited when I got this beautiful little bundle! I am thinking that a dresden plate quilt will be in the making soon. Well that is if I can bear to cut it up! :-)

Wow, it's been awhile...

So I haven't blogged in awhile, mostly because I haven't done very much lately. I just haven't had any motivation this pregnancy, I don't remember being this tired the first time around. Anyway so I have a few finishes now to post about. First is my best friends table runner I made for her wedding. I made a table runner as a gift because I knew that a quilt just wouldn't get finished anytime soon. This is a disappearing nine patch made with hunky dory. Her favorite color is Tiffany's blue and I think the hunky fabrics are close.

This is a baby quilt for our new little one. I just fell in love with this panel from spx fabrics. My four year old picked the fabric for the pinwheels and I found that orange rick rack on clearance at Joanns. I really like the way it turned out and it was pretty simple! Now I am going to try and finish my pinwheel sampler from psiquilt. I finished the first two blocks on time and haven't seemed to get back to it yet, but I'm thinking this will be a perfect weekend to get it done!

Sorry for the dark pics but the lighting in my house stinks! I am on week two of psiquilt.coms pinwheel quilt along and this is my progress so far. I am working with an Arabella by Pat Sloan FQ bundle and I just love the colors. I bought the fabrics close to year ago and I had planned to make a pinwheel quilt with them so when Rachel announced this quilt along I knew it would be the perfect project! I'm gonna add a few extra block though because I want a bed sized quilt. Can't wait to see the new block on Saturday!

A new finish

I finished the Shelby mine bag I have been working on. I decided I didn't like it about half way through but now thats it done I think I like it after all. I wasn't sure about the Boutique fabric, my SIL picked it, but I think it's OK. I love the shape of the bag though!

For your viewing pleasure

I just got back from my guilds quilt show "A Quilters Journey". It was great! I thought I would share a few of my favorite photos. Hope enjoy this mini quilt show!

Been awhile!

Well it's been awhile since I posted anything! I didn't realize it had been so long. There has been so much going on here. I finished my scruffily quilt top, tutorial by Rachel at, it is done in objects of desire and I love it. My daughter does too, can you tell. :-) I also finished my modern siggy blocks and got those mailed off.

Right now I am working on a purse for my SIL. I am using the shelby mine pattern by Carley of quiltville and some boutique fabric. So far it seems pretty simple. I haven't felt up to doing much lately though so it might be awhile before it's finished. I have so many projects planned for this year I really need to get started. My hubby told me I needed to finish some before I bought stuff for anymore, then he gave me a gift certificate to my LQS for valentines! I just added three more projects to my list this weekend. Anybody else have this problem? How do you know when to say no?!
