Schnitzel & Boo Mini Quilt Swap Round 3 : Mini Come What May

Wanted to share the quilt I made for my partner for Round 3 of the Schnitzel & Boo Mini Quilt Swap. This is the second time that I have participated in this swap and it was just as fun as it was over the summer. It did get a little crazy with the holidays, but with a little planning on my part, I had my mini pieced together and ready for quilting before I had to finish my Christmas sewing. 

I decided that this time around I wanted to try a new quilt pattern, so I landed on the Mini Come What May pattern by Jaybird Quilts. There is only one block to this pattern, making a fairly easy pattern to make, the tricky part is keeping your fabrics in the right order, so you will end up with the woven look. What helped me was using low volume fabrics for the weaving underneath and brighter fabrics for the weaving on top. I love how it turned out. This is one pattern I will be making again, so I can have one to hang up in my home.

I of course added some extras, including a zipped pouch, fabric scraps, mini charm pack, and this little initial mini quilt. I love the Spell it With Fabric patterns by Moda Fabrics. I have used them for a few different mini quilts and love them. So for this one I decided I would make a scrappy version (now I need to make a few for my family)!

Now it's time to work on my other swaps and try and finish them up before baby girl joins us in early March.

Mini Modern Maples Cushion Cover | Scrap Project 6

Ahh, I just love fall! Hands down my favorite season, especially in the UP. There are a few leaves starting to change color and I'm so excited. I'm looking forward to a color tour in a few weeks and really hope I have a few quilts done so I can take some quilt in the wild photos. So with fall rolling in, I figured I would make a fun little fall inspired cushion cover. And since I've been on small scale sewing kick, I thought a mini modern maple cover was just what I needed for my living room. Plus, lets face it this was just a perfect reason to dig through the scrap bins and use up those small little scraps. My mini maple block finishes at 3 inches and when added to a mini 9 patch block it makes for a lovely scrappy cushion cover. For the quilting a did a orange peel design and while a little wonky, I love it! Lately I've been at a lose as to what I want to quilt on my quilts, so this was a nice change. I quilted this cover on my Janome HD9. This bab

2017 New Quilt Blogger Blog Hop

for the last several weeks i have been participating in the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop, hosted by Yvonne ( Quilting Jet Girl ), Beth ( Cooking Up Quilts ), and Leanne ( She Can Quilt ). while i have been blogging for a little while, this blog hop has been great to hone my blogging skills and meet other quilt bloggers. i have been crafty most of my life, i even learned to sew when i was younger. but it didn't really stick. after college i was living in Iowa and on a whim i bought a cheap sewing machine and began a back and forth with sewing. fast forward a few years, i got married and pulled that sewing machine out again and this time actually made a quilt top (that sat for at least 3 years before i quilted it). sewing again was pushed to the side as i was finishing my master's program and job hunting.  well after landing a job, moving, looking for a house. we found out we were expecting. though it was not to be and i miscarried in march 2011. during the next ye

Let's Catch Up | A Couple of Rainbow Quilts

2020 has been one hell of a year! I am trying to make my way back to this space, but I know it will be hit or miss as we get ready to move in a couple of weeks! During my time away I spend a lot of it helping my kiddo with school and stitching up a bunch of new quilts. I still can't believe it has been 2.5 years since we moved to the Upper Peninsula. Now we are moving again, staying in the U.P, just moving closer to my job working at a quilt shop. So of course my oldest daughter wanted to give her two friends quilts before we move, so that meant I needed to get quilting. This first quilt was made with my 2.5 inch square stash. I originally sewed 16-patch blocks, but wanted more of a punch, so I sewed 4, 16-patch blocks together to make one large block. Since I wanted to create a rainbow spectrum, I added the sashing and finished with a border. I love how this one turned out and Nora's friend loved it. One of the perks of my job is access to a long arm machine! I am really start
