WiP Wednesday : Sewing for Baby #2

Seeing as my due date is officially 4 weeks away, I thought this would be the week to finally get around to some of my last minute baby sewing.

Ever since I made a Poolside Tote for my MIL for Christmas I have wanted to make myself one. Well I'm using the excuse that I need a cute hospital bag as a reason to make one. I have all of the fabric and interfacing cut out, now it's time to fuse and start sewing!

And while I'm at it, what's another quick baby quilt. I love a nice plus quilt and this one is just so fun. We are having a girl, but I am partial to green and blue, so guess what both of my girls baby quilts were created with green and blue. (Don't get me wrong I enjoy pink from time to time, but does everything for a baby girl have to be pink, I think not!)

Hoping to have this finished up by the weekend so I can get back to my swap sewing that I want to complete before this little girl makes her debut!

Happy Sewing!

  1. I love all those colors! Right now I see to be a turquoise kick when it comes to girls' quilts :-)

    1. Thanks, I love turquoise and used it one of my baby quilts recently.

  2. Great colors with your plus quilt!

  3. Good luck with the Baby! I was ready to start sewing four weeks before my due date. Unfortunately my (then) youngest daughter was admitted to hospital on that day and I got next to no sewing completed before baby was born! (She's fine now)

    I agree with you, baby girl quilts don't have to be all pink same as baby boy quilts can have pink in them!

    1. Glad to hear she is doing fine now. Sewing is keeping my mind occupied until baby come.

  4. I hear you on the baby girl=pink thing! I just had boy/girl twins in November and I'm amazed at how clearly defined boy colours vs. girl colours are. I made plus quilts for my kiddos too. This one has a great colour palette!

    1. Congrats on twins! That's why when I was pregnant with my first I didn't tell any extended family that I was having a girl, because I didn't want to be overloaded with pink items.

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

Geometric Captain America Shield : Free Pattern

so a couple of months ago, i signed up for the MARVELous Craft Swap through Instagram hosted by  @justjoshinkids . what i love about swaps is the chance to try something new. for this swap i wanted to try and design a paper pieced pattern based on Captain America's Shield. and taking my inspiration from @quietplay i made the pattern geometric, so i could make the shield more scrappy in nature. i used the free quilt design program called QuiltAssistant to design my pattern. after figuring out what the heck i was doing, i finally landed on a pattern that worked. with a few minor tweaks here and there, i am happy how it turned out. the pattern finishes at 13 inches square, but i slightly oversized it, so i could trim the edges down to 12.5 inches, to finish at 12 inches. I loved designing this pattern and have a few more in the works that I hope to release as well. You can find this pattern on Payhip . This pattern is for personal, not for profit use only. If you do

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
