Color the Rainbow: A Lizzy House Quilt


I am a HUGE fan of Lizzy House. I love all of her fabric, so bold and saturated with color. And she uses the entire rainbow of colors. So for awhile now, since I started sewing back in 2011 I have been gathering (hoarding) Lizzy House fabrics.

Well this summer for the #MyPreciousQAL I decided it was finally time to cut into my stash of Lizzy fabric and create a one of a kind quilt. So I did and I love what it has become.

I used the Summer Slice tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew as my pattern. Not a hard pattern, but when sewing with 2 small kiddos, sewing can take a backseat (and with plenty of swap sewing thrown in as well). By the end of the summer I had a top complete and even had the back done. A few weeks later I even had my huge batting order come in, but did I baste that quilt and just get it done, of course not! I instead worked on a whole host of other projects and it

Well this week I decided it was finally time to get this week done! I love the saturated colors and it fits perfectly in my family room!


I decided to keep the quilting minimal since I didn't want to detract from the lovely fabric. So I quilted with a serpentine stitch on my Opal 650 with my favorite Aurifil thread #2606 in 40wt. The gray perfectly blends in beautifully. 


I used Quilter's Dream Wool Batting (my favorite!) and just love the texture and drape created when using it. Plus I just love when my quilts are puffy and warm. This quilt will be seeing a lot of use this winter.


And because it is fun to steal pictures of my quilt holder, I just had to include this one!


Now to finish up my last swap of the year, then on to Christmas sewing!

Happy Sewing!

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

Bonnie & Camille Sampler Quilt | A Finished Quilt

so last year i taught a BOM at my local quilt shop. i had already made up the sample quilt, so i needed to make blocks along with my students. well thank goodness for a couple of Bonnie & Camille layer cakes just waiting for the perfect project. the blocks are for the Vice Versa Sampler Quilt from AnnaMarie Chaney ( here is my original quilt ) but this time i decided use the Bonfire Sampler (also from AnnaMarie Chaney) setting for this set of blocks. i love those big HST they just work for this quilt! i just love this quilt and always knew it would be given to someone. i just didn't know who that someone would be. well as i was quilting this up, it finally occurred to me who i would send this along too. when we moved, one of the girl's church grandmas was rather heartbroken that we were moving. so i sent this to her as a surprise and when it showed up she called telling me that this just made her day! and that right there is why i quilt!

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
