WiP Wednesday : Scrappy projects

Another week, another set of wip's!


I finished piecing the Doctor Who quilt blocks and managed to get them sewn together for a top. I even have my backing fabric prepped, now I just need my girls to cooperate so I can baste while my hubby is at work. I want to surprise him with this quilt on Christmas morning! Wish me luck!!


I started a few postage stamp blocks for my next Quilt the Book projects. I'm going to be making it scrappy and use up some leftover fabric from other quilts. I think it is going to be cute. Who doesn't love Dr. Seuss?!


In my spare sewing moments I have also been working on the Moda Sampler Shuffle. I'm hoping this week I can get caught up.

Well that's all for now, Happy Sewing!

  1. Your WIP's look great. Good luck finding time to baste. I have a toddler who likes to "help" basting when I don't finish up while he's napping.

    1. Thanks! My toddler loves "helping" mama if I didn't finish basting as well.

  2. Really like how the pattern of your first quilt plays with negative space (the whites). Hey, I'm retired and somehow still find excuses for putting off work. I think when something takes up your time, you are more apt to get things done. Enjoy both your little ones and quilting.

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

Buffalo Plaid Quilt : A Finished Quilt

my last big Christmas gift is done! this year i wanted to make my BIL and SIL quilts, as i've made quilts for the kiddos, i figured it was their turn for a quilt. well i needed one more masculine quilt and i've always wanted to make a buffalo plaid quilt so this was perfect! at first i was not looking forward to making this one, with all of the cutting and putting the small squares together. but after some thinking i decided i would strip piece and streamline the process. i was able to piece the top together in one day as opposed to multiple days if i would have cut individual squares. i love this quilt, of course i now want to make one for myself, but that will be for another time. Quilt Stats Pattern: designed by me, inspired by buffalo plaid scarves and quilts Dimensions: 61.5 inches x 74.5 inches Quilting: Straight line echo Fabric: Moda Bella solids, Black, Gray, Bleached White, and Marigold for the binding Happy Sewing!

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!
