Finished Quilts (from the last few months)

so the last few months have been a bit crazy. we put our house on the market, sold it, moved out, and recently found a new home in the UP (7 hours away from our old home). obviously from my last post, this space was not a priority. well now that we are just waiting until we can finish our move, it felt like a great time to get my blog a little attention again.

in between working on the house and taking care of children, i was able to finish a lot of smaller quilt projects. such as this little quilt for a new baby girl for a family at our church. I love a good stash buster and this one certainly did the job.

my quilt group had a movie mini quilt challenge. i love Guardians of the Galaxy and the soundtrack is amazing. so i wanted to pay homage to the music and created this Awesome Mix Vol. 1 mini quilt. i designed this pattern a few years ago for a swap and decided to make it a little smaller this time around.

 and since i was on a movie kick at that time. i felt is was time to finally test and finish my Geometric Deadpool paper pieced pattern.

 of course while trying to clean out my sewing room, meant a few more projects were started. for instance this pillow cushions came about since i needed to clean out some of my Lizzy House scraps and low volume scraps. a little 5 inch cross block and a pair of cushions later. perfect excuse to use some more of my stash!

 continuing the cleaning, i found this Finding Dory panel and charm squares. so my oldest daughter finally has her Dory quilt. (of course right now it is packed away in storage, but still it is done!)

finally in my quest to finish up small projects i made another cushion our of the leftover Scrappy Lizzy House cross blocks. this time i set them on point. i really love this block on point, it just may need to become a much larger quilt at some point.

so there you have it, a few of my smaller projects that i haven't shared here due to house craziness. i have a few larger projects that will receive their own post. hopefully it won't take me months to write them.


  1. So good to see what you have been up to. I did a similar thing - moving out of a big house - but we went smaller. I’ll be posting my new sewing room this week.

  2. do you have a pattern available for the deadpool?

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

Modern Green Bay Packers Sampler Quilt | A Finished Quilt

  Shortly after we moved to the UP 3 years ago, I was browsing Pinterest as one does and found this quilt . Being originally from the lower peninsula of Michigan that we must be Lion fans. Well I was never really a Lions fan and my husband and I don't watch football at all. We became friends with a couple who love the Packers, so I started pulling fabrics and slowly making blocks. After 3 years in the making it is finally done and our friends love it. During the initial shutdown for COVID-19, I really starting going to town on this quilt. Plus I had my 2020 Triple Block Bee-mates help with the filler cross blocks. This was a nice project that I could just loose myself in. Besides doing virtual schooling with my kiddo, my afternoons were spent in my sewing room. I went through so much stash! I didn't do any planning when I began sewing the blocks, so putting this together was a bit of a challenge. But it was like a giant puzzle and I like how it turned out. Now I have other idea

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
