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?

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

Garden Snail Quilt : Update 2

well i had great intentions of keeping up with my blocks for the Garden Snail Quilt-a-long, but life and well, i just plain forgot a few weeks. so here are the blocks for the rest of January and February. i have enjoyed working with my Lizzy House stash and pairing it with some of my other favorite prints for the snail body. i've found it very useful to make 2 blocks at a time and i have very little waste from my background prints. and since i'm caught back up and even ahead a little bit, i will share my March blocks at the end of the month! if you are interested in joining the Snail Paced Slow-along-Sew-along, check out this post from Gnome Angel. Happy Sewing!
