WiP Wednesday | September Edition


Time again for a WiP post.

I am starting to make some great progress on my WiP's! It feels so great to being checking of quilts from my list!


While we did a room swap this past August. I came across a bunch of mini quilt patterns that I had purchased but never actually stitched up. Now that I'm all moved into my new sewing space, I need more mini quilts for my walls. So those mini quilt patterns to the rescue. First up is Mini Science Fair by Jaybird Quilts. I am just loving these little triangles and hexagons!


Even better, I can finally stitch again on my Bernina Activa 220 without it freezing up on me! My husband replaced a little chip on the power supply motherboard and she has been stitching perfectly without freezes, YAY!


This is just a fun little scrap busting mini quilt. I just love a scrap busting quilt.


I'm finishing up the binding on my Tula Pink 100 Modern quilt blocks quilt! I am so happy that this one is finally in the home stretch!


On Tuesday, I spent the day obtaining my long arm rental certification. So that means I finished the quilting on two quilts in one day!! The one in the picture above is my first practice quilt and I am pretty happy with out it turned out! And the quilt pictured below is my second quilt.


Needless to say, I love long arm quilting! Now to get figure out when I can quilt up Enna's bed quilt!

Happy Stitching!

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!
