Here is the boy version of the #dearstella quilt I made a couple weeks ago. This is one side of the quilt and I’ll be working on the other side this week. Then ALL of the tops need to be longarmed because #backup 😱.
Joining in on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge for the first time! I've been making these curved log cabin blocks aka beads sporadically so I thought joining in would be a fun way to get beads of all colors. Each block is 9" finished with 4 blocks per bead. These red scraps were all gifted by @carol.victory and @katjen61. Thanks gals! #rainbowscrapchallenge2018#sewingmystashoff#stopstashingstartsewing
Blocks are done! Now to do a final shuffle before assembling. I'm pretty happy with it. I have plenty of the green wavy stripe and I like it so I'll add a border of it also, not too wide. It's a print by Nancy Gere called Ophelia from Windham. The newest fabric in this project is from Tape Measure from Marcus Fabrics. I still can't resist a beautiful line of repros. Everything else has been in my stash a long time! #sewingmystashoff#stopstashingstartsewing#apqresolution2018
I started a new quilt over the weekend! Using two bundles from @a.crafty.fox ‘s ‘I want her stash club’ plus the bedsheet print (in butter) from my Emma & Myrtle collection with @connectingthreads (which happens to be on sale for 50% off at this time!!!). Hoping for a quilt that looks like it’s instantly vintage. 🤞🏻
I cut this quilt out earlier this spring and finally had the time to sit and sew the entire top together. While it was going together, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to add any borders and make it a twin. However, after seeing it in the backyard, I realize that it is the perfect picnic/outdoor concert quilt. I’m going to quilt it as is and keep the angled edges.
I squeezed in one more block this month! This was supposed to be Week 12 last year of #longtimegonesal#longtimegonequilt#stopstashingstartsewing I'm so happy to be making progress on this one. Next month is 64 Flying Geese units. Glad I have a month to take my time on it. @melissa.sewsandquilts ⬅️ Swipe for close up.
#misserincraftstbt : this little guy is now into toddler/childhood and no longer a little baby😂. But his quilt is still a perfect snuggle option. It’s made out of fabrics my mom started sewing and I finished-a grandma quilt!
My Village quilt is finished! I am so happy with the way it turned out-I did have my doubts 😉. I made some changes to the layout in the pattern Village by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. , added a couple of trees, extra sashings, strips of "grass" between the rows, all in an effort to have the houses a little more separated and to help get my sunrise theme across. Also added a narrow scrappy border because I liked it. Thanks to the sewalong with @stitchsupplyco that kept me going and to the other participants with their endless inspiration!

I finished not one, but TWO epic Heather Ross quilts this week. One to keep and one for a friend. 💕 I got them done just in time for summer snuggling. 💕💕 I’m SUPER happy with how they turned out. My friend loved hers, too. 💕💕💕
Here’s the other half to my @fatquartershop order. The entire @konacotton color palette in charm squares for a #halfsquaretrianglequilt . I am a little late to the party of making this but I’m hoping to get caught up within a couple of days.
My order from @fatquartershop was waiting for me yesterday! I’ve already dug into #ahoy by @gingiber. The mini was part of the #flashsale and I picked up the @sweetwaterfabric charm pack to go with their other Christmas line(from a couple years ago).
My scraps have gotten a little out of control since I’ve been working on finishing projects. This #100dayproject is perfect for me to keep the scraps at bay! #misserincrafts2018#Repost @wendyfranczak with @get_repost
Hey friends! I was thinking... how about we do #the100dayproject together! We could each work on our own Scrap Vortex quilt! (If you don't know the tutorial, check out @crazymomquilts blog! Swipe to see mine!) I'm going to start tomorrow April 3 with more scrap gathering and sewing pairs- atleast one pair together. Repost or comment below if you're with me. We can share our progress by using #scrapvortex100DayProject
Removable tucks for when he grows taller...why, yes I did that on purpose! Thus the intentional design element button in photo 2! I may have accidentally added 4 inches to the length when I glanced at big brother's measurements 🤣Well, of course I could have just cut it shorter but what about that cute coordinating hem! Waste not want not! Sewing while having a severe headcold has its hazards but at the end I got them done and the two oldest have their pjs headed their way! #starwarsandbatman#pajamas#sewingfailsaved#sewyourstash2018#stopstashingstartsewing
