Social Sewing

While things have certainly been progressing for me professionally in quilting, it has meant a lot more "secret sewing" recently. It can be fun and exciting to work on projects behind the scenes, but I honestly really love when I can share more about the process of a quilt as I go along on my blog. So, I am...

Flight Path

In late April, I learned that one of my friends was pregnant. About a microsecond after she told me, my brain was already thinking about the baby quilt I would be making. I reached out to several of her other friends, and in the end 7 of us collaborated to make this special quilt. Today, I am really excited...

Fitted Crib Sheet Quilt: Take Two

I published a tutorial a month ago on how to turn fitted crib sheets into quilts. I had been approached by people interested in having a very coordinated baby quilt to baby sheet option, and it worked out surprisingly well: there is a lot of fabric in a fitted crib sheet. Since then, I have purchased several sets of...

Diamonds in the Deep {Friday Finish}

I am really excited to say that this baby quilt version of the Diamonds in the Deep pattern is currently on its way to my "sister" in anticipation of the arrival of my nephew in June. I used Kona solids for the front: Royal Blue, White, and Lime. I really like how the splash of lime in the center of the...

Collaborative Baby Quilt

My mother and I collaborated to create a baby quilt for close friends. My mom pieced the quilt top and made an AWESOME quilt label. I did some quick piecing for the backing, quilted, and bound the quilt. Mom passed along the quilt to me when I was at QuiltCon, and I got the quilt done and shipped barely...

I was able to get back to sewing the Tuesday after I returned from QuiltCon, and I dove right into a stack of quilts I had ready to be quilted and finished. The first quilt I completed was the fitted crib sheet quilt. I trimmed down each sheet to 40 inches wide by 50 inches long and added a simple...

I am excited to be able to reveal a quilt to you today that I made at the end of July. I was approached by a group of friends who wanted to work with me to make a baby quilt as a baby shower gift. We emailed back and forth, and to enhance the experience, we decided to go...

Owl City {A Baby Quilt Tutorial}

My local fabric store was offering 30% off all fabric in their store to celebrate the 4th of July. While I really wanted to purchase much more fabric than I did, I had a budget and I stuck to it. Looking around the store, I noticed that they had just received some really cute owl prints. I chose my...

Dragon Quilt {WiP}

I went to my stash this weekend and pulled up a fabulously fun print that my mother-in-law found for me at a yard sale a few years ago. It is about 1.25 yards of fabric, and the print is so fun that I didn't want to really cut into it. I quickly decided it would be the "backing" for...

After much frustration and time spent away from my sewing machine cooling off, I was able to finish the quilting on the Spaceship Tic-Tac baby quilt today. I had originally hoped to complete this quilt on Wednesday, but my sewing machine and I were disagreeing about that! I was able to use thread that I had on hand for the...

Spaceship Tic-Tac – Piecing

My favorite part of any quilt project is piecing the top. I love seeing how a pattern comes together, and it it super fun to flip through the photos and condense time to see the top come together. Instead of having you flip though photos to get the effect, I put together a quick timelapse video. Spaceship Tic-Tac Pieceing Timelapse...

I just completed Color Weaving I, and it is currently getting its first wash. I am looking forward to seeing how it crinkles up! I decided to go with an all over "robot boxes" quilting pattern. I think it works pretty well with the quilt design, and I am hoping that I will work on my piecing precision enough to...
