Baby Girl Monogram Quilt


I found these quilts on the Riley Blake website a few months back and have been itching to find a time to use the tutorial.  The hard part about this quilt is knowing the baby’s name before a baby shower.  I tend to give my quilts in advance of the birth—never good to take a […]

A Straight Line Quilting Disaster


  I posted recently about the baby quilt I made for my nephew and how I ended up having to rip out the entire baby quilt’s worth of organic straight line quilting—not fun, in case you were wondering. I had a really hard time deciding how to quilt this because it’s all straight lines and […]

My New Little Nephew’s Quilt


My sister-in-law is pregnant with her first baby (so excited!), and she asked me to make the quilt for his bedroom.   She decided on neutrals with pops of navy, and the inspiration room she found on Pinterest is loaded with cute accents like deer antlers (that will be my brother-in-law’s contribution), driftwood, etc.  It’s going […]

Girls’ Twin Quilts


I just recently shipped these two matching twin quilts off to their new home.  These were ordered a couple of months ago for a girls’ room.  They were custom made, and I love the fabrics chosen.  The walls in the girls’ room are pink, and I think the aqua and white front will balance it […]

ONe Way to Mend Kids’ Pants


I have two little boys, and fortunately, I got lots of hand-me-downs from a friend.  I’ve noticed, however, that pants seem to be somewhat elusive.  I always end up with plenty of shirts from other people or from shopping sales, but pants are always in short supply.  I’m not sure if it’s because they’re less […]

WIP: Twin Chevron Quilts


This past week I’ve started working on two twin size quilts.  They’re for a custom order, and I just love the fabrics that were chosen.  The fronts are a basic chevron, and the backing fabric is the cute tree print with a strip of the pink down the back.  They’re for two sisters. I’ve finally […]

Happy Valentine’s Day!


       I’ve been working on a few things for Valentine’s Day.  The first project is one I made for my Secret Sister at the church I attend.  Last year I tried not to do too much sewing for my secret sister because I knew she could easily figure it out.  However, other ladies ended […]

A Quilt for Baby Joseph


After a LONG blogging absence, I’m back with my most recent project.  My good friends recently had a baby (right after they moved to Alaska!), and they’re coming back to visit family in February.  I’m helping to throw a shower/meet the baby open house, and this is what I’ve made for the gift:   This […]

WIP: Baby Quilt


I’ve just recently finished (maybe) the quilting on this baby quilt.  I can’t decide if it needs another line of quilting down the middle of each chevron or if it looks good as is.  So, I’m going to ask my customer which she prefers and let her decide.  The backing fabric will also be the […]

WIP: Custom Baby Quilt


  I recently had another order for a chevron baby quilt, and I’ve just finished piecing the top.  The coral fabric pictured is for the back and binding, and it will be hand quilted with a matching coral thread.  The colors are just beautiful together.  The colors here are a little paler than in real […]
