ONe Way to Mend Kids’ Pants

IMG_8219.jpg

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

IMG_8240.jpg

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!

IMG_8226.jpg

       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

IMG_8203.jpg

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

IMG_7660.jpg

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

IMG_7644.jpg

  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 […]

Super Tote

  I’ve had this tote finished for a while, but it was on my wayward SD card, so I haven’t been able to post about it until now.  These are the only two pictures that survived, and this one is a little yellow looking, but you get the idea. The nice thing about writing about […]

WIP Wednesday

IMG_7569.jpg

I’m finally back to blogging after at least a month long absence.  I’ve been having some major computer problems as well as an SD card crash, so even when I’ve had a computer to blog, I’ve had no pictures to share with you. Tip of the day:  back up your SD cards.  Our 16 gig […]

WIP

IMG_7473.jpg

My latest project is actually a remake of a very old one.  This was a quilt I made just under ten years ago, way before I knew anything about machine quilting or the online quilting world (did it even exist back then?).  Anyhow, it has been looking a little sad because I never quite finished […]

Chevron Quilt

IMG_7448.jpg

I recently finished a custom chevron quilt like the baby blanket in my etsy shop.  My client requested her son’s name appliqued on the front.  She sent me paint chips of the colors in his room, and I used my Kona color card to match them—what did I ever do before I bought the color […]
