Two Works in Progress

>> Saturday, March 28, 2009

I nearing crunch time. Though technically I passed it a month ago. I working on two baby quilts one for friend and one for family. The first was really due in Feb when the baby came but here is almost the end of March and I just started on the Rocket Scientist quilt for baby Andrew. I am sure his dad will forgive me seeing as how we have the same profession. ( I'll post photos tomorrow). The quilt has come along very easily thanks to my new Accuquilt (http://www.accuquilt.com/) which I bought from Nancy Notions ( http://www.nancysnotions.com/) at a great deal during the March Madness sale. I am loving it and oh the speed. It has made it so easy for me to do pinwheel squares which I was petrified of before. As for the other quilt it for baby Matthew Anthony and his Sister Caitlin. At the time she came along I was not a quilter so I feel it is only rightfully so to include them both in this " Kids at Play" quilt. I got the kit fro the quilt from my favorite etsy shop Nettiepete ( http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5122177). I just added a few of my own fabrics to it to spice it up a little. Well I post some more tomorrow and I promise to start include some site with technique links for those beginner quilters out there trying to learn on your own like me.


Long Time & Still Quilting

>> Sunday, March 15, 2009

Okay so I returned last week from the Sewing Expo in Atlanta. It was great and I learned a lot of new finishing techniques for my quilts. One of which is prarie points. I used those the pink quilt below. At the expo I fell in love with a PFAFF Quilt Expression 4.0 machine. But unfortunately and maybe greatfully my hubby did not let me buy it. Probably a blessing in disguise but I am still drooling over it. I also fell in love with In Town Fabrics in Atlanta. I going to have to make a day trip just to fill the few empty spots left in my fabric closet.

Anyway, I just completed two quilts over the last few months and have three more to make before May. So I wouldn't expect too many post between now and then...

These are also a wipe and diaper holder that I made " In the Hoop" to go with the quilt as a gift set.
