A Christmas quilt

My 6 yr old said he loved this and that it was my best one yet :) I'm hoping to drag myself to Jo-Anns on Friday for a big sale on flannel. I'm shopping for at least 7 quilt tops!

It's a boy! (quilt top, that is...)

This quilt would be great for a little boy, but you know, it's neutral enough that it would work for a girl too (there's even a touch of pink in it...) It would be a perfect baby shower gift for the mom who is waiting to find out... Anyway, it's not done yet - has to be backed with a soft and bright flannel.

All the animal prints came from an IKEA duvet cover I bought a couple of years ago - very whimsical creatures.

Scrappy log cabins

I have three huge and overflowing plastic tubs filled with various sizes of scraps, and I decided that I need to start using them up or they are going to take over my sewing room! Here's a start with 49 blocks measuring 7.5 x 7.5. I need to keep going as I've only used up about  1/100 of what I've got! I think I'll make a couple good size throws and then a few crib quilts. It's a fun and satisfying project.

The last of the Blogger's BOM blocks!

There were 13 block tutorials, and I ended up with 14 blocks, so I must have added one from somewhere else along the way, but that's OK. What fun. I look forward to October 25th when we find out the suggested way of putting them all together.

Have to say though that two straight days of HSTs has wiped me out, and that's a bummer as star blocks (heavy on the HSTs) are my favorites!

Gypsy Caravan quilt top

A Gypsy Caravan quilt coming in at 40x48, and wondering if I should go bigger... more 10x12 blocks or a nice thick border?? or, am I done? - much prettier in person, but photographed on a rainy day :(

Blogger's BOM catch up: blocks 7, 8, 9 and 10

Color alert!

On a recent trip to Hobby Lobby's sewing department to pick up embroidery floss (to quilt all the quilts that are fresh in my shop!) I spied some very loud and gorgeous fabric and had to have it. When I got home, I paired them with some Jennifer Paganelli fabric and some Heather Bailey Pop Garden fabric and voila! The colors and patterns are so yummy and bright...

Nicey Jane

I have spent the last two days putting backs on most of the quilts I made over the summer and look forward to weeks of hand quilting in front of the tv with the hubby watching the new fall line up!

I still have a few projects in the works - taking up corners of my sewing room and the twin bed that takes up too much space in my sewing room, but yesterday had to start another baby quilt and it came together easily as I was working with one of my favorite fabric lines - Nicey Jane....
