Another Block I've worked on,
this is from the SWOON quilt pattern,
it's my tester block,
not to shabby for my 3rd ever block if I may say so myself, I did pretty well with my 1/4in seams because came out perfectly 24.5 in just like the pattern calls for :D

This will get worked up into a Doll Quilt with cordinating Birthday Doll.
Any takers on calling DIBS so you can customize the hair & eye color?
shoot me an email if so

Mini Quilt = Pillow

One of the finished Mini Quilts from the SewAlong over at Fresh Squeezed
I ended up turning it into a throw pillow, it also was my first PIF suprise of the year.
I just busted out three things at once- new block practice, first pillow, first PIF.
Not to bad for the first 2 weeks of the year

Pic 1 the top, its the courthouse steps block - with my own twist, the last two rows became the borders.

Pic 2 here it is sandwiched & quilted

Pic 3 the pillow insert, made of muslin & stuffed with fabric scraps (to small to do anything with, odds & ends of thread etc. ) such a great way to use them up- something I learned from the Sassy Blog
the back is a thicker canvas

Pic 4 All done & ready to gift

mini quilt step 2

Step 2 from the post below done

It turned out to be the perfect size for the doll.

I can't wait to get the set up for yall to see (& buy!)

Thinking of doing another for an ACU doll I have in the works.

Check on back next Tuesday for what it'll look like after step 3.

New things~

Here's a before picture of a mini quilt for a SewAlong I'm following over at FreshSqueezedThe mini quilt will cordinate with a Masako Doll that I just finished up. Should be listed soon

One of my goals this year is to learn more about quilting, here's a picture of my first quilt block.

Whatcha think?

Here's what I'm up to in the office...

Tuesday, January 3, 2012


This year I'd really like to learn more about quilting.
I've set a few goals for myself to help me along.
I'll be trying my hardest (while still sewing for the shop) to follow along with

1. the Challenges over at I don't have a problem, I have a well rounded fabric stash
2. Scrappy New Year Quilt A Long with SassyBlog
3. Sew-along with Fresh Squeezed
4. Craftsy's free BOM

Now I'm even like "wow, hey, hold on" I figure if I pace myself and focus on one a week- theres 4- then it shouldnt be too bad. Right?
I even sent up my desktop calendar for this!
1 project a week.
Plus sewing for the shop inbetween, stock shop once a week (hopefully) maybe biweekly, or once a month. Your input would be great on this.
When? How often? to stock the shop???
