In all the excitement..

…I forgot to blog!

The quilt was completed!  😀  I can now say that it got to its destination in time for the baby shower, too. 😀

This was so fun that I decided to make another one of these as soon as I finish up these couple of bags I need to work on.  The next will be using the fabric line The Littles by Michael Miller and will have Riley Blake Fly Aweigh waves for the backing.  I’m excited for all my “parts” to come in so I can get it going!


Since this post took a little time, I’ve also been to my guild!  We learned improvisational curves from Jayne and perfect machine binding from Stefanie.  I even got a new gadget!  It’s The Binding Tool and it’s probably right up there with wonder clips as far as amazing.  It really helps to clean up where your end pieces come together.  I think we all had a great time and we all made some pretty cute things!  Here’s what I made.

cut, pieced, quilted!

I finished mine up once I got home, and now it's hanging up in my sewing room!

So now that we’re all caught up, this weekend is Paducah!!!  I’m excited, me, my mother in law and aunt are all loading up Saturday morning to go see what all the fuss is about, also Hancock’s.  If you also want to see what all the commotion is about, follow me on Instagram this weekend.  I’m going to be using #PQW2015 so everything should be (SHOULD…be) together.  It looks as though the weather may not be..pleasant, but we’ll make the best of it!  I know a few others from my guild are also making the journey to Paducah, are you coming too?  Let me know!!

Well, I’ve got some pre Paducah preparation planning to get back to, so until next time!  Happy sewing!

P.S. Al had to jump into my photo shoot of the quilt.

So majestic....

Super Cute Baby Quilt

I managed to finish up my baby quilt top before my quilt guild meeting on Saturday, and of course!  I was so happy we had show and tell!  And I got to show off my “hard work!”  Okay it wasn’t really hard at all; it was more ‘hey, just sit here and sew these little strips to these squares, stop doing other things.’  I love show and tell…in my head it’s intimidating and I’m like “holy crap, they are amazing and I just sewed some crap together” but in real life it’s like “oh wow we all sew and we’re all good.”

I’m excited because it’s starting to look like this quilt MAY ACTUALLY BE FINISHED!  Soon anyway.  I sandwiched my batting and backing, and I got all my quilting done, and now…I’ve got all my binding pinned on!!!  Oh yea, it’s getting pretty serious.  Binding is probably my least favorite part of making quilts, but I know once I get the hang of it that it will be just fine.  I’m also starting to think maybe I should just suck it up and make my own binding instead of buying those pre made, pre folded things of quilt binding.




Anyhow, I hope you guys are all having a nice week!

Until next time, happy sewing!
