Step One: Fabric Washed


This is the pink and orange colourway of the fabric I used in the previous baby quilt. So cute! I loved making the last one and look forward to doing this one.

Summer's Coming!

I know it's been nearly a year since my last post, but summer is coming. And because I don't have to move across the country and start a new job this summer, I am thinking that July will be Crafting Month. The baby in the last post now has a new baby sister, so another Sparks quilt should be in order and I'm really hoping to finish up the Hawaiian Dreams quilt too. Beyond that...we shall see.

Ah, Finished Products!

I finished two longer-term quilting projects this summer. One was this Sparks baby quilt for a friend's little guy. Here is the quilt & the quilt + baby :o)

Made this sushi bag of fun for my friend Ellie- first time using a magnetic snap and it went very well, I would say!



Thanks to my friend Patty- project finisher extraordinaire- I actually finished the quilt in time for Ghenette and Brian's wedding. Huzzah! I am pleased with how it turned out. I was a little disappointed that I couldn't find the right green for the backing, but the stone colour is nice too.

Here it is on one side:

Quilt Top is Finished!

I am so excited that I am finally done the Plain Spoken quilt top for Ghenette's wedding present. I think I will practice machine quilting (on my NEW SEWING MACHINE!) on a quilt for myself before I attempt to do this one. Here it is, hanging on my wash line in the rain :o) So pretty. I hope she loves it. And Brian too... Click on the picture to check out more views on flickr.

A Little Bit of Sew...

So I have actually done a bit of sewing this weekend, refreshed from a few days off from The Children I nanny for.

Finished two bags- this is the first one, a shoulder bag for a friend:

Meagan's Bag

Haven't taken pics of the second one yet, I want to wait for better light.

Also, here is an update on the finished baby quilt blocks. Now I need to cut the sashing and sew the top together, I only have until October and I am the biggest procrastinator I know!
