Tri Something New

 It's been forever since I have been here. I am still sewing constantly but have become a lazy blogger because of  Instagram. I just finished my first triathlon that took 3 months to train for. I didn't even know how to swim when I started but now I love to swim. I learned don't be afraid to go out of your comfort zone and push yourself. 
 I had this stack of charm squares and thought I should finally sew them up into something. 
 I just finished this custom quilt for my neighbors daughter. I always love a star quilt! I used some of Melody Millers lovely new mustang prints. 
 Last but not least a pile of sewing I finished today. I love sewing boxy pouches and colored pencil rolls. I hope to be better at putting more of my progress here. Thanks for stopping by!

Minecraft Quilts

 Both of these quilts were inspired by the popular game mine craft. My nephew is moving into his new house and was ready for a newly decorated room. This is going to be his new bedspread. 
 Before I sent it home with them I tried it out on my daughters bed to make sure it fit.
 Second quilt was for another mine craft lover. The creeper face. I had such a great time making these pixelated quilts and now I have a son who wants one of his own. 

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

2 Baby Boy Quilts

 It's been a while. I have been busy keeping up with lots of custom orders and thought I would post a couple of baby quilts I finished. 
 I have always loved the All Star fabric from Riley Blake and since it's been in my stash I thought my Etsy shop could use a couple of boy quilts.

 Another favorite line from Michael Miller Sarah Jane fabric line children at play with some castle peeps fabric by Lizzy House. 
 The Back.
You can find these two quilts in my Etsy shop on the side of my blog. 
Thanks for stopping by.

Mendocino Quilt

 I finally dove in and quilted it. I went back and forth on what I wanted for the backing since Mendocino is so hard to find. 
 I love the mermaids!

 For the back I picked out this minky and kept the quilting simple.
 I am really glad I had the guts to cut into this instead of stare at it. 
Now I may be brave enough to do it again!
Happy Friday!

Briar Rose + Bizzy Kid

Happy New Year! I am happy to show you my first quilt for 2014. I am a huge fan of Heather Ross and couldn't pass up her most recent line Briar Rose.  
 I backed the quilt in this beautiful pink and red strawberry fabric. 
 I paired Briar Rose with some Lizzy House jewels in green, pink, and orange. 
 I have been wanting to revisit the bizzy kid pattern by cluck cluck sew. The bizzy kid pattern comes in 2 sizes a kid size and a twin. I made the twin size. 
I hope to be here more often in 2014 and share all the things I am up to. 
Thanks for stopping by!

Red and Black

 It's been nice to be back making quilts. This quilt was for a friend that went in for heart surgery. Her surgery scheduled for couple weeks away then it was bumped up to a couple of days away. It was a rush but I got it done. 
 I used red and black out of my stash and a big black and white polka dot for the back. 
So glad I can share with my friends and loved ones! Hope to be back here with a couple more finishes before 2014.

Out To Sea And NYC

 After all of the boutique craziness I was able to tag along on a business trip with my husband. It was my first time to NYC. So much to do in so little time. 

 Cute front doors of the shop. 
 There was inspiration everywhere in Purl Soho. I picked up a few of these beautiful felt bundles and a little fabric as well. My husband was very patient while I shopped.

We had so much fun eating, walking, shopping and going to plays! 
We will definitely need to visit again.
Before we left on our trip I had a quilt that I needed to make when we returned. I love a baby strip quilt It seems like forever since I made a quilt from start to finish. 

Out to Sea by Sarah Jane fabric.
