Another bunny

I saw this super easy bunny pattern on Martha’s website, so, since I had JUST enough gold ball fabric, I had to make this one too… The bean helped me stuff it! (so it’s a little lumpy)… now she thinks it’s hers… uh-oh!


I’ve pin-basted AND spray basted this quilt sandwich, but I still haven’t started quilting it!A)I really struggled with the quilting design, but I think I’ve settled on meandering diagonal lines.B) how to quilt it. Should I do it by hand? It’s REALLY big (california King, 112ish” x 112ish”), so manouvering it through my machine is […]

Last nights quilt blocks…

2 bee blocks (log cabin for Nicola, dots for Rache), and 3 Modify Tradition Quilt Along blocks for me, using scraps my mom brought me last week. I love red.

A birthday bunny for Tutu!

C’s grandma’s birthday is right around Easter, and she LOVES bunnies, and she’s an avid golfer… I saw a teeny scrap of this golf ball print at M&L last week (about 1/8 of a yard), and bought it to make it into SOMETHING for Tutu, and then realized it would make the cutest toy bunny […]

Trying to save the day….

My new ironing board!

My ironing board was sooooo dirty (old example with quilt blocks), so I ripped it apart (and saved the edge), got some insul-bright and some silver “ironing board cover” fabric, and put it all together. It’s awesome. Soooo sooo awesome.

my idea of heaven….

I bought several fat quarters (only $2 each!) and several regular quarters, and 1 yd of the owl print, planning on making one side of D’s sunhat from that, but then he wanted trains… Prices were as expected… obviously more than […]

Sunhat for a baby with a big head.

D’s head is already bigger than mine,(he’s outgrown his adult small bike helmet already), so it’s hard to find sunhats that are appealing, age apropriate, and will fit him. I made up this pattern last year, but he outgrew it, obvi. Here’s the new version. Green cotton seersucker on the “inside,” (it’s reversible, but I […]
