Trading Funbots

Funbots!

I’m making some robot toys for the Robert Kaufman spring quilt market booth. They’re completely inspired by Ann Kelle’s Funbot fabric. And BOY ARE THEY FUN! This boy gets bonkers everything he gets to help play with them as I make them. They completely bring out his inner silly. (His #amineko, Green, is in for […]

ROAR for Crockett

I need to wash and dry this puppy so I can get good crinkly shots of it, but it’s useable now, which is why it’s in use on the floor this very moment. Crockett likes it. Midnight likes it. I like it. YAY ROAR!

Sailor’s Delight doll quilt

(the quilting says: made for Leonora, with love, Mama, 2013) quilt back quilt front I was trying to figure out the colors to use on this quilt, and the Bean came along to “help” then she sweetly asked if she could pick the fabrics, so she did. and my spectrum mug rug became a purple/gold/pink […]

A quilt for Kai

Xmas makes

Knitted leggings for the baby guy. matching pajama pants for all three kiddos from Dr Seuss flannel (and a coordinating blanket) some embroidery (went on a bag as a gift for my friend Lori, master knitter)
