This past month has been a whirlwind of work around here. I have been busily sewing like a crazy person. I have completed a designer block for a quilt that will be featured at Quilt Market called "All dolled up in SLC" sponsored by Riley Blake, and coordinated by the amazing Amanda Herring of the Quilted Fish. I am so excited to see how this quilt turns out!
On a recent visit to some of my favorite stores, I picked up this yummy little selection of fabrics for a fast, and cute quilt idea for my girls' room. I hope to have a pattern made up of this one for market. Sometimes you just need a quick project, especially when I have been sewing for what seems like an eternity on this little monster.......
Boy oh Boy do I have more respect for that amazing Kellie of Don't Look Now! This is her pattern, and I just can't seem to get all of those dots on there! This quilt was a special request for my sweetest sister-in-law. Her very first baby, a boy, is due around the middle of March. Can't wait to meet this much anticipated little one! Hope I can finish it up before he gets here!
To add to my mountain of projects, I have taken on this one.....
It is so beautiful! I wanted to try my hand at it, so I picked the stairwell to start in. The kids had really dinged up the walls during our neverending construction projects. We had the railing down for a few weeks, and in the process they developed a game called "suicide."
Needless to say, the walls paid the price.
My favorite part about it is how shiny it is.
It feels like glass. I am hopeful that it will be easier to clean.
And... to put your mind at ease, we put up the railing too... so no more "suicide" will be going on here.
Now I am off to finish up the final Rosie Tweet blocks so that I can show you the completed quilt. Hope this will happen soon, but I keep making new blocks for it. Maybe I am overthinking it.... Wish me luck, cuz I am going to need it! That Rosie Tweet is a Hymalaian mountain of stitching!
Do you ever get to a point when you just want to finish something? I think I am there, too many things going on at once makes me a little crazy.
