Scrappy Square Boys Quilts

This is all very unusual for me. First of all, I actually finished not just one, but two quilts! Second, they are made for boys! I bet you didn’t think I even owned boy fabrics. Well, that just goes to show how old these quilt squares are. Some of them were cut over 10 years ago. These are almost my oldest unfinished quilts, but sadly, not quite. I used to make a lot of pillows…

Farmhouse Doll Bed and Star Doll Quilt Pattern

When my husband made doll bunk beds for one of our daughters, the rest of them wanted doll beds, too. So, this Christmas, I nagged convinced him to make another one. I actually tried to do it myself, but, as I suspected, he couldn’t handle my woodworking skills and jumped in to finish. He didn’t like the last doll bed he made so I suggested a farmhouse style bed. He made two twin size beds a few months…

Charm Square Quilted Purse

Another finish!!! I won a charm pack of Summer Breeze II several years ago and I eventually made myself a charm square tote out of it. It isn’t perfect, but I like it and it matches our school colors. I had enough charm squares left over to make another one, as long as I used a solid color on the bottom to make it stretch. I pieced the squares and then it sat on the…

Scrappy Squares Doll Quilt

The other day, since I had a few minutes before an appointment, I pulled up Netflix to finish an episode of Fixer Upper and sat down to hand stitch the binding on this doll quilt. Spring sports are upon us, so with the rushing around all of the time, it was awesome to just sit down and relax for a little bit. AND I got another finish done from my Finish-A-Long goals (see HERE). Double…

Red and Aqua Sampler Doll Quilts

I give up. I am tired of waiting for the doll bed to be fixed. I am tired of waiting for decent lighting. I give up. Even though it was overcast and raining today, I took some plain pictures inside of those doll quilts that I finished almost a month ago so that I could post them here. I am too much of a perfectionist sometimes! I got the over-achieving idea to make sampler quilts…

WIP Wednesday ~ Productive Week

I thought I would do another WIP Wednesday post to share what I have been doing around here lately.  I may not have blog posts up to prove it, but I have been super productive! I finished up 2 out of 3 doll quilts, but did not get any pictures of them yet. Those sampler ones took so long that they deserve a full blog post. 🙂 Plus, there is a piece on the doll…

WIP Wednesday ~ Doll Quilts

I have a lot of sewing projects going on right now. A few weeks ago, I did my first ever free motion quilting! Now, don’t laugh… For a first time I don’t think it is too bad. I still need to add the binding to this scrappy doll quilt.  After my practice round, I quilted two more doll quilts that I am making for my daughter. These sampler blocks took for. ev. er. so I…

Finish-A-Long Goals Q1

I have been proudly showing off all of the things I have actually finished lately, but for each one, there is probably 2 things that are unfinished and 10 things in the grand ideas stage. That is how it is for me in this stage of life. One day I will have lots of time to sew, but that day is not today. However, there are some things that my girls are waiting on, and…

Vintage Sewing Machine Mini Quilt

When I made Grace’s quiet book sewing machine page a friend of mine joked that she would take a wall hanging like that, so I made one for her as a surprise. I added some hand embroidery on the “table” below the machine. It says: Good friends are like quilts- they age with you and never lose their warmth. I even tricked her into choosing the saying. Heehee! The background is leftover from Halley’s retro…

Unicorn Doll Quilt

Well, I kinda‘ had a quilt finish this year. You see, I will let my girls pick out fat quarters at Joann’s when they are on sale. Let me remind everyone that fabric shopping with 5 girls in tow is NOT fun– for me, them, and the store employees. Recently, Grace picked out this one with unicorns and hearts in pink and purple. I mean, what is not to love for a (then) 3yo girl?…
