Super proud of myself that this one finally got finished.  Baby Emma was born in April, so better late than never! 

I have another one that is very similar that I made for our baby.  I am slowly binding it while watching television the few nights we have been home.  We are trying to pack in a lot of last minute catch ups and entertaining before the new baby arrives. 

This quilt pattern came from the Material Obsession Two book and the pattern is called, “Playground Days”.  Very easy to make and a bright cheerful quilt for the next generation.

Spring Projects

Prints Charming hosted the most amazing sale the other weekend.  We arrived a hour after opening and the place was almost cleaned completely out!  I did manage to steal away these gorgeous panels for a new quilt for our little girl S. 

It is coming up to the end of school and sewing term, so I brought these along to get some help with in terms of alignment and what to do with the actual panels.  I had a few ideas, but it is always so helpful to get your project or intended project in front of a group of like minded ladies who like to sew and the added bonus of using the design wall. 

I was short one panel and was going do make a pieced middle when Kathy of Material Obsession came to my rescue and found a panel by Prints Charming that matched perfectly.  It is the panel that is now in the middle of the quilt. 

Next thing to do was to start pulling fabrics and trying to sort out the border for the new project.  I think we got some winners in the pile and I am going to be incorporating lots of my stash.  Somehow whenever I use something out of my stash I feel so good because I think I can go out and buy some more new fabric.  Is that crazy or what? 

I have been working away at night at a new quilt for baby number three that will be born in a month.  Can’t believe how the time is going by so fast!  Never enough time  to get all the projects sorted. 

It isn’t helping me that this project walked into the shop while I was there.  I can’t get it out of my head and I know I will have to make it……..it is meant to be.
