Something New and Something New

This one is pieced... Maybe it'll get quilted tonight.  I've loved this red/aqua combo and these delicious little characters on Aneela Hoey's little apples.  Aneela's blog is fun to read too!  See the little hambone in my photo! 

And LOOK what was in yesterday's mail!  My Bonnie and Camille Ruby fabric!  It might be too pretty to cut yet!  This is destined to be a wedding present for someone!  Camille Roskelly's blog is another of my favorite reads!  All of her things are so matchy perfect!  Someday when I grow up, I'm going to be matchy perfect....maybe.
Gearing up for the weekend!  Hope yours is wonderful.  It's supposed to get cold here in beautiful North Carolina.  Perfect weather for sewing but I'm not so sure that I want to watch a double header on Saturday morning when it's in the 40s.  The life of a baseball mom!

A Productive Weekend!

This weekend was a great time of finishing things up!
The 4 pillow covers for the sofa,
 This baby quilt sandwiched, quilted, and bound!
 I really love the way the quilting looks on the plain yellow kona cotton backing!  The stars really show up with the light grey thread.

 And this new quilt is on the table!  It's a plus quilt made from Aneela Hoey's Little Apples Fabric!

Children at Play!

A more traditional quilt with a bit of wonkiness!  This quilt top is made from the super fun "Children at Play" fabric by Sara Jane for Michael Miller fabrics.  I only have a few of the "boy" prints which are included here but I have many of the girlie pink fabrics from this line and can't wait to start on them!  Maybe this one will get quilted this weekend (between baseball games and A Christmas Carol rehearsals!)

Have a nice weekend!

I've been wanting to do this for a long time...

Today marks the time when I finally got busy and started the blog!  It may look tacky for a few weeks but give me time.  I will figure all of this out!  Here are some photos of recent projects!
 This is me.  You won't see many photos of me on here.  I'm a little camera shy!
 This is a recent baby-boy quilt made with the sickeningly cute Pooches and Pickups fabric!
And finally, a close-up of my crooked seams!  Ah well, when you wash it the crinkly goodness is irresistible!
