January Quilty Progress

Wow, January is almost gone!  How did that happen?  I have been able to get some projects done this month though. 
These first two are sneak peeks at a couple of quilts that I've made that are scheduled to be in some upcoming publications ~ I've been getting some practice in on my HandiQuilters :) 

[Note: The first quilt is made with a fabric line called Indigo Blues by Fabri-Quilt, and the second one is made with a fabric collection called Robotics from Birch Organic Fabrics ~ both lines should be in quilt shops by March]

This one is a customer quilt that I finished today (can you tell that I'm enjoying the loop-d-loops?)

Here's more of the customer quilt...I love the Kansas Troubles fabrics in this one ~ so warm and rich :)

Enjoy the day!

New Little Helpers

The New Year has brought new schedules.  I've been busy keeping up with work and quilty jobs, but mostly I've been trying to keep up with these two ~ my new little helpers.  Over the Winter Break they moved back up here close.  Their Mom started a new job, so I've been on Grandma duty, spending time with my little Cutie Patooties during the day until other daycare arrangements are made.  So lately my days are full with going to the bus stop, sing-a-longs of songs that I thought I had forgotten, and pondering deep mysteries like: How many socks can two little girls own...and why can't they keep them on their feet?...and fitting in some sewing here and there during nap time and other stolen moments. 
My new helpers and I don't have any sewing that we can show right now, but we do have some more Mountain Baby Blanket donations that we're adding to our box that's almost ready to ship out!  Pat Wyatt, a Baltimore Applique Society friend, donated two of these cute little quilts along with children's books to the cause.  We should have enough to ship out another box to the Appalachian Mountains soon :)

Enjoy the day!

Exciting News and a Give Away!

I have exciting news to share today!  One of my little quilts is being featured over at the Moda Bakeshop Blog!  This is my Sleepy Jean Crib Quilt and it's made with one Charm Pack of Honey Honey fabric designed by Kate Spain (plus a little yardage for borders, binding and backing).   It's really easy to make, and the cute little 34" x 34" size is perfect for naptime, or for a little one to carry around and cuddle with.  You can click on the link above or the button below to go to the Moda Bakeshop and see how to make it :)

I have the same quilt available as a fabric kit in the Hello Luscious fabrics designed by Basic Gray as shown below:

You can go Here to my Website to purchase this kit in the Hello Luscious fabrics (The kit includes all fabrics including binding & backing!)

***Just for fun and to celebrate, I thought we'd have a little Give Away!  Leave a comment on this post for a chance to win a Moda Charm Pack of your own (Charm pack will be chosen from several fabric collections that I have, so what you receive will be a surprise!).  I'll chose one random winner on Sunday, January 6th :)

Enjoy the day!
