Baby Quilt for Evie


This is a baby quilt for a good friend’s baby, Evie. Simple and sweet. Can’t wait to meet miss Evie!





Baby quilt for Landon


Here’s another baby quilt, but this one is for a special friend from work and her new baby, Landon. I love the Summersville fabric for a little boy! I love the loops my mom quilted on this one!





Here he is! Such a good snuggler!


Be Challenged Bee


I completed my first block for the Be Challenged Modern Bee that I am part of. Douglas was up first and his block was a challenge! He chose a shoenrock cross paper pieced block. I sure am glad I took Penny’s paper piecing class! I would have been lost without that class. It was pretty challenging, but I think more time consuming than anything. I love how it turned out! It ALMOST makes me want to make more. Oh wait, I pretty much did make one more. When I was visiting my parents a few weekends ago, my mom had no idea where to start needed a refresher on paper piecing. It worked out well for her because she was trying to troubleshoot her long arm for me and I paper pieced for her. I did make her put them all together, though! Here are ours together. Mine’s on the left, Mom’s is on the right.

New Camera Strap


I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to wear my camera cross body style and how it fails every time. So, I found this guitar strap tutorial on Pinterest. Are you confused by guitar strap? Well, I liked the idea and how it was made, so I adapted it to fit my needs! And it’s not too girly, so maybe my husband will approve of this one!


Stitch and Flip


It’s been a little while since I finished this quilt, but I had a hard time finding a place to take a picture of this full size quilt! So, in the backyard it was! I started this in Jacquie Gering‘s stitch and flip triangle class when she visited the KCMQG over a year ago. I had so much fun with the technique and it’s no secret that I love Jacquie! She is a great teacher and an amazing person. I sure do miss having her in KC! I have to give a shout out to my mom who did a fabulous job quilting this quilt! It’s one of my favorites!




The post wouldn’t be complete without a dog picture!
