Summersville

This finish was a LONG time coming. 
I remember working on this one about two years ago and getting all the way to completed quilt top and then we moved. 
And it lost its momentum and sat.

Once a quilting project gets put on the back burner it's really hard to pull it back out because the ideas and projects keep piling up on top of it.

This one is a whopping twin sized quilt in almost all red and cream from the Summersville fabric line - there's a hint of black in the binding for contrast. 






In the shop.

Comma Yellow and Grey

Well, the children sleep on so I'll keep typing.

You never know exactly when that will happen again.
If ever... 

So those other colors I pulled out of the fat quarter stack I bought at Quilt Festival ages ago were earmarked for this project.

Seriously fast and easy fat quarter quilt. 

I'd tell you when I'll have the pattern ready, but I'd just make myself a liar I'm sure.




In the shop.



Have you noticed my boxes?
Garlic, Onions, and Potatoes?
I was all twitterpated with them at the antique shop we went to the other night.
My husband asked me, "What are the junkie little boxes for?"
Haha. Men.

Comma Baby Quilt

Another little baby quilt. 

In Comma by Zen Chic for Moda.

I set aside many of the golds and greys in the line to create this concoction. 

 

In the shop.





The half square triangles in this quilt are the left overs from making the shared baby quilt for the twins. 


It only got a picture with Parker since he decided to mark his territory during this photo shoot.

Oddly enough (as seems to happen with most things I make) it's now being used by my older boy in place of his quilt that is still under construction.

Farmer's Wife in Reunion

SERIOUSLY!?!?

I last posted at the end of August... I'll bet everyone who reads this knows exactly what happened.
Yep.
The HOLIDAYS with four kids.
Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, two birthdays (hubs and son) and Valentine's Day.

Sometimes I think we should get rid of half the holidays just because of the chaos they introduce in my life... but really, I do love them all.

Well, quilts.

There have been some made during this last HUGE absence of blog entries... so I'll slowly start sharing them, or quickly. I never really know.

Up first... the project that made me feel productive while I was tied up with twin babies of the leeching variety - the Farmer's Wife!

Every little block felt like I had completed a whole quilt.

And eventually I did actually complete a whole quilt. :)







In the shop.

Partly Cloudy

...with Sunnyside by Kate Spain for Moda.





Sunnyside is set to hit stores next month. 
I can't wait to get more of it... 
Especially the yardage.

(I got this fabric for doing something that I still need to share about. It seems like there just aren't any spare minutes these days to get to what I want to do... meh. Twins will do that to you.)

Modern Patchwork Christmas Tree Quilt Pattern

Sometimes I get so lucky.
Like today when the babies slept synchronously all day and I actually had time to do something. 
Like this.


Now available here. and here
Merry Christmas!!

It's a little bit warm outside

but Christmas comes early for quilters.
Really early. 
It's awesome. 
The non-quilter world just doesn't understand. 
Like the In from the Cold fabric line by Kate Spain that made an appearance recently.

I've had this idea swimming in my head for a while. 
My very loving husband held the twinners for me so I could sew a bit here and there until it finished. 
Which reminds me... 


Parker Eli and Preston Emery haven't made their debut on this blog... oh, the sweet babies.
So much sweeter when they're sleeping too. hehe.

Back to the quilt... 


It's wall-hanging size.
I do plan on writing up a pattern for it in the very near future... just tell those little boys to go back to sleep. :)


I had a bit of fun with the quilting.


It had me singing Christmas songs again. 
I'm sure everyone around here really appreciated that part.


One more...
