25 Days in 12 Days of Christmas

So the math may sound a little screwy but it just HAD to be made.
The "in-laws" were here for Thanksgiving and this sadly had to take a back seat to the festivities.
It's too bad that real life has to interfere with my sewing life. :o)

This happy fabric line makes me love Kate Spain even more.
It's a wall hanging advent calendar (with sleeve) with large pockets (the larger the chocolates the better, right?) and it's in the shop.

Gobble Gobble Turkey Day is Coming!

Better late than never right?
I know I'm not the only procrastinator out there.
I was seriously "sitting" on this projects in one form or another for probably at least two months.
This fabric (Gobble Gobble by Sandy Gervais for Moda) has made it's way into many a project as well though this might be my absolute favorite.
It's 20" x 39" and in the shop.
Happy Turkey Day!

Whimsy Quilt

Toddler Quilt in Whimsy by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda - 41" x 60" in the shop.
I'll have a pattern for this up too in a bit.
It was so fun to make - it practically assembled itself...

But seriously, how cute is this fabric line?
Vintage children's toys with dots and rickrack... and words!
I LOVE fabric with words... is that strange?

Trespassing with Fandango

Oh, yes I did! I HAD to though! Okay, so maybe it wasn't THAT necessary... But it was fun and made my day slightly adventurous... pathetic, I know.
The golf course is right across the street from us and it just looked so pleasant today.
This new quilt friend is all half square triangles in Fandango by Kate Spain for Moda.
It measures 49" x 59" and is in the shop with more pictures.
These little flags of beautiful fabric are just sooo cheerful I love them.

On a side note, have you ever discovered you are covered in what my husband has termed "thigh dandruff"??
Well, apparently knit pants are great for collecting the little fuzzies that fall off of all the pinked edges of Moda's precut fabrics.
Not to worry...
It just means I'm having a great day!

Twirl Skort in Alexander Henry Apples

Just thought I'd share my opinion on this little pattern...
It's the Twirl Skort by Sew Sensible and it is definitely awesome.
My daughter (sadly) hates dresses.
She'll wear them only when it's "dress time" - like church (or any other event I can convince her is a dress only place to go).
So this is some perfect middle ground for her.
She loves the hiding shorts under the apples.
They look more like a second skirt layer which makes me happy too.
And I don't have to tell her all day that no one needs to see her princess panties... :o/
I really do have to tell her that a lot in dresses and skirts.
So I think I'll also make some of these with just the shorts so that she can wear them under other dresses and skirts.
Maybe she'll even decide she like dresses then!

I also made a matching apple appliqued t-shirt to match. And she looks so stinkin' cute that we had to take photos (all morning in this perfect 72 degree weather).
It's an Alexander Henry fabric... with a coordinating brown dot fabric (Tweet Tweet by Keiki for Moda).

Doesn't this just look like the perfect kind of presents?
Fabric ones that you don't have to wrap or clean up after... :o)

Definitely been in "Christmas mode" of late.
Fabric is Fruitcake by BasicGrey for Moda.
It's 22" x 25.5" and it is also in the shop.

Figgy Pudding Table Runner

Well, the weather isn't cooperating for beautiful pictures...
I guess fall/winter/spring has come as they are kind of one season in Texas (mind you we are still running the A/C... )

But I'll at least show you what I made yesterday and today that's finished.

It's 28" x 19" and the fabric is Figgy Pudding by BasicGrey for Moda

There will be more pics in the shop...

I also have another runner in Fruitcake also by BasicGrey that I'll get pics of soon... I'm quilting it now.

Up next on the machine is a baby/toddler/lap quilt in Whimsy by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda.

Then a HST quilt in Fandango...

I must be nesting with all these projects underway...

We have 8.5 weeks... AHHHH!!!

Pink Lilly and Will

This is a large baby quilt for my cousin. She's (finally... after 2 boys) having a girl.
Pink Lilly and Will (Bunny Hill for Moda) is SUCH a cute line!
Love, love, love!

All half square triangles...

Damask print back in pink.

Plaid pink for the binding.

Hope she loves it!
