Some beautiful Terrain

This fabric line - Terrain by Kate Spain for Moda- was instant love. 
I could gush about the colors for days. 
I mean, look at that orange. 
I'm not sure I've ever met an orange I didn't like. 
And with the perfect purples, pinks, and teals... 
A recipe for quilting happiness for sure.

You should try to get this joyous fabric while you can! 
I hear it's going fast

A while back I got this lovely from a wonderfully nice man and then bought some more to make this very pokey zigzag quilt:

It's in the shop.

Modern Swirly Pillows

Okay, still a pathetic title.
But I have brain fog.
I got the boy's ear infections too.
Not complaining though because it means that dad has to take care of me and the kiddos and I get to sew. HAHAHAHA!
So, where was I?
Oh yes, those pillows.
Made these out of scraps from this quilt.
Swirly quilting and straight quilting.
Very fun, modern, and cheerful.

In the shop.

Hometown 2 (my titles are so creative)

Pictures as promised, a lap quilt in Hometown by Sweetwater for Moda.
I went for the off centered square in a square in a square block and enjoyed reading each and every "hometown" on those awesome fabrics. 
I found soooo many I had been to, a few that I would like to go to, and some that I had no idea where they were.
I've never had to read and quilt at the same time before. 
Oh, and Houston was on there TWICE.  :)

Available in the shop.

Home Sweet Home

Pathetic at sewing and blogging lately. 
I have lots of excuses as usual. Ear infections, messy house, laundry, gymnastics classes, etc. 
Maybe I'll get around to correcting some of those "problems" later... maybe.
On to the good stuff.

It's "Hometown" good!
Some raw edge applique letters... always a favorite of mine.
Plus, it 

Some little paper pieced houses... a new favorite. 
Always fun to try something different. 
I actually enjoyed it. 
What am I saying? 
Of course I enjoyed it. :)

In the shop. (as usual.)

I have more to show you soon. 
A lap quilt, coasters, a charity quilt, advent calendars, baby quilt... the list is forEVER long so we'll see how long it takes to get them all done. 
I know I can't be the only one who does this. 
And it's an endless game too. 
I bought another jelly roll, bali pop, and some other fun stuff yesterday at my LQS. 
Never a dull quilting moment. :)
