Arcadia... Is this my 5th?

Let's see...
There was this one.
And this one.
Oh, and that one too.
Yes, and another over there.
Even some coasters.

I've loved this fabric line for a LONG time. 
Fabric line is Arcadia by Sanae for Moda.
I've been hoarding some quarter yard cuts and additional yardage. 

LOVE the backing print.

And especially those nested circles.

This one ended up being a large baby or small lap quilt size at 42.5" x 47".

In the shop

Birds and Berries Part 2

I almost forgot to post this one. 
It's going under the tree for my little who for Christmas.
I think it will be a great little throw blanket for her future bedroom.
We move Dec. 22 - yeah, just in time to make Christmas MORE crazy. 

The fabric is Birds and Berries by Lauren and Jessi Jung for Moda.
I did exclude the purple colorway from the rest of the line. 

Oh I'm getting more excited for Christmas just looking at this!!! :D 


I've had a BLAST sewing this one. 
Such vibrant colors. 

A rainbow rectangular prism.

Fabric line is Cuzco by Kate Spain for Moda.
Makes me wish one of these babies was going to be a girl.

In the shop. SOLD.

Just realized this is my 200th post.
That actually implies a lot of stitches.

I also realized sometime three days ago that it is easier and faster to finish projects you've already started then to start and finish completely new ones.
Seems like a statement of the obvious, but I really think I put things away thinking, "eh, I'll do that one later when I get more time."
Yeah, like I'm ever going to get more time.
In fact, I'm 20.5 weeks pregnant with twins... there won't be any more time for a long time.

Back to the stitches.

On deck today:

A granny square table runner in Joy by Kate Spain for Moda. These blocks were the leftovers from the "production" of this quilt.

Some very happy coasters in Meadow Friends by Deb Strain for Moda.

A small table runner in Birds and Berries by Lauren and Jessi Jung for Moda.
I only used the purple and coral for this one.
I couldn't find any way to make the purple work with the blue for me...
They weren't even combined in a print so I figured I was allowed to exclude them from each other.
I actually have a quilt in the rest of the jelly roll... I should post pictures of it tomorrow.
I'm keeping it for my little who.
As I was quilting it (no, not cutting, piecing, basting), I realized it matched her future room colors and that she would NEED it to throw on her bed. :o)
Yeah, it took me that long.

And some coasters in Summersville by Lucie Summers for Moda.
Loved this line.
I have a twin sized quilt in these fabrics that needs to be quilted.
That project lost momentum when we moved...
Lame me.

These have all been listed in the shop. :)
