Geared up.

I know what you're going to say...
a BOY baby quilt?
What happened?

Ha, just kidding.
It seems like most fabric lines just tend toward to the girl quilt...

This was a little fabric line by Benartex that I just couldn't quite pass up.

The checkerboard border.

Gears and dots. 
Very adorably boy fabrics.

Gears on the back in a different colorway.

Quilts + Flowers = Perfection.

And of course, the plaid binding.

It's in the shop.

Happy weekend stitching!!!

Blitzen Coasters

Have teeny tiny scraps? 
Make coasters. :)

These are all in Blitzen by BasicGrey for Moda.

My kids LOVE playing with these micro-quilts. 
I have to hide them for their own protection!
In the shop.

Kid's Clothes

This week was "clothes week." 

Not that anyone needed any clothes per se, but once the serger is running it's hard to stop it.
Both of my machines have a mind and a will power all their own!

A onsie and skirt for my niece, Claire. She doesn't know it's coming and neither does her mom. :)

This is an older and favorite fabric line of her mother's - Sorbet by Sentimental Studios for Moda. 
Plus, she likes blue for girls. 

A skirt for my little girl from Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille. 
The loveliest aquas and reds in their lines.

Some pants for my little man in the bike print of Lucy's Crab Shack by Sweetwater and in the cars and buildings print of Summersville by Lu Summers.

I can't even begin to explain how much he LOVES seeing these fabrics. 
I'm not sure if he's fully settled with the idea that he gets to wear them and touch them. 
Usually mommy's fabric is such a big no-no. :)

Overall, total success this week in the sewing department. 
Now the quilting department... 
I have a MILLION works in progress. 
Something needs to get finished to save my sanity.

Hope everyone has a good week. 
Thanks for stopping by.

Christmas Spirit and a little Whimsy

Also finished this little runner in Christmas Spirit by Holly Taylor for Moda.
It's a very beautiful and traditional Christmas fabric line.
I tried out the technique for half square triangles here.

Up close.
Binding is the dark brown Moda Marbles.

I also finished these little beauties. 

Both in the shop.

Vintage Modern

I made another orange peel Sashiko circles quilt this time in Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.

If you want one too, you can download the free pattern on my blog in the right side column.

I decided to make this pattern with the charm pack I bought after I flipped through it and saw this backing fabric. :)

Applique makes me happy.

Favorite fabric in this line was the red on pink houndstooth print. 
I bought some yardage of it for a future dress for the little princess. 
Better get started on those projects too.
I would love to know if there ever was a quilter who finished ALL of their projects!

In the shop.

Lucy's Crab Shack

Saturday always seems to bring at least one finished quilt. 
Today I have lots. :)

This baby quilt is in Lucy's Crab Shack by Sweetwater for Moda.

This backing fabric with swimwear on a clothesline just may be in my top 3 all time favorites for a quilt back. 

And don't get me started on those cute kite tail prints.

Or the bicycles! 
My little guy LOVES that fabric. 
I bought some more to make him something from it too. :)

In the shop.
