Hi.

Welcome to my little blog! Here I am in my sewing room, I hope you'll stay a while and see what there is to see.

WIP Postage Stamp Quilt

WIP Postage Stamp Quilt

I have seen many postage stamp quilts that I love, so one night when Haley was in Yuma (and before I was even pregnant), we dove into my scrap bin and chopped it all up into tiny squares! I think they are two inches, I can't recall right now! Anyway, this is another project that I started out with gusto, but after a few strips I started working on something else. With this particular project, I don't feel too bad about it because I am always adding to my scrap pile, and I want this one to be as scrappy as possible! I love knowing which project each little square of fabric came from. I decided to alternate with white squares so each unique fabric would be able to stand alone.

I really should have started making blocks of 9 or 12 squares first, but I am just doing strips. Hey, whatever gets the job done, right?! I love postage stamp quilts so much,  and another Red Pepper Quilts project comes to mind. Check out Rita's inspirational colors and loveliness!

While this is not a hard project, it is very time consuming. I don't see this being finished anytime soon because I want it to be HUGE so I can put it on my bed.

Ah, I love random scrappy quilts!

My mother is in town right now and although I haven't been posting, we are spending our VERY limited time learning how to use my sister-in-law's PFAFF Creative Vision sewing machine, free motion quilting, setting up my mid-arm quilter, and finished a baby quilt for the shop. Oh, I also finished a custom order full sized quilt top, and just need to baste and quilt it. That always takes a while though! I'm also still working on my Layer Cake Sampler Along from Material Girl Quilts! This is all on the side happening slowly as I moogie my (now 2.5 month old) twin girls! They don't like it when I sew, so everything happens much more slowly, which is just fine! I love holding them and kissing their fuzzy little heads and watching them get bigger and stronger every day!  Emerson is 9 pounds, 10 oz and Elliot is 7 pounds, 14 oz. That was as of June 2nd. The are definitely no longer in preemie sizes, which makes for one happy mamma! One last thing, go like Haley's photography page on Facebook, she did an amazing job with the girls! If you are anywhere near Tucson you should check her out!
