My Cheerful Scrap Quilt

I’ll let you in on a little secret. Most of the time when I start a new quilt, I have no idea what it’s going to look like. Before I know the pattern, I start with finding really fabulous fabric. A beautiful quilt has beautiful fabric. From there, the inspiration just comes to me. I […]

Baylor Quilt

It has been awhile since I’ve posted a quilt update. Or any update, for that matter. I’m still trying to find the right time to practice my beloved hobby in between work and spending time with that darling family of mine, and writing, and well… you know, living life! AndĀ hand-washing sippy cups. OH MY WORD […]

Cross Quilt

I bought this fabric ages ago… back when I was pregnant with Wrenn (she’s now 18 months old), and it sat on my shelf for the longest time as I waited for the inspiration to hit me. And waited… and waited… and birthed a baby, and nursed a baby… you know, I had a lot […]

Cross-Eyed Quilt

Sometimes I buy fabric, and I have no idea what to do with it. So, it just sits on the shelf of my sewing studio, occasionally I pull it out and admire it, steal small corners for other projects (if you look closely, you’ll recognize two of these fabrics from one of Wrenn’s dressesĀ I made […]

Low-Volume Quilts

Low-Volume Quilt Defined: This is a quilt using very light, muted fabrics featuring mostly whites or light-colored prints. This past weekend little Wrenn took a 3.5-hour morning nap, and Mr. Right was at work, which meant I had some rare, uninterrupted quilting time! I’ve got two low-volume quilts going right now, and I am in […]

This time, the quilt is for me

I’ve been quilting for five years and have never made a quilt for myself. Until now. Meet my Sentimental Log Cabin Quilt. It’s sentimental because I used scraps from past quilts that mean a lot to me. The blue polka dot on the center of each square, along with the zebra print, are from Wrenn’s […]

The big reveal! Wrenn’s Baby Quilt!

I’ve made a lot of baby quilts in the five years that I’ve had this little hobby of mine. But I must say that this one was the most special by far, because this time it was for MY baby girl and not someone else’s. Squeal! Mr. Right helped me pick out the fabrics, because […]

Wrenn’s Baby Quilt

I got started on Wrenn girl’s baby quilt over the weekend. I was able to get the whole thing cut out and a design created, and then I ran out of steam and needed a nap. But at least it’s a start! 10.5 weeks to go ’til she gets here and I need it done. […]
