My latest work in progress...
from this little guy...
And it's not even for the shop. It's so much more fun to work on things that you want to instead of have to. I cant wait to get this finished. I've been wanting to make this for over a year now and finally have a good excuse. Photos of the finished product coming soon...hopefully.

Hand Quilting Class

I know I have a lot of Arlington locals interested in quilting, so I thought I'd tell you that I just signed up for a Hand Quilting Class at Lone Star House of Quilts. I don't see myself doing a ton of hand quilting in the near future, but I've always wanted to at least know how. And with the class only being a mere $15, I couldn't pass it up. If you'd like to join me, please do! The class is going to fill up fast. It's being taught by an award winning quilter and is May 15th, from 10:30-12:30. Hope to see you there!

Check out all these adorable pinks. I love treasury's with random items are paired together, all with similar colors. So fun to look at.

Fussy-cut Bee

I finally finished march's bee block for Lisa.

I love how the brighter pink brings out the stamens of the flower and the darker pink draws out the leaf from the fussy-cut center flower.

Sorry it's late Lisa! Hope you like it!

Block of the Month Update

Not a lot of sewing has been going on around here lately. We've had sickness after sickness since the beginning of the year (literally, since day 1.) I have managed to sew 3 blocks though. Two for the block of the month and one for the bee Im participating in.

I got such a great response on my first two blocks for the Block of the Month, that I thought I'd share the blocks for months 3-7. (more about the Block of the Month found here.)

Btw, these photos turned out horrible! Sorry!
Block of the Month- months 3-7

These two (3 &4) are my least favorite out of all the blocks. I think it's because I dont care for all the fabrics. Especially the dusty pink and mustard yellow of block 3. I just dont think they go with the rest of the bright colors of the other blocks.
Block of the Month- months 3 & 4

The last (bottom) two might be my favorites. Love the fabrics and that the block patterns are a bit different than the others.
