I've actually been working on some stuff! To the detriment of my working out, but whatever. I can't do it all! 

I pieced together a layer cake that my mom gave me for Christmas. It's not done. I need to get fabric for a couple of borders! It's too small in it's current state. I was going to do some fun offset squares thing, but decided to just do this because I really want to practice my quilting. And.. I was lazy. :) I love these colors, though, and I think it goes nicely with our couch and bookshelves!

This is a baby quilt that I pieced and was going to hand quilt for a friend whose baby is now 2, but never did it. So a friend of mine (whose mom owns a quilt shop) took it for me and got it machine quilted and finished the binding for me! :) I love how bright and happy this is for a baby quilt!

This is a purse, kind of. :) I am going to quilt it, but I was too tired by the time I sewed the whole purse, flipped it, and realized that I put the batting in the wrong spot, so it was on the outside. So I un-sewed(that's what my mom and I call it. We even call the little tool an un-sewer, just for fun)  the whole purse and tried again. I can't wait to get at the quilting, but today I need to exercise for a while! 

Love in Him,


  1. Making a quilt is on my bucket list. It's one of those things I've always wanted to do, but I can't sew to save my life.

  2. I love the look of fun colorful quilts like this - great job!

  3. Let's see if you have word verification...

    Yep, you do!
