Slow going

Things have been slow here.  When real life gets a little crazy the blog is the first to get put on the back burner.  I was really sick with a pregnancy...and then really sick with the loss of that pregnancy...so about the last thing on earth I've wanted to do was sit and write a silly blog post about fabric/sewing/quilting!  Luckily I'm feeling a bit back to normal and anxious to start on some fun projects I've had on hold and start sharing in this space more. :)


 I've been staring at this bundle of Carolyn Friedlander's latest collection Doe for Robert Kaufman.  That black and white triangle print has my heart.  I hate unwrapping these pretty bundles!


 A few more Metro Living bundles from Robert Kaufman.  I've already opened that top one...the colors make an awesome boy quilt. 


 Bloomerie Fabrics is hosting a QAL making Wallflowers (more info here, and it's on sale in my shop here).  I've had another Wallflowers on my list of to-makes for over a year now...so this was just the push I needed.  This time I'm making it without sashing I think?  We'll see.  :)

Orange + Black


We are a Halloween loving family (except all the creepy/gory stuff…gross).  This year we are in a new home in an awesome neighborhood, and neighbors warned us to prepare for 1200 trick-or-treaters.  Last year we had 0…bring it on! 

Anyways…I’ve been in a Halloween mood and broke out all the orange and black fabric I own for making pillows. 




Pillows for the couch and for the porch….and they match my Halloween quilt perfectly!


Halloween Quilt, Cluck Cluck Sew

Did I mention sewing with orange + black kind of makes me want to poke my eyeballs out?  ;)

Some Coins

Fall Fabric Stack, Cluck Cluck Sew

I haven’t made a coin quilt since 2008!  It’s the pattern that got me truly stuck on quilting.

Back then I had 1 baby that slept most of the day…now I have 3 big babies and I want to sleep most the day!  Crazy how fast time flies.

Fall Coin Quilt, Cluck Cluck Sew

I went with a semi-fall palette for this one.  I sewed it together randomly without looking at placement at all…and it’s funny how many of the same fabrics ended up right next to each other…oh well.  :)
