Sewing updates! =)

I feel like I've been cutting a lot and sewing a little . . . but here are some pictures of my most recent projects.  I'm linking up the Quiltstory - check out the button on my sidebar over there to the right!

1. Summer Quilt - - LOTS of cutting, not that much sewing - but hopefully soon!

I think I'm getting the hang of HST (half square triangles)

This a random assortment of fabric lines - - this is only a sneak peak - I'm keeping the final idea a secret - but let me just say - I think it will be awesome!

2. Sew-2-Speak's April block for April! =)
my first attempt @ applique!


3. New Wave Quilt - WIP - If you are Nicole - stop reading now!!

That's the hubby holding the quilt - keep in mind he is 6'5"
This is going to be a wedding present for my friend, Nicole.  She is getting married in 2 weeks ... and I'm pretty sure (~95% positive) she doesn't know about my blog - she loves to go on picnics and she appreciates homemade - and she doesn't have a picnic blanket.  So I thought this would be a perfect wedding present.  **If you want to make this - check out the tutorial from Oh Fransson here.  I used the suggested the fat cats ruler.

And that's what I've been working on in the sewing world.  Thanks for reading!

PS: here is a link up to the amazing quilt that Erin made from all of our blocks from the March 12 Month Quilting Bee - - I'm impressed w/not only how amazing the quilt turned out, but how fast she got this done!!!  Here is the post about my block.


  1. Ooo I am loving that wave quilt! Fabulous projects! Thanks for linking up :)

  2. It's great, and would be an excellent picnic blanket!

  3. So pretty! Love that wave quilt and all your fabric choices. Really nice!
