The challenge is to use AccuQuilt dies to create a 40" - 48" baby quilt

AccuQuilt generously provided the Island Batik Ambassodors with an


I chose a mixture of Island Batik stash builder fabrics and yardage.

NEW Favorite LQS and NEW Project! Modern Baby Clam Shell Quilt from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Okay, so the advice I got from you all from my last post was pretty evenly split down the middle between quilting another charity quilt for more practice versus attempting to custom quilt my Paint Me a Story bear paw quilt with my current skill set.  So last week I quilted nothing in real life and designed a compromise project in EQ8 software instead.  

The new project will be more interesting to piece than what I'd choose for a charity outreach project, but not nearly as complex as any of my WIPs that are anywhere near quilting stage.  This ...

Guess Whoooo is Here? from The Cozy Quilter


A colleague at work is having her second baby any time now and her last day of work is tomorrow.  I started this quilt last week and finished it up on Tuesday night.  I brought it to work today to give it to her.  I included washing instructions!  Mom was thrilled with the quilt and promised to send me pictures of the new baby and her big sister with the quilt.


The name of the quilt, "Guess Whooo is Here?" came from the owls on the white fabric.  The quilting is a wavy cross hatch.  I used some solid yellow ...

Frank and Another Baby Quilt from The Cozy Quilter

I want to start today's post with a thank you.  On Friday, an envelope arrived in the mail with more DMC #318 thread in it...and it matched the thread I have been using on my Frank Lloyd Wright Fountain Glass counted cross stitch project.  Thank you Karla for sending the thread to me all the way from Kansas!  The thread wrapped around the lower cardboard holder is my thread and I cannot tell the difference between it and the two skeins sent by Karla. I now have enough to finish my picture!  (Thanks again to Cathy, Carole, Pat ...

Revisits for Unbelievable Cuteness from Creatin' in the Sticks

How life can change in one year.

I posted this tutorial last year
over on the Thermoweb Blog
before I knew I was going to be a Grammy.


Yesterday, my sweet Grandbaby modeled the outfit for the first time...


She just makes the outfit so much cuter and I'm so glad I kept it for her.
This is her first photo sitting up on her own, too.
She is sitting on a blanket my mom (Great Grammy) made for her.
I just can't believe this could be any cuter.


This was another tutorial from this year over on ...

Next, I made a table of stars in Word and printed them on one of my favorite
fusible applique tools, HeatnBond ...

It's Fashion Friday from Creatin' in the Sticks

I have to take a little pause in the 30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days Blog Hop and Quilt Along
for
Fashion Friday 
over at Thermoweb.


 I must tell you when I saw this sweet novelty cotton knit fabric, I couldn’t wait to sew a little outfit. 

 Knits can be tricky, especially the less expensive ones, but with the help of HeatNBond Soft Stretch Lite adhesive, the task of sewing stretchy fabrics is easy. 


 A little t-shirt was transformed into a sweet little dress in an afternoon. 



 You will find my free tutorial for this t-shirt dress over on ...

You're One Cute Chick - Split Skirt Onesie Tutorial with Deco Foil from Creatin' in the Sticks

One thing I've learned by sewing for this sweet baby is
comfort is not only the number one priority in her clothing,
but she won't tolerate anything but comfort.

She makes everything "over the top'"cute, so there's no need for lace and frills
and this grammy has such a pretty model for all the little projects!


She's growing fast and has a lack of appreciation for uncomfortable dress-up clothes. 
 This is what led me to create a tutorial for a split skirt onesie over on the Thermoweb blog.

Now she can wear a dress and ...

Drumroll, Please: MORE New Projects! Feathered Star Baby Quilt Variations Designed in EQ8 from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Oh, SHHH!!!  I hear you all, clucking your tongues at me in disapproval!  Designing new projects in EQ8 is GOOD for me, and this little detour from my immediate projects only took me about 20 minutes, I swear.

44" x 44" Feathered Star Baby Quilt, Designed in EQ8
Okay, so designing the "bones" of this baby quilt only took 15-20 minutes.  Click, click, click, done!  Then I spent another 45 minutes playing with different color schemes and fabric possibilities.

Same Quilt, This Time With Novelty Prints
And This One in Kaffe Fassett Collective Prints
How fun is that, to see ...
