deluxe pin cushion from Crazy Mom Quilts

Welcome to finish it up Friday!

This morning I made a deluxe pin cushion and I LOVE it so very much! The pattern is in the book Sew Organized for the Busy Girl by Heidi Staples. I have a feeling I will make at least 20 more of these pin cushions. For real!
For this version, I dug into my most precious scraps of Flea Market Fancy and Katie Jump Rope fabric. The sweet floral that I used for the body of the pin cushion is my absolute favorite fabric at the moment...I only had a fat quarter of ...

chenille shams from Crazy Mom Quilts

Welcome to finish it up Friday!

My dear friend Tara and her family have been here visiting this week and it's been wonderful! They just left this morning and it was soooo hard to see them go. We squeezed in a little sewing time during the visit, which was delightful. We definitely had to squeeze it in, since we had 5 kids running (and crawling) around. A good time was had by all!

Tara gave me (and more importantly taught me how to use) an invisible zipper foot for my Juki. So, a project that spent a lot of ...

Sailors Take Delight {A finished Quilt} from Never Just Jennifer

I'm so excited!  I had a binding marathon and finished three quilts last night and I can't wait to show you!!  This is the first of the three.  This is also one of the items on my FAL Qtr 2 list so woot for that too!  This quilt has been a WIP since 2012??  I think.  All I know is that the blocks were pieced using a VERY wide seam, pre-my understanding of a quarter inch seam days...


It's made using half-square triangles which are then sewn into quarter-square triangles, finishes at 50" x 42 1/2 ...

bright baggy pouch from Crazy Mom Quilts

Welcome to finish it up Friday!

I was hoping to have a quilt finished today, but that certainly didn't happen! So, this morning I finished up a little baggy pouch that I had in progress. Once again, I am thankful for the accountability that this linky party brings. I certainly needed the push to finish something. Also, there is one less pile on my craft room floor. YAY!

This is a small sized baggy pouch, which is a pattern by Aneela Hooey. It's my third one from the pattern, and probably not the last! I used a mini ...

it's all about the scraps! from Crazy Mom Quilts

Welcome to finish it up Friday!

Late last night I finished knitting another rag rug. (Tutorial here.)
So many scraps were used in this project, specifically selvages (I love those little numbers peeking out of the middle!) and strings that are too narrow to hold a seam allowance. I used strips between 1/2" to 7/8" wide. Lots of them!
This rug is quite bulky, because I knit 3 strands together on size 35 needles! I may have been overzealous in my scrap usage, but my bowl of scraps is nearly empty now. So, it's all good!! The ...

It takes a Village – Finish from Factotum of Arts

I started this quilt, “It Takes A Village”, back in December. I think February, March and April, I listed it as my monthly goal for “A lovely year of finishes” but could not get it done. Well, I am ecstatic to say that have finally finished it!!

ItTakesAVillage_Front

It Takes A Village, started out as one of my Quilt Design a Day designs. I actually kept pretty close to the original color scheme.

While pulling the fabric, I decided to switch out the lighter brown for a Cotton and Steel print. I thought it added some interest into the quilt, while ...

Another week and to top it off, it ends with having a LONG weekend ahead of us!

My trip for the weekend was almost canceled as it is supposed to rain, I am spending my weekend in The Lake of the Ozarks with my Aunt and Uncle as well as a friend, I am pretty excited. I enjoy my time with the Aunt and Uncle, even just sitting in the house anywhere and watching the view with the rain is something that moves me to 'do'. After my Aunt got a hold of me and wanted to ...

catching up on bee blocks from Crazy Mom Quilts

Welcome to finish it up Friday!

This week I caught up on my bee block commitments. While it's not a big finish, it still feels pretty darn good! I know I said this before, but seriously, how do the months fly by so fast?!?!

These X and plus blocks are for Doris. She has a great tutorial here for making a 15" finished block. I didn't rush the fabric selection, so making the block took me awhile. I think that it paid off in the end...I'm quite happy with how it turned out! Selecting fabric with ...

good neighbors scrap happy purse from Crazy Mom Quilts

Welcome to finish it up Friday!
Quilt market is in Minneapolis this weekend, and since it's so close to home, it was an easy decision to attend. I needed a new bag, of course, so I sewed up a scrap happy purse using my good neighbors fabric! (Thanks for the wonderful suggestion, Susan Holman!) At first I thought it was going to be difficult to chop up the fabric, but actually, it was pretty fun! Hurray for that!
Sewing on the handles is a pain (literally and figuratively), but totally worth it! I sewed these on while I was ...

Lazy Sundays Quilt -- Blogger's Quilt Festival from Little Bunny Quilts

I really need to keep better track of my projects' statuses because this baby has been sitting quilted for months in our apartment and it only needed the binding put on it! Embarassing! Based on the last time I posted about this quilt, it looks like I finished the quilt last January, sent it to the long arm quilter with my mom one of the times she visited in May or June last year, and she brought it back to me when she came in November for Thanksgiving and has been sitting in my sewing space just waiting for me ...

Goals Met! from Sew Crafty Jenn

Hello everyone. I'm so happy that I have met all of my goals for the week! I got all of my February bee blocks done and they will go out in the mail today or tomorrow.


I finished my "little things" - mended a pair of my husband's pajama pants that I found in my cabinet from who knows how long ago, shortened some hunting overalls for my dad and added button holes to the sides of his face mask so he can comfortably wear his glasses. His overalls are made mostly of wool and the raw edges were ...
