Alright, so I have been a bit behind with quilting as we have our house on the market. That means for the last couple of months, we have been getting rid of stuff and reorganizing the house. Lots of fun with a toddler :) So the animal panel quilt has been put on hold. I actually didn't like the colour of the backing for the quilt, so I am looking for a different material for the back. Instead, I am making a clifford the big red dog quilt for my son's bed. It is going to be hand quilted :) This quilt will take some time as it is fairly large, BUT I do have it started so I will actually be posting some pictures soon. I PROMISE :) I miss quilting and posting my pictures.

Animal Panel Quilt

The next quilt that I will be starting is an animal panel. I will be hand stitching the main part of the quilt. Once the quilt is done, I will be giving it to my nephew who just turned a year old. It is quite large, so he will be able to use it for quite a few years :) Pictures will be posted once I get the backing material and sandwich the pieces together.

Noah's Ark

Alright Everyone! I finally have pictures of the quilt. There was definitely a learning curve with this quilt. I didn't use a pattern as I thought that what I wanted to do for the front and back was straightforward, it wasn't. So After piecing the front and back and starting to sew it together, I needed to take it apart because it wasn't matching up. I also had to redo the strips on the front. I think it turned out well but definitely need to practice a quilt like this again to feel more confident. I love this panel and the way the hand stitching turned out. I hope this quilt is enjoyed for many years by my friend's little boy.

Finished Quilt!

Hello Everyone!

I am terrible at posting pictures apparently. I have pictures of the quilt that I have finished but they are not on this computer, so I will have to post them tomorrow. The quilt was very much a learning quilt, not what I wanted when it was for a friend. I am glad that I persevered through it but will not do that quilt for someone until I practice it again.

Tried a business

Well, instead of making quilts and posting them here for everyone to see, I ventured into trying a business on facebook. Lots of comments on how wonderful my items are but not very many sales or input into the fabric I should buy, or different items that I should make. I am glad that I tried this because it allowed me to try making new things (bibs, ribbon blankets, dinosaurs, pillows, etc). However, I have since realized that I much prefer quilting, even if it takes me much longer to complete one! So, I will be updating this blog much more often as I am currently trying to finish a quilt, and I have one more that I am starting in just a couple of weeks :)

Quite the Hiatus

Well, I see it has been quite awhile since I last posted any new items. I have been busy with an active baby, (who recently turned 1). I am working on blocks, taggies, and I am going to try a couple of bibs. Will upload photos as I complete an item. Looking forward to getting back into quilting :)
