DWMonday ~ Baby Quilts

I’ve needed to get these quilts done for a month! We have a new set of twin boys at church. I decided to use up the rest of these fabrics to make them.

I’m using this die from Accuquilt .

I wanted the quilts to be similar, but not exactly the same. Here are my tentative layouts.

My goal is to finish these this week. Have a good one!

Arizona!

Oh, how I love this place and these faces! Here are some random photos from our trip. Little L is such a happy guy!

Big L is quite interested in coconut trees, so we bought a coconut so he could see it in real life. He bravely tasted the milk and coconut. We very carefully used a hack saw to cut it open so he could use the shell for a drinking glass.

We went to a LEGO Discovery Land in Tempe.

I got to see my beautiful grand pups!

And Daughter #2.

Dollhouse Chronicles

I have a new addition to the dollhouse this week in the form of a tiny set of dishes!

There are four of these enamel ware place settings so kindly gifted to me by blog reader, Susan.

Aren’t they adorable? They also fit perfectly on my little shelf!

Thanks again, Susan, for your kind heart and generosity. Have a great day, everyone!

Finish It Up Friday ~ Vintage Stars

I totally changed my mind on quilting this and decided on a light custom job.

And it was really fun to quilt! I think I got into a panto rut and it was fun to break out of that.

This plain muslin backing came with the top and I went ahead and used it. I love how well the quilting shows.

Binding came from my stash.

It feels good to finally have a finish. Have a great day!

EPP Progress

I got all of two of these pieced on my trip to AZ. Added to the three I made while traveling to Iceland gives me grand total of five.

I’m just cruising along on this project ( cough, cough).

I have more basted so we shall see if I can make any more progress this week. Have a good one!

Another Quilty Treasure!

This is another quilty treasure from Arizona.

I found this at the same antique mall as the little quilt I shared on Monday. This vintage top came with a poly batting zigzagged to the top and no backing of quilting.

I removed that before I left to make more room in my suitcase.

This top is entirely handpieced and I find its imperfections quite charming.

I love all the feed sack fabrics!

This is a good candidate for hand quilting this winter. Have a great day!

Six Pointed Stars

Remember when I picked up this top and was considering replacing the cornerstones? I got some great ideas from all of you, but Kathy D. left a comment that really made sense. She asked what the end goal was for this quilt. If I was going to donate it some place, perhaps it wasn’t worth the time and effort to replace them.

That clicked with me. It will be donated to Quilts of Compassion . So it’s time to get this baby quilted!

I’m deciding amongst the following pantos.

Two weeks ago we headed out to Arizona and just got back, so this should be a good project to ease back into sewing.

Have a great day!
