Fabric Ball | Dog & Baby Toy

This month’s Aurifil Artisan challenge is English Paper Piecing (EPP). I love EPP, and I love fast EPP projects, which can be a bit of an oxymoron. So, when I was dreaming up what I wanted to do this month, I ultimately landed on a toy for Riley! This soft fabric ball is the perfect toy for a small dog or a child! I don’t think this spoiled poodle honestly needs more toys, but IContinue reading

Queen Celtic Crossing | Finished Quilt

This quilt started as a dare between Jason and I. It went a little something like this: Jason: Do people even make quilts bigger than a throw size anymore?Me: Yes! People do it all the time!Jason: But you’ve never made one.Me: Challenge Accepted. I chose to go with Lo & Behold Stitchery’s Celtic Crossing pattern, it is one I’ve used time and time again and love for its simplicity and ease. Although written as anContinue reading

Etoile Quilt | Farmhouse Version

I started calling this my farmhouse Etoile quilt pretty early on! I think it is a combination of the gingham and soft colors! Whatever it might be, I am smitten with this version!

After I cut out all my pieces I timed myself to see how long itContinue reading

I decided to use a single fabric for the background, but the pattern does give fat quarter requirements as well if you wanted to go ALLContinue reading

2019 Finished Quilts

I finished 37 quilts (!!) in 2019. That number astounds me, because when I started quilting I never thought I’d make close to 40 quilts in a single year. If you want to make 2020 the year you keep track of your WIPs, you can download my free printable, which is what I personally use as well! I count a completed quilt as one that got finished within that year. So although some of theseContinue reading

Zippy Crossbody Bag | A Finished Project

The November prompt as an Aurifil Artisan was bag making. Although I’ve made quite a few tote bags and zipper pouches, making something that resembles more to a purse was totally new territory. Nevertheless, I forged ahead. After all, what are several more zippers? To dip my toe into purse making, I decided on what looked to be a relatively simple pattern – the Zippy Crossbody Bag by Sallie Tomato Patterns. I chose to makeContinue reading
