Works in Progress

Hello! I've got a few things going this week. I finally finished the quilting on my "I Love 2 Quilt" wall hanging. This is a pattern that I tested for Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts way back in June, 2014! I started the quilting that summer with the intention of free motion quilting all the white space but I never got around to it. I decided to finish it just using my walking foot and I used a wavy line stitch. I really like how it turned out! Now I just need to bind it and hang it up. :)

I pre-washed the fabrics for my kids' new bedroom curtains. The constellation fabric came from Connecting Threads and glows in the dark. That's for Max's room and he's so excited! The navy with tiny white polka dots is for Annabelle's room. She needs a bit more navy in her decor so this will fit the bill.

I'm excited that several of my microwave bowl cozies have sold through my Etsy shop recently and I need to replenish my stock. My first instinct was to visit Connecting Threads' website and pick out some new fabric to order but, since this is the year of the stash, I went through mine and pulled a bunch of fabric I can use to make more. I found quite a bit and I'm very excited!

I'm linking up today to WIP Wednesday and Let's Bee Social.

  1. I love the brights in your "I love to quilt" quilt. That's sure to make any sewing room happy. And I do love that constellation fabric, and it would be great even if it didn't glow in the dark!

  2. Your I <3 to Quilt mini looks great! I would be as excited about the constellation fabric as Max, LOL - it is fun! And how awesome is it to make Etsy sales and need to re-stock. :)

  3. This is absolutely gorgeous! Is that a sweet owl print I spy on the iron!? I LOVE owls! Who is that by if you do not mind me asking? I love how colorful this is too! I love the quilting too! Very pretty!

  4. I love your 'I Love 2 Quilt' quilt. :D I love your fabric selections! :)

  5. Hee. Love the rainbow "I love to quilt" quilt - definitely caught my eye in the link-up over at Freshly Pieced! Beautifully done!
