Little Quilts ...

Last year, I started sewing some little quilts ... A friend and a relative were expecting baby girls, and I wanted to welcome their babies with quilts.


I started months early, knowing that, since I was expecting my own baby, as well, I better get the gift-sewing done early, or it wouldn't happen.


I got little quilt tops started, using this pattern ...

For some reason, once the quilt tops were mostly done, I took a break & didn't work on them.


When my baby was nearly-due, and I needed a project to keep my mind off the "this baby's never coming" thoughts, I finished up these little quilts ... Two baby quilts, and a doll quilt for a toddler-big-sister.



This must've been a good "nesting" project - something I "needed" to finish before having my own baby ... My  little one was born the day after I finished the gift-quilts!

Getting back to the blog ...

You may remember the "Film at Five" quilt I mentioned in a previous post ...


I finished it in December. It was an especially fun project because I made it for my own new baby!


Needless to say, we've been a little busy around here lately!

But since there's always a quilty-project or two in the works, I'm going to get back to blogging a little more, even if it's just by way of phone-blogger-app!


T-Shirt fabric squares ...

We've had lots of these squares-cut-from-T-Shirts at our house lately ... The makings of some new quilts that are now listed for sale on eBay & Etsy ...

"Film at Five" quilt in progress

This one is coming along ... Inspired by the "Film at Five" quilt design I saw in this tutorial by WeddingDressBlue: https://weddingdressblue.wordpress.com/2012/09/24/tutorial-film-at-five-quilt/

This little quilt is made with a bunch of bright, fun batiks, and unbleached muslin.

I love it so far ... Mine is smaller than the tutorial -- It's a baby quilt, about 50" x 50".

Here's a picture of the partially-assembled quilt top.

T.A.R.D.I.S. quilt in progress

This one is almost done ... By special request from my oldest daughter. 

It's a T.A.R.D.I.S. quilt ... My own design, made of recycled T-shirts, based on the "Dr. Who" TV series.

The piecing is done. The lettering is done. The quilting is in progress.

I'll post more pictures after it's quilted.

Knitting Socks

For several months, I've been knitting these awesome fall-colored, striped socks. Last week, I finished them - just in time for Fall weather!


Have I mentioned how much I love self-striping sock yarn?! Watching the colorful (predictable) stripe patterns emerge just keeps the (repetitive) knitting process so interesting!


These are made from Heart & Sole's "Razzle Dazzle" sock yarn. Washable. Partly wool. Super-soft. These are now among my favorite cozy wintertime socks!

Little Zig-zag Quilt

I've been working on this here and there for a while ... Right now, it's about 35 inches square. Might add borders, or more rows, but for now, it's progress!
