Le Petie - January

This month for Le Petie we made Miss Rosie's Quilt Co mon ami. I made mine out of Sugar Pop with a little bit of kona bone for the backing. I had a lot of fun making this one as always, but I don't think I will be working with any half squared triangles anytime soon...

Stash Report - week 1

I know this is a little late but better late than never...

3 1/4 yards for this baby quilt

One of the people that my mom works with is having a baby so this is what I came up with. This is the first quilt that I have been able to make completely from my stash! I was so proud of myself in being able to use my stash to make the quilt and so was my husband because he asked if that means that I have enough fabric now. We all know the answer to that :)

This is block 5 and even though I completed it on time I forgot to post in time. I have made a promise to myself that I have got to get better with posting and I am make slow but sure progress.



I have not order anything this week, but I do have a good bit coming in for week 2. Even though there will be stuff coming in due to the snow week that we had in Georgia there was a good bit that has been used.

In: 0
Out: 3 1/2

Postage Stamp Quilt Along

I have always wanted a postage stamp quilt, I used to always ask my Grandmother for one. Every time that I would ask her she would tell me I'm nuts and ask if I had seen how many pieces there are. So when I saw Rachel at PS I Quilt was doing a quilt along, I knew I would have to join! Even though there are a lot of pieces it should be made much easier strip piecing it. I am using a Verna jelly roll with some Kona white. I hope to have my 5 strips sets together tomorrow.

Layer Cake Quilt Along

Ok, so I got a little behind with blocks 3 & 4 on the layer cake quilt along. Between the holidays and my machine breaking I completely forgot about it during December. Once the new year started I said told myself that I was going to do a better job of keeping up with it. So I did block 5 right after the instructions were posted, but I didn't take the time to post my picture and missed the deadline again. Well today I made sure that I have posted all 6 blocks to flickr and thought that I would post a picture of all the blocks that I have completed so far. I used a Bliss by moda and the more that I play with the fabric the more I love it. I think that I might have to stock up on this soon, it is just so pretty :)
