Finally Making Quilts Again

So, I’ve finally started making stuff again. Feels really good. I want to say thank you to those of you who have started following me on Bloglovin. I really don’t deserve it since it’s been 10 months since I’ve last posted! But I do appreciate it and I have a very good reason for my dry spell…..

That little guy (our 3rd one) has been keeping me quite busy. But he is starting to sleep a little more (emphasis on the word little) and so I’ve started missing this space. I’ve actually started a new quilt, have plans to finish two other ones and have a nice little tutorial in the works for making half square triangles. I know I also need to get on board with a Facebook page and Pinterest (I do use both a little personally) but I’m going to create pages just for this blog sometime soon. I know I’ve gotten a couple of emails about that!

So, when I’m not wrangling the little one above, I’ve actually had a chance to turn this stack of fabric (it was a Moda layer cake….Bluebird Park, I think?)

into this….

which I ironed into these…

and turned into this block. 🙂

I can’t wait to get the whole quilt top done! I found the layer cake in my stash (I bought it when I was pregnant and then totally forgot about it…was a nice little surprise to come across) and went to the Moda Bakeshop site and found this quilt pattern. I love how the finished quilt looks so complex, but it’s very simple to make. Can’t wait to see how it turns out.

  1. So glad to see this post; I’ve only been quilting for eleven months, but your blog was one of the first I came across, and I love your posts, and your quilts. Congrats on your little chap, and I look forward to future entries!
