Catching up on the blog...

Its been a while since I have posted on my blog... I have finally gotten back to quilting. My husband was not working for a while and when he is home I don't usually get any quilting done because I much rather spend my time with him. But when he is away my evenings are free once the little ones are asleep and that's when I get most of my work done. I have finished three quilts since January. Two of them are on my Etsy Store right now as I have far too many quilts in my home right now I thought I would give selling them a shot. 

My first quilt I finished in 2014 is one my mom purchased a quilt kit from a local quilt store. I was so frustrated as the "homemade" pattern was wrong and they gave me the wrong sizes of fabrics... but I was able to piece the back and make it work and figure out the other errors before I messed the whole thing up! It turned out great and we just found out we are having a little girl in June and this will be perfect for her! Thanks Grandma ;) 

My second quilt I finished in 2014 is one that is for sale in my Etsy Store. It was done with the pattern "Fun with Fats" it was extremely easy and could easily be done with a jelly roll as it was all 2.5" strips. I purchased the pattern and fabric back in 2006 and it was the last of the fabric I had purchased for a specific project. I am trying to de-stash my stash by getting busy! Space is limited and my fabric storage closet is soon going to be a nursery closet. Gotta get busy! 
Why did I put this quilt off for almost 8 years? I have no clue... there were a few fat quarters I did not care for when I looked at the fabric but now that its all together I a really happy with the outcome. And what an easy throw quilt! Only took 12 fats! 
I also had fun free motion quilting this one... I love this part of quilting! 

My third and final quilt I have finished thus far in 2014 is another Jelly Roll Race. I made one back last summer for a Relay for Life auction but this one I added two boarders and it made a really nice size quilt. This was made using Moda Tapestry. 
 Hard to see in this photo but that's the backing fabric, if you look close you can see the free motion quilting in the brown thread.
 This one is also in my Etsy Store!

 My next goal is my New Years Resolution which is my double wedding ring quilt. I have been busy sewing Cloth Diapers and Cloth Pull-Ups for my little toddler and his baby sister due June 11th. So a little break from quilting but not sewing :) Thanks for stopping by :)
