Hi there! I’ve mostly caught up on sleep and emails since being gone for the weekend – and want to share a few quilts and highlights from Quiltcon with you! My roomie April, and I had fun checking out Austin after the full days of classes and lectures. Here’s a few of the quilts that were hanging, check out the Modern Quilt Guild site for more pictures soon.

I know you all have told me it’s okay to have a stash….I just don’t have the space to store it! Someday when I have a studio – someday (sigh…) for now, I’m selling a bunch off.
ETA – Wow! Everything is gone – thank you all! My site will be down for a while today for some upgrades. I’ll be back tomorrow with my new pattern and a winner or two!

I hope that you aren’t getting bored of this pattern! I love the simplicity of it and how I’m able to show off the fabulous prints with this pattern :)
I love the back, almost as much as the front! I even used the alphabet on my machine to make a label – trying to be better about labeling. I stitched it down with my machine too, as it is a baby quilt, and I figure will be washed lots – mine always have been :)
This will be in my etsy shop soon, it’s a custom order, but I have others if you are interested, and I’m willing to do custom – obviously. he he
I hope you have a good day/evening — no fooling :)Amy
After seeing my pictures from Christmas, a friend on Facebook asked for a doll quilt for her little girl. At first I thought about doing 1 or 2, but I seem to work in threes when it comes to doll quilts! I couldn’t weed out my fabric selections – so three it is :) I love this combo and so another kitty cat quilt. Emmalie wanted to keep it – of course!
Sock Monkeys for dolly’s. I put a blue chambray on the back, and I love how the little faces are framed out. cute!
I think this little one may be able to be labeled improvised. The quilt I had made from these fabrics previously were fat quarters, and the remaining bits were strips, cut to the same width. Some I … Read More »
I spent some time adding bookmarks to my etsy shop last night. I was thinking I would like to offer you, my friends a deal. How about buy 2 get 1 free!? If your interested just let me know that you are a blog reader and I will adjust your invoice!
Have a great afternoon~Amy
A clean house/space does wonders for the creative energy! I’ve done other stuff too, but want your thoughts on these – if you please :)
Gotta run! It’s time to get Ella :)Thanks for your help!
I find myself smiling whenever I see them! They are just so happy :) And I am happy to be finished with all these bookmarks too. I hope each lady that receives one will be smiling as well :)
I will be shipping them off on Monday, and I am planning to add a couple of extra to my esty shop and see how they do there.
Hope you are enjoying your Saturday ~Amy
After my last post, I thought about cutting into some fabric and start working on a quilt. . . but I am a very sequential person. I cannot leave a project unfinished just because. Even if I am bored with something that unfinished item will eat at me until at last it is finished. That’s what I learned about myself this afternoon. I thought by posting it I would give myself permission to move on – but no. So here is my finished bag -It’s a little different than previous bags but I love it! I hope you do too. =) Click on the picture for more details and pics.Have a great afternoon!Amy
I had my next bag finished – but it did not look good =( I tore out two seams and now trying to figure out a different way to finish it. I had previously thought that working with cotton would be much simpler than the raw silk – wrong!I really love the fabric so I will finish, but I may need to work on a quilt that is in my head for a bit. . .
It is raining, really raining here. No kids outside, or walks today – bummer. Ella began quilting a dolly quilt this morning. She lost interest pretty quick, but will work on it soon again. I told her she is going to be a great quilter when she gets bigger, since she is learning all the stuff I am … Read More »
So I finally got around to making another bag to put in my shop! It has been on my brain since I made the original, but other items have seemed more important. I have one more cut and ready to sew just need a few hours – it is from the posh collection. So more to come, but for now the kids are calling!Click the picture to go to my shop for more pics and details.Have a great weekend!Amy
