Sew-n-Tell

Posted on September 18th, by Amy in sew-n-tell, work in progress. 35 comments

I can hardly believe that it’s Friday again – this week has been fast and slow all at the same time! Sew-n-tell is organized by ms. Amylouwho and all are invited to participate – yes even YOU :)

Remember those Panache fabrics? Last Friday I cut them up, and started putting them back together — the end result — a quilt top for my sister!

A peek at the details -

And my helpers -

Looks nice and sunny out, but just a few hours later we had this – he’s pointing at the lightening he just saw, and was about to run into my lap for the thunder. Poor boy – still gets to him.

However by bedtime (for the kids) we were rewarded with this beautiful sunset.Really pretty, and more beautiful in person. I hope you have a great … Read More »

With my sewing machine – yay! I managed to find a few minutes here and there over the weekend to work on my sisters quilt. I’m hoping to have a quilt top to show you really soon! I hope you are well -Amy—————————————-

Here We Are

Posted on September 11th, by Amy in My kids, work in progress. 27 comments

This mama is a little emotional! The first day of kindergarten is exciting and new, and a little bit hard. Sophia’s first sentence this morning was “I’m 5 now too.” She wanted to go with her sisters and not be the one left at home. We all sat on the kitchen floor for a few minutes explaining how fast the hours would go (it’s 2.5 hrs!) and that we would get Emmalie as soon as she is done, and then go back for Ella, of course.

I was reminded of when Ella went to kindergarten, Sophia was 3 months old, and Emmalie was 20 months. Thankfully Joe was a Pastor at the time, and worked from a home office. But still, it was a lot! It was also the first time that Emmalie reacted … Read More »


Getting There

Posted on August 20th, by Amy in Doll Quilt Swap, work in progress. 24 comments

Hi there! Just a quick post to check in with all of you. This has been one of those weeks – you know the kind. When nothing is normal, and finding motivation is a challenge. Little Sophia seems to have a flu bug, and is currently asleep on the couch. I’m praying that it doesn’t spread – say a little prayer for me too – k?

Yesterday I finished up my DQS7 quilt top – I really like it! Now to decide how to quilt.

Also from the list, the sample bag is half complete, and I’m half way around Sophia’s quilt binding. I think I will go sit for a bit more with it now.

Many blessings to you today ~Amy—————————————-

A To Do List & Drama

Posted on August 18th, by Amy in My kids, work in progress. 24 comments

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to complete the survey – lots of great info there, and it is helping to get me even more excited for the Fall Quilt Festival! If you haven’t done it yet – I would love to have your input too!

Our weekend was a little dramatic – on Sunday our Emmalie was spinning on her foot in the kitchen, with a cup in hand, when she slipped and fell – face first. It happened so fast! She was in immediate pain, and bleeding, I was the one dressed so we scooped her up and ran to the hospital. Thankfully it is just 5 minutes away. In the end she has 4 stitches on her bottom lip and chin – but owie! That is a painful spot … Read More »


The Quilted Quilt

Posted on August 14th, by Amy in finished quilt, quilt-along, work in progress. 61 comments

Usually I wait until I have bound and washed a quilt to post, but this quilting was so inspired and I love it! I had actually thought I would be selling this quilt, as my girls are no longer babies (and I’m not having more!). BUT, Sophia claimed it, we “tried it on” her, and after all the quilting I’ve grown pretty attached to it. It will be staying here! Even Joe mentioned it would be a little sad to sell it since I’ve put so much effort/time into it!

Here it is – do you see my addition?

There’s a heart, stippled right there -There’s a bit of puckering on one side of the heart – if I do it again I would do the heart first. Live and learn :) I’m hoping it … Read More »


The Quilting Process

Posted on August 11th, by Amy in work in progress. 17 comments

For me, I like to try things that may be a little unexpected. Go with the flow to a point, but then add my individual point of view that makes it my own. What about you?

I’ve been quilting my zig-zag quilt – and I love it so far! Of course there’s a twist, but I’m going to save it for when the quilting is complete :) I’m really looking forward to showing you!

Also on my mind – Fall Quilt Festival! Need to get a few things lined up in my head, but I’m looking forward to that too. I’m amazed at how many people are daily looking through the links from the spring. Lots of great inspiration!

Blessings to you ~Amy—————————————-

Zig-Zag Quilt Top

Posted on August 5th, by Amy in work in progress. 54 comments

Hi there! Did you miss me? I’m still here, I needed to catch up on a few things and I wanted to finish my zig-zag to show you!

I like this one a lot – super girlie and really fun! I did learn a few things making this one, when working with half-square triangles (hst’s) I prefer to press open. Also, explaining the process via words and pictures is a lot of fun. (I made a pdf with some handy information on it if you are thinking about a zig-zag – you can download it here.) Working with the smaller size was a nice change from my last finish too!

In other news — Today is Joe’s birthday! We are having a little celebration here at the house with brat’s and a curry potato salad (a … Read More »

What are you working on?

Posted on May 18th, by Amy in work in progress. 13 comments

After a week full of everything but sewing, I’m ready to relax with my sewing machine! We had a great visit with my parents, the girls were especially sad to see them go, but promises of phone calls and more visits have helped.

Yesterday Joe had a day off finally – and we headed for the hills! Well the mountains, really. We headed to Timpanogos for a family hike. We’ve collected two backpack carriers for such occasions, Owen and Sophia were happy to be on our backs and not on the path! There’s tons of trails up there, many still covered in snow, but about a mile in is a beautiful waterfall, bursting with all the melt-off of spring. Wish I had a little camera to have captured it, but sometimes the hike makes … Read More »
