The Longest To Do List

I think I am in the middle of more projects than ever before.

My friend Brooke got several of the usual sewing buddies to all sign up for the same class at Crimson Tate. We are doing the American Jane Merry Go Round Quilt. I am doing mine in Denyse Schmidt’s new Chickopee line. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this quilt. I really just wanted to hang out with my friends. But now that I have started it, I think I’m going to adore it.

Brooke and I are planning on doing Denyse Schmidt’s Single Girl pattern (again for me). I bought Tula Pink’s Birds and Bees line. I don’t want to cut it up. It’s amazing. The lady bugs are my favorite.

I am also working on a custom baby quilt. The woman I am making it for had scraps left over from custom bedding and curtains she had made for the baby’s room, so I used some of that mixed in with some other coordinating fabrics.
Here’s how it looks so far.

I am also working on a secret baby quilt so no photos yet. On top of those projects, a quilt for each my mom and sister are currently sitting on the back burner. I have also been attempting to finish up any projects that have just been laying around. I have a really simple queen sized quilt I am finishing the quilting on so hopefully I’ll get it bound and photographed soon.

I’ve also been messing around with designing fabrics through Spoonflower. I currently have several prints for sale. Here is my sampler I ordered to proof my designs so I could start selling them.

I’ve cut them down and even made a few items from the squares. I’ve been adding these and iPad leather accented bags on my Etsy.

Whew! In my free time (HA!) I’ve been trying to get some bags and accessories made for a show in September. More on that later.

New Quilts

Did I mention I’ve been sewing non-stop? So as promised here are the new quilts that are or are soon to be for sale in my shop.

I originally made this one for myself and still really like it so I am not sure if I am going to sell it or not, but I figured it needed a good photograph anyway.

And finally is the banner quilt I have been working on. After finishing it up, which I wasn’t too pleased with, I decided it was all wrong. It’s too narrow and long. I’m still planning on selling it if anyone is interested in it, but I don’t think it’s my best work. I totally redid the quilt and love the new one. I’ll share that one in my next post.

More soon.
