Secret Squirrel Mini Quilt

By Andrea | October 30, 2015 |

This month’s Project Quilting Focus Through the Prism challenge theme was the 9-patch block.  For my version of the challenge, I created a simple 9-patch design using orange fabrics. I decided to add a fun ninja squirrel for my embroidery design – this is not an actual requirement for the challenge quilts, but it’s a…

WIP Wednesday

By Andrea | October 28, 2015 |

Lot’s of quilty things have been happening since last week.  As you know, from last week, I made a Monster’s Inc. baby blanket for my nephew Huxley, along with a matching taggie blanket.  And now that Huxley is here, you get to see his cuteness with his new quilt. And no, I didn’t buy him…

A Monster Taggie Blanket

By Andrea | October 23, 2015 |

Since I didn’t have enough leftover fabric from the crib sheet to do the backing of Huxley’s monster quilt, I wanted to make something else with some of the fabric. I settled on a taggie blanket as a great way to use up some of the fabric. One side is pure Monster’s Inc., using the…

I feel like I’ve made a lot of progress in the last week. I finally got around to finishing up the baby quilt for my new nephew, Huxley. I also made him another little gift, but it’s a surprise, so I won’t be sharing that one with you until after I get to give it…

Huxley’s Monster Quilt

By Andrea | October 19, 2015 |

A couple weeks ago, I shared with you that I was working on a quilt for my soon-to-be nephew, Huxley.  But somehow, between getting a cold, and generally being a slacker I didn’t get around to finishing the quilt until late last week. Which is pretty sad, when you realize that all I actually had…

Waiting for 10AM

By Andrea | October 12, 2015 |

If you love quilting, or just hoarding fabric as much as I do, I’m sure you know about the Fat Quarter Shop.  Because of their amazing selection, it’s one of my favorite places to order fabric online. The best part is their Flash Sale page, which gets updated at 10AM every day.  That means I…

WIP Wednesday

By Andrea | September 30, 2015 |

I finally got around to starting on the baby quilt for my nephew, who will be born in mid October. There’s nothing like waiting for the last minute.  The theme for his room is going to be Monster’s Inc., so as a starting place for this quilt, I took a trip to Baby’s R’ Us…

Baby Beluga Mini Quilt

By Andrea | September 25, 2015 |

I’ve had a bit of a busy month, with family reunions and out of town weddings, so even though I got my Project Quilting Focus Through the Prism challenge quilt pieced early in the month, I didn’t get around to finishing it until this week. This month’s challenge was flying geese.  I’d never made one…

WIP Wednesday

By Andrea | September 16, 2015 |

I feel like a slacker because I’ve hardly gotten anything done on my mini quilt since last week.  The only thing I did get done was the hand embroidery. But at least my little baby whale is cute! What are you working on this week? Sharing over at: WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced, Let’s Bee…

WIP Wednesday

By Andrea | September 9, 2015 |

It’s  WIP Wednesday again, and surprisingly enough I’ve actually got another work in progress to share.  I’m super proud of myself getting started on this month’s Project Quilting Focus Through the Prism Challenge so early.  Of course, I need to get it done and out of the way, so that I can get a baby…
