Lydia’s Baby Quilt

Anna just made a quilt for her friend Lydia’s baby, Daniela.  It’s a scrappy rail fence pattern with a clean grey border. I personally love a good scrappy quilt, and baby quilts are a great way to use up some of those novelty prints in your stash. Anna also hand quilts all of her projects.  Read More …

Another Baby Quilt

It seems like the only quilting I get around to doing lately is making baby quilts for people. I don’t mind that at all, but I have been seriously slacking in the amount of time I put into my sewing projects lately.  That’s why I’m glad that my sister requested a make a baby quilt Read More …

WIP Wednesday

It’s been ages since I’ve written up a WIP Wednesday post. And that’s mainly because I haven’t had any progress to share, but with some recent work to my sewing space (more on that later), I’ve managed to get some work done over the last few weeks. I made up a baby quilt for a Read More …

WIP Wednesday

The new season of Project Quilting has started, which is great.

Anna’s Hardest Quilt – The Star of Bethlehem

So I took some pictures of my hardest quilt. I literally cried over this one before I was done. Little did I know that “Star of Bethlehem” (aka Lone Star, Witness, and several other names) is considered one of the toughest patterns. Why? Because if your template is the least bit “off”, it won’t work.  Read More …

WIP Roundup

It’s been a while since I did a full WIP post, where I actually talked about all of the projects I have going, instead of just the ones I’m actively working on. And with my holiday break coming up, I feel like this is a great time to remind myself you what all I really Read More …

Friday Favorites – Winter Sewing Patterns

It’s the time of year to start thinking about those little holiday sewing projects you’d like to get done.

WIP Wednesday

It’s been a busy sewing week here at MiMP.  I started and completed my final Project Quilting Focus Through the Prism challenge quilt.  This month was snowball blocks, and the only color I had left to work with was yellow, so that made for an interesting project. I also started making blocks for my creepy Read More …
