WIP Wednesday

I’m super excited to have made progress on the baby communique quilt again. I was able to piece a backing from all of the leftover bits of the fabric I had purchased to make the front. I crumb pieced all of the leftover bits of fabric from the front into sections and added the uncut…

blue fabric for baby communique quilt

I’m taking a break from last week’s work in progress until I can pick out backing fabric and thread for quilting it. So I finally cut into the stack of blue fabrics I’ve been hoarding to make a sample of the Baby Communique Quilt. I started out by cutting out all of the strips and…

WIP Wednesday – Just Ducky

WIP Wednesday – A New Machine

I’ve been a big slacker about getting any sewing done lately, what with the new baby ducks, and my utter laziness. But I do still have something to share with you this week- a brand new (to me) sewing machine. This jewel was my birthday gift from my husband.  It’s about a month after my…
