Pineapple Quilt

By Andrea | January 26, 2023 |

Thanks to the massive basement cleanup, I’m back to sewing when I have the time.  My 1st completed project is a pineapple quilt that I purchased fabrics for several years ago.  It’s based on a mini quilt by Lori over at Crossquilt, which I fell in love with when she shared her project in 2015.…

3 Blocks Away

By Andrea | September 14, 2022 |

So proud of myself.  I’ve actually been making progress on my spooky crazy quilt!  I’m down to needing to complete the sewing of just 3 blocks.  Of course, I’ll still have some embroidery work to do between the blocks, plus basting, quilting, and binding, but I MIGHT actually be able to get this quilt done…

After about a year long hiatus, I finally got back in my sewing space a couple weeks ago.  Granted, that was mostly to convert the space to do crafting with Milli, but that meant cleaning up in the sewing area.  And somehow, the easiest way to clean up my sewing projects is to finish them,…

Finished Baby Communique Quilt

By Andrea | January 27, 2020 |

I’ve had this little quilt done for a bit, but the weather has been too dreadful for photos. But, thanks to a lovely Sunday afternoon, and the hubs taking the tiny human with him on errands, I was finally able to get a few photos of this fun finish. This quilt uses my Baby Communique…

WIP Wednesday

By Andrea | January 22, 2020 |

I’ve made some time to do a little sewing in these first few weeks of the year, and I’m happy to say that I’ve managed to accomplish a few things. The first is a new quilt top for the Scrap Quilt Challenge (#SQChallenge20 & #SQ9Patch on Instagram). The concept of the challenge is that each…

WIP Wednesday – Holiday Ornaments

By Andrea | November 6, 2019 |

In between playing tiny house and kitchen with Milli, I’ve been using up a some of my scrap Christmas fabric to make ornaments. I’ve done two different kinds so far – Christmas trees and fortune cookies. The Christmas trees are made from 4″ strips of fabric cut into triangles (one for each side), with twill…

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…

WIP Wednesday

By Andrea | October 9, 2019 |

I’m super proud of myself because I made a lot of progress on Mil’s baby communique quilt this week. One whole side of the quilt has been pieced together for about a week and I had all of the solid blocks for the other side sewn together. All I had to do was to put…

It’s slow with the tiny human as an assistant, but I managed to piece together the top left section on my communique baby quilt. It measures 22×22-inches, which isn’t much, but it makes Milli very happy. I’m hoping that I can distract her with this finished section while I work on the next one. What…

blue fabric for baby communique quilt

WIP Wednesday

By Andrea | September 18, 2019 |

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…
