Waiting for spring

Genny made this darling quilt using our Goodnight Monkey Tutorial, and a Waiting for Spring Layer Cake. It's a great use of a layer cake. 
I machine quilted an all over pattern and I think it turned out so so cute!

Can't wait to see you tomorrow! I've got some exciting news to share! ;)

Kinda a teeny tiny bit excited for this Saturday

Because I get to spend the whole day in heaven, I mean quilt shops.
Vanessa, Kimberly and I will be hanging out at the Material Girls, Pine Needles and American Quilting, so come by and visit! (contact the shops for exact times) It's going to be a fun day full of give aways and discounted signed copies!!! :)
I will be bringing along some of my Moda Bake Shop projects. For sure "It's a Picnic Kind of Day" are there any others you'd like to see?

Birthday Party Quilts!

Barbara made this darling quilt for family birthday parties!
I love the idea. I like to use quilts as table cloths and to have one just for birthday parties just seems so fitting!
She made it a bit longer than the original pattern but for a big table it's perfect.
Barbara wanted an all over quilting pattern so I machine quilted circles. I love how happy they turned out. :)
There are kits for the smaller version of this quilt available here.
Pretty Please with a Cherry on Top quilt pattern is by Amanda of The Quilted Fish.
Barbara also made this super cute table runner. 
Aren't they both so cute for a birthday party! :)

I hope you're having a fabulous Memorial Day. We've enjoyed our day so far, sleeping in and heading out in a while to visit cemeteries then our families.

Bedroom Makeover

My bedroom has been the butt of all jokes for quite some time.... Well over a year to be exact. A year ago my husband and I bought this darling bedroom set as our 5th anniversary gift to each other. I love the bedroom set but since the bed is a king I haven't gotten around to making anything for myself, well at least anything that big.... Or so I thought.
After joking with Amy yesterday about my bed and the "ugly" brown thing on it I remembered that my Daisy Delight quilt is probably big enough.
So, when Kathleen got to the studio yesterday afternoon we went to work, I had some left over Central Park fabric and a few pillow forms so we whipped out those simple pillowcases and those fun "Cubed" pillows.
Here is my bedroom now.
I'm sure I can still figure out something for the walls but for now.... it's much much better!
AND... my husband even noticed and said he likes it a lot better! :)
Happy dance!
Here's a close up of the cute little "Cubed" pillows. 
I love them.
AND.... I will have a free tutorial for them tomorrow!

How to properly attach a border or sashing on a quilt {a free tutorial}

The key to having a square quilt is a square border. You must properly attach all borders and sashings to ensure a square quilt.

I know I can.... I know I can...

When I'm not quilting I spend my time being a mom, well I guess I do that while I'm quilting too. 
This is my daughter, I love her to pieces but sometimes she frustrates me to pieces. :) Anyways she is finally big enough to ride her tricycle. She tells us all the time it's her bike "without" training wheels. In our neighborhood we have a lot of little hills and she loves to ride her tricycle on them. The other day she was riding around and having a hard time getting up one of the bigger hills. As she was pushing I overheard her quietly saying something. I listened hard and realized she was saying "I know I can..... I know I can" she repeated this a few times and then I asked her where she learned that. She told me, I'm a little engine. 
So, the books we read her she actually does listen to.

Okay, back to quilting. :)
Have a happy day!
