I’m working on a new quilt! This is such amazing news as it is the first quilt I’ve been able to share since the Double Rainbow quilt (which I finished back in April). I have one quilt out to a magazine, hopefully that will be published early next year. And I’ve been working on another one for a magazine, too. I can’t share those, so this is only the second quilt of 2014 that I can post photos of.

I never posted about this! Man, I am so behind. This has been sitting in my drafts since May. It was the first thing I put in my shop, and then somehow I never got this actual post up.

June JSMQG 1

It must be said that I haven’t been able to prioritize quilt guild meetings since becoming a mom. It actually wasn’t so bad when Hannah was an infant; she kind of had to come with me everywhere so she could eat, but she was an easy baby.

It’s really been the past year or year-and-a-half that made it tough. When H was old enough to start having opinions or refusing to sit still. Plus, little people are exhausting. It takes a lot of effort to strategize life outside out of motherhood, and something had to give or I would never see my friends and family. Or get any work done.

Here’s the deal with quilting lately: I’ve been doing a lot of it, but I haven’t been able to share. I realized just now that I never posted the finished Rainbow Strip Quilt, which I finished back in April (I think). So now that’s going on the To Do list.

But I’ve also been working on 3 other quilts I haven’t shared; two are top secret projects to be revealed later this year/early next year (in print!!!!), and the third is a wedding quilt for one of my very best friends, Miss Maggie.

May 2014 Outfits

I didn’t even get half the month of May in photos, but to be fair we were out of the country for part of that time. And I didn’t take any outfit photos while we were away. I get a pass on all the yoga pants and stretchy jeans I wore on vacation because CHEESE.

I’ve finished the quilting on this one! I love it, and I tried something new. I was poking around some quilting tutorials and came across some of Angela Walters’ excellent videos on All People Quilt. She’s just so relaxed and encouraging, and she promoted the idea of keeping things loose and just going for it. I liked that, so I gave it a try. This was kind of inspired by her paisley design, but I’m obviously not as deft with it as she is.

I love them! I tweaked my old design and ordered a batch from Spoonflower. Also, can we talk about the improvements to my photo skills in the last three years? I swear, sometimes I toy with the idea of taking down all my ancient posts, but they remind me of my evolution. In so many ways.

I never, ever posted this quilt I made for Hannah for Christmas. It’s time I remedied that!

sherbetpips1Okay, actually this ended up being a New Year’s quilt since I didn’t actually finish it until December 30th. Remember grass? I’d forgotten about it under all the snow we got in January and February.

I will post better photos of this quilt when I’ve got it finished, but for now the weather is too grim to take it outside. I actually ran a string across my studio to try and get more than my typical lay-it-out-on-the-floor photo.

I have one of those, too.
