I still need to write up a tutorial for this at some point, I now have 2 tutorials (maybe 3?) that I need to write up soon. But this quilt is finished, washed, photographed, and moved into its new home on our couch. I love it! This is such a different color scheme for me to work in, and I really, really like it.

I bought a big tie dye kit on sale when I was stocking up on summer craft supplies, and then I pinned some great projects on Pinterest. And one of them was this I Love to Create Tropical Twist Teepee. I knew I could sew the tent and get H to help me dye it, and then she’d have something really cool for her backyard play. And we had so much fun! I love how this turned out.

dino kit 2

I’m not even sure if I can count this as our first sewing project, but it’s our first attempt. I bought this adorable dino kit on our UK trip and thought it would be a really good place to start with Hannah and sewing.

hello goodbye 1

This was a really quick design and assembly. I think I’m going to write up a tutorial for this one when I get some time to concentrate on it, but I just love, love, love, love this quilt. On a Friday morning I was standing in the fabric store picking out emergency Plan B fabric for this super last minute plan, and on Monday morning I was delivering it to Hannah’s teacher, just in time for the end of the school year. It came together fast.

So this is the custom project I was working on for a friend. Audrey is a sorority sister I met…wow, about 12 or 13 years ago? And we’ve been part of several alumnae chapters together. She did all of these 5ks a few years ago, but the race bibs have just been hanging around. So, she asked me to put them together with some pink fabric (pink is one of our sorority colors).

liberty fabric

I’ve been stocking up on Liberty of London fabrics from a secret, cheap source in Manhattan. I’m not ready to share the source yet, because the members of my quilt guild who shared it will take back my crafter card if I spill the beans. The point is that now I have to figure out what to make.

splat mat 1

This is a project I’ve wanted to do for ages now. The kitchen island was the only real place in the house where we could really do some messy play, and obviously the kitchen is not always ideal. Also, my kitchen island is frequently covered in life–mail, crockpots, recycling. So, I’d wanted to make a nice big blanket, one side laminate, so we could move messy play around the house. Because I’m me, I apparently cannot just go buy a tarp.

race quilt 1

I’ve been working on a commission for a wall hanging made from Tyvek race bibs. I’ve never worked with Tyvek before, so this was a challenge that took a bit of research first.

I have no idea what to call this one yet. I usually have a name in mind when I start, but for now all I’ve got is I’m Finally Using All These Fabrics From My Stash.

I never posted this one, but I participated in the latest #makeaquiltmakeafriend swap through Instragram during the fall. In November I mailed off this mini Tula Pink sampler made with Cotton + Steel prints to my swap partner @Tripleee80.
