Yay! In the September/October of Generation Q I have a new quilt I designed called “This Goose Is a Bit Rich.” I love this one. It took me a while to make, and my wonderful friend Rachael Dorr did the quilting. She’s incredible.
I love this pattern, but it was much trickier to make this hat from Oliver + S Little Things to Sew than I remember from last year. Curved piecing, no problem. It was stitching in the cap on the reversible side to the already constructed brim. Getting those seams to line up properly without extra fabric was tough.
I started a quilt with this collection a couple of weeks ago under extremely sad circumstances. I’ve stalled on its progress because of those same sad circumstances, but I’ll be getting back to it next week. And I will finish it. The top is done, but then I needed to put it away for a bit. I’ll piece the back and get it quilted and bound. Then I will share more.
Actually, it was delivered to Maggie and her husband Dave about 2 months ago. This is just how far behind on life I’ve been lately. I love this quilt. I unabashedly adore it, and I’m glad it found a good home. I name my quilts in my head when I’m working on them, and “Betty” was a doozy.
A lovely friend of mine had twins last week, a boy and a girl. I’d meant to give these to her at a quilt guild meeting last month but couldn’t make it. I made them using my own fabric crown tutorial, and I adjusted them to fit newborn heads. These will adjust from 13″ to 16″ circumference, and they’re reversible. Although twins are usually pretty tiny, so it may still be a while before their little heads fit them.

I finished this little quilt for Hannah Thanksgiving week, but for some reason I just never got around to posting photos. I don’t think it was any real reason other than the holidays kept me busy and then there was too much snow to take it outside for photos.
It’s coming along so much! I finished the top before we left for Las Vegas, and I made the backing when we got home. It’s all sandwiched, and I started on the quilting this weekend. That will be a time task, I’m doing different motifs on every square. And actually, every part of each square.

I finished her dress! I used McCall’s M6541 pattern, but I just made the basic little pinafore dress with it. No applique or Ric Rac. This is the same pattern my mom used for a blue version of this dress last summer, and Hannah is taller than the biggest dress size for the pattern now.
