Hannah got all of her blocks back from this summer quilting round robin back in September, and we love them. She’d asked for brown and rainbows, and that is what she got. We haven’t had a chance to sew this quilt together yet, but we will. She’s been less interested in sewing this fall, but she did just ask me the other day if we could make something, so I think we’ll pull these blocks out soon.

It’s here! Trick or Treat Day came and went. I was so in the weeds with this Belle costume, which Hannah asked for back in July, and I ended up sewing the whole thing on Friday night. I stayed up all night, it took 11 straight hours of sewing, I binged all 9 episodes of Stranger Things 2 while I did it. But she is so excited, and I love how this gown turned out.

Still haven’t finished her costume! But I did finish this Halloween quilt. Let’s be real here, I’ve cut out the paper pattern but have not cut any fabric or sewn a stitch yet. I’ve been under the weather the past couple of days and haven’t made any more progress, but I will. I am determined to get this costume done by next Saturday, for a costume birthday party for one of Hannah’s classmates.

These pictures aren’t great, but it’s too drizzly a day to lay this quilt top out on the lawn for some photos, and I just realized my camera’s battery is dead. iPhone all the way.

We finished this round robin at the beginning of September, but we haven’t pieced the blocks Hannah received yet. There were actually four blocks we made over the summer, and I just completely forgot to take photos of the third! I can’t believe I did that, but if you check #kidsquiltroundrobin on Instagram you’ll see everyone’s photos.

And it’s made my quilt sandwiching so much easier. Usually I spread all 3 layers of a quilt out on my bed, pull it tight, and pin it. I’ve tried spray basting, and maybe I’ll try it again someday. But I still prefer pins. And I love this method. It lets me just use my cutting table, I don’t even have to spread the whole quilt flat.

I feel terrible that I don’t have any pictures of this quilt block finished. I definitely took photos of it, and now I can’t find them anywhere. I have a sinking suspicion I accidentally deleted the photos shortly after I took them. But this block was for Sophie’s stars quilt, and we had a lot of fun with this one!

This one is an oldie but a goodie, a tutorial I did for GeekMom back in 2013. The photos don’t seem to work over there anymore, and since Hannah outgrew that original crown a while ago, I figured I’d put up the tutorial here, too. With a few tweaks and new photos. I’m just now making her a brand-new one because we are obsessed with all things princess lately.

We’re a little late here, the last month has been jam-packed. But Hannah and I signed up for the Kids Quilt Round Robin that Sarah Nunes from Berry Barn Designs and Sarah Goer are organizing this summer. Sarah Nunes reached out to me after I posted some Instagram photos of Hannah and her new sewing machine, and it seemed like such a great chance to get a little sewing in this summer and learn some new techniques with my new sewer.

I started this design in January 2015, and I’ve finally finished it! It’s an interpretation of the Andromeda constellation made with three sizes of wonky star blocks. Also, I do not love this quilt. But I just needed to get it finished so I could move on. I’m not good at having UFOs lying around, I like to finish projects. Even if I’m not wild about them, I’m a completionist.
