WIP Wednesday!!

Pin ItFor the first time in months I have a quilting project to share for WIP Wednesday!!  I have been commissioned to make 2 twin size quilts for two little girls-who are also twins!!  So, I'm using the pattern Sweets from Allison Harris's book Growing Up Modern.  So far, I have 29 blocks of the 48 finished.  I am quite happy with the colors.  My favorite blocks are the toadstools and the hedgehog/deer.  So cute. 

Linking today to Lee at Freshly Pieced and The Needle and Thread Network.

The Library Project

 Adrienne from Chezzetcook Quilts has started The Library Project (click on the button to learn more about it if you would like to participate).  I have some projects chosen that I would love to finish before the end of 2014!  First up, a twin size version of the quilt named Sweets below from Allison Harris's book Growing up Modern.

Next will be another twin size quilt from the book Simply Retro.  This pattern is a square quilt but I'll have to adjust it slightly to make it a twin size.

This pattern is one that I won from Quiltstory.  It is just so cute, and I have a thing with squares in quilts-my mind is symmetrical I guess.

I bought this Modern Log Cabin book ages ago.  I did make one quilt from it  a few years ago, but I'm really drawn to the one on the front.  Looks like something that should be kept on the couch for winter tv watching!

And, I've made more chevron scarves than you can count, but have yet to make a chevron quilt!!  It's the whole reason I bought this Quilting Quickly magazine.

Pin ItOk, so that's 5 projects
1. Sweets
2. Framed
3. Sawyer's Tracks
4. Log cabin crosses
5. Chevron
Let's see how many can be completed this year-on top of my regular orders and craft fairs!!

Lots of sewing......

 I made another quilt that will be used as a photo prop for newborns.  This one aqua and white with flannel on the back.  I've also been sewing a ton of scarves and added one more knit cowl to my collection.  (well, it's not much of a collection as they sell as soon as I post them!)  Anyhow, I'm off to my first quilt guild meeting ever in my life!  Looking forward to meeting some like minded ladies.
Well, time to go-hope to check in again soon.

Newborn photography props

 I started off the New Year at my sewing machine!  I haven't sewed anything over the holidays and I have been anxious to get this little project started and finished!  I had an order from a photographer for a mini quilt for her newborn sessions and so we decided on yellow and white for the first one.
 I'm using my daughter's doll bed for my photo prop, but hers' will be much cuter little babies! 
Pin ItI just did a cross hatch pattern for my quilting and backed it with a soft grey flannel with white polka dots so she can use the reverse too if she wants. 

Happy New Year All!!
