Top of the List

So I am super excited today.  Why you might ask??  Because today I get to post that the 3 things that were on the top of my priority list from Wednesday are now done!!  Yippee Skippe!!!

First off, I finally quilted my little Jocelyn's crib quilt.  This quilt has been sitting in the corner of the sewing room basted for like a month.  Wednesday afternoon I decided it was time to get this little cutie quilted.  


On the sashings I quilted this cute little swirl.  I am really falling in love with this swirl for sashings.  I am not perfect at it by any means but it is a really relaxing stitch to quilt.  I love doing it and I love the way it looks :)


And here it is in her crib with her favorite bear.  I quilted echo flowers in the center of each of the 4 patches.  They also are not perfect but my daughter asked me to do flowers on the baby's quilt and who am I to refuse the request of a 2 year old :)

And you can't have a baby quilt picture without the baby.  Here is Jocelyn.  She is growing so fast and she still has all of that hair :)

Oh, and finishing this quilt just happened to be my One Thing One Week goal for Amy's link up.  Yippee Skippee for Amy and her motivation.  If you have never heard of this, you should really check it out.  Just click on the icon below to find out more :)


On to project 2.  I finished this customer quilt yesterday. The design is based on Natalia's Let Your Imigantion Bloom quilt tutorial but instead of layer cakes I use charms.  This was a super fun customer quilt because it was a bit of a throw back.  You See . . . . .


About 2 years ago I sold this little quilt.  (I had made a similar one for a friend and had cut extra's so I whipped up a second one :)    A few weeks ago I was contacted by the owner asking If I could make another quilt similar to this one for their new little arrival.  I was super happy to.  Luckily, I still had a lot of the same fabrics  (which she wanted) so it was fun to recreate the same look with a little twist.


 The customer requested an all over meandering quilting so that it matched the first.  I haven't done meandering in quite some time and I forgot how much I enjoy it.



And last but not least . . .Project 3.  Which happens to be Secret Project SC.  Which I can't show you yet, hence the secret part.  But I promise, it won't be to much longer.  More of that on Monday :)

And I will be linking these finishes up to Amada Jean's Finish it up Friday and Amy's Sew and Tell Linky's :)

  10. I dig the swirl! Can't FMQ on my machine at the moment, so I've got a ton of wip's backed up waiting to be finished - congrats on finishing so many this week!

  12. Ooh I just love each of these you've posted pics of. I couldn't pick my favorite among them if you forced me to do so. I would love it if you could give more info about how you made that top one. I realize it's probably super easy for most reading but, for me I'm chicken to look at something and try making it yet. Maybe another year and I'll be more brave. I have to make a quilt for my Granddaughter who arrives sometime next month and I really need to pick something soon to make. I have these grand dreams of something just super gorgeous and way too ambitious for me I'm sure. I need to scale it back a little. This one looks perfect and maybe something I could do much more easily than those I've been thinking of trying to make.

  18. Your daughter is precious! Did you use a pattern for her quilt? I'm a newbie quilter and not sure I'm ready to try figuring it out on my own yet but I love that quilt and a friend of mine is having a little girl in May that I would love to make this for. Thanks!
