Triangle bunting quilt pattern! :) YAY!

So……with spring in my mind (dang snow and subzero temps are just getting to me) I couldn’t help but just daydream about a picnic lunch outside with baby Zeke and Aaron, by the stream in our backyard. With yummy sandwiches, green grass and lush trees all around. I could picture the giggles and the chasing of baby Zeke (because he’ll surely be learning to walk at that point)….and out of this vision, a cute quilt blanket pattern was born! :) Now, this size might be a bit small for a multi-family picnic, but it’s EASILY adjustable! OR it’s perfect for a stroller blanket, a crib quilt, play blanket or a beautiful throw for your family room! :)

As I was designing, I feel in love with the ability it has to be so colorful and happy! :) Don’t you think?! :)

So HURRY up Spring….so we can go outside and play on this new blanket! :)

This pattern is available in my Etsy shop; and for the month of March, take 50% off the price with code: BUNTING! :)

YAY sewing!

Chevron baby quilt! :)

I’m beyond happy to be sharing this with you!

You see…I have these ideas in my head and sometimes I make them and sometimes they get lost into the world of the unknown (we all do, right?!) But this one….I *knew* that I wanted to create something extra special for our little boy, Ezekiel! :) I’ve always been drawn to modern design and color so after a few sketches, this is what came out. A SUPER SIMPLE and super easy to sew baby quilt! Trust me…..this pattern is SO not hard and my favorite part is that you can use any array of color combos or patterns or solids to make it different and fun! :) Really…you’ll love it! :)

It’s available currently in my Etsy shop (YAY!) and if you use the discount “Chevron” you’ll get 50% off through the month of February! :)

Yay for quilt patterns and yay for babies! :)

April 27, 2012 : My story, Textiles

It takes a baby….

…to make sure those things that have been hovering on your to-do list for over 6 months ACTUALLY get accomplished and become crossed off the list! :) I am learning this……slowly, but surly! :)

As embarrassing as it is, I have had the quilt top to this quilt (Amy Butler’s Sexy Hexy pattern) done for maybe over a year now. I fell in love with the pattern, bought the fabric, quickly cut it out and even more quickly sewed the top together (it was quite an easy and quick sew I must say). And then I smile because it looked great! Well….there is sat, draped over the rocking chair in my sewing room for a LONG LONG LONG time. As we’ve been packing, purging and getting ready for baby Steffen to arrive (in a mere 6 weeks…BAH!…time is whizzing by) I made a GIANT to-do list of things I wanted to get accomplished before this little one arrives and steals all of my precious creative time away for a few months. And this project was one of them!

So, now…I can proudly watch some movies and work on my next project with this lovely and warm quilt cuddled in my lap! Doesn’t every home need about 10 of these throw quilts just to make life more colorful?!?!? :) I sure think so! :)
