The Ultimate Unfinished Objects Post

I think it's pretty obvious after going through my fabric and project stash that I like to make quilt tops...and stop there. I didn't truly realize this when pulling out all my unfinished objects (UFOs) as I was contemplating starting yet ANOTHER quilt top.

Somebody stop me...

Half finished quilting bee blocks and tops - from 2 years ago! (Bee Stitched, Fresh Comfort 2, Quilting newBEES)

Newly completed half-square triangle Echo quilt top - OBSESSED with this line and can't wait for her soon-to-be-released Bella.

Hand sewn hexies - appliqued onto Kona Snow

Started this skirt

Stars quilt top

Complete quilt top, bed-size!

Clearly basted back when it was chilly - flannel monkey children's quilt

People...there are even a few more. I have a quilt top from a colleague that her grandmother made and I'm quilting it for her. I also started Anna Maria Horner's prism quilt which will take FOREVER. Not to mention I have a whole stack of blocks featuring cute little dogs from Heather Ross.

And I actually considered starting a new quilt top today. WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME.

OK, my goal is to finish all these by the end of summer. Yes, seriously.


Odin's quilt

A very special little boy turned 1 this past week. The adorable son of 2 of my colleagues celebrated his birthday in style - a big party (mostly for grown-ups) with lots of food, fun, and of course presents! I knew that I wanted to make a quilt for Odin months ago. This is one of my favorite completed quilts - I'm so excited that I can share it now. It features some of my most loved fabric - Heather Ross fishies, a Converse sneaker print (his mom owns many pairs) and bright fun prints from some of my favorite lines. Odin's parents both work with me - his mom and I work in the same department - and needless to say we've formed a relationship beyond just work. It may seem corny but making new friends is the greatest.

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend, especially all you mommas out there!


Spring cleaning

I've been bitten by the Spring Cleaning bug. I'm going to go through my fabric in hopes of destashing. I did this before and was semi successful. Also, if you own a fabric shop or workspace and are looking for anything (ie. things that aren't as popular so I probably won't try selling them but still need a good home and might be useful for say, teaching classes?), please let me know. I'd be happy to fill a box and have you just pay for shipping.
