another late night quilt session

Finding time to quilt when you have a day job pretty much leaves you with two options: late night quilt sessions, and oh so short weekends. 🙂 I’m at it again, quilting in the wee hours of the night.

Paige was more than ready to go to bed, but she’s a trooper and waited up for me as she always does. 🙂

One quilt down, and one more to go! I hope to finish quilting my Rainy Days quilt tomorrow night. I’ve already prepped the backing, so all I need to do is throw it on my frame and quilt away. I’m tempted to just bring it in and have the quilting done for me, but that costs money that I’d rather spend on fabric :-}

I wanted to say thank you for your comments on the Rainy Day Quilt; I absolutely love reading your comments! I try to make patterns that are simple because 1) it breaks apart a quilt that may seem daunting and turns it into a doable project and 2) there’s just not enough time to quilt! It’s great having a quilt top pattern that you can finish over a weekend.

I have another simple pattern in the works that I hope to post soon that uses charm squares, so stay tuned. Anyway, that’s it for now. Just wanted to pop in mid-week to say hi!

Happy (late night) quilting! 😉

Lazy Sunday

Last Sunday was a lazy one. I spent more time looking at fabric online than sewing. I didn’t even take my furr nuggets on a walk; however, they seemed pretty lazy too!

Knowing that I wouldn’t have much time to sew once the work week started, I suddenly got non-lazy and whipped up this little pillow using scraps from my latest pillows.

The middle is a log cabin patchwork design. I didn’t really measure my pieces, I just kept adding on until the pillow top was the right size. It’s kind of nice doing improv patchwork and not measuring for once!

Now that the week is nearing an end, I have several projects lined up for this weekend and am looking forward to getting started. First, I need to finish quilting this. Then, I plan to finish my charm pack project I was working on. I’m just about done and will have the finished project posted soon.

That’s it for now… thanks for stopping by!

Happy Quilting 😉
