We started our week out with a fun family trip to Great Wolf Lodge. It’s a hotel with a indoor waterpark. It has a couple restaurants and an video game arcade. We all had such a fun little mini vacation.

This week I focused on finishing up my Flower Party Quilt!!

I decided to quilt this one in lines from the top to the bottom of the quilt. First I went through and marked my lines (using the seams as my guide), every 2 inches. Then I went through with my walking foot and stitched 1/2 inch from each guide line/seam.

I picked a floral print from the Road Trip fabric line designed by Alison Glass, for the binding. I love how the floral binding looks on this quilt!

This new quilt pattern will be in my shop for sale January 28th! Make sure to go enter the giveaway for your chance to win a FREE copy of this pdf pattern!!

I also started working on my nephews quilt! I got all the pieces cut out and ready to sew.

Goals for This Week!

I plan on finishing my nephews quilt this week! Baby quilts are so fun because they go together so quickly. I am using a new design! The pattern probably won’t be released until at least late March. I will have to wait to share the results of this quilt after the baby shower on Feb. 1st! I’m so excited to have a new nephew soon!

I hope you are making lots of progress on your list!!

This week I focused on working on my Flower Party Quilt! This is a 16 inch block quilt. The pattern will be released on January 28th. So I need to have the whole quilt completed and photographed by January 20th, so I can order the paper patterns.

I finished all the blocks and I added the sashing!

I was hoping to get more done this week, there just isn’t enough time in the day!

GOALS FOR THIS WEEK

This week my goal is to add the border, baste, quilt and bind my Flower Party Quilt!

I also need to start working on my nephews baby quilt! The baby shower is only 3 weeks away! I better get busy!!

Happy Quilting,
Andrea

Last week I was so happy to finish my baby size Left The Nest Quilt for the end of 2019! I decided to bind it in a bright pink (Valentine by Kona Cotton).

I worked more on my NEW Quilt Pattern, the Flower Party Quilt. I completed 1 block and am now sewing all the components for all the blocks at once. I am really excited to finish this top! The quilt pattern will be available in my shop January 28, 2020!

I released 5 NEW Quilt Patterns: Frame It Quilt, Rainier Echoes Quilt, Left The Nest Quilt, Happy Block Swap Quilt and the Lovey Star Garden Quilt.

Have you made any progress this week? I know it can be a busy time for people. Having my kids home for winter break makes it so I have less time to sew. But I’m enjoying spending extra time with them.

This week the kids finished making their Aprons! We had cut them out during their Summer break, other projects got in the way. So we finally finished them up this week. The kids had a lot of fun making these. They picked out their own fabrics and did all the sewing. I helped with ironing and pinning.

 

We also had some fun making some bread from scratch. Our first loaf didn’t turn out too good. So we tried again an our results were much better! I love baking in the winter time and it fills your house with yummy smells!

This week I found some time to baste and quilt my baby size Left The Nest Quilt! I love using spray baste. It makes the basting step go way faster! I used Sulky KK 200 Temporary Spray. I love that there isn’t any overspray left on my tile floor.

I decided to go with a large zig zag pattern for the quilting. I used my seams as a guild. I quilted about 1/2 inch from all the top flying geese. Then I started quilting in between each of those lines to make the lines all about 1 3/4 inches apart.

The last project I worked on this week was my new quilt pattern the Flower Party Quilt! I made some progress and am close to having some blocks done! Yay!!

Finish Those UFQs 2020!
Since we will be postponing the next quilt along in my quilt along until probably March of 2020. I’ve decided to extend the Finish those UFQs into January of 2020! Yay! More time to get our boxes checked off our list!

This week I was so happy to finish up my Happy Block Swap Quilt! It’s been pouring outside, so I haven’t been able to get a full shot of the quilt. Once the rain lets up I’ll take one.

You can find the FREE PDF block patterns here!

I love how the floral binding looks on this quilt! It makes me want to use floral binding more often!

I started working on my NEW Quilt Pattern, the Flower Party Quilt. I’m using these gorgeous Road Trip fabrics designed by Alison Glass for Andover Fabrics.

My goals for this week is to complete some of the Flower Party blocks. Also, I would like to baste and quilt my baby size Left The Nest Quilt! My kids start winter break tomorrow, so I’m going to need to manage my time wisely to get some sewing time in!

This past week, I decided to go with scrappy binding for my Cloudy Day Quilt Sampler! And I’m so happy I did! I’m loving how it is looking so far. I made my binding on Monday, sewed it to the front of the quilt Tuesday and then started hand sewing the binding to the back of the quilt on Thursday. I’m hoping to have this finished soon!

Find the FREE Cloudy Day Quilt Sampler Pattern HERE!

I also sewed the binding onto my stack of pot holders, next I need I need to finish sewing the loops. Then I can hand stitch the binding to the backs.
