Quilting

Since getting my longarm, Lucey, I haven’t had much chance to talk about or show off some projects I’ve been working on, but I knew I needed to share this latest quilt with you. Melanie over at Benefit & Bless made this amazing quilt top using the Quick Curve Ruler by Sew Kind of Wonderful.

The quilt top turned out absolutely stunning with Vanessa Christenson’s simply color ombre. Melanie wanted the quilting to have some element of loopy, ribbon candy, and circles with my own design freedom. Fun right?!

So here’s what I freehand quilted on it:

I love how the whole quilt turned out so much that I had parting issues! The quilt is a gift so I hope the recipient loves it as well!
If you’re interested having me quilt one of your quilts, please feel free to email me for rates!

Handmade Baby Shower.

Last weekend I spent the afternoon at one of my quilt friends, Ebony’s baby shower. She’s having another little girl & of course with baby girls on the mind and someone as crafty as Ebony, I knew I would be making her something!

Ensley’s nursery is chic, nautical theme & absolutely adorable! Being a sewer/quilter, Ebony has made most of the things in Ensley’s nursery to include quilts, wall decor, changing pad covers, etc. It was a bit hard to come up with something unique that I figured she wouldn’t be making!

First item on the list was the Noodle Head Divided Basket. I also have one of these in mind for Miss Rowan.

The pattern was very easy to follow & put together, I highly recommend it. It’s also fairly good sized & fits lots of goodies!

The Lizzy House pearl bracelets, Riley Blake chevrons, Kaffe Fassett paperweights, and Ann Kelle mermaids played so well together! So well in fact that I had to also make some cute matching wash cloths.

Next I whipped up a nursing cover from this great, simple tutorial. It’s an awesome last minute project too, since it takes under an hour to complete & only 3/4 yard of fabric. I’ll also be making one of these for myself in the near future.

Of course I couldn’t show up to a baby shower without some diapers and a few extra goodies, so I stuffed this little basket to the brim!

I absolutely love how everything turned out & I think Ebony loved it too! Hopefully Miss. Ensley will approve as well!
