SEWING AGAIN!

I finally found some motivation to sew…I am so happy that I am going to have a little girl to sew for and I have so many things I want to make for her.

This week has been productive (at least for me). Last Friday, Amy (Allie Kat Mom) and I took a little trip shopping. We hit up two of our Local quilt stores. The plan was to find fabrics for me to send out for my month in the VIBees. Which we did.

Here is my lovely stack of fabrics from that trip…

I am very pleased with the fabrics we found…Now I just need to get them cut and sent out.

On that trip we also came across this pattern…

I fell in love with it and bought the kit. I plan on framing it and hanging it on Hartley’s nursery wall. Here is mine…

I still need to do the stitching and frame it, but I am so in love with the way it turned out. I think it is going to be beautiful in her room Smile

I also bought 2 Sophia charm packs and some backing and binding fabrics to make Hartley’s first quilt. I started out wanting to make the Moda Bake Shop quilt “Mod Circles” but it soon turned into something so much more!

Here is the top (I found the background fabric in my stash. I couldn’t find a “solid” that I thought worked).

And here it is all completed…

A look at the back…

I think it is so pretty and quite fitting for a sweet baby girl! I can not wait to wrap her up in it!!!

Now, I am off to start (or finish) more quilting!

The quilt is WONDERFUL!! LOVE the quilting and it looks so pretty and cuddly all washed and dried and crinkly. Such a pretty 'first' quilt.
The wall hanging is cute. Did it come with all the fabrics?
