About Me

My photo
I'm just a new wife who has an obsession with my sewing machine! In Oct. 2010, my mother and I created my first sewing project - Euro pillow shams. I was hooked! I read everything I could get my hands on that had to do with sewing! Books, magazines, online tutorials. I experimented and found that I get so much enjoyment from making quilts, and that it's where I found my niche. I'm still a beginner, but I've learned so much in just 5 short months, that I want to share it with someone!

Wedding Shower Fun

Whew! It's been a fun and busy weekend so far! I hope you're all enjoying your weekends :). 

Today was my dear friend Lauren's wedding shower. 


I don't know about anyone else, but I had an awesome time :). She is a dear friend and she deserves nothing but happiness and love. 

In January, I had really begun my quilt obession, and decided to make a rag quilt for Lauren as her gift. 


I love how it turned out! I used fabrics from Fig Tree Quilt's Whimsy for Moda (can you tell I have an obsession?). It has been really difficult to keep this one under wraps and not blog, message, etc. whatsoever. 


Each block is approx 8" before sewing. The finished measurements are approx 48"x67". 

In other sewing news, I am still finishing up the top for the a-b-c quilt. It's taking a little more time than I anticipated, which is something to keep in mind if you plan on buying one of these awesome quilt kits. Either way, I am really liking how it's turning out. The 30's inspiration is really fun and a good change of pace. 

Happy Quilting!
