Tutorial: April Showers Baby Quilt

Happy March! So I hate to say it but it has been AWHILE since I last posted. I am still here, but I've had other responsibilities as of late, none sewing related in the slightest. However, I am very happy to be sharing some of my latest sewing today on the blog. 

If you click through, you'll notice I've been doing some cleaning and sprucing up on the blog. On the right sidebar are links to my tutorials, Pinterest, and Instagram.  I also added a link to all the quilts I've made to date. (Or at least the ones I've photographed.) I receive many emails, mainly from Pinterest pins, asking me about patterns, fabrics, etc for my quilts. So I hope this will help answer those questions!

Today I am here to share with you a tutorial I whipped up for the Moda Bake Shop. (I LOVE doing projects for them.) I made two little baby quilts using the wonderful new line April Showers by Bonnie and Camille.  The Baby Showers quilts are the same design, but each use a different placement of the blocks. To make each quilt all you need are 10 fat quarters, background yardage, backing, and binding.  They really are easy and quite a fun project! I hope you enjoy.

Happy Friday!

A Full Shop + More to Come!

Well, Believe has come and gone and it was a sparkling success! Thanks to you who came out and said hi and thanks to all those I met! I couldn't believe the crowd and I was one busy girl.

I sold out of most of my stock the first night, which was a total surprise! My banners were cleaned out before I could blink. However, I will have some up in the shop in the next week or two. (Definitely before Thanksgiving. Lots of sad faces when I said they were sold out. ) Here is one lone banner leftover from the boutique, you can find it here.

My advents were also gone in a flash. I was hoping to bring home a couple for the shop and had one lone Christmas Advent left, I made 15, and I listed it this morning and it was gone in 5 minutes.

There are two Thanksgiving Advents left and they are listed here.

So what's left?

Well like with all Craft Boutiques, some things sell and some don't.  I have some owl totes left.  Remember these cute guys?! It's been while since they've been in the shop and I am happy they're back. They really are fun to make.

Then there's the quilts. I actually sold one quilt at the boutique, my favorite one. It was a chevron quilt made from my last orphaned Bliss charm pack. It was another fun project, my first time working with Minky.  Will definitely be making more baby quilts with Minky. I was smart and at least snapped one photo.

There are four quilts left and they are listed in the shop. I love the aqua herringbone.

Then there's the stockings. These were a big hit in the shop two Christmases ago and I am happy to introduce a gray color to the mix. These are available now and I can personalize with whatever letters you need.

So there you go! That's what's left from the last four months of sewing/crafting and staying up way too late. It was a great weekend but now it's back to reality. What's first on my list? Really cleaning my house and potty training a two-year old. Wish me luck!

Thanks for reading!

countdown cards + calendars + to dos

Last week my to do list was about a mile long. I was beyond thrilled when it looked like this on Saturday night:
