Sunday Thoughts

Well hello there blog world. It's been awhile. Things are full steam ahead with my job, Sophie back in school, school activities and play time with the brilliant boyfriend and I just have been putting the bloggy blog on the back burner of life.

So, a quick little catch up...

I made a quilt with Jenny Eliza fabric designed by Jennifer Paganelli for JoAnn's.
Finished quilt using Quilt As You Go tutorial from Maureen Cracknell
This is mostly what it is being used for

What I made with some of the scraps - kitchen towel
The kitchen towel was made using this tutorial from Schnitzel & Boo
Quilt for my friend Mary
I used the Designer Star pattern by Lee from May Chappell

Cotton + Steel, Kaffe, and Moda fabrics
I love the back!
This quilted table runner turned out so cute! I think I will put it in my etsy store that is completely empty right now. I need to take better pics for sure...

...and the back...
My biggest quilty love is paper piecing!! I will try to focus and make a tutorial for paper piecing. I know that there are a lot out there so I wasn't going to. I have had a lot of people asking me how though.

Last bit - There was a partial eclipse last weekend and we wanted to see it from the beach. This was my picture with my phone camera - obviously my phone camera is not the greatest.
Phone camera - no partial eclipse noticed
HOWEVER! Ernie, with his ever present camera, caught this doozy!! So amazing. I will leave you with that :-)


  1. You are very talented. These are very beautiful quilts. Please tell Ernie that he needs to spend a little time on his Christmas blog. We in the Christmas world need him this time of year . His yuleblog follower's miss him and need him very much.

    1. Thank you! I encourage him nearly everyday. It is part of who he is! I believe he is fulfilling your wishes this month!

  2. Yes. Make a pattern for your feathers. I love them. They could double as fall leaves. :)

    1. Hi Sarah! Thank you so much but I can't take credit for that pattern. They are by Sometimes Crafter and you can find them here: She has some awesome patterns! I love her little ukelele too :-)
