{TUTORIAL}: Quilt-as-you-go Baby Quilt

A few years ago, I had the *brilliant* idea that I was not only going to have a successful career as a newborn photographer, but I was also going to be a prop vendor to other newborn photographers. That’s actually how this whole blog of mine got started. After seeing other photographers in the industry cut up antique quilts to use as basket stuffers, and knowing the hours of work that..

Tree Farm Quilt

As a mom, and even more so as a creative person, I always find myself worked into a mega frenzy during the holidays. It’s never good enough to just brave the crowds and buy my presents on Black Friday.   Nope.   I feel the need to make crazy-complicated gifts, that I almost always start at the last minute and then completely miscalculate how much time and energy I’m going..

{TUTORIAL}: Minecraft Creeper Quilt

Squeeeeee!!!! I finally have a tutorial ready for you. My second born, Andrew, turned nine on January 30th. He has a mild obsession with Minecraft, so I made him this quilt for his birthday.   If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen the video I posted when he saw it for the first time. To say he was excited would be a massive understatement. It turns out, I had.. Read More

It’s my blog and I’ll post what I want to…

So, right off the bat I’m going to let you know that what I’m about about to write has little or nothing to do with quilting or sewing. But it’s my blog and I’ll write about what I want to… And to be quite honest, it’s been on my mind to talk about for a long time. And a blog is a great way to get things off your chest… Read More

One

I can’t believe my baby girl turned one this past week! Eek! Where is time going? I wish it would slow down.  We don’t do the whole “ginormous birthday party for a one-year-old who isn’t going to remember it” thing in our house. We got her a six dollar (and really delicious) cake and we celebrated very simply at home.   As I mentioned in my last post, I was.. Read More

Confessions

I have a confession. I am a little bit addicted to Amazon (confession #1). This came in the mail today: There are several more on the way. It’s not an addiction like, “Oh my goodness, I’ve got to go buy stuff right this second or I’m gonna die.” It’s more like, “Holy crap, I have all this stuff I’m not using and Amazon will give me CREDIT to spend if..

A Lengthy Introduction

I came across this quote today, and it perfectly embodies what I have been itching to write about. It inspired me to sit down and finally write what has been stewing in my brain for days…weeks, maybe. But not until I made the quote look all pretty, of course.     This blog has been waiting to exist for years. And years. Why?     Quilting is absolutely my passion… Read More
