I had an unexpected rush job pop up this week, so I have been sewing up a storm any time the kids were halfway occupied for the last 3 days!


My friend Julie called early this week to see if I was available to put together a quilt top for her, because she had TWO TWIN size tops she needed to get done by next Wednesday, and she was super busy on top of that. I said sure, she sent me her fabric and said make it pretty! Well, a little more than that, but you know :)


The quilt is for one of the senior girls in her ward(congregation) at church that is graduating this year (The other top she had to do was for their second graduating girl). The Young Women(girls in the ward ages 12-18) always tie quilts for the senior girls as a gift, and they are tying these two quilts next Wednesday, hence the rush!


(the wind helped me with this picture…)

Julie sent me these three gorgeous fabrics, so I went with simple and striking. Of course, I misfigured the blocks and had to re-make 6 of them ‘cause they were the wrong fabric combinations….whoops!

The backing is the navy and white stripe, and is already sewn on three sides, ready for batting to be slipped inside and tied. I love it. Now I want to make a baby boy quilt in navys! Too bad that is an area my stash is sorely lacking…

This quilt is packed up and ready to wing its way to Maryland as soon as the baby wakes up from her nap! Guess I should go put on some makeup then, eh?

Pink and Gray Bento Box

Hey all! I made and gifted a cute baby quilt recently and didn't get any photographic evidence. Luckily, it was for Melanie, and she has blogged it for me :) The post is here!

Hey everyone, I need  a bit of help from you moms out there! 

I need to buy a new infant car seat ASAP (read: tomorrow). We had a slight mishap at church today, and long story short, the handle on our current car seat is now broken. So, I don't have lots of time to shop around and research, so I would LOVE it if you could tell me what kind of infant car seat you have, if you like it or not, and if you drive a smaller sedan, does it fit??

Please please please!! Thank you!!!!
