Quilts Quilts Quilts

I’m finding that the more I make, the more I want to make. Which is a very good place to be right now considering I have 2 quilts to finish for my nieces birthdays less than 2 weeks from now. I’m doing my best to balance house work and my main stress reliever (quilting) while doing photoshoots and having toddler time too. Mom’s never have breaks 😛


 I’ve been working on learning more free motion quilt designs and I am so happy I stumbled on this one in Free-Motion Quilting  with Angela Walter. The sweet flowers were the perfect thing for the scrumptious quilt I’ve been working on.


 I decided not to do all flowers, but to separate them with a “vining” of loops. I think it is starting to look like a very sweet quilt.


 I even found a minute of two to work on my farmers wife quilt.

And of course I had a little helper this weekend. She thought mommy needed to reorganize all her fabrics so she pulled them all out for me. >_<



The Farmer’s Wife Quilt

ImageI might be late to the game, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to play. 😉 A few months back I broke down and finally bought The Farmer’s Wife Sample Quilt book.  So far I’ve completed a whooping 3 blocks, but it’s a start. I know it’s a sampler quilt and a lot of times people use scraps and random fabrics for those, but right from the get go I knew that wasn’t what I wanted to do. I am using a wide range of Bonnie and Camille fabrics for this quilt. I LOVE their fabrics.
