Sometimes it seems as though I let things get the best of me or maybe I just make to many commitments. However the best part about catching up, is starting something for no real reason at all but to just have a little fun.
I pulled out some charm packs the other day and asked little Sophie to pick one that she wanted to see in a quilt. Of course she picked the butterflies from the Just wing it collection by Moda.
We mixed two charm pack with a few scrap pieces of Kona, and did a simple patchwork quilt. It's not very often that I make a quilt like this anymore but this was a fun project for sophie to help with. It really has been fun doing these much simpler quilts and having her join in. Maybe someday she will be a quilter to.
It turned out so fun, and she loves it.
I ended up piecing the back a little with a few leftover pieces, but came up a little short so I will have to make a quick trip tomorrow and get it finished so that we can quilt it.
I am excited to share Sophie's little beauty after it gets quilted.
While out the other day I picked up these to. They are titanium quilting needles. Made to endure the heat from quilting better. I have heard good things about them so I thought I would give them a try.
Has anyone tried them yet?
It has been quite the busy week here at our house, but we are happy to have had much family time, a finished quilt or two, and a brand new 3 year old. (Check out that cookie cake )
