Zig Zag quilt

I finally finished my Zig-Zag quilt- I really like how it turned out!
I'm not usually a fan of all solids, but this was a fun change!
I picked it up from the quilter and now I'm giving it a binding!'
p.s.- beware of the quilt guard dog- he is ferocious! :)

String Quilt

this is my String Quilt, or as I like to call it, "My Rainy Day Quilt".
I have been working on this one for several weeks, during all the rainy days here. This has been the rainiest Spring/Early Summer here in Utah that I can EVER remember!! This has been the perfect project to pass the rainy hours!
I think this quilt will be a favorite, I just love the scrappy feel it has!

mermaids, sea horses, and more...

I finished my 'mermaid' quilt top!
this fabric line is so fun, it's called 'mendocino' by Heather Ross and it has sea creatures of all sorts!!

I wish I liked to clean as much as I like to quilt, then maybe my house would look better :)

bag theme for today is...

SCOOTERS!!! vespa scooters!
I love this Japanese Import fabric, it is the yummiest blend of cotton and lined and it features scooters, dots and stripes.

so the bags for today are:
The Big Betty bag in 2 colors of
Scooter fabric:

new bags for Spring...

I decided to make another new bag style to celebrate SPRING!!
It is Spring, right? I think Mother Nature is MAD about something this year.
I would love to see the sun, flowers, and such but sadly it's been cold, windy and rainy around here. So, I pulled out some bright, happy fabric and made some Spring-y bags!!

This bag is the CAROLINE bag:
sunny, flowery, and oh so pretty -made up in beautiful fabric by designer Heather Bailey

so in the past few months I've rediscovered my love of...
It's all I want to do!!! I just love fabric, and there's something so therapeutic about cutting fabric up, and then sewing it into something fun!! I've needed a distraction from motherhood and sewing for fun has filled the need.

Flea Market Fancy fabric...

this is my ALL-Time favorite fabric line, it is sadly out of production, and very hard to find. I have been sitting on this collection for a while now.
I recently made me a quilt out of it and now I've decided to sell some of this gorgeousness in my Etsy shop!!

I have listed a few sets of 6 inch squares
they are so fun!!
I also have a whole bolt of the pink,red, and brown dot ;)
feel free to contact me if you need some!!

I conquered my fear...

of ZIPPERS today!!!

one of my new year's resolutions was to finally figure out how to sew a zipper, they have scared me ever since 8th grade sewing class when Mrs. Be-otch made me sew one and then gave me a D!!!!
I HATED sewing back then, it's funny that my job is SEWING!
If only that teacher could see me now! :)
so, here are the first of several zippy pouches for my Etsy shop-
I have had sooooo many requests for these!
watch for more each day!
