I'm bringing Etsy back...

I decided that I miss my spending money, so I am adding a few items back into my etsy shop!
I added a bunch of fun ipad cases made from my favorite Echino fabrics-

pink and brown is always a good thing

I seem to love pink and brown together! and I especially love them together in baby quilts!
I made this quick and easy quilt a few weeks ago using some of my beloved Flea Market Fancy pink fabrics. I hear that this line is being re-released soon so I feel that it is finally okay to use some of my most-loved, most-hoarded fabric!
I quilted random wonky lines over the whole quilt and I love it!
ahhhh pink and brown you have made me happy yet again!

The Sewing Summit

Last weekend I had the very fun experience of attending 'The Sewing Summit" it was GREAT!
I was so lucky that it was held in downtown SLC so I could just drive down!
It was a great time- I attended with my trusty partner in all things crafty, Shannon!
we loved it!
We shopped- and met some great ladies while we went to our favorite shops!

We sewed- a LOT!
check out the sewing room:
I'm pretty sure this is what Heaven looks like- sewing machines & Chandeliers!

as you can see I will be sticking with my usual straight line quilting since I stink at free motion quilting- yikes!
I had such a great time- I learned some new techniques, tried some different things, met a TON of great people, laughed a LOT and enjoyed every minute!

I'm pretty sure I have QMADD-
Quilt Making Attention Defecit Disorder~
I start a project, I'm all into it, plugging along, nearly finished and I lose interest in it..
or I see something somewhere that looks fun and I just have to try it out and the previously started project gets pushed aside!

I was plugging along on this one-

I love it, only one print and a whole bunch of yummy solids in blues and greens- all I have left to do is add the borders and the whole top would be done...
but I keep seeing all these cool starburst blocks online and I just had to make a few-
so the cute little 'blues' quilt has been tossed aside!
QMADD for sure!

One of our favorite Summer treats

During the Summer my nearly 12 yr. old girl and I love to go out for frozen yogurt,
there is a fun place close to our house where we like to go.

She likes everything chocolate on hers- and I mean everything!
I usually get the same every time- tart yogurt with fruit!

Flea Market Fancy 'birdbath' quilt

Another quilt I've been working on. I finished the top now I need to baste it and quilt it!
I will never get sick of this line of fabric-
Flea Market Fancy is my all-time FAVE!
I used the 'Birdbath' pattern by Elizabeth Hartman
