I have started sewing the butterflies together. I suppose I could have done them assembly line style but I kind of like making them one at a time. The one above is the first finished one. It's one of the D-butterflies - second largest - and I have to make four of them. I finished… Continue reading Lepidoptera Quilt in the works
I made Sofia a Playdate Dress last year with a green elephant fabric.She's worn it a lot of times and I love the silhouette of it. I've also gotten a lot of comments on the fabric. Apparently elephants are popular.The fabric is a generic cotton fabric I found in the Patchwork section of my local… Continue reading Playdate anyone?

Fabric hanging to dry in anticipation of being cut and made into a baby quilt for our new little cousin.It's all in greens, yellows and lilac/purple so it can fit both a boy and a girl without being glaringly unisex.
My friends ask me how I find the time to craft as much as I do, which btw isn't as much as some craft bloggers out there.I work full time and I have two kids, but I also have a husband who share my life and he does as much at home as I do,… Continue reading Quilt top done and basted
Isabel's quilt top is finished. Or is it? I'm thinking I need to put some of the white sashing as borders around it to make the binding really pop?The blocks were so much fun to make and when I looked at some other projects with the Disappearing 9-patch pattern I discovered lots of other ways… Continue reading Quilt top done?
