Scoot Baby

I've been sick all weekend, but I have been working on this.
I picked this up as a quilt kit from my local quilt shop.
I'm in love with kits - especially when I'm trying something new, like ensuring the color pattern is placed correctly.  If you remember, the Rainbow Hourglass quilt took me an entire day to figure out the color placement.

I'm just finishing up the binding, while I lay in bed trying to get rid of this nasty cold..

I also tried a new technique (new to me).  Zig-zagging the edges of the quilt after I've machine sewed on the front of the binding.  I hate all the loose threads that sneak out of the binding after I've washed it.  This should hopefully clear up that pesky issue. :)

How was your weekend?  What are you working on?

A Pony Pillow

My 8 year old wanted to make a pillow out of her favorite pair of jammies.
We had a sewing night and whipped this up together.   We fussy cut out the pony that was the PJ top.  Then we took the brown polka dot print, which was the PJ bottoms, and cut them up for the borders.
It was a fun sewing bonding project for mama and daughter. :)

I bought this fabric on sale and didn't realize it was a fleece type material, which I don't normally use. 
 It worked perfect for tying this together.  She ♥'s it.  That's all that matters.

 For lack of a better title, here is a look at some 'stuff' I made this weekend. :)

I Heart Cupcakes Zipper pouch

Sneak peek - Out to Sea quilt top

Have I told you how much I am in love with the 'Out to Sea' line of fabric?? Well, if not, I'm SO in ♥ with it!
It's too cute.  I bought a huge fat quarter pack from here and I think I just might be able to gently squeeze 3 quilts out of it.  Woohoo!!
