Custom Out to Sea quilt #1

I've been a busy girl.  I have had 2 custom quilt orders, both with SJ's Out To Sea collection.  Now, if you know me, you can imagine the squeals that ensued when I got these requests.  I love me some SJ fabric.
This is the 1st one.  The 2nd one is still in progress....more to come later.

This is for her 2nd daughter, but her 1st daughters name is Amelia.  So how perfect we happen to have a pirate girl named Amelia. :)  So I fussy cut her and made sure she was in there.

All packaged and ready to go!

Um, I can't remember if I showed this one, but again, it's SJ fabric, with some others thrown in there.  I'm too lazy to go back and see if I have posted this one before, it's been finished for a while, but it just got it's formal photo shoot. ;)  I loved doing this big log cabin block.  It was so much fun.  Other than making sure I had enough yardage for the long size strips, it was easy.

The little girl on the elephant is my favorite.  I want to be her.  With the balloons...and maybe some cupcakes.

And...bibs.  Yup.  I have found SOOO many cute fabrics, destined to become bibs.  I love this little woodland print.  So cute.

Here is the boy set.  Little raccoons...Cute!

I love the little dogs tho.  All I need to do is put the little snaps on the boy sets.  Does anyone else hate those little snaps?  It's like 7 out of 10 actually work right.  So frustrating.  I'll keep practicing...hopefully I can get to 10 out of 10. Haha!

I have a million and a 1/2 Christmas projects I need to get started on.  Stress!!!  What are you all planning on making for Christmas gifts?  If any?  I overextend myself every year, then I am a Grinch.  Hopefully I can finish them up in good time this year.  Fingers crossed.

  1. Wow! Sew many lovely finishes! The quilts are both very sweet... But those bibs are absolutely adorable! Hmmmmm... I have never made any, but if those snaps are such a pain, have you thought about using velcro? Just an idea! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Cute. I agree the snaps are a pain. Good luck.

  3. I love the new Out to Sea quilt! (And yes, you have shown the other Sarah Jane one before, but that's okay... looking at pretty quilts never gets old!) The bibs are great; I really like the woodland prints.

  4. Great bibs and love your Out to Sea quilt :D

  5. Looks great! Love the fussy cutting :)

  6. Gorgeous makes, as always! As you know I'm a huge SJ fan, I've not seen the fabric with the text on it before, that's so adorable! I love your giant log cabin quilt too, what a good idea and it showcases that lovely central panel beautifully. I'm so busy sewing for Christmas, I've just make my children some Christmas tags to go around their (rather plain) Santa sacks. Hope to blog about them later :-) x

  7. Love them both! Congrats! The bibs r darling! Hopefully my hand gets better and we can sew soon. I have many gifts to make too! (Not sleeping due to my hand ;(. )

  8. I love the log cabin with a panel in the center. I may have to do that with the halloween panel I just bought...

  9. The custom quilt looks fantastic. What a great collection of fabrics. Love what you have done with it.
    The quilt with the big log cabin block is also fun. Love the way it uses the panel.
    And the bibs are gorgeous.

  10. Both quilts are beautiful, and I LOVE the bibs! Fabulous fabric choices for them, they are just adorable. Did you use a pattern for the bibs, or is it your own design?

  11. Oooh! What an array of beauties!! Those quilts are beaoootiful, ah how I love 'out to sea'!
