A little throwback to my Early Bird quilts in progress a few weeks ago. But you want to know what’s pretty and in progress today? Yeah, nothing. 😂 Oh my gosh you guys, I am so dang tired. Yesterday I unpacked and cleaned and sent emails and orders and got everything somewhat back together. I was fine. Tired, but fine. And then it all just kind of hit me all at once last night. I got a text from Nic’s (amazing/wonderful/incredible!) second grade teacher to remind me about his awards assembly today and ocean program tomorrow and I burst into tears. I was just sure she was texting me because I am a terrible mom who keeps forgetting things because there’s been so much on my plate. It’s the last week of school and for weeks we’ve had programs and banquets and recitals and Quilt Market was mixed in there too. You know that feeling when you feel like you are doing everything halfway and failing at all of it? Yeah, that. - I went to the assembly first thing this morning wearing a hat (because I haven’t had a chance to wash my hair since I got back) and feeling all the feelings on the second to the last row when a few of the moms mentioned that they were so glad the teacher texted them because she had forgotten to send a paper with the reminder home with the kids. I seriously didn’t know whether to laugh or cry! - Why is balancing everything so dang hard? And why do we women and mothers take it so personally when we can’t do it all? One of my favorite speakers, @jeffreyrholland said, “We get credit for trying, even if we don’t always succeed.” So today, I tried. I did my best. And I’ll do it again tomorrow. If you are feeling like me this week, this month (but seriously May is the worst!!) or this year, let’s do it together. ❤️ 💘 Follow @Quilting.S.Jacobsen for more 😉 * Comment below if You like this 💕 * 💘 Tag your friends 👇 #quiltingismybliss#quiltingisfun#quiltingfun#quiltingit#quiltingtutorial#quiltingclass

Now would be a really excellent time to finally make a design wall 😜😬 (also, sneak peek a shirt no 1 in some woven I picked up at quiltcon!) I’m totally not done making blocks but I couldn’t help but lay some of this out to see how it’s shaping up together. Debating whether to keep it super scrappy or potentially try to group similar fabrics into little ranges 🤔 Happy Saturday Sewing! I’m back to cutting fabric to catch up on orders (if you ordered in the last week everything will be out the door first thing Monday morning!) 💘 Follow @Quilting.S.Jacobsen for more 😉 * Comment below if You like this 💕 * 💘 Tag your friends 👇 #quiltingfun#quiltingcotton#quiltingisfun#quiltinglife#quiltingaddict quiltingismybliss #quiltingbee#quiltingclass#handquilting#modernquilting#quiltingit#quiltingtutorial
My finished #northstarquilt. Please note it took two little quilt holders. It is Christmas quilt number one out of three I have planned. I am making these all for my home with minky backing. I saw this pattern from @emily_dennis_ last Christmas and knew I needed to find the perfect Christmas fabric. My local quilt shop still had Overnight Delivery by @sweetwaterfabric for @modafabrics and it was love at first site. I can't wait to get this prepped to send out to @knotandthread for some lovely snowflakes, or holly berry or...well she has so many good ones!
