It’s been a busy (and soggy) season around here, and I realized I hadn’t shared the finished 1st birthday quilt for baby S. I love these fabrics so much, I almost wish I could keep it for myself! Right now, it’s mostly used by my husband as he lays on the floor next to S’s crib for big chunks of the night soothing her back to sleep (teething + weaning = tired husband). . #quiltsinthewild#littlefabric#jennyronen#birchfabrics#madeinnh#quiltersofinstagram
It’s Fri-Yay!!! Woot woot 🎉 . It’s also pattern release day for this sweet & FUN #steeprockquilt by @theblanketstatement 🤗 . I’m already thinking about my next one...maybe one with an ombré effect, but in WHAT COLOUR? . ***Give me your thoughts in the comments below / I’ll make one using whatever colourway is suggested the most *** 👍🏻🌈 .
Finished king size quilt! I bought so many of these fabrics the same weekend that I bought my sewing machine (October 2014) but I'm glad it took me this ling to make it. I've learned so much (like the importance of trimming blocks) and met awesome IG peeps as well as my IRL friend who has a long-arm (and that's the only way this thing got quilted). This was a gift to my parents and is inscribed "Happy Anniversary"... Specifically 45th 46th 47th 48th 49th anniversary as those are the ones it wasn't ready for as well as the one coming up next month. Those are my folks holding the quilt (at an outlet mall, if you can believe it!). 💗 #quilt#finishedquilt#quiltsofinstagram#quiltsinthewild#quiltersofinstagram#makersgonnamake#kingsize#kingquilt#giftedquilt

My daughter and grandson are visiting and brought their homeschool work with them as they slowly finish out 4th grade. I got to join in on Marine Biology and Space Science today. 🔭🌔🌊 It was so fun to get a glimpse into how they do school and make it work for them. And I may have learned a few things myself. 💗
We are on our way home from Alaska! 🏔 This trip has been unforgettable and we have truly had the time of our lives! ❤️ Now, I’m super excited to get home and work on my #churchwindowquilt pattern for you guys!

Quilt finished! We had to finish it quick and do some wilderness sewing and stitching to give it to the little west coast princess while we were all camping together. 99% of the credit goes to @builtbybutter but I was there for moral support, ironing and emergency hand stitching #quilting#hootenanny#boodavis#quiltsinthewild
This is just a quick reminder that the #harvestblossomquilt pattern is 15% off for the next couple days in celebration of its release one year ago this week! 🎉 * * * #azcoquilting #azcoquiltingpatterns #pattern #quiltpattern #quilt #quilting #maker #makemodern #livecolorfully #calledtobecreative #konacotton #konasolids #textileart #modernquilt #modernquilting #quiltersofinstagram #modernquilter #creativewomenrock #creativewomen #sewsolid #builtaquilt #craftsposure #quiltsinthewild #quiltpatterncommunity #aztecquilt#southwestmodern #desertvibes#desertinspiration #sewfun
I've spent a full-on day attending a University seminar about Creative & Visual Research Methods so I am settling down to unwind by reading @quiltfolk . Issue 9 has transported me to Utah, somewhere with so much history & where quilts play a pivotal role throughout its narrative. The #quiltsinthewild photography in this issue is mind-blowing & breathtaking in equal measures! The article that really stood out to me in this issue is a feature with @quilted_rosie & @deanna_m_allred who talk about the potential of social media in enabling patchwork + quilters to be part of a quilting community even when life is so busy it makes it hard to meet in person. We live in a world where social media all-too-often gets a bad rep & there is no doubt that there's a darker side to social media (even within the sewing world), but there is also a really positive side of it where people support, encourage, enable, guide, nurture, teach & inspire one another! It's fantastic to see this positive side of Instagram reflected within a publication! I am off to search out Rosa & Deanna's longitudinal research as it sounds fascinating! Thank you @quiltfolk for creating another beautifully insightful issue! - - #utah#utahgram#quiltfolk#quilt#quilts#sew#sewing#patchwork#patchworkandquilting#quiltsofinstagram#research#publication#craft#fabric#fabriclove#magazine#quiltresearch#womenwhotravel#creativewomen#travel#review#read#reading#making#america#usa

Honestly, I couldn’t tell you the last time I quilted with precuts, but I think that made stitching up this #layercakelattice quilt for @fatquartershop ‘s #precutparade even more fun. It was a quick win, a great “excuse” to play with @riflepaperco fabric, and a lovely Mother’s Day gift for my mama. 💗 To get the pattern and join the party, click the link in my profile, then click on thru to the FQS blog 🙌🏼
"Two lads an’ a little lass just lookin’ on at th’ springtime. I warrant it’d be better than doctor’s stuff" (Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden). Some photos of my finished quilt made of @annamariahorner florals.
I cant believe I finished on time (thank you @loandbeholdstitchery for extending the deadline!) with my machine breaking and being gone for repairs, literally scrubbing blood and blueberry stains out (thank you baby 1), early labor emotions (thank you baby 2), giving birth, and all that post partum goodness. But it's done it's done its done and I'm in love! Now onto the next quilt(s).
