Thankfully The Sewing Room is well on its way to transforming into her alter-ego.. The Guest Room. In-laws arrive on Wednesday. I used the rolls of binding I made up for three of the finished tops as cute decoration in the guest room. I thought they were funny.

I finished another top today. I named it Polka Dot Pigtails. Its for the Hubby's 2 1/2 year old niece. After this I only have one quilt left to make on his side to be caught up with the nieces and nephews. I know I'm boring and used the same pattern as the Christmas quilt for my parents. I can't help it. I saw this fabric and thought it fit our niece's personality. Plus, even though I only used two fabrics which would normally be quite boring, I think this pattern makes the two stand out in an interesting way. Like, its simple, but interesting.

It was super simple, and I love the way it turned out. Its a Christmas gift for my Mom and Step-dad.

This Christmas quilt has been a fun project I have been working on here and there. I indulged in 4 charm packs from Moda's Figgy Pudding by Basic Grey. I just pieced them somewhat randomly and I LOVE it. I bought some yardage for the border and I picked up a fantastic red print for the backing. It turned out 72x72. A nice throw for the living room. I am excited. I will make it into a sandwich once my batting order from Joann's arrives. ( I have resolved to buy batting by the bolt) I am thinking that with the quilt along, this one and a couple others on my summer projects list, I should be plenty occupied on our drive to Michigan this summer.

And when the Hubs put the monster down for his nap he covered him up with the quilt and I took a pic. So sweet. Although I am extremely nervous because a couple days ago the monster was barfy and I'm hoping these quilts won't get the vomit christening for a long long time. *Fingers crossed*
This little quilt is my 13th quilt. Go Me!!

I got my first block done for the sampler I am making along with my cousin. Its a cake stand. I LOVE it. It was quick to put together too. We are planning on making 42 blocks or so... Next its my turn to pick. I think I'll pick a bear claw.
It was an extra exciting mail day. I happen to catch sight of the mail truck at our box while I was walking through the living room, and when I went out to retrieve it my new quilt pattern book had arrived. And when I looked up I saw the UPS truck on the loop next to ours so I knew he would be right by to deliver my fabric order. It was so exciting. I got the Amy Butler fabrics I ordered to do the quilt along at Old Red Barn Co. I got the strips cut lickity split. I am having a bit of a debate as to how to group them. I always doubt my color choices then love them later on so I'm starting to not doubt myself, I just figure I'll grow to love it.
This is one group...
And this is the other.... I think.. Hahaha
