Baby Quilts & Shop update!

  ~ Look at this treasure! I came across this in a shop and I had to get it. The colors are so soft and the little piggies are to die for!! They don’t get any better than this.  This quilt has been machine pieced, hand quilted. There is a display sleeve that has been added to the back. The colors are pink, lavender, rose, blue and grey. The binding is in the gray piggy fabric and the back is the coordinating gray. It is too cute for words!

      ~It is ready to go and in my shop!

   ~ I went ahead and put this little quilt in my shop  as well.

~Another quilt done~


Another “vintage inspired” strip quilt.  I just can’t say how much I love this fabric.  It obviously is a seasonal type vintage fabric. I just finished the Summer version, and this would be the Spring version.  I love love love it! 

The dragonflies, polka dots and the stripes and then the gray, it just works ~

it is hard to see but the cream colored fabric with the tiny yellow buds (just above) is one of my favorites choices.  This is the first time I did not use white for the quilting, and I love the color it provides.

The back is simple with scrap blocks..

It has been freshly laundered, crinkled and it is cozy.  Perfect for a little one. I have to say these photo’s are all prior to the washing…
I think this one might go to Etsy…

~Birds in a bowl~

   ~I found the cutest vintage thing the other day… not exactly sure what this is supposed to be, but it has multiple birdies hanging on a string with beading. There is a very tiny bell on the very bottom.  We have it hanging on my daughter’s door as a part of her catatorium, dont ask!    I first had them  placed them in a  wooden bowl from the thrift store… 

They are the coolest thing and what I love the most is the colors of each bird with the little beading detail for eyes and beak, and a little tassel tail matching the main color of each bird…

Here they are hanging~

I found a few other little goodies that I am saving for later.

We have been enjoying the best fall ever! The weather has been warm during the day and cool at night, just perfect for roses and the last of our fall flowers~

We have been enjoying some wonderful soaking rains as well…

   ~ lovely orange mums

a little pink rose, think it is the Knockout.. it is a good doer along with all of my antique roses. This has been a great fall for roses! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

~A quilt and a bubble~

     ~ I have been sewing for baby Charles~


 ~ First a precious baby bubble~


I used a pattern by Creations by Michie,  it has french seams, pintucks, just a touch of machine embroidery and a cute little piped collar.

~ and every little baby needs a quilt…


I think the color and pattern will suit a baby as well a growing little boy..

all that is left to do is to finish hand-sewing the binding on.  I love the back and will get a picture of that once it is completely done.

~my first commissioned pieces, hope they are well received.
