Mom's New and improved Quilt

This quilt was so fun to put together. I originally had a different design in mind, using just half square triangle blocks like the nine in the center. As I started laying them out I really didn't like it.  I then decided to base the quilt around the blocks I loved the most and do fun borders with the left over HST's. 


Quite possibly my favorite part about this quilt are the "tall tails" blocks I made. Plus they're a free pattern!

This quilt is Queen-size so I decided to hand quilt it 



This isn't a great pic, but it shows you a little bit of the quilting I did.

Hexagon scrap quilt

A couple months ago I started sewing together my random hexagon projects and orphan blocks with the intent to make a quilt. It's very random and it has been fun making it up as I go along. I'm trying to use up lots of scraps and remnants and hoping to at least (eventually) get to a throw size quilt.

Typewriter Skirt

This skirt was quite an ordeal. I kept buying the wrong size pattern and found out the orginal fabric I wanted to use wasn't enough yardage. Kerfuffle after kerfuffle and months of letting the pattern and fabric hide in the closet I finally got up the courage to make this simplicity skirt (1369). I had to adjust the back seam twice because it came out HUGE. Simplicity right? Isn't this supposed to be simple? Ah well, it's done and I'm okay - ish with it. Points for having pockets and a cute print. Negative points for making me feel like a poofy muffin.

Crazy flying geese quilt

Finished this crazy colorful quilt! It's full of mistakes and quirks but I love it! I was able to use all the scrap triangles from the flying geese to make hst and incorporate them in the quilt. I also had random orphan blocks that I was able to throw in the mix as well. I  mostly machine quilted this and then went back over certain sections and hand quilted just for an extra finishing touch.

Pomatomus socks

Finally finished these babies! A more complicated pattern than I'm used to in socks, but once I got into the flow of them they were actually quite nice to knit.

Hexagon pillow

I've been wanting to recover one of my desk chair pillows and decided to make it from scraps using paper piecing. There's quite a bit of Star Trek fabric in it, which is funny because I finished it the weekend the new movie came out!

Finished and working on projects

Been playing around scraps and enjoying making random words with my new paper piecing alphabet pattern I got off Etsy. I've also been sewing random sizes of diamonds that will hopefully one day be a quilt. I finished a mini quilt for my mom for Mothers Day with her favorite catchphrase "Just Saying". I finished knitting my "Libbey shawl" and my hexagon mini quilt which is now hanging on my wall.

Crazy Improv Quilt 2

I've been working on this quilt for a while and just finished it last week. Lot of improvised log cabins and random blocks in this quilt. That's probably why I like it so much!

Jasseron Sweater

 Finished my Jasseron sweater a couple weeks ago. I wanted a sweater with a simple back and front but with patterned sleeves. I mulled over a many different options but this one was the closest I could find to what I wanted on Ravelry. I wasn't sold on the pattern at first because even though its a "raglan" it's knit in four separate pieces! (Not my fave, but hey it was a free pattern) I had to fanagle the sleeves and neck a bit in the sewing together process, but all in all not a bad finished sweater!
I used wool yarn from Briar Rose that I got at Maryland Sheep and Wool last year

Jovi's Baby Quilt

My Niece was born last week! Here's the quilt I made her. I tried to stick to only a couple different fabrics as well as a color theme. It's hard! I just want everything to be multicolored

Throwback Friday, yes I know it's supposed to be on Thursday

Here's a baby quilt I made last summer for a friend expecting a baby boy. She loves stars and thankfully I had this lovely fabric already in my stash 
                 
                I used a neon green grid fabric for the back

Hexagon tea cozy

Finished this tea (or coffee press) cozy a couple weeks ago. I used up a lot of my small vintage sheet scraps making this, which is fabulous.
