Americana quilt

So a few days ago, I started working on Americana quilt for the table and yesterday I finally got the top finished! Yay! I really like the way it turned out. I used 4*4 cotton squares I bought on eBay a long time ago. I had the idea in my head for a while now, I think I've seen something similar to this before. Any comments are welcome, for now I just need to base it and quilt it along with the baby quilt.

Working on a baby quilt: Part II

So, I worked on the baby quilt for a little bit yesterday and this morning. The top is now finished and all I have to do now is to line it and quilt it, which is still a lot of work. In the meantime, I got distracted and decided to make matching dresses from some leftover fabric for my babysitter's girls. I hope they fit! The girls are 2 and almost 4, but they're almost wearing the same clothes, so I made the dresses the same size. I didn't use any specific pattern, just cut and sewn fabric together :)) I'll have to take them to her later today, hope they like it!

Working on a baby quilt

My sister-in-law is going to have her baby girl at the end of July. She already has 2 boys and this will be her 1st little girl. I make something for all newborn kids in my family. I wanted to make a quilt for her and send it to my sister-in-law before the baby is born. She lives in Cincinnati and it's a very long drive from here, so unfortunately, I don't think that we're going to be going there to see the baby right away.

So, I started on this quilt yesterday. I've had the embroidered blocks for a while and just kinda started sewing around them and making my own pattern. This is what I have accomplished as of yesterday.

Sorry it's been so long!

Wow, I have not posted anything for almost 2 months now!!! This is insane!

So, I quit my job and decided to be stay-at-home mom and take care of my 5-year old and devote more time to my husband. It was not a last minute decision, I swelled on it for a while. I was not happy at my job for a while, but we needed the money. Then, a few bills got paid off and I scrunched up some numbers and figured out that we can make it if I stay at home and we should be ok :)

So now, that I have more time on my hands, especially since Lucas is still at school during the day, I can work on my Etsy stuff. I've been sop bad the past month, that I have not even touched my crafts, except for may be doing some crochet while at work a few times.

My plan is to have more stuff listed by the end of the month and also to finish at least 1-2 projects per week. We'll see how that goes.

Well, see ya later!
