Liam’s 1st Birthday

Remember that shirt I made for Liam?

Well here is the aftermath:

I am still cleaning cake out of his ears and the shirt is now soaking under a layer of oxyclean.

August Bee Blocks

I got to work with lots of fun fabrics for my August quilting bee’s!

Jolene asked for scrappy, happy blocks for her baby quilt in Fresh Modern Bee:

I love that orange solid.

Melissa asked for one block with circles and one block with whatever we wanted for her baby quilt, for Bee Happy:

I wanted to see what a classically pieced block would look like with a log cabin-esqu border.  I am only “eh” about the results.  If I could go back and do it again, I have a whole other block in mind.

This was my first time trying a reverse-applique circle and I love results!

I used this tutorial.

Leslie asked for spiderwebs using softer colored vintage sheets for Vintage Sheet Quilting Bee.  She also asked for us to leave the sections unsewn, so that she can mix them up.  Less matching of points for me!

On to September and it is my month in one of the Bees.  I’m so excited to see what everyone creates for me!
