Sewing Machine Love

I may not be a good blogger, no, I am a terrible blogger, but I am always sewing. If a day goes by and I can't sew I feel like something is missing.
 I have been making a few dolls, but a lot of quilts.

I made 2 low volume quilts and actually kept one for myself. Because I got a little carried away cutting 5" squares, I will be able to make several more.


You don't think it is going to work out with all of the different fabrics but I think low volume quilts turn out so nice.
  

Close up…..

My cute photo bomber...

A custom quilt for someone who lives in Germany...


 Another custom quilt….I always get such a warm feeling when someone actually wants to buy one of my quilts. 


A doll and dolly quilt for a very sweet mama….


What are you working on? I would love to see pictures. 

Is anyone interested in doing a "Charmed Whirlygig" quilt along? I have a flickr group that I can revive…I thought it would be fun to do this winter. Please let me know.

Take care and stay warm and safe if you are living where it is snowing and frigid.

Just can't stop

I love quilting and always have, but I have reached new heights of "have to quilt" lately. I find the whirr of the sewing machine so soothing and just love the last stage when you pull a quilt from the dryer and it is all crinkly and warm. I also love all of the stages, so I don't shove tops in drawers like I maybe have in the past.

More hexagon love







Take care,

Hexagon Quilts

I have discovered hexagons...well the large ones. I tried English  piecing a few years ago and decided it wasn't for me. But I love sewing the larger ones. I used a half hexie ruler with this doll quilt and will quilt a lap sized one tomorrow.


Hope everyone is doing well,
Cathy

Late to the Party

There have been so many beautiful pictures of the granny square quilt block as well as quilt alongs. I promised myself that I would make a quilt using them. I am a little late to the party but am just smitten with making this block. The color possibilities are endless.


Now just 19 more to go. ;-)

Take care,
Cathy

New Quilts

I have been selling some of my quilts and it makes me so very happy!



 And I have been using a fusible interfacing to make pillow covers and love this method. It seems to be so much faster than sewing the small squares one at a time.
Take care,
Cathy

Beavering away

I have been working hard in my studio making lots of quilts and pillows as well as learning how to sew hexagons and of course dolls.











 I am excited to see photos from Quilt Market this year. I can not wait until Bonnie and Camille's new line Scrumptious hits the quilt shops. 
Take care everyone,
Cathy
