The holidays were busy. They were spent with my family, just my husband and our two little girls. No family came to visit, nothing crazy happened, we just relaxed and enjoyed it all. Our littlest turned 2, and we celebrated that with a few friends and cake (and a breakfast donut). Nothing crazy. Crazy will happen once they get older (I can only assume). I made a height ruler chart too!
So, I jumped on the Brimfield Awakening train, and am obsessed. Or just obsessed with all things english paper piecing. I am participating in their Brimfield Awakening swap, and I have a couple Brimfield Star Blocks put together, just trying to decide on what to turn it into. I wanted to do a hoop art quilt, but of course I don’t think I can fit a 14″ plus hoop in a box to ship, so I might have to save that for myself. Odds are it will be a mini quilt or a table runner. I just need to put together one more block then, and assemble and quilt. (first picture is my practice, second two are for the swap)
I also made the English Paper Piecing of the Pollen Pillow from my Quilter’s Planner by Kitty Wilkin. Now I want to do the pollinate quilt pattern… I am totally going down the hole, but it’s a good thing! I still need to turn it into a pillow, but I got the basis of it started.
I also thought it would be fun to fit some shapes together and make my OWN EPP, so I am working on putting something together that will be a wall hanging with just solid rainbow colors. I look forward to seeing it all finished.
I have like 12 quilts I need to make, and 1000 that I want to make. I wish I were made of money so I could buy all the fabric in the world and do as I please.
Also, side note, I started glittering cups. I am going to make one for my Brimfield Awaking Swap Partner as a little extra something to make up for my lack of creativity on what I made her. I hope it goes over well. This is one I made for myself, I couldn’t add a video, but the picture doesn’t do its glitter justice.
I finished my Quilter’s Planner 2018 Block of the Month too! I need to quilt it.
We are digging ourselves out of some weird snow bubble that hit the Pacific Northwest. I’m from Minnesota, so it was nice to have, but I will admit, I have not left my house in 6 days! I am starting to go crazy!
So that’s it for now, that I can wrap around my brain. Hopefully I will share more progress along the way. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram. You would probably know ALL of these things already if you were there.
