works in progress

Documenting the process has officially begun.

I”m one of those kinds of people that have way too many projects going on at once! Here are two that I thought I would kick off my Process Pledge with: a crib sized quilt with Lizzy House fabrics and a hexagon lap quilt.

I’m not really sure what kind of design I’ll use for my Lizzy House quilt, but I have fallen in love with the Red Letter Day fabrics. I’ve almost gotten all of them in my hands…just waiting on a few more to arrive on my doorstep.

 I love these fabrics!  And the cute little hexies!

 The hexagon lap quilt will be made from 1″ hexies.  I’m estimating that I will need around 1,000.  I’ve currently basted 74!  Wow…I’ve got a ways to go…

double debut

A debut double feature….my first post and my first quilt. This quilt was the first I completed when I became really, whole-heartedly interested in learning to sew (about 2 years ago) and so this makes it very special to me. Flaws and all. It’s very simple in its construction, and because I wasn’t comfortable (and still not so) with my color combinations, I went with a fairly monotone choice of fabrics. Here it is…thanks for looking! I’ve also added it to the growing list over at the 3rd Annual Bloggers Quilt Festival. Go check out all the great quilts on display over there!
