We moved! and Tula Pink Butterfly Quilt Completed
This post is long overdue, but my excuse is that this summer became defined by a cross country move: we've relocated from Colorado Springs, CO to Merrimack, NH!  Moving across country is no easy task and it was a bit stressful and exhausting at times.  But ...

Orange Zoo Quilt
I bought a big chunk of orange solid fabric at my LQS, an intended project for my three year old son, Owen.  This kid LOVES the color orange- it's seriously uncanny to see his love and devotion to the color- it's definitely not something I taught or encoura...

Clothes for Charlotte
I honestly don't love that my children's school has uniforms.  Well, I actually love it for my oldest son.  He's been picky about what he wears starting at a very early age, making us believe it was something he was born with rather than learned.  So we don...

Finish it Friday: Big Sky Quilt
I have another finish to share!  This quilt came together fast thanks to its small-ish size, using charm packs, and having a deadline.  I made this quilt for one of my favorite friends here in Colorado, Julie.  I met her soon after I had moved from Massachu...

Finish it up Friday: Baby Gifts
I have three "current project" containers and two of the three have been emptied out- I've been very busy!  One of my best friends from my undergraduate days, Aimee, recently had her first child: a baby girl named Olivia.  Aimee and I went on a semester abr...

Union Jack Quilt Finished
 My first big finish of 2018: the Union Jack quilt!  I am so excited to have this long-term WIP completed- I started it almost three years ago.  It's probably the biggest quilt I have ever made, measuring 98" x 116"!  Finding a way to photograph it without ...
