Finally got the quilt top finished up! This whole being a parent thing sure is a time suck. But I’m loving and savoring every minute while he’s a tiny lil’ guy… And we lucked out – he’s very easy going and eating and sleeping like a champ.

I love the Monsterz line for a baby quilt and think this design features it nicely. I’m going to use a lot of it on the back too…

In other news – on the parenting front I’ve learned one thing for sure: people love to give your baby shoes. It’s so cute I had to take a photo.

Shoes

My sister put it best… “Your kid is like freakin’ Imelda Marcos!”

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

You can download the whole catalog here! It’s all so very exciting!

Will I see you all there?!?

Today is my stop on the We Love Color blog tour.

We Love Color

I blogged a while back about the book and my quilt that is included. The book features lots of beautiful quilts!

The focus of the book is all quilts made with only Kona Cotton solids. I’m supposed to pick my favorite Kona cotton color and that’s incredibly hard to do! Do I go with the one I use the most (Coal) or with a more vibrant fun color?? I guess I’ll go with something more exciting than a neutral and pick the yellow in this quilt because I love it a lot… Butterscotch. It’s a great color!

And did you know that there are 28 great new Kona colors?

28 Konas

As part of the tour we were asked to feature one of the new colors, and mine is Parchment which you can see in the photo above, third from the top on the right. It’s a nice tan-ish, taupe-ish neutral. There are so many great new vibrant colors!

The book tour has been running for awhile now and is wrapping up soon but you have another chance here to win a copy of the book and a bundle of all of the 28 new Kona Cotton colors! Comment telling me what you love about sewing with solid fabrics and I’ll post a winner on July 11th. Good luck!

A baby quilt for Gabe

Finally got started on a quilt for Gabe, made by me! The entire pregnancy went by and I didn’t sew a stitch of a quilt for him… but hopefully I’ll get this start finished up this week.

Gabe's Quilt

Oh design wall, where would I be without you? I don’t know how quilters work without one! They are so worth the wall space they take up…
