This weekend I got a quick little quilt top sewn up using the Brrr! fabric by Laurie Wisburn. The wind would not cooperate with me at all while I was taking this photo, but you get the idea…

You all know that I’m not one to use a ton of patterned fabrics but I felt that a little went a long way with this adorable line. Even my husband thinks it’s really cute. Guess we’ll be keeping this one for the lil’ guy on the way!

Oh but hey! There’s something for you too!

How about fat quarters of the whole line? Drop me a comment and I’ll be picking a winner at random on Friday the 6th. Good luck!

Brrr!

A bit ago I was lucky enough to be sent some of Laurie Wisburn‘s latest fabric line Brrr! It’s so cute!

Brrr

I pulled some grays (because let’s be honest, when do I not??) and added what is fast becoming one of my favorite neutral fabrics, Robert Kaufman’s Yarn Dyed Essex Linen, Flax. It reads like a linen but is easier to work with since it’s a cotton blend. It’s gonna go so well with these lil’ polar bears!

Brrr with Solids

I made the first few cuts into the fabric this weekend and look forward to putting together a little (boy) baby quilt!

New Flea Market Fancy!

Look at what I was lucky enough to get a bit of from Westminster in the mail!

Flea Market Fancy!

How exciting that they are reprinting Denyse Schmidt‘s great line! I even scored and got some of the beloved gray seeds!

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend.  By the way, there’s BIG news coming from The Modern Quilt Guild on Monday so keep your eyes open for it!

Boy!

So! I found out that we’re having a boy! I’ll admit that I was thrown for a serious loop because for a number of reasons I’ve had nothing but girls on the brain the whole time I’ve been pregnant. But the surprise made finding out much more exciting than I’d expected it to be. I was just (stupidly) pretty certain it was a girl so it really was a huge surprise!

Of course I instantly had to pull some fabric for a baby quilt for MY baby!

New Baby Quilt for MY baby!

I’m off the the 2nd annual LAMQG retreat today (four days of sewing with friends! What could be better??) and I hope to get something started. I’ve got lots of other projects to work on too…

And otherwise, I did some blog/pinterest/google searching and there just aren’t that many cute boy tutorials out there, are there? I’ve heard this from lots of moms but hadn’t experienced it first hand. So tell me, what’s your favorite pattern or tutorial for boy stuff? I wanna make this kid more than quilts!

Getting started…

A few years back I made these quilts for some twin baby girls…

Not much like what I’m doing these days, huh? Well the twins are lucky enough to have welcomed a younger sister into the world, and their parents requested a new quilt in the same colors. I don’t have a lot of those fabrics anymore, but I have some… so I pulled a bunch of pinks and greens.

We’ll see what I come up with! 

For those of you in the States, hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I’ll be busy cooking and spending time with family for the rest of the week.  See you next week!
