A quick update

Today I've been working on my guest post for the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild blog, including phone interviews (aren't you intrigued??). It will be up tomorrow, but in the meantime, here's a smattering of what I've been up to lately.

My son, Paul, who is 7 and has great taste in fabric ;), has been begging me to make him something with the Riley Blake navy tone on tone chevrons.

I suggested a tie but he said it wouldn't fit into his wardrobe. After going around and around we agreed on a pillow. I whipped this up in about 20 minutes. He's happy. I'm happy.

Not the best photo. The sun refused to shine today :(

Remember these little postage stamp mini quilts I was working on a few weeks ago?

Now they look like this:

Finally, I've been invited to participate in an in-home holiday boutique a week from tonight. Yippee! I've made 9 infinity scarves and I'm working on a stack of cloth napkins for kids. I'm hoping to get a baby quilt or two done, too. Hubby says I should whip up a few chevron pillows after seeing the one I made for Paul. Perhaps that's not a bad idea.

This week is going to be busy, but not too busy to watch the latest episode of Project Runway All Stars, so I'm outta here.

Happy sewing!



  1. Yay, Project Runway! I'd like to see chevron pillows at a craft boutique. What good taste your son & husband have.

  2. Ya know, I too have been making scarves, at the ends to make them "infinity" I fasten a loop of fabric and on the other end a giant wood button, this way it doesn't always have to be infinity ; )....that reminds me i should make a post about them...ah.. maybe tomorrow!

    1. good question! My kids sometimes grab them to use as doll quilts, but lately I've been using them on side tables/bedside tables as the world's largest coaster. Mini quilts also make nice wall art :)
