I got a request for a girly non-pink Katy Kitty.

She got a dress out of the coveted Tula Pink fabric!

Some gorgeous purple herringbone wool on the back.

Here is her other dress. This is the dress that comes with the kitty pattern. I absolutley hate how it fits!!! It doesn't fit, I don't know how to make it fit. Gah. So that's why I made her the other dress. I just don't feel like this dress looks good enough to sell.

argyle quilt

I made this quilt at the same time that I made the twins's quilts- I guess I was feeling quilty!!

I used this tutorial from Moda Bake Shop, with a few changes.

I used a charm pack that I had had forever, (Calliope by Riley Blake) a Bella solid brown, and Essex linen in Putty.

I scored the fabric for the back on super sale at a quilt shop in Utah. I guess procrastination pays off sometimes!!!

The quilting is simple, but I love how it looks!!! It's a machine pattern called cotton candy.

I might sell it, but I've never sold a quilt before. Any interest? Email me!

baby quilt for lark

 photo IMG_2916_zps4c73dec4.jpg
I've been dying to make this quilt pattern- so when Kim wanted a quilt for her new baby girl I was so excited that she picked it!!!

The front.

We picked a color palette, and I picked fabric from there!

The back.

Of course I had to pick the eyelet for the ruffles- making it harder for myself. But using a gathering foot made it SO MUCH EASIER!!! If you make this quilt- use a gathering foot. 

Since the eyelet has holes- I had to back the quilt top with a matching solid underneath so you wouldn't see the batting. It worked out well!!!

Of course the quilting is amazing. Holly always does such a great job!

So sweet.

I just love making baby quilts for people that let me make a lot of the creative decisions! Thanks!!!

bird mobile for Lark

My friend Kim is having her 3rd baby, and second girl! I am making a quilt for her and she also wanted a mobile to match.

I used the same fabrics from the quilt, plus matching felt and felt balls.
