Perhaps you have noticed this blog is called beanniequilts and there hasn't been any quilting. When I first started my blog (a long time ago) quilting was my main crafty thing. I still love quilting but I also love sewing, knitting, crochet, embroidery etc... I did a fair amount of quilting this fall. I made a twin and a (almost) full size quilt top. My plan had been to make three quilt tops by Christmas. I thought that since I am so into quilting that we really needed bed quilts in our home. I made a twin quilt top for Stella(who is still in her crib but I want to be ready). I made Matt and I an almost full size quilt top (I did the swoon quilt and it fits just fine), and then I wanted to do a twin one for Luke. But the Swoon took much longer and I didn't get to Luke's. And then I started this blog right before Christmas and there hadn't been any quilting since.
Tomorrow I have an all day sewing day with my friends. My plan is to finish cutting the fabric for Luke's quilt today and then get started on piecing tomorrow. I am making this plus quilt. I was going to do a pow wow quilt but I lost the pattern. And I think after the swoon quilt that I am all set with triangles right now. I am going to use linen for the background and lots of other random fabrics. I am a little nervous about how these random fabrics will look together.
I will leave you with a picture of the last finished quilt I made. You don't get a great look at the quilt but you can see it being enjoyed. This is one of my favorite patterns. It is the Tulip Wonderland by Kate Henderson. I totally copied the fabrics (Wonderland by Momo) she used (except for the binding). I really love her blog and everything she makes.
oh and I just took this picture of them playing "library time". You can see a really old scrappy quilt I made and the Tulip Wonderland quilt being again too. It is also an excellent fort making quilt. I just love having handmade quilts all over our house.
