I had a bit of spare time yesterday so I hauled out my recently finished teacup quilt for photos. This is actually one of the very first quilts I ever made but it’s been sitting in my closet waiting for the day that I felt confident enough with free motion quilting to attempt quilting it. I finally came to the conclusion that FMQ and I are not going to be getting acquainted anytime soon, so I sent this off to be quilted. I used the Tea Cozy pattern out of McCall’s Quick Quilts. The fabric is a mix of Lakehouse Dry Goods and Bunny Hill’s Windsor Lane collections. I love these fabrics so much! How can you go wrong with teacup fabric?!

I suppose it’s because I don’t really have a whole lot to say other than: first foray into PDF Patterns… yay! =D I needed to make a hat for the Grub to take to preschool so I decided I wanted to try to make a hat based on takochu, a Japanese octopus stacking game. I have a slight obsession with takochu and I own a lot of them. I has a very much incorrect assumption of, “Oh hey as long as I’m making a pattern, I might as well write up a PDF pattern ’cause it will easy, right?” WRONG. It took so much more time than I ever expected. I had a ton of fun doing it but [...]
