Busy, busy, busy!

11.12.2014

Work at Cotton Creek Mill is keeping me busy and my down time is spent in the sewing room. I have no complaints! My job is going very well. I am working more hours and I got a raise! I am now able to fully fund my hobby all by myself. That feels pretty great, I must say!!

I have been trying to catch up on some quilt tops I made last year and get them into the finished pile. This is one of them. =) A little pink overload, don't you think?



The back isn't very pretty, but it works for me. I don't normally buy Christmas fabric, so I was pretty limited on what I could use for the back and I am trying to shop my stash before I go out to buy more fabric. 


I made this quilt top as a store sample using Atelier by 3 Sisters. The pattern is Tapestry from the book Fat Quarter Style by It's Sew Emma. Our shop will have it sent out to be longarm quilted. I really love how this one looks. =)



A few weeks ago, I finished Pineapple and Figs by Fig Tree & Co. using Autumn Lily by Blackbird Designs. It's sitting while I decide if I want to add a border or not and I have no clue how to quilt it. I may have to save up and send it out to be longarm quilted. I have never done that before, so the thought makes me a bit nervous!! 


Lastly, I began cutting the fabric to make Shortcake by Cluck Cluck Sew. Someone, somewhere on the web/Instagram was/is doing a sew-along using this pattern. I am way behind to join in on the sew-along, however, this is one pattern I have always wanted to make and it is perfect for my Miss Kate jelly roll. I decided to make the twin size quilt, so I added strips of fabric from other Bonnie and Camille lines I have in my stash. I admit it, I am a huge fan of Bonnie and Camille. HUGE! 


Now I gotta run. Hi-ho, hi-ho, its off to work I go!!

May your fabric always be pressed and your scraps in control. =D Have a happy Wednesday!!

  4. I'm so glad you are loving your job. It truly is the perfect job for you by the sounds of it! Your pink trees are adorable and not a pink overload at all. I LOVE your pineapple quilt & I think a border would be a lovely way to finish it. If you send it to a longarm quilter I highly recommend Kathy from Stitch by Stitch. She is amazing! I am considering the shortcake quilt along as well. I bought a jelly roll of Scrumptious specifically for that pattern a while back but I have so many WIPs that I'm hesitant to add yet another. We'll see how long I can hold out. :)
