Mini Charm Chocolate Big Sky Quilt

I have really been 
enjoying piecing as of late.
Just the pure, fun, and
simplicity of sewing a straight line. 
It really has had a hold on
me for the last couple months.

When Fat Quarter Shop announced
that they would be holding a Quilt-A-Long
for a new pattern using mini charms, 
I was all in. A sweet little quilt
made from Moda Mini-Charms.
And with the release
of this new fabric,
I was in.


I absolutely love this fabric line.
It is Big Sky designed by Annie Brady
for Moda.
The colors and designs are
just my cup of tea.
You can find the line of fabric
at Fat Quarter Shop.
The background fabric is
Moda Grunge Basics White.

There are several option sizes
to this quilt.  I choose
to do the lap size quilt
and I just love it.


Being that I felt that the fabric and quilt were
directional.  I really didn't want
bears or moose on
their heads, so when constructing
the quilt, I paid close attention to
the direction of each fabric.


It was a bit more time consuming that way,
but I really like that every fabric is
the same direction.

It is quilted with Aurifil
50 wt. #2830.
A lovely mint green,
you can find the color here.

I tried something a little different
with this quilt as well.
I cut striped fabric on the bias
to create a really fun
diagonal strip for the binding.



It has to be one of my favorite
backs and binding that I have
added to a quilt.
Just makes it all pop.



Problem is that every time I
make something, it doesn't stay in my hands
very long.
My son saw the fabrics and really
loved that it didn't look girlie.
So, I think this one will be wrapped 
under the tree with his name on it.


If you would love an adorable little,



You may purchase this lovely quilt kit Here

or choose your own fabrics and follow the free video tutorial HERE.

You won't be disappointed.  
The quilt was an absolute joy to 
piece together.

Christmas Caroling Show and Tell

Today is the day to reveal what 
we decided to do with our
Christmas Caroling Row
that we created for
Row Along put together
by Marian of Seams to Be Sew.

If you recall that my row was 
a Nutcracker.


Which you can find the pattern for here.

I could have just finished him up and created a cute little
wall hanging, but that just would not do.
He would have looked lonely on the wall 
hanging there.


So how about a second Nutcracker, 
with a snowflake on his hat.


And a few more Holly Jolly accents to 
add to the whole quilt to get 


a happy little Christmas quilt.
It measures 41" x 53".
You can find the pattern to the quilt 

I was quite excited to finish my second
Christmas quilt.  I can't wait to 
have this cutie hanging on our wall 
this holiday season.

 
Thank you so much for visiting,
please stop in to visit the rest of the hoppers
that have finished a row or two.

Marian – Seams To Be Sew
Nancy M – Patchwork Breeze

Also showing off my quilt at the Show Off Saturday

August's Aurifil DOM Block


I am not as far behind as it 
might look with the
Aurifil DOM 
Block of the Month.

I forgot to take a couple pictures 
of the blocks that I just 
finished in the last few weeks.
Waiting on kids 
and not being able to be near a sewing 
machine can get you caught up 
a lot quicker on these embroidered 
beauties. 


Here is August's block.



I really love how dainty
and pretty this one turned out. 


Here are the other two that 
I had taken previous pictures of.


I can't wait to show you the rest of them.
The fabrics I am using are
from Craftsy own collection.
It is called Flower Shoppe.


If you are looking for August's
block you can find it here.

I sure hope I can catch up 
with the couple that I have 
missed during the summer months.
Wish me luck!!
