Butterfly, Bats, and E.T.

I can't think of anything else, other than quilts, where you can talk about butterflies, bats, and E.T. in the same post.  

Luckily, the three are related by my WIPs!!


Lyla's Quilt

One more baby girl quilt kit completed!  I have only one more quilt kit left!  So excited to be clearing out my clearance stash!!

I am still disappointed in my efforts to be random...I am not happy that I got the blocks out of order, but I was too far in to back out of the corner I got myself into! I still adore these prints.  Very girly. 

Flannel backing that is so soft and I actually REALLY like the print!!!  I used my embroidery machine again to make the label.  I can't wait to spend some time making some pretty designs for future quilts.  I went pretty simple with this one and the one I did for the Trick or Treat quilt!

I made up for it with the quilting! Butterflies!!!

Trick or Treat Charm Quilt

Finished!  Details on Trick or Treat were posted yesterday.

In Progress:

ET Dialed It In Quilt

I have few things in progress, but this quilt with all of these beautiful ET Phone home blocks have officially moved to the top of my 'get-er-done' list this week.

The July do. Good stitches blocks have been calling my name.
  I need to make room on my design wall for other projects!

I have decided that option one is the best course of action at this point.  Although, I love option two.  I just can't bring myself to move someone's bee blocks to make room for mine.  It just doesn't feel right.

Sashing fabric

 I have convinced myself that the extra half squares, borders, and sashing will be my contribution at this point. I can't add two blocks without skewing my plans!  I just hope the end product is close, if not better than  my EQ7 "plan".  This one is a tough one to nail down!

Ever have one of those?

Linking up with Lee!!!!!


  1. The baby girl quilt is adorable. Very sweet label as well!

  2. Love that girl quilt. So pretty!

  3. I think your choice of layout is great!
    the only other thing you could try if you like option 2 is to put the darks in opposite diagonal corners as anchors... I sometimes do that if I have 2 blocks that seem to stand out more.
    they're really great blocks though!
    happy little quilts you finished! I really like too how you did that label (I did mine with a permanent marker! gah!) ;)

  4. Love your finishes! The blocks look great and I'm sure it will look fabulous when you're done.

  5. You have been so productive! Great quilts and the blocks are pretty, I am sure it will come together wonderfully.

  6. Lyla's quilt is so sweet! I have the same problem with randomness too!

  7. Sweet quilt. I am always amazed at how busy you are. I think I have a lot to do until I read your blog ;) How do you manage?

    1. I wish I had an answer, I think there might be a bit of insanity in there somewhere!

  8. I love your embroidered label! What a great idea. I've been trying to decide how to do labels, but have never thought to do that!

  9. Wow i am very impressed by this site and really going to share this site to my friends. Thanks for sharing Embroidery Designs


I cannot wait to hear what you have to say! Seriously! It makes my day!
