What do you do when you have too many WIPs? Why, start a new project, of course!! 😉Can't wait to sew with these beauties ❤️ #newquiltproject #monamifabric #basicgrey #modafabric #showmethemoda #quilting

Started my year off with a little charity sewing. These rice warmer bags will benefit cancer patients undergoing chemo at the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Utah. Jessica @sawitloveditmadeit has organized this effort and I believe you still have time to participate if you'd like. Check her feed for all the details. Thanks Jessica for allowing me to play a small part in providing comfort & love to cancer patients!

I'm so glad I took the leap & joined IG in 2016 (on leap day 😂) I've been so inspired by the incredible talent of this wonderful quilting community. Your kindness & encouragement has warmed my heart & motivated me to try new things & challenge myself every day. I can't wait to see what everyone makes in 2017!!! 💕🎉💕 Happy New Year! 🎆🦄💜🎆#2016bestnine #2016sewingbestnine #2016quiltingbestnine

All 12 blocks of my #sunshinequilt 💚💛💙 I can't even begin to tell you how much I learned this year from Leah. I had never attempted FMQ & had zero confidence & 100% fear in trying! All that has changed! I may not be great, I may be a little slow, but dang, I ain't afraid!! 👊 Great experience & instruction! Thanks Leah! 😘 @leahdayquilting #machinequiltingparty #blockpartyquilt #machinequiltingblockparty2016 #juki #jukilove

Finished this Sun Explosion block last night! Trying desperately to finish all my blocks in 2016! This is the December block in Leah Day's machine quilting block party! I'll join the blocks next year but it's cool that they're already quilted!! 😎 @leahdayquilting #blockpartyquilt #sunshinequilt #machinequiltingparty #machinequiltingblockparty2016 #juki #jukilove #olfa #olfasplash

And here are all my blocks for the #sugarblockclub 💜I have had so much fun this year learning to make all these blocks! Thank you Amy! 💕 @stitcherydickory Don't think I'll get it sewn together in 2016 😉 but I've got Amy's #thequiltblockcookbook (LOVE it!!) to contemplate the different layouts in her book as I ring in the New Year! 💜💚💜 #sugarblockclub2016 #sewmystash2016 #workingmystashoff #blockofthemonth #heatherbailey #heatherbaileyfabric #juki #jukilove

Block 11 'Glitter Star' of Leah Day's Machine Quilting Block Party. I had to piece this one 3 times! 🙄 maybe too much 🍷during the holidays? The good news is I only had to quilt it once!! 👊 #sunshinequilt #blockpartyquilt #machinequiltingparty #machinequiltingblockparty2016 @leahdayquilting #juki #jukilove

Giving a little credit to my helpers both during (um, no way) and after the quilt making.... Hubby 😎checking to see if I've left him alone in a field 😂 and sweet Cooper 🐱 making sure the quilt doesn't get away! Under Cooper I think you can make out the backing fabric. It's The Graduate Dream Big by Benartex/Kanvas fabrics. The positive & uplifting words were perfect for the newlyweds who received this quilt. Ok, I'll stop overgramming this quilt now! #sorrynotsorry 😂#husbandsholdingquilts #catsonquilts #pixelatedheartquilt #daysailfabric #bonnieandcamille #modafabrics #showmethemoda #quiltsofinstagram #mainecoon #mainecooncat #mainecoonsofinstagram #benartex #kanvasfabric #benartexfabrics

Thought I'd post another pic of my #pixelatedheartquilt since there won't be any more finishes this year! I love this outdoor garden bench photo. What you can't see are all the people staring at me wondering why I keep fussing with this thing 😂 #whatisshedoing 🙄 #daysailfabric #bonnieandcamille #pepperedcotton #pixelatedheart #robertkaufman #aurifilthread #modafabrics #showmethemoda #blueelephantstitches #daysailquilt #quiltsofinstagram #pepperedcottons #quilting #juki #jukilove

Block 10 'Diamond in the Sky' of Leah Day's machine quilting block party! A combo of walking foot & free motion quilting made this block super fun to quilt! Did I just say fun? Yep! My stress level with FMQ has really dropped since starting this BOM! Thx Leah!! 💕. @leahdayquilting #blockpartyquilt #sunshinequilt #machinequiltingparty #machinequiltingblockparty2016 #juki #jukilove

My grandma made this ceramic tree & it was always part of our Christmas decorations for as long as I can remember. My mom is 86 & in memory care now so this little tree lives on with me & hubby. May you all have sweet memories to share this holiday season. Merry Christmas & Happy Hanukkah!! 💕🎄💕#christmasmemories #vintageceramictree #vintageceramicchristmastree #ceramicchristmastree

Wedding gift for a couple who loves sailing! What better fabric than #daysailfabric by #bonnieandcamille ⛵️ The happy couple bought their first sailboat one week later! ❤️ Special thanks to Jessica @jessicaquilter for her guidance with the Charcoal #pepperedcotton I used for the background. This is the free #pixelatedheart pattern on #robertkaufman website.

Someone special had a milestone birthday today! I thought a "NanMade" birthday card was in order to show my love. 💙 He really flipped out over my #mexicanstarquilt so I used those batik scraps to make this card. Easy tutorial by Mique @30daysblog made this card so fun to create! Thx Mique! 💕 He totally loved the card & I think it eased the pain of this big Birthday. Mission accomplished! 💙💚💙 🎈🎉🎁🎂🍷 #birthdaycard #birthdaycandles #handmadecards #handmadebirthdaycard #loveofmylife #makehimfeelspecial #heisspecial

Early morning Fun Factoids! But first, this is Cooper. The floor to the right is my kitchen floor. Ok, here we go! Did you know: 1. If Cooper throws up on the kitchen floor, you will Not see it. 2. Cooper will Not tell you where it is or even that he threw up. 3. There is 100% chance that you Will step in it. Barefooted. 4. Cooper will Not help you clean it up but he will bunny kick the crap outta that roll of paper towels. 5. You will be wondering all day if there is any more puke & exactly When you will step in it. And finally, 6. The same vinegar water solution used to clean the floor works really well on your bare puke soaked feet. There you have it. Now about that coffee... #lovemycats #livingwithcats #mainecoon #mainecooncat #cats #mainecooncats #catlover #mainecoonstagram #catsofinstagram #mainecoonlovers #ineedanewfloor
