Sharing a project that has finally reached its recipient. I loved putting together this baby quilt (b&w with a touch of gold). It was fun to add in fabric his mom had given me years earlier and to find out how special the tiger backing is to the family. #stitchingmemories #quiltsofinstagram #blackandwhite

Our Mother's Day tradition is to go for a weenie roast. Upper Cameron River rapids was how far we ventured this year. #getoutside #river

I had an ugly earbud case. Now I have an awesome earbud case. #putapatchonit #kindawonky #bison

The tiniest little doodle from Sunday. A flag for my personal island? #colourplay #improvpiecing

Saturday's thrifting haul. Lots of texture including a fantastic nep blue at the top. And the salmon/coral keeps on coming. #thriftedfabric

I found this mini while tidying and thought it would be good to share here for the first time. Made in 2012 with handdyed scraps from Kim Eichler-Messmer @kimemquilts, it is still one of my favourites. #handdyed #quiltsofinstagram

The spring melt is in full swing and I can't wait to see the mosses and lichens again (nevermind this is a fall pic). #imlichenit #northernplants

This one is also challenging to photograph. 'Rooms' is not quite square, but about 11.5", made of thrifted fabrics and is machine quilted. The connections to the #curatedquilts prompts aren't quite as obvious in this one, but I am tempted to throw it into the mix anyway... #quiltsofinstagram #thriftedfabric

Detail of 'Coral blocks' #curatedquilts #quiltsofinstagram #stitching

It's done, a submission for the Curated Quilts mini challenge. 'Coral blocks' is just under 10" square. The coral tones are challenging to show accurately (darn iPhone and its auto contrast). Thrifted fabrics, cotton and metallic thread, a touch of hand embroidery. #curatedquilts #quiltsofinstagram

Getting serious and blocking these pieces (mostly to get rid of the evidence of unpicked stitches) πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™€οΈ#quiltsofinstagram #coral #salmon #allpink

Part of today's thrifting haul. The corals keep coming! Also, a yellow tunic and a gorgeous cotton/linen shirt with a homespun feel #thriftedfabric

I finished the facing during a coffee break. It still needs a title, some blocking and a press, but the stitching's done. #thriftedfabric #quiltsofinstagram #miniquilt

Thursday night play. If I can summon some quilting inspiration it might end up as a #curatedquilts submission...#thriftedfabric

This little unnamed mini is done! My first finish using my new machine. I used silver thread to quilt the corners (you can barely see the shine) and had no issues with tension or shredding 😍#thriftedfabric #handdyed #miniquilt #quiltsofinstagram

Facing on this one too. I love this thrifted Indonesian batik as a backing. #quiltsofinstagram #thriftedfabric

I found this crazy smock at a consignment shop in Savannah. I half believed I would keep it to wear at home (it *just* fits) but I am actually more likely to transform it into something else, when the right idea comes along. But until then, it lives in my closet, safe from my scissors βœ‚οΈ . @christinericks_ what do you think? #thrifting #neon #crazyvegetables #nothingissafe
