A Teepee for Grayson

My husband determined our 16 month old needed a teepee for his room. I wasn’t so sure, but he was persistent. I had to wonder, who was the teepee actually for, my son or husband? If you’ve looked at teepees for a child’s room, you’ll notice they can cost $100 – $200 dollars. That’s well … More A Teepee for Grayson

I am thrilled to unveil the finished quilt top for the Bella Skill Builder quilt-along! I’ve immensely enjoyed putting this quilt together block by block.

Lazy Angles

Finally!! This is the last block on the Bella Skill Builder quilt along. Block Number 9 is called Lazy Angles. After completing 8 other blocks, I’d finally reached the last one! I was pretty upset to find out that the last block required a special ruler and no template was provided for those who didn’t … More Lazy Angles

Starburst Block

Block Number 8 of the Bella Skill Builder quilt along was this beautiful Starburst Block. I love this Block because it incorporates all the colors of the quilt into one block. Construction on this one wasn’t bad. I used the template provided because I didn’t have the special ruler they used. Although I am not … More Starburst Block

I’ve worked with half square triangles before, so I was very comfortable sewing this block. I used the “create 8 at a time” method for HST and … More Half Square Triangles and Quarter Square Triangles

Flying Geese

Block number 4 of the Bella Skill Builder Quilt Along was Flying Geese. The blocks went together faster than any other block so far. It’s nice to get an easy win sometimes. I didn’t use the directions from the Skill Builder, opting instead to use this tutorial because you don’t need any special rulers. I really had intentions to … More Flying Geese

Last Saturday, my husband and son went to visit his family so I had some quiet time for sewing. I skipped around a bit on the Bella Skill Builder blocks, and finished block number 6 Courthouse Steps. I am really happy with the color combinations on these blocks. Like all the other blocks in this quilt along, … More Courthouse Steps

Lost at Sea Quilt

I’ve been working on a cute half-square triangle crib quilt using nautical fabrics from Riley Blake’s “By the Sea” line. I quilted this project using a walking foot on my home sewing machine. It was the first time I’ve experimented with a walking foot, and I really enjoyed the experience. To stick with the sea … More Lost at Sea Quilt
