Mermaid Quilt- my challenge quilt

I participated in a challenge my mother-in-law had for fun. Many of you know she owns a Happy Sewing Room - a quilt shop and she had a booth at Hershey quilt show. She though it will be fun to have a challenge between the people that help her at the booth. The prize is that the winner get to pick next years fabric. 

 <--- This is the challenge fabric(the green bubbles). As soon as I saw it I thought of making ocean sean with fishes and  bubbles from the challenge fabric. When I started working on the quilt I came up with the mermaid.

I love all the embellishments I did. Like the green neckless and the little belt. There are some blue stones on the rocks in the sand as well.

Here are the other quilts: 
My Mother-in-law made this cute Owl quilt!

My father-in-law made coasters. He wasn't very inspired by the fabric. 

Here is the winner this year. Trish made this stars quilt and the black really made them pop. 

Everybody did a great job! I had a lot of fun creating my quilt and everybody was close, but Trish won.  Congratulations Trish!

Strawberry Shortcake Quilt

Just a quick post to let you, my readers, that I am still here. Let me tell you, I am just HOT, from being 8 month pregnant and running after 17 month old busy little girl! :) 

I wanted to share this cute little quilt I made for her. I will post some picture of the quilted quilt later. I quilted for first time  with bubble fleece. It went pretty smooth. 

Until next time,

Happy sewing everyone and stay cool! :)

Basket of Flowers is My Challenge Quilt

I am a big fan of Edyta Sitar from "Laundry basket quilts" ever since I saw her first book at a quilt shop in Indiana. I don't buy books very easily, but I had to have "Hop to it" that had a bunny aplique in it. 

I saw she had a challenge on her blog using her new designs fabric silhouettes. They are laser cut ready to use fusible aplique shapes. I sign up for the challenge and the due date was today. As usual life happens and I had so many ideas how to use them. I took a class in Hershey and had the basket and the pink 3d flower started, so I added the flowers. I am happy how it turn out! I can finish the quilt a lot faster now! :)

Happy sewing!

P.S. Thank you everybody for the wishes for the new baby! We are very excited for our new addition!

We Are Blessed!

I am happy to announce that we are expecting another child. 

Drum roll please ......

 We are truly blessed with another baby girl!

Veronica will be big sister! We got Veronica a little baby doll today that cries and she has to give her a pacifier, she is very gentle with the doll.  She loves to play with other kids and I think she will love her little sister! I can't wait to meet my baby! 

Have a great weekend everyone!

Orange Candy Table Runner

I made an Orange flavor Candy table runner, yummy! :) And it's calorie free!

it's another version of my original  pattern "Candy Table Runner". I used our (me and my husband's) favorite colors: orange and green. I also made wider borders and that gave me the space to quilt one of my favorite designs of tulips, flowers and butterflies.

You can get the ebook(PDF) pattern on my blog, just click Buy Now link on the right sidebar.

Here is the original candy table runner:

I have so many ideas and projects I want to work on. DO you have that trouble as well? Only if the house work didn't get on the way of my sewing! :)

Stay tuned for BIG announcement coming soon.... :)

Some old and some new finishes....

This is my "Blue and Yellow quilt" that I finished last year! I love the blue and yellow batiks and traditional cotton fabric that I mixed. I have been enjoying it on our bed.

Here is the detail of the quilting. This was a very difficult panto to do by hand. And of course because the quilting was showing so well, I had troubles with my machine.

I recently finished this "Glorious Fall" quilt. It was easy to put it together, I used some precut squares and added some of my stash! You can find the pattern at "Happy sewing room".

Happy sewing till next time!
