Oh Yeah, I'm Feelin' It.

Well, it's been a while. I needed a break so I had one. It was great, thankyouverymuch. 

I made an apron (Mary Mulari chatterbox pattern) for my cousin Danielle, but unfortunately, I sent it off before taking a picture. So, imagine this apron:

in this duo (Michael Miller's Dinnerware is the fabric pattern). Darn tootin' cute!

Additionally, I finished this quilt top today.(Kate Spain's Verna fabric line & Natalia Bonner of Piece-n-Quilt's I'm Blushing quilt pattern found on Moda Bake Shop)

I made some serious errors on this quilt when I made the squares. I was so irritated with myself that I put it away for a long time, waiting for the day when I would feel up to spending quality time with a seam ripper. 

Well, in the last three months my outlook has really changed: There is no need to ever go back and change something. Move forward, embrace the aberrations, and know that whatever it is, it's supposed to be that way.

So I added strips, made more "errors," and threw in 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 inch seams where it suited the cause. One of the flowers is almost on a diagonal, so I put the centers to the left as if they are leaning towards the sun. ha! 

Mama like. 


  1. I've heard something said often...along the lines of...there are no mistakes, just design details. :)

    Great apron (what's the pattern? I could totally use one like that)....and that quilt....darling.

  2. Nice work...i've been wondering what you were up to;) We miss you at CMQG.......:)

  3. She's BACKKKKK Hello you!

    OK so a second what's the pattern? Love the fabric you used. Only you see the imperfections cause I see Awesome quilt.

  4. Great to have you back giving us your 2 cents.

  5. I think your quilt top looks terrific! I think that no one will notice anything "wrong" with it...I certainly don't!

  6. You make me want to go shopping and I just came home from California with TOO much fabric! Great choices and your blog inspires! Isn't that the best thing it can do? I think so

  7. I don't see the flaws you are talking about. I think that's a great quilt.

  8. Remember, there are no mistakes, only design opportunities! And you can always channel your inner DiscoJen and say 'oh well, it's done'!
    Totally love the quilt, very happy and springy!

  9. Cool aprons!! They are so useful and not too difficult to make...I guess, depending on the pattern you use, but this one is VERY nice!! And...uhmmm something is supposed to be wrong with the quilt? The one on this post, right? The one with the AWESOME flowers, and pretty fabric choices? I don't see it, I must be getting old and need those x4 MILLION magnifying glasses...heehee

  10. I don't know if I ever remember seeing your I'm Blushing quilt! I love it!!! :)


Thoughts become things...choose good ones♥
