Quilting, Sewing and More!

Things have been so busy with the move, lots of birthdays, projects due and more! On February 13th, Madisyn will be baptized and I have had her fabrics for her special quilt picked out for months...and a plan of what I wanted to do. I wanted to do a fun quilt with lots of circles cut out of her fun fabrics on a neutral pattern and with me just trying to come up with the pattern on my own...I kept getting stressed out. So, I found a simple pattern that I liked and spent the entire day yesterday...cutting and sewing!
I have loved the look of the Coin Quilts for awhile and I've heard that it is really easy and quick to do...so I thought it was perfect. A few quick links:

Coin Quilt Pattern via Moda Bake Shop
Inspiration on Flickr
Information on Squaring up your Fabrics via the Purl Bee (I needed a good tutorial on this)

I used fabrics from Heather Bailey's Freshcut Line (which I always loved but never used), some Amy Butler favs, some corduroy and some other fun pieces thrown in.

The cutting took me all morning and then I started to lay out the 5 patchwork lines for the quilt. Then, the sewing began. I finished up all the 'lines' this morning at 9:30 a.m. Super fast for me! So, now I am cutting the sashing for the middle and the border and will get it all sewn together.

I hope that she will love this quilt. I was going to do something much more simpler and 'rougher', but in the end, I want it to be something she can really have forever...possibly pass on to her own little girl someday.
On a side note, my projects are up at Studio Calico using the February Kit. You can check them out here. There is also a fun challenge on their blog this week using one of my layouts as the sketch - check it out and play along!

I'm off to watch LOST! So excited that it is back...so sad that it's the last season. Bachelor...anyone watching? I always call it from the first night (or at least to the last 2 standing) and I totally think Tenley is awesome! We'll see! :) Have a great night!
