See You In September Blog Hop - Day 9

Welcome to Day 9 of See you In September blog hop. First I wanted to thank the master mind behind these wonderful blog hops, Madm Samm and our amazing cheerleader Shari for all the encouragement throughout the Summer :).

Boy! The Summer just flew away. I had only done one major quilt in the summer but managed to cook up 3 projects to show you today.

First up is "Rainbow Skirt" using RBD small gingham. My daughter loves rainbow and she choose these color order. I used 2.5" strips to make this skirt and all together 3 Jelly Rolls.


Here is the skirt I made:

I have been wanting to sew with knit fabrics for quite some time. I wouldn't say I have mastered it yet. But its at a good point. You can really see the details but I added 2 front pockets and one back pockets too. This is a first for me. Never sewn a pant before.

Knit Toddler Pants
Knit Toddler Pants - Front pockets(I hope you can see it ;) )

Knit Toddler Pants - Back pockets(I hope you can see it ;) )
I am planning to sew a pant with cotton fabric soon. I think I got the hang of it ;).

Last but not least is the cute baby blanket I made for a Customer at my Etsy shop. This is one of my favorite collection from Riley Blake Designs - Hoo's in the Forest . I have been hoarding this fabric for quite sometime now.


My other summer/fall projects which were already published for Riley Blake Designs Cutting corners college:
Splendor Garden quilt Tutorial
Evergreen Quilted Pillow Sham Tutorial
 Thank you for stopping by and checking out my projects.
Here is the rest of the schedule for today. Go say hi to the other hoppers today :) .
Happy Quilting!

I'm back - A tutorial for Riley Blake Designs

I hope its true. I am back to sewing after a very long time. This summer has been really busy with kids and my little shop :). Even though I didn't get to sew much, cutting fabrics for the shop was fun.

Is it too early for Christmas, I just couldn't resist this adorable fabric collection by Riley Blake Designs. And  here is a link to my tutorial to make a cute Evergree Quilted Pillow Sham with Ruffles :). Yes, I used my Ruffler foot for the first time and it was lot of fun. More ruffles in the future ;).

Evergreen Quilted Pillow Sham
As you might have guessed this has been claimed by my daughter and she wants me to make one more. I got to quilt on my home machine after a very long time. I broke 2 needles in 1 hour :(. But the quilting itself was lot of fun.

This is a tad bigger for my pillow form.

Pillow Back is cuter than the front ;)
I hope this was a good eye candy.
Happy Quilting!

Weekend Sewing Marathon - A new tutorial for Riley Blake Designs

Hello Everyone, sorry for the long break from sewing/quilting project updates. I am back with my sojo( sewing mojo).
I have been literally sewing non-stop since Friday night. Here is the outcome:
RBD Splendor Fabric Collection by Lila Tueller

Splendor Garden Quilt - 80/90 x 77 inches
 A free tutorial available on Riley Blake Designs Cutting Corners College website, click here.

Even though I got hardly any sleep over the weekend, it feels refreshing to get sew much sewing done ;). I think I sewed more hours this last week compared to the sewing I did in last 6 months. I hope I am coming out of the non-sewing rut I have been for quite sometime now.
More closeup pictures:

Pieced Flower block - Block#2

Pieced Kites - My favorites

This is the second largest quilt I ever made, almost a queen 80/90 x 77 inches. I am planning to quilt this on the long arm. But I have never rented longarm for more than 3 hours at a time. This one is looking like 6 to 10 hours of quilting unless I really simplify the quilting. I hate to take the quilt off the frame and reload again for more quilting. Hmmmm.....decisions decisions...decisions!

Linking up to Lee's Freshly Pieced blog and Lorna's Let's Bee Social.



Happy Quilting!
