Nailed It! - another man quilt finish

Nailed It!

This is my most. favourite. make. EVER

Currently.....


This is Nailed It! another quilt geared to guys and all boy - or tomboy - as the case may be. *wink* 

I was mighty tempted to make this quilt using a rainbow line up of hammers. But resisted...




And I am so glad I did because I love these true to life colours of this quilt and the prints I chose just seem to tickle my fancy in just the right way. I want to keep this quilt a while.....







I found this measuring tape fabric in my stash from way back when this whole quilting journey had begun. This piece was from back in the prewash days of my stash additions. But it must have been waiting for just the right occasion to be used, And I just added a strip of Architextures.











Lovin' the pencils and their fabrics the best. Makes me happy!!!! 






The "Nailed It!" quilt finished at 44" x 55"
and was the 7th use of my 3rd edition of 100 labels
ordered from Ikaprint.

Let's Bee Social #252

 Welcome to the Let's Bee Social!

Christmas is coming. And the Sew Fresh Quilts shop has been a busy place.

There is a new elf in house. Austin has been helping me with some photography and today's post is featuring photos taken by him. You can find Austin on Instagram here.


Austin is the eldest son of my man Chad.

In all the six years since I started this blog in December of 2012, I have not shared a lot about my personal life. Mainly because this is a quilting blog. So I blog about quilting. And also because this blog is my happy place and I want all my visitors to be happy. That is another reason I did not talk much about my personal life. I was not happy.



I am now.

I am having SEW much fun!

Scottie Dog - a free quilt pattern!

The Scottie Dog free pdf pattern is my way of thanking all of my friends, old and new, for joining me and following me on my quilting journey. This past year has been of epic proportions for me, both as a quilter and as a person just trying to live the life. I could not have made it without you! And I truly appreciate your continued support and encouragement!





This quilt was begun in my old life. The top was completed. And now that I am back in the quilting saddle again since my move to a new home, this Scottie Dog quilt is finished!

 


There are so many options of how to make these little dogs. I went with a scrappy look. And wanted one of my dogs to be wearing a bow. 




It had been quite some time since I used a flanged binding, but this quilt just felt like it need that little extra zing. You can find my complete list of Binding Tutorials here







Last year at Quilt Market in Houston, I met Becky while I was there and she asked me to be a guest designer for December at International Association of Quilters.  What is the IAQ????

What other quilts did I make using this sweet Daisy Days (by Keera Job for Riley Blake) fabric fat quarter bundle?

The bundle was first cut into to make the the Smitten Kitten last October.




Then I made the Scottie Dogs which was the last thing I worked on before moving.


The fabrics for the Hedgehog spikes were made with some of the remaining scraps.







The "Scottie Dog" quilt finished at 38" x 50"
and was the 6th use of my 3rd edition of 100 labels
ordered from Ikaprint.





You can find the finished quilt listed for sale here in my Etsy Shop.
