Christmas gift quilts

Friday, January 5, 2018

This year, I've gifted 5 quilts (7 counting two quilts gifted for last Christmas). I quilted one for my mom-in-law who literally keeps our house running, and another backed in soft minky for my sister-in-law who lives in Colorado Springs (minky seems pretty fitting with their cold winters!). I've just hit a point where I love creating + quilting, but we don't use all of the quilts I make, so it's much more fun to branch out into fabric choices that I know family will love and gift to them.

Disclaimer: I had zero intention of ever making this quilt, until Haley made hers for a quilt-along using V&Co ombre. Austen saw me quilting it and he said I should make one like that. I played around in my stash a bit trying to come up with an idea of what I could make it in and I realized I had a double FQB of Cotton + Steel basics. 

It took me about 5 months to start and finish it, but I am so so glad I did this quilt. It's huge, bold, and unlike anything else I've made. I love it dearly. 

favorite holiday quilts

What better season for quilts than when it's cold outside? Not that Texas really gets cold... but I will say that quilts in our Utah ski condo with the wood burning stove during blizzards were the ultimate best. I love all of our quilts, but our holiday quilts have a special place in my heart. Maybe it's because winter is my favorite, and maybe it's because I'm always cold so the minky + flannel + brushed cotton backings are totally justified.

Even holiday quilts that come just for me to quilt are always so fun! I thought I would round up a few ideas in case anyone is looking for some inspiration.

marbleizing pumpkins

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

For my day off on Columbus Day, my sister came over with the idea of marbleizing pumpkins using nail polish (thanks pinterest). Soph could hardly contain her excitement, and was slightly ticked that we didn't let her put the nail polish in the water herself. We did let her choose her own colors and her pumpkins came out cuter than ours did! Not sure if we should classify this as a total pinterest fail, but you win some, you lose some. 

Ya'll, holidays with littles will always be better than without.
