Sprocket Spunky!

I finally got around to making my sprocket pillows from this awesome site!
Something about the circle appeals to me in the way color wheels do....hmm there's an idea....maybe I should make a ROY G BIV version!
She was the inspiration for the quilt I just recently finished too. These pillows are pretty easy. The edge is sorta tricky (at least for my amatuer sewing skills) but I was pretty happy with it. I think I will make more.

The backside. I might have to do a double sided sprocket with multiple fabrics on both sides! So much fun!

Latest Project

I finally finished my most recent project. Jeremy jokes (okay maybe he's serious), that I start all sorts of projects and never finish them. Well on top of all the house projects that I (and he) have completed this year because of putting it on the market, I also finished my first quilt.

I used a simple stripe for the backside.
I found a blog that I love! She has the most beautiful combos of fabrics and lots of fun ideas. They aren't even all quilts so check it out even if you don't want to quilt.
But anyways, this is her tutorial that I used for this quilt. It was not difficult but very time consuming.

I love the way it already looks worn in with the raw edges on the circles!

I learned how to stipple or free-motion quilt on my machine....not the easiest thing in the world.

Somoa even likes it! Just kidding, I totally staged this picture. I like to use my quilts but I am not letting her lay on this one.
I put a vintage filter on this photo and I love how fun the quilt looks in the tree.
