Stuff I've Made: Bookshelf Quilt

This was the final quilt I made for the 2017 holiday season! There was another half square triangle quilt I'm skipping over, but I didn't get great photos of it before sending it off. Next time I'm at my parent's house, I'll try and grab a few shots. I didn't share what I have over on Instagram so go check out @themorosebee to see it. Anyways! The bookshelf quilt. I'd been planning to make this quilt since last spring, but I saved it for the last one. I made it all over the course of a week and, it was such...

Stuff I've Made: Pokeball Quilt

I've been sharing photos of all the Christmas quilts I made on Instagram, but I still enjoy the process of sharing more in depth on ye olde blogge. Looking back, it seems so crazy that I made so many this year! This one was the second quilt (out of 5) that I made as gifts for people lately. This time around it was an 8-Bit Pokeball Quilt for my nephew. I knew I wanted to make a Pokemon something-or-other and when I found the 8-bit pokeball image I knew it was good place to start. ​Making this quilt went SO...

About a year ago, I was graciously given an entire car full of a friend's grandmother's quilting supplies.

A few family members took a few things like the nicer machines and I was given everything that was left. It filled my car from floor to ceiling everywhere except the drivers seat. It took several weeks to go through everything. There were patterns and partially finished blocks and lots of scraps and quilting catalogues from the 90s and so much other...

Things I've Made: The Rainbow Quilt

Merry Christmas Eve Eve! Now that most of my gifts have arrived at their destinations, it's safe to start sharing more and more of what I made this year. My rainbow chevron quilt for my niece was absolutely my favorite! I saw this photo on Pinterest from Cluck Cluck Sew which was the original inspiration for this quilt. My niece is a super vibrant, funny person so a bright, happy quilt only seemed appropriate. Cluck Cluck Sew happens to be the same source of inspiration as my last quilt which is totally random since I just found them both on Pinterest! Her quilts are...

What I Received & What I Sent: Bee Creative Stocking Swap

I received my Stocking Swap items the day before Thanksgiving so I was pretty excited to have them in time to decorate my apartment for Christmas! Now that Thanksgiving is over, I can *finally* bust out all the Christmas and Hanukkah stuff. In addition to my stockings, my partner also included a shirt for Ari, an ornament, Mr & Mrs Claus mittens, santa socks, sewing pins, and some extra Christmas themed fabric! Everything was awesome! In the stockings my partner used some of my favorite colors and even managed to find a way to incorporate a little Hanukkah spirit as my...
