i know it isn't as exciting as a full size improv quilt with out of print or hand drawn fabric BUT this is what i have been working on the past couple of days. come on, give me a break....i DO have larger quilts in the works and several works in progress....unfortunately most of them are gifts and i may be discovered. i may end up posting them anyway so be warned. easy rag quilts. the first being for my sweet jackson with the star of the quilt posed on top. i backed it with soft minky and satin for his little hands to explore....
and i had to buy him a new bobo (sock monkey)....bobo is his mothers. he is a little loveworn. it is time for him to retire.

one rag quilt for rag quilt requested by a friend for a baby shower. joanns had a ginormous sale on flannel and fleece.
i got into my "sewing for babies" book and very quickly whipped up this cute little snuggly and a warm hat to match. do not be alarmed at the child in the snuggly. it was the best i could do so you would know what the heck it was...

okay.....back to the big quilts...

love, me.


  1. I am beyond in love with Jackson's rag quilt. That is by far the cutest thing I have ever seen!

  2. Cute stuff! I need to learn to make a rag quilt!

    I am so glad I found your blog, and thanks for the kind comments on my zig zag. Good Folks is such an awesome fabric line, and if you have all the prints I recommend combining both colorways. They are great on their own, of course, but I used all my leftovers from the byzantine palette and bought a few of the adriatic to make another quilt and I really love the combined cool/warm contrast. Can't wait to see what you make with yours!


You are all dear to me and every message means so much. I really take these to heart...good and bad, so fire away! I need your input!
