this week, in photos

I got it quilted! (and I forgot how tiring free motion quilting can be!) I was obsessed with getting it done, though now it’s just sitting while I contemplate my binding options. Still haven’t come up with a definite plan yet.

Some happy mail, including this lovely stack of Ruby by Bonnie and Camille. I’m in love with the scallop prints – that gray might be my new favorite!

Along with that, I also received the wool I was waiting for so I could start my Tova dress. I bought this lightweight wool suiting from, mainly based on the color and price. (I wanted to test it out before going with a more expensive option!) I need to pick up some fun colored tights this weekend…

I pulled out a couple old quilt blocks (those that never made it into a quilt!) and turned them into a couple bibs for Max. I used the bib pattern from Lotta Jansdotter’s Simple Sewing for Baby, though I enlarged it just a bit.

And Max, well, he was being pretty cute admiring himself in the mirror. Now that I upgraded my phone, it’s so easy to capture it, both on camera and on video! So, in case you’d like to see a quick little video of Max with his mirror, I’ve posted it below –

Happy weekend everyone!

    OK Max is so darn cute! I have a picture of my daughter at that age kissing herself in the mirror. I love it!
    You quilt looks beautiful (as always)! I really love the little strips of solid fabric in the squares. And using the extra blocks for bibs is pretty genius. I may be using that idea soon for my younger daughter 🙂

    Such a cute video of Max! It brought tears to my eyes as my guys are 23 and 20 and all of the moments are precious. Enjoy all of them and don’t “wish” them to grow up faster. Love the quilt also by the way.

    Seriously cute! The stage where they sit (but do not move yet) is so much fun! Actually – each stage is so much fun – but I really loved that one!
