Quilting Weekend with MommaBird

This weekend was awesome because MommaBird came up to visit. First, we went fabric shopping at Traditional Pastimes! Mom bought some adorable fabric for the baby quilts she is making (no rumors now, it's not for me!) and a couple fat 1/8 bundles. I bought a bundle of long quarters of this bright Rhinestone fabrics. We hit the farmer's market, went out for dinner at Diner Deluxe (the pulled pork sandwich is amazing) and made the expensive mistake of stepping foot into Lululemon. :) And obviously, we quilted! I worked on some random stuff I had laying around and mom worked on this super cute balloon baby quilt. I was also puppy sitting so we had a little quilting helper named Demo.

Happy 2012!

Well, it's a brand new year and I can't believe 2012 is here already. I also can't believe my last post was in October! I feel kind of bad for not posting anything but to be honest, I burnt myself out with the bicycle quilt. I took two months off from sewing and I definitely needed it. After all the food, chocolates, champagne, wine, naps and relaxing over the holidays, I am finally ready to get back into it.

 I am *this close* to finishing the quilting on my friend's housewarming gift and should have more photos soon. Tonight, I just finished this  super quick and fun pain in the ass flower block. It had 49 appliqued berries! It wasn't too challenging just time consuming. I just have two more blocks to go, and I will be able to put mom & dad's quilt together. :)
