With extra triangles from her quilt, Lis made this bunting with ribbon and hot glue. It'll look pretty charming in her apartment.

Half Square Triangles

I'm helping my friend Elisabeth make her very first quilt, and I think that it is going to be absolutely gorgeous.

Wedding Quilt

My friend Anna is getting married next summer, and that means that I'm making her and Morgan a wedding quilt. With my levels of procrastination, I need to start working on it *now.* I have the first step out of the way- picking colors, fabrics, and a pattern. They'll be receiving a queen sized Take 5 quilt in browns, blues and yellows.

Take 5

In January, I finally experienced the joy of finishing my first quilt. I used to Take 5 pattern- you are supposed to choose *5* fabrics that you like, and have a nice, orderly quilt. I broke the rules. I kept finding more and more fabrics that I liked, so finally I decided, "Heck with being orderly! I'm using all of these!"

I used a striped homespun for the binding, cutting it on the bias, to make it diagonal.
I rather like it!

Foxy Valentine

Inspired by this valentine, and driven by my love of foxes, I set out to make my own version.'s not quite as cute. Thankfully, I don't think the recipient will be picky.
