It has been a while… hasn’t it?!?
Life has been busy, very busy!
I have discovered instagram and LOVE IT! Follow me @bigmamaquilts
Here’s what has devoured my sewing time last month:
HexyMF progress — Still working the yellows. I have discovered I really enjoy hand piecing these. I keep them in the car to occupy my time during the carpool line and tae kwon do practice.
Winding Ways — Such a sweet stack… more to come with this one. The lovelies below are mostly from Fort Worth Fabrics Friday bundles, and can be found here . The rest was rounded out from my stash.
Here is a glimpse into how this will come together.
The curves are fairly gentle turns, but the little blade rotary cutter is a definite help! Just in case you missed it…. Iron Man needed a nap
Have a great week! I hope to keep posting on this quilt as it comes together!

I love babies! I love making baby gifts. Some days, time gets away from me. Enter GenerationX Quilters and her fabulous Baby Washcloths. I started with 10″ squares of flannel from my stash and a soft pink minky.
In four hours, I was able to pull fabric, iron fabric, cut fabric, stitch layers of minky to flannel, turn and quilt a heart using freezer paper template. So fast, so easy, and so beautiful!

The Believe.Do Good Stitches January block is a Herring Bone block from Bijou Lovely. She wrote up a fantastic tutorial! The color requests were for yellow, pink, magenta — bright and girly! I think I nailed it… It is BRIGHT!
The Stash Bee Queen request improv log cabins Film in the Fridge style in purples, grays, and reds. I really didn’t think I would be able to pull this out of my stash. I do not have a lot of purples or reds! Low and behold, I found a strip of purple ombre that works so well with the improv block!
Happy Last Day of January. Can anyone else believe Lent is the day BEFORE Valentine’s Day? Do I give up the chocolate and suffer on Valentine’s Day?

Its a first finish for 2013, and I have many more WIPs to finish. My goal for 2013 (other than to lose the 10 lbs of baby weight now that said baby is 2-1/2) is to finish the many WIPs, make a quilt for little Miss Ah-mazing, make a quilt for our bed, and mostly figure out how to get it all done!
The Spin Cycle pattern is from Allison of Cluck, Cluck Sew. I love the pinks and greys. Not too girly, yet still feminie.
I quilted it with wavy lines in one direction about an inch apart. I love how that looks, and with the walking foot and pre-set stitch on my Bernina, it quilted up very quickly!
Jen of Bettycrockerass made a Sappling Quilt that I love! How cute is that?!? I used the same pattern from Oh, Fransson’s pattern for Refrigerator Magnets Quilt Blocks. I paper pieced them by mirroring the image before printing. They sewed up like a dream and I love the way it works into the quilt!
Such a pretty girl! And a great finish to start the new year!
