Just in Time!

New baby on the way – as I type!  And, my little baby quilt is finished just in time!


I used Kate & Birdie’s Storybook fabric, easy peasy charm squares.  I pieced all of my half square triangles, sewed the top half, and took a break.  In the meantime, Joe decided to use his super duper Maxextractor carpet steamer.  So, he picked up the rows of my quilt, and put them over my chairs, and then cleaned the carpet.  Something went awry when I put them back down – oh well – now it’s a modern baby quilt – not quite centered –



The baby will never know.  Anyway, it’s ready to be gifted once Baby Ramos makes his/her appearance.

And, being an oh-so-productive week, I am still current with my pocket scrapping project.

Yep, more spreads to show you –

plspreadmar30apr5leftThis is a combination of my new Azure core kit, that I got on HSN when it was on sale with the photo overlays, page dividers and a 12 x 12 paper pack and a mixture of Studio Calico stuff.  On this siide, I have the Studio Calico “Not My Day” vellum overlay over the title card, since we were both pretty much sick all week.  You can’t tell from the photo, but “Clean House,” is with the cork alpha’s that came in the SC  Bluegrass Farm kit.  Since I used the two “e’s” that came with the alpha sheet, and the one “a” I’m now pretty much done with that alpha – which is why I would never buy that kind of mini alpha myself, but it’s nice to get it in a kit. At least I did manage to spell one card at least.  I cut the “Feed the Birds” with my Silhouette, the word art bubble over Lemon was also cut from some digital kit with the Portrait also.

Right –


On this page, the wood veneer Hello Sunshine is from Studio Calico, I think last month’s kit. The bicycle is Amy Tangerine, I don’t remember from where.  The HIm & Her card is also SC, and the SICK alpha letters are the last of last month’s alpha.  The “eek” badge came in Bluegrass Farm, as did the bits of washi tape.  The Everyday Card I think is SC, but I’m not sure.

Also, on both pages, there are black clear stickers from Me and My Big Ideas – I LOVE these, and they were out of them when I went to Michael’s with my super coupon the other day.  Drat!  Hopefully, they’ll restock them.

And now double birthday week, so I needed to add an insert –

Yeah, I finally got to use up some more of my first month of Studio Calico – I have very little of that kit left, and that makes me happy.  The title card, the birthday cake, and the Love This card are all from my first sub. kit – I think Sugar Rush.  The numbered card is from a pack of We R Memory keeper cards I got for $2 at Target.  The “Yummy” badge is from Bluegrass Farm, and again, those black vellum stickers – from MAMBI.

The back of the insert is the thank you card I got from my niece for her birthday present, and our Captain America tickets.

Let’s see – there’s a Becky Higgins photo overlay on the photo with Lemon and I.  Next row – SC sample card from Lemon Lush that came with Sugar Rush, the wood Veneer from Office Hours, a wooden arrow from Sugar Rush, the card is from my Target bargain.  And, at the bottom, the “my everything” vellum thingy slipped – I’m not sure how to attach it.  I think that’s from SC Blue Note kit, which I got for $10 when I signed up for their class Stitched.  The labels I think were from Just Jaimee, but I can’t remember.  I usually take my Portrait out once a week, cut lots of stuff, and then throw everything into a box – so I’m not the best creditor when it comes to bits and bobs.

And, finally, Passover is in the books –



Passover was a challenge – the only Passover elements I could find on line were these digital stamps, so I made my own cards with some of Lynne-Marie’s backgrounds.  I paired this with my new core kit, Midnight, that I snagged with my Michael’s 50% off coupon, and I think it turned out ok.

How about that hand – uch!  That’s what she doesn’t when I try to take a photo of her and she knows I’m taking it – or she makes a goofy face, like the photo above.  With a bit of begging, she’ll pose – there’s actually a posed version of the goofy shot, but I ended up liking the goofy one better – it’s more her.

So, that’s it – today I’ll do Easter with the Ramos’s and wait for word on the new baby!

Happy Holidays!

    Congratulations! Your baby quilt is so beautiful. The not-quite-centered look seems perfectly acceptable to me – it definitely comes across as though it could have been intentional and VERY modern. I know your little one will love it!!!
