OH! I am in L*O*V*E!!!!!

With my new sewing machine that is!!
I have been sewing QUILTS!!!
I made this baby quilt using a honey bun, and following the tute from Fat Quarter Shop's, Jolly Jabber! The quilt is part of the "shortcut quilts series" and is called Jelly Roll Jam!
I have also been working on a quilt called Peony Garden. It is actually meant to be a 30's quilt, but I am doing it in modern brights! I am SO excited about this one!!
 It is a design by Nancy Mahoney from a book called Applique Quilt Revival.

I have NEVER had that buttonhole stitch on a sewing machine before! I know a lot of you seasoned quilters have been there and done that, but I have literally PINED for this stitch for years! so now I can finally make this quilt!!! Yay!!
And just for fun, I found a little sewie tute on how to make one of those cute little triangle thread catchers, so I whipped one of those up too! They are perfect for taking to my Quilt Bee when I am sewing with friends!
So I am enjoying my new sewie relationship!
My Quilt Guild is having a show this September, maybe I'll actually have something to contribute this time!!
