in order

My sweet husband really likes his holidays "in order" so I waited to post this quilt, although I made it two weeks ago. I am still in love with the "New Wave" pattern from Oh,Fransson and plan to use it again. I couldn't decide on just 12 prints, so I did 14 and I love the extra length it gives it. Again I used the walking foot and did straight line quilting, it looks so nice!

Since my sewing machine is out for a while, I am now getting around to taking pictures of what I have been busy sewing this month. I am surprised at how much I made!
I made this quilt a couple weeks back, it is made from Moda Bliss two charm packs and came together really fast. I had it done in less than two days. Moo helped with the layout or it might have gone even faster :) I used a walking foot for the first time on this quilt, and boy does that make a difference!

 I think I will be making more of these quilts just because they can be made so fast with not much time into fabric choices.

My sewing machine took an accidental tumble off my table on Saturday. It's pretty bad, and to make it worse, we are snowed in at home and can't even take it to the repair shop in Idaho Falls. Once the roads open, and I can make it out there - hopefully the end of the week - it will take 7-10 days to get parts, another 7 to fix and then I have to make another trip out to pick it up. So... guess I'll be knitting Christmas gifts!

{sewing day}

Today has been incredibly productive! I needed a day like this! I made a huge batch of  ribbon blankets and have gotten started on a Christmas quilt, hopefully done before the craft fair this weekend.

Linden Park Craft Fair

I have been super busy this past week sewing up inventory for the Linden Park Craft Fair yesterday in Idaho Falls. It doesn't look like much inventory, but I feel like I have done nothing but sew for days! 
My favorite creation of the week was the quilt, made from 2 charm packs & quilted with my mom's walking foot. Man, I need one of those!
Audrey and I are doing another craft fair this upcoming weekend in Driggs, and I obviously need to work on the display before then! Lots more sewing to do...
