    Some new projects I've finished

    Here are photos of a few new projects I've finished over the last few weeks! These are my second, third, and fourth quilts, so I think I am now officially obsessed. My husband is also officially worried about the odds that I will spend a small fortune on this hobby.

    The first (and my favorite!!) is a housewarming quilt for my friend Nina, who just bought a new house. She LOVES bright colors, especially orange, so hopefully this fits the bill. It's the orange soda pop pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop Shape Workshop for Quilters book, which I fell in love with the second I saw it! I used grey on the back to make it a little calmer than the crazy front. This is the first project I've made that's bigger than a baby quilt - definitely a lot for my little $99 sewing machine to handle!! Hopefully a newer fancier machine will be coming my way this Christmas

    I also made a quick little table runner using the scraps from my first quilt (My first quilt). It's currently living on our coffee table.

    Last but not least, I also made a baby quilt for friends of ours who are expecting their first, a boy named Nate, any day now. I used the same embroidered animals that I used on my first quilt - I'm much happier with how this one turned out! I used Michael Miller's backyard baby fabrics - they are so freaking cute! I got them on sale at fabric.com for a steal

    You did a great job and they all look wonderful. Tell Hubby that yes the odds are high (in fact he can bet on it) that you will spend a small fortune on this hobby! I always tell mine that it keeps me out of the bars, off the streets and can't be any more expensive than therapy

    Great quilts! I think you have caught the quilting bug and I predict a long affliction/addiction.

    Very pretty quilt's. You can tell your DH that he is right it will be an expensive hobby, but it will make you very happy. And what is it they say about a happy wife makes a happy life.
