Some finishes and a work in progress:

A whimsical baby quilt made with Amy Schimler's On a Whim Collection.  It was fun to free motion stitch around the flower, bird, and butterfly shapes.  If there were more time, I would fill in with some smaller motifs, but this quilt is scheduled to be gifted next weekend.

 I also finished a baby cap, and have a second one on the needles.
I included a beautiful orchid just for fun!
When I find a good pattern, I like to make it several times.  

(In case you are wondering, these photo collages were made with Mosaic Maker.  It is a great tool for displaying your photos.  An added bonus  -  it's free!)

What have you been working on this week?

I have linked up with Matariki CraftingFabric Tuesday, Sew Much Ado, and Freshly Pieced, and Adorned from Above.


  1. That baby cap is adorable! I love the fabric line you used for your quilt. It's so cheerful and happy!

  2. visiting from WIP Wednesday. I love what you are making. Great quilt and the hat is so cute

  3. Adorable quilt and I love that sweet baby cap!

  4. Good luck on finishing up the quilt. Super cute cap, so sweet.

    Stopping by from the WIP hop :)

  6. That fabric is great! And your detail in the quilting really sets it off. Love it!

  7. The baby cap is so adorable. Great work.

  8. Beautiful - this is actually the Fly Away collection - those birds I blogged about came out about five years ago and are hard to find. In fact the only On A Whim still floating around are the owls. But I do have lots of birds in many of my collections that I did with Kaufman!! I LOVE all the detailing you did around the various elements. What a generous gift!!! Just lovely.

  9. Love the baby hat. Thanks so much for sharing with Adorned From Above's Blog Hop. The party will be back this week starting Tuesday and 8:00PM mountain time. We can't wait to see what you have to share this week.
    Have a great week.
