Busy Little Bumble Bee...

Pretty quiet on the sewing front around here... I only managed to finish the "Stellar" quilt. I adore it so so much. I do think it's my all time bestest quilt I've ever made! For those that don't know, Lizzy House is my all time favorite designer. I think Constellations is my favorite line yet, but I do say that after every new Lizzy release! (Have you seen CatNap yet?? Those mice)! Anyway, on to the show:

I made a paper-pieced star block on the top right, and placed a heart inside. I felt red binding would work well with the red heart, and I'm very glad I decided to do so- It looks perfect! In my opinion anyway :)

I also threw in some yellow to balance things out a bit.

This quilt was very much inspired by a song that I LOVE entitled Stellar by Daddy's Groove (bad word warning). The lyrics are just simple yet mean so much. 

It's been pretty busy in my neck of the woods lately. We are headed to Oregon in 2 weeks!! I've packed, moved stuff out, had a garage sale, looked for a new place, seeking renters for our current place, and still made a little bit of time to sew! WHEW- I'm pretty pooped, but there is still a ton to do. I'm going to miss California, but my family and I are elated to start a new chapter of our lives in good 'ol Portland! It's going to be so awesome- I can feel it!!

This past weekend was my last San Diego Modern Quilt Guild meeting. These girlies are amaze-balls! I was super stoked to find a Modern Quilt Guild in my area and connect with others who shared my same interests/hobbies! They will surely be missed!!

Off I go... thanks for visiting. :)

Today is Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway day!!!

I'm so excited to snoop around blogland! It's a great way to see some great talent, new blogs and get totally inspired- not to mention you could be a win some great goodies being offered!

Up for grabs are two Comma Charm Packs by Zen Chic. Simply leave a comment advising your favorite charm pack pattern! I'll pick a winner on Friday 5/10/13.

I have a new quilt to share!! A friend at work asked me to make a baby quilt for one of her friends, so I jumped at opportunity to use these 16 patches that I made a few weeks ago. The pattern comes from the Liberty Love book by Alexia Abegg. I totally love this book- and need to jump back into working on my Marcelle Medallion quilt!

 I used up some of my favorite fabrics for the 16 patches, and added this sweet print from Aneela Hoey's Posy line. I think it makes a perfect quilt for a new baby girl- wouldn't you say?

I'll be back Friday to post a winner- thanks for stopping by!
