I know I've been missing for a while. We went away over Easter and then had a birthday party.

I started on a lap quilt for my (now!!!) 5 year old


I also made a shark cake for the birthday boy. He wanted one a bit more gruesome but he was happy with what he got.


So many cute, amazing and inspiring projects. I need to get off my butt and start making, not just reading abiut all of you lovely people.

That octopus is awesome! Squishy toys are the best. And then it has more toys inside!

Oh I love pom poms. They were they best thing to make when I was a kid.

I realised I only put one fabric combo with the puppies.


I like the fact the stripe brings in the pink. But I like the two kinds of spots too. Decisions.

That idea of not submitting order is a genius destashing idea AIMR!

I am in the mood to pick quilt fabrics since my fabric is sorted but unfortunately my sewing table is not. So the quilt sewing may take some time. Haha.

Thus is what I picked for my niece who will be 5 this year.


I have also put this together for my youngest, not sure about the spots, but wanted some other pattern besides the frog fabric.


And I have put this together for my oldest son. He's not adverse to a little pink so I thought the stripe might be cool, but does it look weird with the spots and would the other spots look better?


I am trying to fight the urge to go and see if they have the exact same blues/greens/pinks at the fabric store and pick all from stash.

I have decided to see what I have in stash to make my niece a quilt. This is what I have some up with so far. The large pink piece is flannelette.

5  Fabric choices for girl's quilt in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by mellybelly81 on: February 10, 2018 04:17:57 AM
Hi! It's been awhile since I've quilted and I am trying to put together some colours for a quilt for my niece. I haven't settled on a pattern yet, but it will be a lap quilt, no more than 5' square.

Here are the fabrics I have grabbed from my stash. They are all cotton, but the big pink piece is flannelette. I haven't unfolded it, but I think it will be big enough for the backing.


How do they look together?

oh all these cool crafts make me wish I had a proper crafting space instead of a pokey little table behind the couch.

Love the baby crafts, I haven't made anything for my bub yet but I figure since the gender is a surprise, I don't particularly need any more neutral stuff.

Here's my birth dress. Try to ignore all the mess in the background, my husband doesn't think of hiding this stuff in photos.

and finally the quilt I was trying to finish for the WIP challenge in January... I just made it before the end of Feb!

The Dr Seuss quilt for my cousin's little boy that has been in the making for over a year (originally supposed to be for his first bday and he turned two a month ago). It's about 40" square.





Both my cousin and his wife are Dr Seuss fans, so I know they will be "educating" their son in the ways of Dr Seuss too!

we took an extra couple of days onto the Australia Day long weekend last weekend and I came back monday to 20 pages to catch up on! Waaaay too many projects to comment on, but all so awesome and I love the variety of crafts I get to see by being a part of this craftalong! You are all so inspiring, i want to make so many of the projects i've seen here.

I finished some last minute belated Christmas gifts (in the car!) for the family members we were travelling to see last weekend.


taggy fabric cube for 7m old nephew


two sets of barbie skirts for 4 and 6y old nieces (sorry uploading from my phone and a PIA to turn)


ironman mask for 8y old nephew

I'm trying to finish a WIP quilt for my cousin's little boy next.
