Wedding Quilt – Completion

March 12, 2011

Hey Everyone,

I know I’ve been a bit slow at completing this quilt, and I’m sure Melissa feels even more impatient about it.  But, I am proud to say that this past weekend – I completed the wedding guestbook quilt.  And it looks great.

Because of the special meaning and lifetime of this quilt, I wanted to be sure it was designed just as special.  I tried a few new things and tried to make it feel modern and fun.

I’ve never:

– Quilted through my solid spacer fabric with a contrasting color before… But it looks great.

– Created a NOT Solid backing.  I was worried about it being straight and square, and I was right.  At the very edge it veers off a bit… But really, I think it made the back awesome.

– Created my own binding! Again… LOVE. I learned from that process as well and corners are my enemy.

I’m glad its done… Not just to get if off of my to-do list, but so Melissa and Andrew can finally enjoy the memory of their wedding and my special gift!

Love you Guys!



Happy Birthday Big Sister!

March 10, 2011

My big sister turns 29 today and of course I made her a Hello Kitty cake!  Duh!  hehe.

This isn’t much of a baking post because I was feeling lazy and used a yellow box mix and a can of white icing.  I also used a baking pan in the shape of Hello Kitty’s face.

This is what I came out with:


Happy Birthday sister!
