Okay, so blogging apparently isn't my strength. I have so many new things I'd like to share but there's a pile of old that really needs to be acknowledged first. So to make this fun (and quick) so that I can attempt to get caught up, I'm going to do a summer/ early fall recap in photos.

ROUND 1: Swaps

This totally awesome doll quilt (for the Misfit Quilters Doll Quilt Swap) is from Heide Mueller-Hatton. True story: I ran around the house, jumping up and down when I opened it! I even packed it to show my friends and family back home in Jersey.

My Misfit Doll Quilt using Moda's Hoopla

The next swap I participated in was the I Heart the 80's: Modern Sewing Swap. This was such a fun swap! All of the projects were excellent. You should really check them out. Of course, I did receive the BEST package!! Really, does it get any better than this?! Look at that Star Wars swag :D Thanks again, Karen!

This is my 80's swap package. I love the cassette fabric and eventually will make myself something fun with the remnants :) P.S. It took considerable willpower not to keep those Smurf buttons ;)

Round 2: Blockhead Quilt

This was my first quilt commission and there were many times where I questioned my sanity. This sucker was huge!! An over-sized queen to be exact. And thanks to its new owner, I have 'action' pics. Thanks, Kim!

Round 3: Cat

Okay, so this isn't exactly a sewing project but I thought it would be a nice way to end this update. On July 4th, I opened the door to let my cats in and this is what I saw:

Meet Bones, the newest Miller. He was a lot smaller but just as cute!

This ends the summer update portion. Next time I will highlight some new projects. Until then, may the force be with you all!


  1. Thanks! And thanks for commenting, you rock ;)

  2. You're alive! Woohoo!!!

    Love the post with all the updates. I really super love the doll quilt you made for the swap, and I LOVE the blockhead quilt.

    Give Mr. Bones a snuggle from me =)

  3. Thanks :) One day I will post a tutorial for the Blockhead... one day. And as soon as that crazy cat stops climbing up the walls (literally), I will give him your snuggle. Haha.

  4. Thanks for sharing your work. Your creativity never ceases to amaze me!
