Levi Quilts

I’ll be honest I wasn’t looking forward to making these two quilts because it was just putting blocks together; but it turned out to be more fun than I thought. 

This first one is all out of the same material.  Nothing too exciting…



But for this second one I got to be more creative!!! I didn’t have enough of the main material that the client had given me so I had to use some of the scrap pieces that she had also provided for me to use.  The problem was that the other material was not quite the same color so it looked a little off.  So I decided to see if I had enough for a checkered pattern and sure enough I did.  The other problem I ran into was that the other fabric was pretty close in color that the checkered pattern didn’t  show up as well as I would’ve liked.  That’s when I decided to turn the one fabric around so that the wrong side would be showing up.  It made for a great contrast and was a lot of fun to see it come together.

Gone too long…

We had a vacation all last month.  We took a road trip from our home in Utah to Orlando, Florida!!!  It was a lot of fun.  We decided to split the trip into 5 nights and 6 days.  We traveled on average 400 miles each day and each night we stayed at campgrounds (mostly KOA’s).  With three kids ages 6,4,and 20 months I was a little worried how they would do come day 3 of traveling.  But thanks to the wonderful technology of dual screen portable DVD players it went over much better than I could’ve expected.

Anyways I’ve been on a much longer vacation from blogging.  I don’t know what it is but I have a hard time getting any blog posts done.  Not just on my crafting one but also on our family one.  My problem is probably because I spend most of my spare time designing or creating something new! 

Right now nap time has consisted of trying to boost my sewing business by making hair/hat bows and trying to strategize the best way to market my sewing classes.  Marketing is definitely an area I struggle with.    So here is my marketing plug for today….

Come check out my cute new flower hair clips at my Sew Frenzy Shop
