MCM #76 – What’s Your Quilty Crush?

Welcome everyone! I hope you had a great weekend and are ready to march into the week – I know I am.

The princess birthday party was a big success. Snow White was there, along with several other princesses. My tiara was taken out of storage, and I got to wear it the entire day. Baby Jenny and I spent a lot of time together and we had so much fun!

My crush for this week is Jenny’s wallhanging I finished last week. You can read about it in this post. And, just in case you missed it here’s a picture of it. 🙂

I have lots to do this week to keep moving forward in my sewing room. My To Do list looks like this:

  • Teach a make-up class to a couple beginner quilting students on Tuesday
  • Attend guild meeting on Wednesday
  • Make more progress on quilting my m-I-l’s quilt. I know I keep calling it a beast, but it is! It’s so big and of course I had to decide to do all custom quilting (insert rolling eyes emoji here) so it’s taking me much longer than I anticipated. I need to get it finished and off the frame because I have customer quilts that are waiting their turn.
  • Cut fabric for the Cookie Cutter pattern and piece the top. This will be a store sample and has a deadline attached to it so this one might have me stitching late into the night.

That’s my list, what does yours look like?

Before we move on, I have a public service announcement. 🙂 WordPress has updated again and now comments are not being forwarded to my email. I try hard to respond to every comment  (except during a giveaway), so this is a frustration for me. I apologize in advance if I miss a comment or two; please understand I appreciate the time you take to write and I’ll be working hard to make sure I see and respond to every one.

Now, before we get to this weeks MCM, let’s take a closer look at a few of last week’s link-ups. There were so many good ones!

First up – Liz of Savor Every Stitch. Did you see the Avant Garde quilt she finished? I like how the design really shows off the fabrics, and it looks so good on her bed. Liz is the proud owner of a new longarm and she got to use it on this finish. It looks great!

Karen of Tu-na Quilts is catching up on her bee blocks. She made this star block with a fussy cut coneflower center. I tried to grow coneflowers once. I was a successful for a couple of years and then the flowers died. This block reminded me that I need to try again!

The quilting on this piece by DonnaleeQ took a lot of time, but was worth every minute! I really like the details – be sure to check it out.

Now it’s your turn to link up your crush! Remember, you can link anything that has you excited to be in your sewing space – a blog post, Instagram or Flickr pic. Here’s how:

About Beth

I’m a wife, mother of two, and lover of all things crafty. I love to cook up new things in the kitchen and in my craft room, and sometimes get “licking the spoon” mixed up with “licking the fabric”!!

  4. OOH!!! Both princesses are beautiful and so is the the star princess’s quilt!! You did a FABULOUS job Beth (yup I missed it, so thanks for showing us the eye candy again!) I have a larger quilt on the frame right now (Cows) that is needing me to get going on it because I have one other for sure that needs to be done asap and hopefully a third… I cannot wait to see what you do on the MIL quilt!

  8. I am sorry to hear that you are not getting comments by email right now. I hope you can get that resolved quickly; what a frustration! Have a lovely week.

    I have the same problem with my blog I use wordpress too – that happened last year for awhile I was getting none of my comments to my email then all of a sudden it started to work and now it is doing it again for the past 4 days or so no comments to my email – I didn’t even think about the last update!

    I love the Tiara Beth and I think you should be joining the Honey Pot Bee with it. I also have a busy week but it’s mostly full of meetings.

  12. Love the tiara! Looks like a very fun day for the birthday girl. Good luck with your goals this week. Some weeks are just more challenging than others.

    Thank you for featuring my Avant Garde quilt! I was definitely not expecting that 🙂 Glad to hear the birthday party was a blast! Cookie Cutter is on my make list too, but I keep delaying it due to fear of those little diamonds. Maybe after I see yours, I’d be motivated to make mine.

  14. Oh, my! Thank you for featuring my coneflower double star block that now belongs to Cathy. It was a hard one to send away. But I do have more fabric set aside for a quilt like this one for me. I’ve tried to grow coneflowers too but can’t get them to germinate which is really unusual since they supposedly grow naturally around here. Thanks again.
