Wednesday challenge!

So the results are in :) I had hoped to get all the scraps cut down but that didn't happen. But sometimes it is a good reminder that this is a hobby and I quilt because I love to!  This is what I did do!
 And these are the scraps still waiting to get cut :). To be fair I did get a lot cut. I had two bags and extra when I started
And this smile makes it all worth it. Little man is going to preschool in a month,  he needed a quilt and a pillowcase and minions are his favorite :)
Pattern moda bakeshop (modified) and fabric one in a minion.

Progress? Yes!
I have been slowly cutting away and although it might not seem like less I actually managed to fit all my small scraps that have not been sorted into one plastic bag yay! My trusty helper felt like I needed to cut some more however and helped me get some out ;)
So here is an easier way to see my accomplishments so far! Here are my scrappy tumblers last week I had one row
 And theses are my 1.5" projects estimated time of completion 2032 lol
So back to the cutting mat! And the organizing!

Time to tidy up!

Since I had my adorable baby girl I haven't really had time (three kids will do that I suppose ) Either way the scraps have been piling up. Unsorted and un cut! Well Jo issued a challange to finish something up, and I accepted!  My goal is to cut as much as I can up into tumblers and 2" squares.. and some 1.5" too!
 That way I can tackle my projects!
 And organize my closet
 With the assistance of my supervisor :)
 Wish us luck!

mystery quilt!

This year I decided to make the mystery quilt again :). It is a fun project and when made in pieces it seems more manageable and less likely to become a wip (work in progress) and then be left in the sewing closet forever lol. I changed the colors so did a lot of other quilters. Mainly because this quilt is a chance to clear the stash.
Here is the link to all the beautiful quilts that have been made from Bonnie Hunter's beautiful pattern

And here is my quilt :). It is going in our baby girls room, which is currently the guest room (she is due in 10 days yay)

I have a backing for the quilt as well... but a certain dog (my father in laws) decided to mark it as his with pee! (Good thing he is cute)
I hope that I can save the backing by washing it gently and hang dry
Wish me luck :)

It has been a while since I blogged. The reason is simple ( no I did not hibernate, although it sounds great lol) I had waaayy too much on my plate. It began when I realized that in order to get into nursing school I would have to take 2 classes in the spring, well the semester had started so my only option was two 8 week hybrid classes that met at night! Let me tell you it was intense, but it is over and done with and I have one week off till summer class starts.

During this time I worked on a very fun and special project! I am partaking in a Round Robin quilt! yay it is so much fun! My friend Sandy's quilt had landed on my doorstep. I usually do not work with batiks so it was a fun change for me I added the outer border of vines to it :)

Also my mom visited over easter. We had a great time, but as always time went by too fast! Here are some pictures of the bellamy mansion! So pretty

Some quilting up in here!

So apparently it rains a lot in NC, I am making up for 9 years worth of living in Ca I suppose!
Anyways I am trying to make the best of it, today I even let my kids go out and get soaking wet in their pajamas. ( my neighbors probably think that I am crazy)
On the quilting front I have been making some charity blocks for quilts of valor

 Charity blocks for quilts of valor :) it is awesome to be able to contribute!
 James took a picture of me basting his quilt! Yepp I am doing this one all by myself yikees!

The last picture is my progress on my scrappy trips ( a free pattern from Bonnie Hunter)
