Here's a blank blog post on a blank blog with our blank minds. Or so it feels :)
And since we can't leave you with an invisible picture:
Here's our latest quilt. It's the triplet to these twinner quilts with a pink polka dottie backing. We can practically make this quilt in our sleep since we've made it 4 times already!

Just wanted to fill you in on some things that have been happening 'round here. 5 things to be exact. Okay, so maybe there are 6 things...BIG DEAL! We all knew the twins over at quackadoodlequilt were never good counters ;) But the sixth item is really just an afterthought, so we should be good.
#1: A baby boy quilt is in order, yes?? The fun part is trying to figure out what pattern to make. Or is that the hard part? :)
#2: All (four) of the quilts in our shop can be purchased for 20% off when you use the coupon code FUN2SEW upon purchase. Yippee! Sewing is always fun :)
#3: We've discovered that we have plenty of quilts. Crazy, right? So a trip to the hills for some stargazing and cookie-and-popcorn-eating was planned on the fly.
#4: We are putting these mason jar mugs to good use this summer. When it is hot outside, smoothies hit the spot every time.
#5: We've been dying to show you a glimpse of the swirly machine quilting we are doing on our Swoon quilt.
Sidenote: Please excuse all of the strings in this picture.
#6: We have a quilt top tutorial to show you this next week. Thanks for listening to the update!

It’s always an adventure to make a scrap quilt around here. Usually because it takes some imagination (yeah, that’s what we’ll call it) to create a masterpiece…our scrap basket is looking a little sparse. But this quilt surprised us and turned out almost exactly how we pictured it.
We wanted to make a baby girl quilt with a vintage feel and a whole lotta scraps and low volume prints. We cut the squares to charm square size: 5 inches. This quilt would look perfect hanging out on the line, don’t ya think?
The backing is an unbleached muslin and works well with the small-scale prints on the front. For the machine quilting we had to resort to Plan B. Plan A was to machine quilting straight lines along the whole entire quilt. Yeah, we like Plan B much more than Plan A too:
head on over to our Etsy shop and purchase it yourself :)
