Quilting Humor, More Arcadia, and Flutterby Quilt

A few new additions today!
The ever fashionable zigzag Flutterby (Tula Pink for Moda) baby quilt with appliqued ladybugs...
This is a variation on the quilt I did a while back posted here.
Another Arcadia (Sanae for Moda) table topper with assymetric squares in squares.
Straight line quilting - I'm really starting to like this quilting method more and more.
I love how stitching in the ditch defines the blocks.

A little conversation while browsing through the 500+ quilting blogs I follow...

me: What do you think of this one?
husband: It looks pixelated.
me: It's a quilt, moron!

And of course, they are in the shop as usual.

Nine Patch Arcadia Baby Quilt

Took me a week to get this posted.
I blame the weather (raining all last week), the trip to Dallas this weekend, and the cute little thing I chase around that makes me tired.
This one was so fun to make.
Arcadia by Sanae for Moda
Each square finishes at 1.5" x 1.5"
Quilt finishes at 41" x 41"
And check out the scrappy binding! Love!
And it is in the shop.

The logic pattern

I was flipping through a craft magazine that was STUFFED to overflowing with Christmas crafts. By the end of it, I was humming Christmas songs and driving my husband crazy.
So I immediately had to make something Christmas-ish.
Voila - table runner from Harmony by Jan Patek for Moda.
I had lots of fun with the quilting too - (see the shop for more pics.)
Then it occurred to me I was skipping some holidays - Halloween's in 2 months!

So logically (don't laugh, there really was so logic here)
I made this appliqued pumpkins table runner (Pumpkins Gone Wild by Sandy Gervais for Moda) and LOVE the applique!
And LOGICALLY, I needed to make some coasters...

Now they are all in the shop and at least there's a reason behind the randomness of my sewing... now for fall/thanksgiving stuff!
