How Many Times...

can you use a quilt pattern?
This is really just a rhetorical question, like how much fabric is too much? How many shoes are too much? How much chocolate is too much? There's no real answer here.

In 2008 I made this quilt from the tutorial on Crazy Mom Quilts blog. I gave the quilt to one of my dearest friends.

Then I wanted to make a quilt for my husband to take with him surf fishing. So I made this one I called Land and Sea. I changed the sashing measurements on this one.

I thought I was done with the pattern. But I have used it a bunch. 2 I don't have pictures of, they were smaller one my MIL Christmas quilt last year and one was for a baby shower last year.

I'm using it for my Sweet quilt. I wanted to make sure I used a pattern to showcase my absolute favorite fabric ever, the peeps.

It's a great pattern for doing that.

My friend who I gave the first quilt to is expecting and I made a baby quilt for her this past week. Guess what quilt I made?!

Everyone loves this pattern. And since they are gifts I make what they want.

It is a great pattern. I am grateful for the tutorial. Thanks Amanda Jean, I feel like I owe you something!lol!

P.S. friends and family, I can make other kinds of quilts ;p

2 and Not Much New...

I have been pensive lately. Maybe it's the weather or time of year. Not sure. I've been debating whether or not to keep blogging and flickering and etsying. I don't know. And I am not going to be a big bummer so for now I'll show you pics of 2 small quilted goodies I made for a friend of mine.

She saw the birdies I'd been making and said her sisters thing was "love birds" so I said I'd make her one in her "country style". I used homespun, haven't worked with it for a while. I forgot how much I like it.

And as a little surprise I sent her a Christmas table runner. I hope she likes it.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving if you are in the part of the world that celebrates that.
