Anchors Away and Fabric Tuesday...

Anchors Away

I think it is pretty obvious Megan and I are IN LOVE with this Out to Sea line. Pure cuteness! We are even fighting over each others scraps! Pathetic, we know (as we bow our heads in shame)

Anyhow, I reworked my MOD TWEET pattern with the anchor in the middle. LOVE.


Plus, I threw this together SUPER fast! Faster than I had planned (which never ever happens with quilting, right?)


I LOVE the quilting I did. Super fast and sweet. I did bubbles (or pebble) quilting around the anchor. Then I just did super fast waves across the quilt. I am so happy with how it looks, and it was SO fast!


Here is the back. Don't love how the bubbles look on the navy print, should have planned my layout better. But who cares right?


The quilt will go to this sweet little man for Christmas. Don't you just want to eat his cheeks through the computer? (Or possibly that is just a mom thing?)  :)
I have had a hard time not giving it to him yet. 


Hope you like. Megan and I are gearing up for a hibernation over fall up to Christmas. We are both trying to get patterns out of the way, and even Christmas gifts done super soon. (wish up luck on the Christmas gifts, I will never be sewing at 1:30am Christmas morning EVER again!)



If you love the pattern, you can purchase it here.

What did you create this week?

I think the back looks awesome! The bubble quilting really gives it an "oceany" feel.

Give him the quilt now. We never know how much time we have with our kids. Two families we know have lost their children (one due to an extended illness and another to the flu) and it has really made me rethink my relationship and time I have with my own children. Our youngest son's b-day is Saturday, but he got his gift (came in the mail last week) the day it came!

I'd rather share the joy with him now, then perhaps never have the chance to see him so happy again. Sorry to be morbid, but watching someone you love lose their child makes an impact on your thoughts!

Thanks for hosting!

Love this quilt! I know the trouble with holding back giving something you made. I can't help it, I give everyone what I make for them as soon as it is done even if it is for later.

Love your quilting - such fun!

I hear you on sewing at 1:30 a.m. Christmas morning. Been there. Avoiding it like the plague this year!
