spit up in style

Our little one that is coming is going to spit up in style. His mommy just can't stop sewing. My latest project has been burp cloths - so many cute fabrics in my stash, and so little time to turn them into quilts. Guess these will have to do!

sulky blendables - note to self

Note to self: I love the colors in the Sulky Blendables thread, but am not having fun stippling with it. I now remember this from using it before - the thread breaks every 12" or so, even with setting the tension right and using a top stitch needle. Very frustrating and to me: Do Not Buy This Thread Again! Use King Tut instead!

eat. play. sleep. repeat.

I found the tutorial for this baby quilt here, and just can't seem to stop thinking of fabrics to make another ... and another ... and another. It's so simple and cute and easy to make. Here's the front: And the back (love those little doggy fabrics):
And it hanging in the baby room:
(Can you believe the walls here used to be painters tape blue?! My poor patient husband - it took 3 coats of paint to cover that wild color with this butter yellow.)
A side note: Does anyone know how to download more of these letters to use in quilting? I'm not too tech savvy, but would love to know how to find more letters and/or different font to use in applique.
