I'm addicted to quilting + a giveaway

*This giveaway is now closed.*

So just like I used to think sewing was something I thought I could never do- Quilting was on the list of "things I could never do" as well.

Well... I proved myself wrong and made a quilt!
{I'm totally turning into my Grandma! ha ha Love ya Grams!}


 Oh My Crafts sent me some Riley Blake Stackers and I decided that I could do it... So I got to quilting. 


For this quilt I used 3 of the Riley Blake Happy Skies Stackers (each bundle has 22- 5x5 inch pieces so I used 64 of the 66 pieces for this quilt)


Oh My Crafts only carries pre-cut fabric bundles so I wasn't able to get the fabric for the backing and or the binding from there, but their prices on pre-cuts are super great!


They also sent me 2 of the Riley Blake Dainty Blossoms Stacker Bundles so I decided to make a dolly quilt for my little gals to use for their dollies.


I decided to cut of the 5x5 inch squares into triangles and tried my hand at making a zig zag quilt. I loved it! It was so fun that I have decided to do a chevron/zig zag lap sized quilt this summer and I am going to be doing step by step instructions for anyone that wants to sew along with me! There will be a weekly post for one month that will have everything you need to know to complete the quilt and sew along with me. Stay tuned for more details!!

I machine quilted by sewing along the zig-zags and  I love how the zig zag looks on the backside- on the minky part!!
{Not sure why my camera was acting weird and made this fabric look grayish- it is really bright green}


Oh My Crafts is a super awesome site that has just about every crafting tool, supply, etc you need for all of your crafting ventures! I could not believe just how much they sell! It's great!

And... now for the fun part! Oh My Crafts is giving one lucky Mommy by day Crafter by night reader a $25 gift certificate to their shop!

  62. Great job on the quilt. My frist quilt was a full-size blue jean quilt for my sister. It took me 2 years to finish and the jean material was hard to sew.
