Hey, girl,

I can always tell the difference between you Echino quilts. And they are all to die for.*

So, yes, another Echino quilt. That, of course, I am madly in love with.


Every single print in this quilt is just perfect!

The way it folds ...

The way it drapes ...

Just perfect!

One tiny detail, though. Can you focus a little on the pink square with the car?

Echino quilt
The right lower corner? See that? That's the side mirror from the car below. Could one guess how many times I thought that's a thread and tried to pick it up? It's ok, I can tell you: a loooot of times!

*of course you must know what I'm talking about.

I'm the Grinch

Well, I said it. I am so not in the mood for Christmas, or anything related. But I did sew. A lot. So here are some of this month's stuff.

The one that I couldn't get a decent photo of, and the one that started the pink madness in my house :)


The crosses came out very quickly, the 5" squares helped a lot. Also, like never before :)), I actually decided what to use before starting cutting, so every cross is made from 3 pieces [2 squares and one rectangle]. Pieceing was so easy!


Not sure I love it with the gray border so much, I think the next one will have no border at all. [next quilt with crosses]

Then the princess baby quilt, made at the same time with baby blue and baby smile.

I tried to get out of the pink obsession with some all-time-favorite Echino, but right after it was finished, along with some custom quilts, I kept thinking about the pink.

So I made the scrappy one.


So soft and thin [backed it with some no name thin and soft fabric], it's one of my favorites and the first one to leave.

But no, this was not enough :)). Again, I put all the larger scraps left with some gray, and made another pinkish one :)

Somewhere along the way I also made three sweet pillows but only made pictures of two of them. A heavily quilted wonky star,

and two of them with the sweetest mini charm pack ever :)

I wanted so much to see for myself Aneela's fabrics but funding really stopped me from getting anything larger. It was just perfect!


But, incredible as it may seem :)), I got over the pink phase. Oh, yeah! Well, kind of :))


Pink and green is different, right? :)))

Almost alive

I am still here, working my butt off, still upset with my camera and still quilting like there's no tomorrow :)).
The [making/ fixing/uploading on flickr/ adding to pools/ copying to blogger] pics thing is, however, so not fun anymore. Considering it works together with [updating my babywearing site, FB page, romanian blog], is taking pretty much all the time I have. And making the computer no fun at all.

So, while I'm here, I should show you something, right?

How about my new obsession for small stuff?

I made a.lot! of pouches. Again :)).

Some FFA III sweetest horses ever

and pretty much every Echino I have.
[Showing only one Echino was a very difficult decision. This one is the smallest. Here are some of the others]



Now back to fixing quilt pics :|
