He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young

Baby Bean Needs a Blanket

Sweet Pea number three is well on her way. Oh yeah... did I mention it's a "her"? I'd love to share the pictures of our little beauty however she was just plain shy and hid everything but her face during our 20 week ultrasound. {She's has some sturdy lookin' ribs and an adorable little behind, that's for sure!}
None the less, she's coming in just a few months and I'm finally starting to think about what to make her. If you remember, I made Miss Mak's quilt less than a year ago and I LOVE how it came out. Now I'm ready for another but I don't want just any quilt. 

The Problem: Many MANY quilt patterns are country looking and very structured. I most definitely prefer modern takes on vintage patterns.
The Solution: I stumbled onto Film in the Fridge today... now THIS is what I'm talking about!Ashley not only has pure sewing and quilting talent, she has beautiful taste in fabrics... I'm coveting big time, right now.

I'm particularly fond of her Starburst Quilt
and her Flea Market Fancy Quilt
and... her Wonky String Quilt 
ahhh!!! and her Spotted Squares Quilt
aaaand this... which I can't find a name for but love it all the same... 

Okay... I'm seriously so excited and inspired by these quilts that my hands are shaking! It's a good thing it's snowy out there because JoAnn's would be a very dangerous place for me to be right now!
Now... which to make?! 


  1. Don't know if you're taking votes but I love the last two and they look like your style. And come on, when has snow ever kept you from JoAnn's! HA! I bet you're on your way there right now!! : )

  2. Ha! I wish. I failed to mention that budget is an issue too so I'll have to wait a few weeks before I start this project. Because the bottom two are what I would usually do, I'm actually leaning towards the Wonky String thing time around. We'll see!

  3. I like the last one too! 2nd choice though would be the Flee Market Fancy Quilt. Lots of bright colors.

  4. Love the starburst or spotted squares! :)


I always love a good comment.
