Recent Project finishes… AND I’m Moving?!?!

Recent Project finishes… AND I’m Moving?!?!

Thank you so much for sharing!

Hi there everyone!

I have a new video up today showing you some recent projects that I have finished as well as a personal update.  I recently finished my daughter’s twin size quilt… yay!  I have taken some nice photos and I am working on a nice blog post for that which should be ready in a few days!  I also share in the video the quilt that I started in my quilting vlog video.  The hexagon shaped one?  Did you see that?  Well, I recently got it back from my long arm friend Stephanie who did a great job!  I am putting the binding on and I am preparing a pattern for sale for that quilt.  I’ll let you know when that is available!


Here’s a little sneak peek of the quilting Stephanie did.

So the other thing that I mentioned is that I am moving!  Well… I’m moving in ;).  My dad and step mom have been so generous and allowed us to live with them for the past year and a half.  We moved in when we were transitioning out of active duty military and coming back to SoCal after being in the military for 7 years.  My husband has been at USC getting his Master’s degree and working on the side and I have been building my business, homeschooling and taking care of the kids and we are so thankful they allowed us to get a little settled while living with them!  And now they have bought their dream house near the coast!  We are so excited for them, and they are gonna let us stay here!  So we are going to move all of our stuff out of storage and get settled in this house – I will get to have my own studio/sewing room!  Eeek!

You can watch the video to see the quilts and hear more about this, but be patient with me while I attempt to get us organized in the next few days ;).

Hi Melanie! I was wondering if you had the pattern for the hexagon quilt up some where? I'm really interested in the pattern as well as where you got the fabric from. Please let me know soon! I would love to make this quilt for my bed :)

Im interested in all of the things you mentioned. I'm one of those try anything people and am currently crocheting while thinking about what I like in quilting and trying that craft. Enjoy your videos and DIY ideas. Keep them coming.

Hey Melanie,

since a few weeks I watch you videos regularly. I'm from Germany and I'm a knitter (since I was ten). But I used to sew when it was necessary. Just shortening trousers or a pillowcase, nothing fancy. I like you videos besause they are easy to follow and to understand. Thanks for that.

Congratilations, by the way ... an yes! A quilting series would be awesome!

Best wishes from old Germany,
