Blogger's Quilt Festival: Cosmos

The past couple weeks I have been exhausted with unpacking and getting our new place habitable, and I have been super sad that I have been neglecting blogland. so I figured, what better way to get back into the swing of things than with an entry into this spring's Blogger's Quilt Festival.

For my entry in the large quilts category, I have chosen my darling Cosmos Marcelle Medallion. I absolutely adore this quilt, but I think William might use it more than I do. (he's cute so he can get away with it)

 It's his go to nap time quilt :)

These windblown pictures are great because you can really see the detail of the spiral quilting. I quilted it on my own little machine, and I am so glad I did. The spiral was just what this quilt needed.

The bulk of this quilt was made with Lizzy House Constellations fabric line + some Tula Pink + a bunch of low volume from my stash. I love the monochromatic blues and grays because I feel like it lets the piecing shine through without getting jumbled in super scrappiness.

Moving Day!!

Well the day is finally here!! We got our house keys on Thursday, and today we are finally moving all our stuff to the new place!

So I've been up since 7am stuffing the remainder of our things in to boxes and suitcases....
....kinda like this.

I can't wait to be all situated at our new place. Especially since I get a sewing room all for myself; we don't have to talk about how it's also supposed to be the guest room :)

Is is bad that I'm probably going to unpack that room first?
