I am officially on vacation...we are everyday at the beach swimming, drinking coffee...
The strange thing is that everyday I wake up at 6.30 in the morning, and because everybody is sleeping, I am relaxed enough, to work on my swoon.
It is my first attempt to make a swoon quilt, and oh boy!!... it is a huge quilt! I have no idea how the f...k am I going to quilt this thing in my small little Pfaff...I am seriously thinking of sending it to professional (But I have to find someone in Europe...if anybody knows please message me!!!)

It was time to finish some other "UFO's" that were hanging around for a really long time, and being on vacations, really helps.

I finished my superheroes "portraits", that I absolutely adore, and also the Stark family in all its past glory!

Linking to Amanda, over at Crazy Mom Quilts, for a super Finish-It-Up-Friday!
I've finished this baby quilt a couple of weeks ago, but never got the time to take a picture!! I am just in love with the binding of this adorable baby quilt, it gave a whole new perspective to the whole quilt!!! Don' t you agree?
Pinwheel quilt

Materials

I have used two print charm packs for the cuttie: 1. Cape Ann from Moda fabrics and 2. Hoo's in the forest by Riley Blake. And I also used two solid charm packs from Kona. The background is Sage from Kona cotton and the backing is also from Riley Blake. The binding is a fabric I bought from Amsterdam and was really afraid of using it...such foolness...it looks amazing!

Process

I quilted the whole quilt around the pinwheel squares in a straight line. And for the first time I tried machine binding (I always hand - bind my quilts) and it was heaven on earth...simply amazingly fast and very clean-cut...

Christening Favors for Anna
Finally I made a listing in my Etsy Shop for these cute little houses, for anyone who would like to have a unique handmade favor for your baby's baptism. They require a lot of work including some hand sewing, so please if you would like to make an order do it in advance so that there is enough time for me to make them.

It is a really joy for me to contribute to such a great event to your loved baby's life!

Custom orders are also welcome, we could combine our imagination forces and make something extraordinary!
