InstaSewing Snapshots : :

This makes me happy! Time to sew!! #butterfly #quilt #pureelements #rainbow

My sweet Penny girl! #penelopedaily #morkielove

I'm not finished, it's not perfect, but it sure is pretty! #butterfly #colorblock #quilt #annamariahorner #pureelements & #valoriewells

My ginormous Indie quilt is back home & is beautifully quilted by Sew Shabby Quilting! And, a new stack of pretties just arrived from Beth @stashfabrics Amazing mail day!!!

sometimes it seems impossible to believe that some ideas and all their separate parts just happen to come together by chance, so perfectly. #sketchstitch #feathers

There's so much handmade goodness happening here, and I love it!! #handmade #love #kaidenlove

Throughout this week I've been sharing little peeks on my Instagram of what I've been working on -- new fabric stashing from Stash Modern Fabric for my next Applique Art Quilt, the Butterfly Quilt I'm making for my niece Molly, and my newest quilt finish -- my Indie Symmetry Quilt! I had made this quilt top almost exactly a year ago today and sent it right off to my super talented friend Pat Bravo to use in her photos and video for her Indie Collection. That was such a dream come true collaboration for me! Indie is one of, if not my most favorite fabric collection. I sent it off to Melissa at Sew Shabby Quilting just a couple of weeks ago to work her magic, and now my Indie quilt is home, bound, and is on our bed!!

Attempting to take pics of my Indie quilt today!! I'm so in love with it! #patbravo #indie #quilt @patbravodesign @artgalleryfabrics @sewshabbyquilting

I plan to share a full Indie Quilt post with all the details, just as soon as I can, I promise! For the rest of the week and weekend it's going to be a little quiet here, besides my Fabric Friday Giveaway (it's a BIG one!), while I soak up these last several days of Summer vacation with my family! I can't believe school starts back up here on Tuesday!

Wishing you all a lovely stretch of days!!   Maureen

  1. Seriously want to crawl in there! Your little one looks so comfy tucked up under all the lovely prints. Love all the pillows and the quilt is just fab. Very fun to have your work seen in so many places, but I think it would be hard to mail that away! Do you have a post somewhere about that pillow with the kind of strips of fabric that are hanging a bit? I haven't made pillow covers yet, but thinking I need to start!

    1. I had planned to do a tutorial for this pillow, and maybe I still will! I had made and shared it last July and it's still one of my favorite pillows ever!! Here's the link to that post for inspiration -- http://maureencracknellhandmade.blogspot.com/2012/07/a-pillow-and-break.html

  13. Can't wait to see your tutorial, the idea of big pieces for a queen is very appealing to me. I'm busy working through quilts for my 4 kids, 2 1/2 done so far and then I want one all for me. Your blog is lovely to read, so inspiring thank your for sharing :)
