These Days : :

For the past almost two weeks each day there has been something to celebrate, whether a birthday, a recital, family arriving, or a Christmas tree to decorate, each day is so busy, very full, and completely wonderful! In the midst of all of this I've also been sewing my heart out, every free second I get! Today I plan to finish up and ship out the last of my Christmas orders, and then I have just one quilt left to make to reach my goal of making a quilt to give to each of my kiddos, nieces, and nephews when they are all (but one) here for Christmas!

Most recently I finished up a Princess Castle Quilt for my niece Josie -- here are a few peeks at the fabric I chose and the beginnings of it. Fingers crossed I get some time to take photos later today to share here soon!

Princess Castle Quilt Fabric Pulls

Princess quilt beginnings

I didn't draft a pattern for this quilt yet, but it turned out really cute with flappy shutters and pendant flags at the top of both towers with the same detail. If you have a little princess that you'd like to make a princess castle quilt for, please do let me know?! It won't take much interest to get me to create this fun one again, this time just to share the pattern once things slow down in the New Year!

Before I get back to busy today, here's a fun moment I shared recently with two of my most favorite princesses who made themselves cozy with my Chicopee & Herringbone (tutorial here) quilts! 

Josie & Sylvia :)

Happy Wednesday!    Maureen 


  1. Ahhhh...i searched high and low for a princess quilt pattern for my 3 yr old grand daughter....ended up drafting my own-yours sounds much cuter! But, i am pleased with my results! Anxious to see your completed quilt...grand daughter #2 will need her own castle soon!

    1. Thanks Jill!! I'm exited to share more, I just have to get some good shots! Do you have a photo of your quilt? Feel free to share a link here, I''d love to see it!!

  2. i can't wait to see the finish quilt. my daughter would love a princess quilt. what fabric is the one you used with the princesses on it.

    1. The Once Upon A Time Collection here --

  3. I'm kinda new to the whole quilting thing, but this sounds like a fun project with lots of opportunity for fine details.

  4. Oh, ME TOO!! I have two identical 6 year old princesses that would love their own process quilt. What a wonderful project for the long cold months of winter! Can't wait to see the pictures!!

  5. I love all your details! The orange piping kills me, but I'm pretty partial to piping.

    Would love to get a pattern of this to make one for my little girl!

  6. I would love to see a pattern for your princess quilt. A-dor-able!

  7. Nothing better than seeing the kiddies rolling around in one of your quilts! This chevron quilt is my favorite of yours......Beautiful!

  8. Wonderful fabrics! It will be very nice quilt! And your princesses... so nice! :)
    Have a wonderful time!

  9. I am working on this fabric, I just might add a castle.......

  10. There's nothing better then snuggling under a super cute and super comfy quilt ;) :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  11. Cute preview, and love the pics at the bottom :o)

  12. Adorable! I'm so glad to hear that your December has been a fun one so far! :)

  14. Yes!!! I have twin princesses that would love princess quilts!! Please could you post it up?

  15. Maureen! It's going to be amazing!

  16. I am wanting to make something for my daughters princess birthday party next year...I would love to see the finished quilt for sure!

  17. I would love to see a pattern and make a quilt for my Granddaughter! Already looks too cute for words.

  18. I have two young daughters who are all princess all the time. :) I love all your work and would love to see your finished princess quilt and a tutorial if you get one.

  19. Hi, Maureen
    I can't wait to see the castle quilt! I don't have any princesses as grandkids, yet! I do have three grandsons and my mind has started thinking about how to make a castle quilt for the boys.

  20. Beautiful fabric, and I love quilts that are a bit interactive, so now I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished quilt. It sounds gorgeous.

  21. I love the fabric you chose. How nice for everyone to have a quilt made by you. My calendar just arrived a couple of minutes ago--one for me and one for my best friend. I LOVE them!!

  22. Hi Maureen!
    Can't wait to see the Princess quilt! I am sure it will be adorable. Also just wanted to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas. I have really enjoyed your blog. Your quilts are so inspiring. happy Holidays.
