Crochet Hat Finishes and Quilty Progress

I feel like I have my hand in several different projects this week and while I have two crochet finishes I only have quilty progress to share. I am excited about what I've been working on though. The crochet things were hat orders from my shop. I also started my middle daughter on her first quilt, finally I was able to finish up the Hazel Hedgehog blocks and make some great progress on my V. and Co. Color Dive quilt. First up, the hats...

This Sleepy Owl Hat is one of my favorites in the shop. My Sister-in-law ordered this one and as is her custom only told me it was for a baby girl. I always have fun with her projects and they lead me to do what I'm in the mood for at the moment. My daughter was wearing an owl shirt that day in these colors and I thought it would be so cute to recreate in a hat.

This Crab Hat is for another customer order from my shop. It is for her baby for Halloween. I love seeing this hat in any size. The baby ones are so cute and small and the adult ones make me laugh every time.

Now on to the quilty projects.

I finally finished these Hazel Hedgehog blocks. I love her patterns but they include so many little pieces. The blocks always take me  longer than I expect them to. I'm excited to have these done also because they were my ALYoF goal for August. I still have a bit to see if I have time to make them into a top but the goal was just the blocks finished.

So this lovely bunch of awesome is my collection of fabric by V. and Co. for Moda. When Vanessa came out with her Simply Colorful lines the idea struck me to do a Color Dive with her fabrics. I was so excited when I was able to get Simply Colorful II early and got started this week.

I am making the king size version. I know I have enough prints to make it happen and I just adore large quilts. I drew out the color pattern and decided how many I needed of each color. There are 574 total squares.

I was also able to make the HSTs for the color dive and started trimming them. I'll be at this for a while but cannot wait to pick the layout! I know I keep saying it but this is going to be EPIC!

Also this week my middle daughter (age 6) started her first quilt. She's doing simple patchwork with a Kate Spain Canyon layer cake. I'm so impressed with her skill and can't wait to see this one come together.
That's us for the week. I hope to get the hedgehog and color dive quilts larger and maybe even finish the tops before my next Friday post.The kids go back to school on Monday leaving me home with the two year-old. We'll see how much sewing she lets me do without her siblings to play with her. Thanks for stopping by! I'm linking up with Finish It Up Friday and TGIFF.

  1. Love your colours and the crochet hats are gorgeous! I'm with you - love Elizabeth Hartman patterns but I rarely finish one because of the fussiness.


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a quick note!
