busy bee summer!

well - i have been So busy this summer so far. weddings (my cousin) and babies (my best friend's) and lots for me to work on. Non-etsy things, which is fun, because i love my sewing machine and i love quilting. So here are some pics of what i have been up to, more to come next week once the mom and dad to be get there gifts :)this is the top 1/3rd of a wedding gift quilt. these are roses and leaves, and moose and grass will take up the bottom 2/3rd of the quilt. I love making homemade treasures like this, but about this time i always wish for more time, and that i didn't treasure making these forever gifts! its exhausting! :)

here are a couple new things on my etsy site... http://jenvecc.etsy.com

little itty bitties...

so yesterday i spent a few hours in my sewing room... organizing! i got enough of my mom in me that i need to compulsively organize sometimes. which it ended up being a really good thing. I hung some cork board to hang inspiration... and went thru all my back magazines of "Quilting Arts" (which as a side note is an incredibly inspiring magazine-even if you don't quilt). Well when i was going thru the mags i found an article about creating "inchies" small, quick, impulsive, creative, test quilts! the article said to try to make them about an inch. way to small for me! i mean i like making big things (remember went to school for sculpture!) so i increased the size to 2.5 inches. which is still pretty small.

I layered some nice blue fabrics and then went to work playing... check out what i ended up with!
i think that these will be fun to make... not really sure what i will do with them. maybe attach into a wall hanging once i have a few of them...? not sure... please share any ideas! :)

have a super day!
