Welcome to Main Crush {Tuesday}! As I mentioned on Sunday, the New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop started yesterday. To keep things from getting too cluttered, I moved MCM to Tuesday this week. It will also be moved the weeks of:

If you haven’t joined in the blog hop fun, you might want to. There’s great prizes from our wonderful sponsors – go check out this post for more infoย and to enter.

Now, on to my crush(es) for this week!

First, I have the cutest little frog to show you. Have you seen this little guy?

Freddy Frog Tape MeasureI’ve named him Freddy. I’m not sure why, I guess he looks like a Freddy to me. My sister gave this little guy to me on my recent visit with her.

Freddy is special – look what he does:

Freddy Frog Tape MeasureHa! This just cracks me up! (No, it doesn’t take much to amuse me..) Freddy hangs out in my sewing room until I take a shopping trip. Then he hops along in my handbag. You know, for those occasions when you just need a tape measure!

I’ve been busy working on client quilts for the past week. I have a stack of them to do and I’m kinda slow. It would be so much easier to load these up on a longarm and quilt away. But I’ll admit, I like being up close and personal to the quilts when I’m stitching on them. I feel like I have a lot more control.

This quilt is so beautiful. The stitching, and the metallic on the border fabric is stunning. It doesn’t hurt that this is one of my favorite colors. The only negative is the gazillion threads I had to bury. But a self-threading needle speeds the process up nicely.

cross stitch quiltI wanted to grab some pictures early yesterday morning, so I took the quilt out before I trimmed it. It was a bit overcast, so when the sun came through Iย tried again. The wind had a different plan:

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen some pics of the stitching I’m doing on my current project. My sister is coming to visit for Easter, so I’m working hard to get this one finished. It will be close. But hey, sleep is underrated right??

I can’t wait to share this finish with you.

Now it’s your turn! Last week we had so many people join our linky party, that we spilled out onto the deck and into the yard. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you so much for linking up and sharing your projects. I love seeing all the inspiration.

First, Lea Anne of Podunk Pretties shared her so sweet Pretty Lemonade quilt that she started quilting. I’m a bit obsessed with the feathers she is stitching. If you didn’t see it be sure to check it out. (I think I saw the finished quilt on Instagram.) It’s so pretty.

Look at these adorable baby shoes! I would love to have a pair for myself – I can’t believe these were a sewing project. For more info on them, hop over to Finding Joy in the Little Things.
