  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. As a wedding and portrait photographer, I have a photography blog that shares the work I do for clients. This blog is for my other creative side. The side that goes weak at the knees over fabric, adores anything crafty, and gets cranky without some sewing machine time!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

tumbler quilt

This quilt originated last winter, when I pulled a stack of fabrics for Ellie’s stroller quilt but realized they clashed with her stroller.  I loved the colors together, and with the tumbler die from Accuquilt and my friend’s borrowed cutter, this quilt was born!  The top went together quickly, and I decided I wanted to pebble quilt it on a long arm.  This is when things slowed down.  Badly.  It took 3 hours for me to do 1/5 of the quilt top and those 3 hours were painnnnnnful.   The combination of the bed sheet back and the circular motion meant I would sew for approximately 45 seconds before the thread would break and I’d have to rethread the machine. The quilt then sat in a pile for many months!  Luckily a pro long arm quilter came to my rescue and finished this bad boy up for me, and it now lives on the sofa where it is most loved.  It’s a big one–just shy of twin sized, which is my new favorite size because everyone in the family can sit under it together.

On the back side I included a strip of tumblers.
