ARRR8 Round Robin Complete! (Except the binding)

So I finally finished my ARRR8 quilt from Around the Bend and Across the Pond group on Flickr this week. I am going to machine bind this one since it is so massive and I want it on my bed now!  I think it turned ou amazing!

Love how it looks quilted. I like it even more now!

Here is a picture if the quilting up close. I love it so much! 

Can't wait to do the Bee Free round robin quilt! Stay tuned for that one.

White Cloud Diaper Event and Review!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of White Cloud Diapers.
I have to tell you about my first sponsored event I attended last week! It was really fun and I was able to meet other mom bloggers in the area. I do have to tell you that before the event I received my sample of the White Cloud Diapers for my little one and I was intrigued by them because they have the line on them like another major brand does to show you if your little one has a wet diaper. But I LOVE that these White Cloud Diapers don't have a mesh material in them so they don't stick to his bottom like the other brand does. I really like these diapers and to be honest, I will buy them for my little guy. 
This event was so much fun! Carolina of 30 Minute Crafts and Always Expect Moore was the host of our event. She did a fabulous job and I have to tell you it was a learning experience too! I learned that the White Cloud Diapers that Wal-Mart sells have extra stretchy tabs and they fit a little bigger than other brands. I like this feature because he didn't have any "blow outs" as I have experienced when the diaper is too small. Sizes Newborn, 1 & size 2 feature an extra soft quilted inner liner that will help keep messes under control. This is a bonus for me because it's less messy laundry to do. Also, White Cloud Newborn, Size 1 & size 2 early stage diapers feature a wetness indicator that changes color to help parents know when the baby needs to be changed. 
During our event we played two games which were hilarious! We had to guess which food was in the diapers....and these foods looked like messed diapers! Then we had to suck water from a bottle. That was so tough! There were many of these same events happening all over and at each event one lucky blogger would walk away with a Petunia Pickle Bottom bag! It was so very cute! Samantha of Your Golden Ticket blog was the lucky winner of the Petunia Pickle Bottom bag. She was so excited!! It was as much fun watching her win as attending the entire event! 
I am happy that they are fragrance free and hypoallergenic because my boys have such sensitive skin and diapers have been a problem in the past. We had no problems with these the entire week we tried them out. I'm going to be buying White Cloud Diapers for sure! I love that they are affordable and help with my family budget. I'm all about staying on budget and keeping my shopping bill down. You should check them out! I highly recommend them!

Here we are at the start of the event!

Sweet Slumbers

I'm remembering how little and sweet he was just a few months ago! He is getting so big now and is making new strides everyday! I tried this hat on him yesterday and it's much too small now! haha!  Funny how fast they grow isn't it? However, I am getting ready to quilt his baby quilt and can't wait to show it to you all! I found that I made one too many blocks for the front so I'm going to add that to the back and make it the label.

Time to get these pictures printed out so I can hang them on my wall!

Been busy around here lately

I've been more productive in the sewing room lately. I finally made my baby's quilt now that he's four months old! I used Reunion by Sweetwater as the fabric and the pattern comes from Camille Roskelley's book Simplify. I made it a little bigger than the original so I used two charm packs instead of one. I think it turned out perfect! Next up to quilt it.

Stash building

It's been so long since I've purchased fabric that I kinda went a little crazy this week. I love all the new colors and designs coming out. I even have some other fabric in mind too. It's about time my stash is updated. Can't wait to cut into this lovely stack.
