Fresh Sewing Day - January Summary

January flew by!  I can't believe it's already time to do a summary for Fresh Sewing Day and the Small Blog Meet.  For those coming from the Small Blog Meet, I am a quilter that loves to piece and quilt, and sew clothes for my 1 year old daughter.  Welcome, and please check out the other projects on my blog.

I joined two bees so far this year.  I'm really enjoying it so far.  It's a lot of fun to do colors and blocks that I wouldn't have thought of myself.

For the Stash Bee, I made this red and yellow block for Heather from Quilts in the Queue.

That Stash Bee Hive #12 January Bee


I made my test block for the 4x5 Modern Bee.

I also participated in Kids Clothes Week.  Part 1 of my week can be found here.  The pants were really the highlight of the week.  I finished up the week by turning the Oliver and S Hopscotch Knit top into a onesie.  The completed outfit is shown below.

She kept pulling on the neck, I think because it is much stretchier than the onesies she normally wears.

O+S Hopscotch knit onesie and Sandbox Pants

It's such a soft knit, I kind of wish it was for me.  However, I only had 1/2 a yard, so I managed to get a 12-18 month onesie and thought I was doing good.

The linen pants are a little big despite being 12-18 months, but I'm ok with that because I love them and hopefully they will still fit this fall.

And now, she shows off the whole outfit :)

Thanks for checking out my blog, and I hope you stick around and see what else I have here!

Hi, over from small blog meet! Love the clothes for your little one. I make a lot of little girls dresses but hoping to try some new designs soon. Love that stretchy top. So cute!

I love the onesie! It's so adorable and looks so comfy! Great job!

Those are both pretty star blocks. I keep wishing I didn't have too much work backed up to be able to join a bee! How fun to sew clothes for your baby - was it hard to sew the armhole seams?

Thank you, and I love your blog!

I just started following you on Instagram. Good luck with the small blog UK bee!

I wish I could take total credit, but I was just one block. I'm excited to see how her whole quilt turns out.

Thanks for guest hosting so I could find out about your blog!

Thank you for your kind words, and as always - for your linkup.

I'm enjoying the bee experience so far. The stash bee is definitely a little bit easier than the 4x5 bee. The way the pattern is written, the sleeves aren't set in. The first step is to attach the from and back at the shoulder seam, then attach the sleeves. Then the whole side seam of the sleeves and body are sewn in one step so no super small armholes to dealer with. It's genius!

What a cutie! (Even though she is giving her mom hard time :) ) Love the pants!

You do beautiful work! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment a few days ago :) You're daughter is adorable and it's so neat that our babies are the same age. I love the onesie - did you just design the onesie part yourself or use a pattern? I'll have to stop by more often to see what you're working on :)

Thank you! I love seeing babies about the same age, and how they are so similar and different. The onesie is part me, part Oliver +S. It's the Oliver and S Hopscotch Knit top that I turned into a onesie. I keep meaning to do a tutorial because this pattern requires a slightly different method than most shirts, but life gets busy and I don't finish it.

Thank you! I know it gets better… eventually! Thanks for your encouragement :)
