Odds and Ends

This weekend I got the luxury of heading north and visiting my parents.  These little succulents were hanging out in the window just begging to be photographed!  I have tried growing them but they just don't hold up so well with my green thumb.  

I also convinced my Dad to rearrange the yard for a photo shoot!  He is such a great Dad.  

"Yep, Dad.  Please put the wood cage little to to the right.  Thank you."

"Oh, and please close up the doors!"  

All for this!  A photo shoot of my Odds and Ends quilt top finished.  *Sorry for the slight blur, it was so windy.

I started with a layer cake of Odds and Ends by Cosmo Cricket.  Then used this tutorial by Missouri Star Quilt Company to make the HST.  In the video she used charm packs and made a pinwheel.  I just modified for a layer cake, but, easiest way to make 4 HST at once!

My Grandmother also dug out my baby quilt my mother made me when I was a baby.  I didn't remember this quilt at all. This one got me a touch emotional!  Here it is looking very loved.  

Signing out from the Huckins homestead.  This is actually Dad's other barn!  

Sew long for now, 



  1. This quilt is so pretty! So simple yet striking- I love the colors and the pattern. You are so talented. Also, the whale baby quilt is adorable :-)

  2. Great pictures! But particularly love the little whale quilt!

  3. What a wonderful dad you have to help you create just the right vignette for your beautiful quilt. Nice job.

  4. Love your quilt! The setting is fabulous, nice that you also got to photograph the baby quilt. Quilting is definitely in your blood.

  5. Hip hip hooray for dad and his tractor! I love the barns. I know this is all about the lovely quilts, but when the setting is so pretty, it deserves a comment too! :)

  6. Hi Chelsea! You left a comment for me but I couldn't reply so I thought I would stop here! The badger fabric can be found at a few local wisconsin quilt stores and walmart.
