My favorite seven-year-old with his finally-finished baby blanket! Weโ€™re actually calling it a cuddle blanket, since heโ€™s no longer a baby. ๐Ÿ˜ Two more to make and all my kiddos will have their own special cuddle blanket made by mama! One for my four-year old (I want to make the #bjornbearquilt) and another for baby FIVE due to arrive in November!! ๐Ÿคฐ๐Ÿ˜„โค๏ธ Canโ€™t wait!! Anyway, this quilt is the #craftsmanquilt pattern by @diaryofaquilter and itโ€™s a quick make great for showcasing larger prints. Fabric is all @michaelmillerfabrics and quilting was done by @missouriquiltco. Hopefully this quilt will get lots of love and cuddles!

Cute little birds singing in a tree! Reminds me of the song, โ€œI sing because Iโ€™m happy, I sing because Iโ€™m free! For His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š #sweettweets #mamascottagefabric #sewingillustration #threadillustration #zirkelmagneticpincushion

Finished another sweet mini from the Sweet Tweets book last night! So cute, and I love how the free-motion swirls pop on the linen. This reminds me of Valentineโ€™s Day, but every day is a good day to spread some love!! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• #sweettweets book by @whynotsewquilts #mamascottagefabric by @amrosenthal #sewingillustration #heartquilt #valentines #valentinesquilt #sharesomelovetoday

Had so much fun at my momโ€™s this afternoon! We sewed this cushion cover up together while the kids napped/played. I love how it turned out!! Mom will add some cute crochet edging to it and then itโ€™ll be ready for gifting!! (One of these years Iโ€™ll learn to crochet... but I probably donโ€™t need another hobby...๐Ÿ˜‚) #sweettweets #sewingillustration #sweetmarionfabric by @amrosenthal #cushioncover #quiltedcushion

Made this little stack of coasters for my dear mother-in-law. ๐Ÿ’• This is the first project in the Sew Illustrated book by @zeriano and @kristin_esser and it was SO much fun!!! If you have this book and havenโ€™t tried thread illustration yet, youโ€™ve got to give it a try!! ๐Ÿ˜„ Happy Friday, friends!! #sewillustrated #coasters #threadillustration #mothersdaygift #mamascottagefabric by @amrosenthal

Such a lovely spring day - sunny sunshine, cool breeze, and birds cheerfully singing their tunes outside my window!! Just finished up this sweet little bird wall hanging and it fits this day perfectly!! #ilovespringtime #sweettweets @whynotsewquilts #mamascottagefabric @amrosenthal #sewingillustration

First time trying thread illustration, and first time making a cushion! I was nervous I might mess it up so I used scraps for this first one, but I LOVED how fun and forgiving this technique is!! This cushion is already claimed by my daughter, but Iโ€™m sure more will be coming soon!! ๐Ÿฆ ๐ŸŒธ โ˜€๏ธ Pattern by Erin @whynotsewquilts in her #sweettweets book. #threadillustration #sewingillustration #quiltedcushion #celebratespringfabric by @gervaissandy
