A pattern testing sort of week...
This week was a busy one! It's the first week back at school plus we celebrated our son’s 4th birthday. He requested an "Avengers party" - again...little boys and their super heroes!
We shook it up by having an Avenger's Pool party and it was a lovely time spent with friends and family, but I think we all realized the pool party wore the parents out more than the children 😜
I had started the tradition that every year the kid’s get a birthday quilt. With this year’s birthday being Avengers theme, my little Captain America has a Cap quilt to call his own. When he saw it pieced together he said "oh no my gosh! Mommy made me that!" It absolutely melted my heart! ❤️💙❤️
I also completed a pattern test called "Domestic Illusion" for Mister Domestic! He is seriously amazing! If you haven’t checked out his Instagram yet, add it to your to-do list (follow him here). He will be releasing the pattern soon so keep an eye out for it. I used gradient solids in mustard tones and love the results - it definitely won’t be the last one I will be making. I must say I really enjoy the weaving process, and I am a huge fan of the Wefty needle (available here) as it makes the process quick and easy.
Although the week was crazy with wonderful busyness, I did lots of sewing and added new crib sheets to the shop from the new Cotton & Steel "Les Fleurs" and "From Porto with Love", as well as a few from Riley Blake's Greatest Adventure. I really enjoy these sheets as I think they give a fun unique feel to the kid's room!
Some secret pattern testing was also done, but I cannot announce what it is until mid September… getting to work on such fun projects is truly a treat! I can’t wait to show you all!
As mentioned last week, I have also started a “secret” project of my own that will be my next giveaway here in the coming weeks so stay tuned! Here’s a picture for a sneak peak...
Until next week, behappy beunique bequilting

You're weaving projects are amazing! It was fun to see the three pictures – stages together. The colors look so beautiful when you're done.

Mother of two cheeky babies who are my inspiration and are the driving force behind bequilting. Quilting has awoken a part of me that results in special pieces for each home that my work goes to.
