Back in the saddle again ..

... Ok ... maybe just a foot in the stirrup, but we're getting there!

Little Jameson joined our family on 7/12/13. He's a wonderfully peaceful little soul that has Mom, Dad, and Big Brother Aiden absolutely wrapped around his finger.


Before Jamie arrived, I had been playing around with a new quilt pattern based on the motif in this beautiful rug I came across on Pintrest.

Tara Rug by Joss and Main


Before going into labor, I managed to sketch out my pattern and get my hands on some fabric from my favorite 2013 Christmas line, Winter's Lane by Kate & Birdie Paper Co.



Lucky, Jamie is perfectly content to hang out in his Moby wrap, snuggling and snoozing while I sew, so I've been able to put together these blocks.


I'm hoping to be able to finish my sashing blocks this week and have a Friday Finish to share!  In the meantime, I'm linking up with Design Wall Monday over at Patchwork Times, Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story and WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced - be sure to stop by and check out all the wonderful projects going on in blogland!

Happy Sewing!
