Herringbone Scrappy Quilt (In Progress)

Hey Folks! This is my current quilting project. Scrappy Herringbone. I've been working on this for a few months on & off. Strictly using vintage & modern fabric scraps from my leftover bins. I know it's a little crazy and it makes my eyes go a little wacko, but I love it!! I have a good 24 more blocks to go and the top'll be complete rounding out to be a large twin size quilt. 
This was the beginning back in early September 2017. 12 blocks in.
I have three scrap bins I choose from...modern & new fabrics or upcycled 100% cotton fabrics from clothes or bed linens, vintage fabrics or cut up retro clothing. Then a specialty bin for fabrics I've printed myself, cut up tea towel or aprons with characters or words on them. I like to mingle all three into my quilts to make them fun and entertaining to the eye. 
Each square is unique and far from perfect. I wanted to kinda eyeball the sizes of the strips of fabric and give it a little more "scrappy" character. 
Almost ready to stitch the whole thang togetha. 
You can tell I still have giant blocks of eight smaller blocks and it tends to get a little tricky to make sure all the seams meet up, but we'll make it work. This little lady will be entering my Etsy Shop in the near future! 
Hope you enjoyed the little glimpse into my world of makeshift quilting. I am by no means a professional, but you can't say I'm not passionate!
Plenty more where this came from! Thanks for visiting.

Handprinted Baby Bibs!

Omg! I have been having so much fun with my new venture! I have been experimenting with printing fabric on and off for a few years and I finally just dove right in! I first began making homemade baby bibs for my second son Rigby and got nothing but compliments. I figured hey, I may have something here, but if not, who cares! I love making them!
I absolutely love the rustic quality of handprinted fabrics, much like my love for anything xeroxed or  screenprinted, which seems a lil too intimidating for me. 
Choosing and designing the color combos has been the most fun. It feels great to use my creativity to create things for children that also keeps the creativity churning. 
Most of these goodies will be appearing in my Etsy shop : https://www.etsy.com/shop/KlTSCHYMAMA
or maybe sometime popping up in a Wisconsin Art Collective near you!

Wacko Kiddo's Quilt

Hey Folks! Before I get ahead of myself and blog about the quilt I'm currently completing, I had to sneak in the process and final result of a small kiddos quilt I made a few months back. It took be about a week to finish up and I love it! I used a mixture of new and vintage fabrics, nice and colorful!
During this time I also designed and printed new "Handmade By Kitschy Mama" tags from Spoonflower. I plan on using these babies for lots of upcoming handmade projects.
 This kid's quilt is perfect size for in the crib or in the car. My new labels made it on there too!
Coming soon for sale in my Etsy shop : KITSCHYMAMA
