Carle Baby Quilt

A baby quilt for a lovely baby born this summer to some of our favorite hippy-dippy friends.

I love that polka dot fabric so much I wish I had bought more!

Seuss Quilt

Made this just in time for a baby shower for a good friend with a Seuss themed nursery.

Sometimes I find it hard to work with a print like this one. I tried to stick to some simple blender prints and I am thrilled with how it turned out. Not gender specific and bright and cheerful!

I wish I had gotten better pictures but it was late the night before the shower. That is the gift bag there on the left that I crammed it into a few minutes later! … Maybe I will get one with the baby on it! 

This was my March finish for a 4 month Work-In-Progress challenge at the local quilt shop. I started easy, the next 3 WIP’s are much larger so I will be back in a little while with a Kaleidoscope quilt.

Purple and Teal Lap Quilt

IMG_20150117_143400238_HDR

Chevrons. I am not thrilled with the flowers and how they look a little sloppy matching up but I love the colors. A nice variety of prints from Joel Dewberry with all the right tones.

The backing fabric is from another designer and is a little darker in color. I love how it shows off that purple stripe.

I keep thinking this will be a present for someone but somehow haven’t been able to let it leave my house.

Pluses baby quilt

A throwback to some warmer days. When it edged above 30 degrees for days at a time. I pulled out some squares and made a good scrap buster in the fall.

I am just waiting for a baby shower for a girl baby to gift this away.

And I got to use this backing that I have been hanging on to forever. Love!

Nautical Baby Quilt

I love it when I can pull an entire quilt out of my stash! I had a few girl baby quilts for my upcoming market day and nothing for boys, so I whipped up this guy.

I think the wonky star is one of my favorite quilt techniques. I am so happy I grabbed this orange fabric when I saw it.

Grabbing  more than a yard of the pirate fabric when it was on clearance was genius as it made the perfect backing. nautical quilt 1

 

It is all packed up for my farmers market table in 2 weeks, time to finish up all the other things I am hoping to sell!

Father’s Day for a Sailor

I sew and my husband build boats and sails them. Hobbies that should last us the 2+ decades before we retire!  I started this quilt a (very, very) long time ago and broke the free motion foot doing all the quilting.

I eventually got a replacement foot but it still sat in a WIP pile for way too long. In fact, this is probably one of the first 10 quilts I ever did. Here is a closeup of the pebbling on the back…many MANY spools of thread!

When I pulled this out to finish for fathers day I was pleasantly surprised at the backing fabrics, it had been stashed for so  long I forgot how much I like the back!

And a detail that only my husband will appreciate, this is an approximation of the catamaran he built;

This one is an approximation of his brother’s boat;

And a fair guess at his father’s boat;IMG_1011

Scrappy French Braid

Don’t know what I will do with these lovelies yet but, I am slowly but surely making the whole rainbow.

It will have to be a quilt for my bed, because these are just too awesome.

Happy spring days to you! Off to spend some more time in the garden!

Black and White Baby Quilt

A baby quilt for an expecting music teacher. I bought the only music fabrics at the 2 stores I visited,  embraced the black and white idea and found a pin on pintrest and away we go!

IMG_0872

Why yes, I did just finish painting the front hall and adding these hooks. Don’t they look swell?

 

IMG_0874

The applique flower, needed a little something, so I added that stitched swirl.  It makes me want to add more stitched detail somewhere… but where?

IMG_0871

And the back is part of an IKEA duvet cover I got from AS IS for $10. It couldn’t be more perfect for a baby girl!

IMG_0878

Yes, this darn quilt is a rhombus. How I did it, I don’t know. I trimmed at right angles! I Swear!  You don’t notice at all until you hang it… Maybe I will blame it on the new hooks, they must be off… right?

Pink and Brown Baby Quilt

A girl we went to college with just had a baby girl and she was looking for someone to make a memory quilt. These 2 fabrics were something her sister had and she wanted to incorporate them into some kind of blankie for her daughter. I didn’t have much fabric that to matched so I steered toward super pink, but her mom is good with super pink. The corduroy looks more brown in real life, so I went brown to mix with these.

IMG_0663

First the security blankets, the original fabrics, plus satin and a pop of bright pink. I think this is all she was truly asking for but….

IMG_0668

I am a sucker for little girls so I went a little farther and did a quilt. Okay, I guess that is a LOT farther…

IMG_0665

And this is where I fall short in documenting the quilt. Husband set the camera to some ridiculous low pixel setting without my knowing and these are the actual size that pictures are coming out now. My 3 year old phone takes better pictures! But I didn’t know this sadness before I sent the quilt away, so lets just pretend it is 1998 and these digital pictures are awesome. Big pinwheels! Birds and Butterflies! Appliqued satin heart! Pretend like you can see all that…

IMG_0658

And the back. Kind of lackluster but has the remainder of the memory fabric and a border of a vintage sheet. If only it were bigger than a postage stamp!
