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.

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

Toddler Quilt

I did a custom quilt for a little boy who wanted puppies, robots, letters, numbers, trucks, shapes and dinosaurs.

His mom hit all of the fabric stores and we came up with this pattern together.

I might go back and re-do the binding later, but I rushed to get this done as a christmas present (and still missed that deadline, but came sooooo close.)

I took these pictures in a big hurry before delivery. The front squares are 9″ x 9″ and quilt finished at very close to 70″ x 90″.

Teal and Pink Wonky Star Quilt

I pulled out a work in progress that is more than a year old and finished it up. I originally didn’t know who it was for, and then I realized it was too precious to give away and finished it up for my own little girl.

I can’t love the colors more.

There was a specific request to have a  “cozy” satin binding. Which I think was the perfect solution.

Purple and Green Lattice Wedding Quilt

I tend to not use patterns. I do the rough math and adjust to make larger or smaller. This time I thought I was going to do a Queen size quilt.

 

But I had started with around 80 hand cut diamonds and when I picked this pattern I was faced with having to cut around 140 more to make a big quilt.

Time was running short and then I looked at the bride’s registry. Even though she asked for a purple and green quilt, all the rest of the bedding was red. So, I gave my self permission to go the easy route. Couch quilt!

I asked my husband if we could just give them cash and keep the quilt.

But he says he already told them about the quilt. Phooey.

WIP Purple and Green Diamond Quilt

A month from tomorrow my husband’s sister is getting married and my guest room has a HUGE pile of crafty things growing and growing and growing for the event. More on that later.
I stepped away from that wedding to work on a quilt for an October wedding who requested purple and green. A sneak peak of the progress.

I am working without a pattern, just some rough math and graph paper and almost 200 purple diamonds. I am loving the diamonds these days. Starting with this baby quilt and then the  pink and red pillows I feel like a pro at cutting diamonds.

2″ green sashing and I am loving the result! It has taken almost 2 weeks to get to this point, where I have sewn half the top. It might be a while before I can call this baby done.

teal and pink stars quilt, wip

for the first time ever I have no idea who I made a quilt for.

it might become a wedding present for an october wedding, but they aren’t really pink and blue people…

my indecision also means I have no idea how big to make it.

so it might just stay a quilt top for a while…

Two baby quilts for donation

Filed under: A Lot of Quilts,Baby Sized Quilts,Blue Quilts,Pink Quilts — perrymoffitt @ 2:20 pm

The Philly Modern Quilt Guild is doing a group of  I Spy quilts for donation to a children’s hospital. Tonight is the night that we turn them in. I have to say that while I am not super proud of the design or quilting on these (it was some late night quilting last night) I am hopeful they will make some child’s hospital stay a little sunnier.

I love quilt stacks, they make me feel accomplished!

Variegated thread for both quilt tops, but you can only really tell on my pink and green one. The backing for this one is a lovely garden scene that picked up all the colors from the front.

I went a little crazy on tight quilting lines, but I think the pattern helped make the top a little fancier.

Super simple squares on this one. All those bright colors didn’t need much else. I really love the striped backing on this one! I chose to do this fold over binding as these quilts will be getting a lot of washing and binding is always the first thing to loosen up.

Leaving for a fantastic vacation this weekend where I will deliver some of my homemade goodies! see you in June!

Star Quilt Started!

I started some of these fantastic wonky star blocks that have been popping up everywhere. I just couldn’t resist starting something new when I made a stack of teal and pink. I thought I was so original and the pink and teal were the best idea I ever had. Then I cleaned up the magazine stack that had been lingering on the kitchen table and found this-

And then I realized that the teal and pink brainwave was not mine alone. Oh well, I still love it!
