Purple and Teal Lap Quilt

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.

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.

Pirates and Paris, finished quilt.

It feels like it has been a million years since I have been able to say “I finished a quilt” . Maybe that is why I forgot to take a good picture of the whole quilt top finished?  Ah, well- here is the picture before it was finished, and it didn’t change that much. The rest of the pictures are from the finished quilt. Look close and you can see Eiffel towers in those little blue squares… hence Paris of ” Pirates and Paris”.

This little quicky was so satisfying to work on, and the recipients loved it!

however, the velour backing from Ikea was a terrible idea. It stretched like crazy and I finally just did little tiny button shaped stitching to tie it off. It was bunchy and puckery and was a true mess. Cozy and soft. But a mess.

One perk to the backing was the pre-embroidered design, that I think is just so sweet. Live and Learn, stretchy velour = mess.

Quick Pirate Lap Quilt

A quicky for a Christmas present. I have scraped the bottom of the red barrel with this one. I have very little red in my stash left, which means time for shopping! I started this last week and have been managing an hour or two every night after baby’s bedtime. Didn’t get a chance to iron the seams yet but was so thrilled to have something new to blog about I couldn’t resist posting right away. I have an Ikea velour blanket for backing so it will end up being in the neighborhood of 40″ x 48″ when we are done. Here is hoping I can get it done before the big day.

what? you are asking about the orange and purple quilt? yes yes, I put it aside for a moment. It is almost done, but well *i kind of hate it* I have done the best I can with it, but have you ever had a quilt that you hate working on? I hate working on it. It will be nice to give it away, I do hope they like it… Was that mean? No, I really do hope they like the purple and orange that they requested. Oh well, pulling my foot from my mouth…

Do you like the random little pirates? I think it made it a little punky, and the recipient is just a little punky 🙂
