Kitten on a Quilt Quilt

This is one of the Fat Quarter Shop snapshots patterns. I doubled the size to make a quilt big enough to donate to Project Linus. I love the pattern – time-consuming but straight-forward. And the Heather Bailey fabrics are just happiness. I did a stipple free-motion quilt pattern – still one I need to workContinue reading “Kitten on a Quilt Quilt”

Bluebird Park Triangles – A FINISHED Quilt

This thing.  Sigh.  I was so excited when I started this quilt.  I bought the Child’s Play pattern, two charm packs of the sweet Bluebird Park collection.  And then about an hour in, I started to hate this quilt.   I didn’t like how much fabric was wasted making the triangles (although the method ofContinue reading “Bluebird Park Triangles – A FINISHED Quilt”

Warm Star Baby Quilt – A FINISH!

Boy oh boy oh boy oh boy!  I am so thrilled with the progress I have been making with getting some WIPs done.

WIPs – The Unruly State of Things

This year I have completed 29 projects.  Basically a project every week.  I think that pace is too fast.  But like many quilters, I want to move quickly so I can sew all the things.  Many (most) of my projects were smallish…4 mini quilts, 1 table runner, 1 mug rug, 3 wall hangings that wereContinue reading “WIPs – The Unruly State of Things”

Project Linus #6: Dots and Squares Baby Blanket

I love this quilt.  Love the colors.  Love the polka dots.  LOVE LOVE LOVE the Oh, Deer! (Momo for Moda) fabric on the back… the little deers and squirrels… the soaring birds… Here is the front – the only thing I would do differently is to make all the centers of the squares white –Continue reading “Project Linus #6: Dots and Squares Baby Blanket”

Done: Two Tops and a Back!

My stack of unfinished projects is growing.  Boo!  So I took some time to finish some stuff up. First up, the top that will be for Project Linus or maybe a friend’s baby… regardless, this fabric is gorgeous.  I finished all those little 2″ squares.  Love. Next, the top of a Project Linus quilt withContinue reading “Done: Two Tops and a Back!”
