Think Pink

I made this very special quilt for a dear friend of mine who is fighting breast cancer.  We stayed the weekend with them last month, and it was so much fun to give this quilt to her in person!  Love you Holly!!

Pattern is Radio Wave by Jae Bird Quilts.  Made with 2.5 inch strips.  Love this pattern!

Post wash measurement: 58 x 66

Striped binding: my favorite

Summer Lovin’

Yay…another finished quilt (made the blocks in 2009 and pieced the top in 2011)!!!!  So happy this is done, and looking at it, I don’t know what on earth took me so long to finish it!

I’m loving the turquoise, orange, and pink combination!  Primary fabric line is Summer in the City by Urban Chicks for Moda, but there are lots of other random fabrics as well.

Post wash measurement: 68 x 68.

Cottage Romance

It’s 2015.  I first started this quilt in 2009, but at least I finished it! 😉  The pattern is Jelly Filled by Camille Rosekelley.

I think it turned very soft, feminine, and sweet.

The post wash measurement is 56 x 62.

Winter Wonderland

I’ve had the Merry & Bright fabric by Sandy Gervais for over 5 years in my stash (gasp)!  I finally broke into the layer cake and made this quilt, and boy am I glad I did.  I love it so much, and I also love love love the pattern.  I used the Simple Layer Cake Pattern, except I made it bigger.  The piecing comes together so quickly too for an added bonus.  I used this pattern for 30’s Squared.

Prewash measurement: 67 x 76
Postwash measurement: 65 x 71

Spooktacular

With Ellie on fall break for 2 weeks, we decided to make a Halloween quilt together.  She organized all the fabric to be sewn, and then she arranged all the squares all by herself.  So proud of her!

I didn’t think we’d get this one done for Halloween 2014, but we did!  Yes!!!

Post wash measurement: 61 x 69.  Nice and big to snuggle under while watching tv.

Ellie’s Blush

Ellie and I started this quilt back in January of 2011.  We pieced, quilted and sewed the binding on the front.  The only thing left was to hand stitch the binding to the back of the quilt. But the quilt stayed nicely folded for years, literally.  She doesn’t even remember this quilt.  Sniff.

With the amount of time I spend on the pool deck for swim practice I figured that would be a great opportunity to finish up some projects.

So while it was crazy hot and humid on deck, I stitched the binding and Ellie’s Blush is now done, washed, and ready to snuggle under.

Post wash measurement: 56 x 56.

You Are My Sunshine

Yay!  I have a new nephew! :)  Just the excuse I needed to start quilting again.  I love the combination of the yellows and grays…it’s like sunshine on a cloudy day (you know how the song goes–You are my sunshine, you make me happy when skies are gray….).

Baby quilts are so fun to make, since the whole quilt comes together relatively quickly.  I just love how it turned out!

I used the Snapshot pattern from Happy Hour by Atkins Design.  I love this pattern (I used it for Caterpillar’s Meadow).

I hope my nephew, Ben, loves his new quilt!

Post wash measurement: 34 x 42.

Summer Breezes

I designed this quilt a long time ago while traveling for my kids’ swim meet.  In fact, I came across the original design sketches that were on an Embassy Suites notepad.  So it’s fitting that I’m donating this quilt to our swim team’s silent auction.

I love the oranges and aquas, and there just might be another quilt with these same mix of colors in the works.

Post wash measurement: 56 x 64

Back and binding is same fabric as back

I always love when I get to hand deliver a new quilt to its new owner.  I love to see their reactions, and I do believe B loved it.

The prewash measurement: 53.5 x 62.5.

The postwash measurement: 52 x 59.5.

Love me a striped binding!
