Baby Rocketships

Here is baby quilt #2.  I had so much fun with it, because I’ve never made a baby quilt for a boy before.  I also didn’t buy any new fabric…I raided my stash, and I love how it all came together. The quilt measures 32 x 42, and I used all fat quarters.  The pattern […]

Baby Flower Power

It’s baby season, so I’ve been working on a couple of baby quilts.  One of my really good friends had her second daughter, Riley, 4 weeks early.  Riley will be snuggled tightly in this super girly baby quilt. The pattern is the baby throw by Valori Wells.  The quilt measures 30  x 42.  I used […]

Woodland Bloom Ziggity Zaggity

I absolutely love Lila Tueller’s Woodland Bloom fabric line.  I found a zig zag pattern in the Fons & Porter Baby Quilts, Winter 2008 magazine that I thought would be perfect.  I used 1 jelly roll plus another 10 strips or so to make the quilt bigger than the originally published finished quilt of 47 […]

Cottage Romance

I’m so in love with Camille’s Jelly Filled pattern, and this was my first quilt using that pattern…except I used fat quarters instead of a jelly roll.  On Super Bowl Sunday, one of the local quilt shops had a super sale on fat quarter…$1.25 each!  Needless to say I shopped ’til I dropped.  I bought […]

Scrappy Fat Quarters

While I was taking my beginner quilting class in November, I caught the quilting bug and made this quilt top.  This was the first time I went to the quilt shop and picked out the fabric all by myself…huge accomplishment.  I was a bit overwhelmed at first, but then I remembered my teacher saying “start […]

Jelly Filled Red, White, & Bold

Since I made a quilt for Ellie, I had to also make a quilt for Ethan.  It’s much harder to find appropriate fabric for a boy than it is for a girl.  Ethan’s room is decorated in a patriotic theme…lots of red, white, blue.  So, when I found Sandy Gervais’ Red, White & Bold line […]

Mod Quilt Sampler

Oh, Fransson had a quilt-along, and I loved the pattern, so I raided my stash and I quilted along and made this most adorable quilt for my daughter, Ellie. This was my first attempt at stippling…so much fun! Finished quilt measured about 50 x 60.

Butterfly Fling Squares

I made this baby quilt in December, 2008 for my niece, Kate who was about to be born.  I love the colors and how cheerful this quilt is.  My big accomplishment with this quilt…my first experience with free motion quilting.  I did a simple loop pattern, and I learned so much! The finished quilt measures […]

First Wallhanging

I took my first quilting class in November, 2008.  I learned so much!  And because of that class I am now a quilting addict!   Here is the finished product from my beginner quilting class…a wall hanging.  It now hangs on the wall in my living room, and I love it!
