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.
