Urban Blooms: Done

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!

Lavendar Fields Baby Quilt

My cousin asked me to make a baby quilt for one of her friends, and since I love making baby quilts (well, all quilts really, but I especially love baby quilts), I jumped at the opportunity.  It’s the same pattern I used for Life’s a Hoot, but I altered the dimensions a bit. I was […]

Ethan’s Quilt: Make Life

Here is Ethan’s quilt.  He and I started this quilt back in January during snow days.  4 months is a long time from start to finish for a 7 year old (I actually finished the binding on April 2, which is Ethan’s birthday, but I didn’t label and wash it until this weekend), so he […]

Hawg Wild

I took a deep breath and opened the washing machine and smiled broadly…no reds or blacks ran onto the white!  Woohoo!!!! Here’s a little background on the quilt’s name.  My son swims competitively for the AquaHawgs, and my daughter will also swim on the team this fall.  The reason we are a part of the […]

Sandy Dunes

The Sandy Dunes quilt has been completed for awhile, but I just haven’t had the opportunity to take any pictures of it until this weekend.  I love the soft pleasing color palette, and it was fun to work with these colors. It’s a late wedding present for my cousin and her new hubby who happen […]

Summer Soiree Baby Quilt

Here’s Summer Soiree all finished and fresh out of the dryer.  I absolutely love the bright colors, and it makes for the perfect baby quilt.  The fabric is Soiree by Lila Tueller for Moda, and I used the Stacked Coins pattern from Moda Bakeshop (I changed up the backing design just a bit). The post […]

Be Giddy

My Be Giddy quilt has been complete for some time, but it took awhile to actually snap some photos.  I absolutely love this quilt (don’t I say that about all of them?!?), because the colors are so cheerful.  I used the Piece of Cake 2 Pattern, by Camille Roskelley @ Thimble Blossoms.  It’s a great […]

Cool Breezes Takes My Breath Away

I am so in love with this quilt!  I love the calm peaceful colors and the fact that it works for the winter and the summer.  The last thing I need to do is ship it to its new owner, and since she doesn’t read this blog, I can say that it’s going to my […]

Sleepy Time Baby Quilt

Oh how I love baby quilts!  They are so satisfying…the piecing is generally pretty quick, and then you can have a quilt completely done in record time.  I’ve had Sleepytime jelly roll by Lori Gardner for Moda for quite some time.  It’s pretty much all pastel colors, and I don’t generally work with pastels (hence […]

Life’s A Hoot

Here is a quilt for my nephew, who’s expected to make his appearance in April.  I was going to wait until closer to his birth date to make and deliver the quilt, but the family decided to throw a baby shower on Christmas Eve, so I had a lot of motivation to get this done […]
