I did take a picture! from Books, Hooks, Sticks, etc.



I had mentioned in a previous post about making a quilt for a banker of ours that was having her first baby.  At that point I did not think that I had taken a picture. . . . but I had, with my iPad.


Since I cannot seem to get the iPad photos to post correctly to Blogger I had to do some "finagling" to get the picture here.


The pattern is Turning Twenty and I used 1930's reproduction fabrics for the quilt.  I quilted it on our long arm in a loopy meandering design.




Our banker friend really liked the quilt ...

hippie baby part 2 from Making A Lather

Project #1, in the project box, was to take odds and ends blocks and leftover pieces from a quilt I did a few years ago and make a baby quilt with it.
I first had to take a rail off the rail fence blocks since mine had 5 rails and the pattern called for 4. But I knew I would use that rail as another piece.


Then I needed to cut the blocks into 4 1/2 inch strip sets.


 I added 7/8 of a yard of the light fabric that I showed in my blog post on Monday ...

Giant Rose Star Quilt from Pink Doxies


The Kite Shape:
Working with 60 Degree Shapes


The kite shape was never on my bucket list of "Have-to-make that!", but likely because I didn't know its capabilities. I hadn't had much experience with it, and needed to know how it related to other shapes in the 60 degree family. 

Did you know the kite shape is a combination of a hexagon and a small triangle married together at one of the six sides? Many of our first shape experiences are as children, and most of us did not encounter it. It's rarely included in shape sets ...

Petal Power Baby Quilt from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

I can't seem to stay ahead of the baby quilts these days, but thankfully they don't take very long to make. Some old friends have an amazing daughter and she and her husband welcomed their first baby into the family and of course that means that a baby quilt is in order. It all started with this sweet fabric that I found when I made my last trip to see my mom in February and I thought I'd pair it

Antietam Inspired Quilt {Finished Baby Quilt} from Little Bunny Quilts

Today I'm sharing the finish of my April Island Batik Ambassador challenge! This month's theme is using vintage quilts to inspire new creations!


I chose a quilt in the museum of Antietam National Battlefield as my inspiration which you can read more about in my previous post! I made nine blocks in the same design as those in the original quilt.


I put together the blocks with 1.5" sashing strips. I very often sash 12" blocks with 1" finished sashings for baby quilts -- that way the quilt is narrow enough to use a single width of fabric ...

Spring is in the Air Quilt Finish from Dizzy Quilts

Last year, Shannon from sf Designs launched her Spring is in the Air quilt pattern and I almost immediately purchased a copy - baby quilts are so useful and this design was particularly fun!


I used scraps for my version along with some Kona White. I love how colourful it is and it was a pretty quick make.


I once again went with wavy horizontal lines with white thread for the quilting.


For the back, I used some of the leftover blocks in two columns along with some leftover backing from another quilt. I love that I used every last bit ...

An X-Block Project from Quilt Fabrication

I am infected with spring fever! Yep - I've got it bad!


spring fever

With the last two Midweek Makers geared towards spring colors, the yard spruced up with new plants and black bark,


front yard spruce up

and seeing the bees enjoy all the blossoms - I'm definitely infected! 

And I totally relate to the bees - flitting around, unable to settle on just one blossom or plant, wanting to taste everything. The same goes for my quilting projects. There's the Stockade quilts I've teased you with; scrap blocks for a quilt in an upcoming book hop; the desire to play with the Rapid ...

Just Monkeying Around from Gray Barn Designs

A quick spring update:

  1. It snowed again here today. I’m not talking flakes, I’m talking snowglobe snow. Sigh.
  2. I’m so excited to meet up with Cindy in Chicago at the International Quilt Festival this weekend!  I can hardly sleep with so many things to think about, like what to pack, what to budget for fabric purchases, where to find a good adult beverage near the convention center — you know, all of the essentials of travelling.
  3. A friend of mine from work is having a baby. Brave soul: she has a son graduating from high school this year ...

Next Step for Prism Path Baby Quilt from The Free Motion Quilting Project

Yes indeed, it's time to take the next step on the Prism Path baby quilt along. He he...this is both a baby quilt along because it's a baby quilt and because it's really short - just 6 weeks from start to finish!


Click Here to find Post #2. 

This week we're piecing the strips sets and cutting pieces using a cool Bargello technique. I love this technique for piecing complex quilts that look like they are pieced from hundreds of little pieces. In fact, this is created with strip piecing and careful cutting.


If Prism Path ...

TGIFF: Noodle’s Baby Quilt! from Hobbies Up To Here

Not too long ago I finished a small baby quilt for my nephew, Noodle. No, he’s not actually named Noodle but that’s pretty much what I call him 100% of the time! It was a cute little nickname that stuck and now he is forever my Noodle! He turned 1 in February and I had … Continue reading TGIFF: Noodle’s Baby Quilt!

Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit from Needle and Foot

It is the first of the month and my sister Tina was the first person to start the texting this morning. I don’t remember when we started, but it was years and years ago.  As kids, on the first of the month, “Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit” had to be the first words each of us uttered in order to have good luck all month long. It was a disappointment to forget and then hear a sister utter the words.  I would think, dang it – it is the first of the month.  We are not a superstitious bunch but we did ...

Hi, all!

Another week has flown by, and it's Friday again - and that means it's time to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  I actually was ready early this week - a miracle, I know - so let's get started!!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*


Here is my newest quilt, a simple triangle quilt made using the colors in the curtains of my great-niece's future bedroom!  I'm really thankful for that little color strip on the selvage of fabric and my Kona color chart....


I used the leftovers from the front to piece a scrappy back...

NEARING TIME TO PACK from The Proficient Needle

I've been cleaning up my sewing room, as it will soon be time to pack it all up for another season in the south.  I still had one more baby panel, and some coordinating fabric to use, so I spent the past two days making hourglass blocks to add to this pretty panel by Jacqueline Steves.  I can't remember the name of the panel, but I'm calling it Hourglass Farm!

I also worked on my version of Diamond Hill.  I decided to stop after completing the 4 applique blocks, as it will make a lovely large wall ...
