Lots of sparkling diamonds in this star block

This design is based on Star Struck, a post that I found on the Seams French blog (see Related links below). Here is what ...

Next Up baby quilt featuring charming farm fabric from Carried Away Quilting

When I saw Stacy Iest Hsu’s newest fabric collection, On the Farm, I just had to sew up a baby quilt. The fabric is darling, with vibrant colors and charming farmyard scenes. In keeping with the country theme, I paired this collection with Moda’s Indigo Chambray and decided to use my Next Up charm pack pattern. The result is a cheerful baby quilt that is gender neutral and hay bales of fun.

Making children’s quilts is so rewarding. For me, they bring back special memories of my kids when they were little. This particular quilt reminds me ...

HST Baby Quilt Finish from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

This little quilt started out because I wanted to use up this fabric that was in my stash. It was a $3.00 add on at some point in order to get free shipping and then I pulled coordinating fabrics from my stash and just stitched up HSTs. I was able to get 2 little quilts out of it but I'm still binding the 2nd one. I used up another bargain fabric from my stash for the backing and bound it with

Scrappy Posie Baby Quilt from Dizzy Quilts

I had so much fun making this baby quilt! The pattern is super quick and easy, I used a bunch of colourful scraps and the quilting is something I hadn't done in a long, long time.

And now that I'm looking at the pictures properly, I love it even more!

The pattern is "Scrappy Posie" by Bonjour Quilts. It's actually a free pattern and it comes in only one size (42" square), but because it's basically just HSTs and squares sewn together, you can easily size up or down. It would be really, really cool made ...

Farm Quilt Finish from Needle and Foot

I am in a quilting and reading phase. Quilt a little, read a lot, quilt some more. There are always so many projects to make and books to be read, am I right?

But – the sewing! I have been getting lots done. Today I will share this cute picnic quilt I made for my grand daughters. I carried this line of fabric (it is all gone – sold so fast!) and before I sold out, I stashed away some of the red and yellow yardage as well as a panel of the animals.

I love seeing red and yellow together. It ...

Whirligigs & Pinwheels Quilt from Samelia's Mum

baby quilt finish from Making A Lather

I have a baby quilt finish. It came to me nearly finished - only missing one border. I can't remember where I found it. I knew it would make a great donation quilt. Our guild donates to the police department for the the kids that are taken from bad situations. They often have only a brown paper sack to take with them. We also have a healthy family organization to which we donate.

It came with a piece big enough for the back. I must say, I like starting out like this, rather than from scratch. haha.

6 blocks had ...

Split Stars Quilt Top {Try A Tool with Island Batik} from Little Bunny Quilts

 Finally an update for my August Island Batik project!

I finished up all of my blocks and turned them into a top! I'm not sure what kind of border this one will have. Maybe light blue?

While it was a bit of a learning curve to use the V-block ruler, it did work out well for these blocks. I liked that I could also use the V-block ruler to trim my HSTs too instead of needing to switch between rulers.

This might be as far as this project gets this month; I have two blog hop projects to work ...

 We've added another applique add-on to our Etsy and Payhip shops for use with our Ready Set Soar and Boot Scootin' Baby patterns!

Our "Up In the Air" hot air balloon appliques are another perfect baby quilt option!

Sage Vintage Lace Quilt from A Ditchin' Time Quilts


These are the colors I was asked to incorporate into the quilt.  Her crib sheet is on the left, paint color in the middle and on the right are the Robert Kauffman's Kona solids that would work best with this quilt.  

I actually used the same colors and pattern that the quilt designer used.

Beatrix Potter Baby Quilt from Quilts + Color

 I made this quilt with a set of Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit hankies. It is at least the 5th similar baby quilt I made. I have more of the hankies somewhere so expect to see another in the future.
It's nice to have a finished baby quilt on hand as there seems to be a lot of babies being born these days.

Baby Mountains Complete from Wedding Dress Blue

This quilt started as test blocks for an idea to make a quilt for one of my grandsons, age  4 at the time.

It was quickly determined that I didn’t want to make more than 300 fiddly blocks for a child’s quilt.  He should be able to build a fort, or wrap a cat, or race around with a long cape…you know, child things.

But I did have cute blocks.  A few more were added and it turned into this baby quilt, which has been languishing for about a year waiting for quilting and binding.

Now it ...

Wednesday's Word: Psalm 107, Part 2. Wednesday Wrap Up. I Like New Recipes! from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Wednesday’s Word:  Psalm 107, Part 2

As I shared on Monday, I was immensely blessed by the Scripture shared on PeaBeas’ Photos and Scribbles so much so that I’ve decided to do a series on them. Last Monday we looked at verse 29a. Today we’ll look at verses 29a – 30.

He stilled the storm to a whisper;
the waves of the sea
They were glad when it grew calm,
and He guided them to their desired haven.
Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love
and His wonderful deeds for mankind ...

Eggs and Bacon from Sew Preeti Quilts

Happy to be Scrappy

Me: Good morning
Paul (groan)
Me: Would you like some breakfast?
Paul: Do we have bacon?
Me: I don't think so.
Paul (Bigger Groan + A Whine)
Me: I can make you an egg sandwich.
Paul: Without bacon??? Why did you wake me up anyway?

How to put these together?

The smaller block needs help

Black floral + orange/yellow stripe is better than just the stripe

Matched size = Success

And so it grows!!!

Eggs without bacon is an least in Paul's opinion.
So when this cute pig ended up next to the eggs ...
