Baseball Baby Quilts {Applique Bonanza} from Little Bunny Quilts

Since last I posted about the progress on my baseball baby quilts, I made some creative decisions about what to do for the applique section of the quilts. It also helps that I now know the names!

My final decision was to add just the name to each quilt. With the names being longer, I decided to simplify the applique section. I created my own alphabet templates for this project simply by making a font extremely large in Word (one page per letter!). The tracing was done with the help of the afternoon sun in my bathroom window and I ...

Sometimes Straight Line Quilting is all it Takes from Quilted Joy

The number of designs available to put on a quilt is infinite. There are thousands of professional designs for sale as paper pantographs. If you can draw it, you can quilt it. However, all designs are not equal. Some are tighter and denser than others, while others are open and barely quilted at all. Some are flowery, or whimsical, or modern. And still others are traditional, geometric, or repetitious. But with all those different designs to choose from, sometimes straight line quilting is all it takes.

Car Seat Quilts from Colleen Quilts Too!

My daughter and son-in-law have just had twins!  A boy and a girl.  I'm not posting pictures, as I haven't got permission from them to do so, but I do have pictures of quilts (surprise!)

I made them each a quilt to cover their carseat.  This is a Moda Bakeshop pattern, the Sophie Car Seat Cover, by Jennie Pickett.  I saved it years ago, as it was so cute - and I knew it would come in handy in the Canadian climate.

Here are my versions:

The colour is off, as I took the picture indoors, after dark.  They ...

Jungle Cabin: Finished Quilt from Goer

The products featured in this post were given to me by Island Batik, including products from Aurifil and Hobbs.

Our November Island Batik Ambassador challenge was to use log cabins. Log cabin blocks are so versatile. Many of us decided to utilize our 2 1/2" strip precuts. I thought this would be a great opportunity to do just that and brought out my Jungle Cruise strips. This collection is full of color in a variety of prints: tortoise shell, giraffe, snake skin, cheetah, reptile, and fern/leaf. My accompanying yardage was snake skin in hay and giraffe in citrine ...

After a very long absence from my blog, I am back with the last quilt I achieved.
It was a very easy and quick baby quilt to complete, though hand quilted. 
I started end of September and finished beginning of November, just in time before flying to Paris : 
last stitches the night before!

This quilt is a gift for my niece who decorated the bedroom of her future daughter using very soft colors. I first intended to sew a quilt using my beloved Liberty fabrics but, after I received the pictures of the wallpapers, I put them away and decided ...

Sunshine and Silver Linings from The Root Connection

Last November, as soon as Gautam and Kim shared the news of their pregnancy, my mind started thinking of a baby quilt.

Will it be for a boy or a girl? What pattern will I choose? What theme would they choose for their baby's room?

All I knew, I wanted this quilt to be very special. I wanted this quilt to be an heirloom. It was going to be hand quilted. It had to be soft and cozy for mother and child. Yes, I wanted it to be big enough so  both parents can use it and snuggle in ...

It’s been far too long since we posted a quilt tutorial!  While this quilt is baby size, since we are gifting it to a friend with a sweet newborn, it is easy to expand in both directions for any size.  Another great feature of this quilt is that it uses 2.5″ strips, which are easy […]

Quilt Retreat Finishes from Goer

One of my favorite parts of being in a quilt guild (or two!) is attending quilt retreats. The first weekend in November I spend the weekend in the Marin Headlands with SCVQA. It has a spacious sewing space, the food is delicious, and the views are amazing!

The majority of projects that I brought for the weekend were pieces that I wanted to finish in time to share at my Nov. 10 lecture at Amador Valley Quilters. Two of these were finished at the retreat. (The other two I made great progress on and will be sharing them on the ...

Pink and Yellow from Pinkadot Quilts

Love that twirl!

Some easy Sunday sewing. I have been a little under the weather so this took some effort. But it was sunny and that lifted my mood.

I am working my way to the next block. All pieces are cut out and waiting for me.

This area also needs my's amazing how quickly that happens!

I'm loving these Grunge fabrics (top) and wondering what took me so long? The bottom are basics by Zen Chic. You can find the at the Quilt Block in Exton PA.

Friday from Pinkadot Quilts

 Today is a perfect day for sewing, gloomy and now raining.
I love 4 patches! The centers are very easy to swirl too. They are so versatile and so easy to make. If they are scrappy they will also give you an interesting design.

There is something soothing about matching the pairs and chain piecing them under the foot of the sewing machine. Almost automatic. Before you know it they're done!

If you haven't learned how to chain piece go find a You Tube video now! It will save you time and thread. Once you are set up ...

Lost! Two Quilts from Lost Quilt Come Home Page

Please share! Let’s help Peggy to find these quilts. In her own words: “A very sad quilt thing happened. After I brought home my quilts from our guild’s quilt show, I gave my daughter back the 2 I had made for her kids, my grands. They were in her car along with a bunch of other things to be dropped off to a charity box in Media, PA. Yep! On November 1, they were mistakenly dropped into the box, as well. She has contacted the company and she and they’ve gone through bins and bins of things ...

Rainy Monday from Pinkadot Quilts

I know I am the odd man out but I love a rainy Monday! I always have so much to do so it doesn't bother me at all. I also am very productive.
I found this wonderful vintage quilt and just could not leave it behind. The blocks are small, 4 1/2" finished and they are all hand pieced! A true labor of love. It's big too, 283 blocks a perfect size to use as a throw quilt.

The fabrics are varied which gives it a lot of life! The solid fabrics in the center of the ...

A birth quilt, 6 years in the making from Samelia's Mum

My friend Samantha has a sister. Her sister was pregnant and for her baby shower, Samantha asked all of the family and guests who were coming along to the party, to bring some fabric which would eventually be used to make a quilt for the unborn child.

Another Great-Grand Finish from Sew........This Is My Blog

Not only did I just finish another quilt to put back for the great-grands, I also got something checked off my UFO list. That's two things to be excited about!

I started this quilt at a retreat in April of 2016, but I just barely started it.  That made it officially a UFO, and now that list is down to only five. The pattern is called "Framed" from the book "Simply Retro" by Camille Roskelley.  The fabric line is "Bright Sun" by Sherri and Chelsi of a Quilting Life for Moda.   Cute, right?

This one is hand quilted with ...

How to Quilt Twin Tulips – Video Tutorial from Quilted Joy

Are you ready for a new longarm quilting video tutorial? You may remember the last video showing how to quilt the Daffodils design (if you need a refresher, click here to watch the video again). My newest design, called Twin Tulips, is a variation of those simple elements. Check out the video below.

In the video, I was quilting inside a 2 inch sashing space. Within that space, I used my mechanical chalk pencil to add lines every 2 inches. This created a series of 2 inch squares within the sashing. I like adding these registration marks to keep my ...

Fireburst Flimsy from Needle and Foot

I have a quilt top to share with you!  It is my first time participating in a mystery quilt project.  For those of you who aren’t familiar, a mystery quilt is an event where the quilter who designed the pattern releases bits of information on a regular schedule.  The participating quilters follow along, making something but not knowing what the final result will look like.  This event is the Fireburst Mystery Quilt designed and hosted by Tish of Tish’s Adventures in Wonderland.

A little bit of background – I haven’t ever participated in one of these because, honestly ...

Playing Catch-Up - Two Finishes from Sew........This Is My Blog

Recently, I was updating my spreadsheet where I document all the quilts I make (yes, I am that nerdy) and realized I've had a few finishes I had forgotten to share with you.

The first finish was in July.  I had blogged in 2013 about the disaster of working with a badly cut kit.  You can read about it here.   The whole thing was so frustrating I put it away for a while.  A long while, actually. I picked it up again in 2017 and got a handle on how I could make it into something acceptable.  You can ...

What I'm Working On Right Now from Mama Spark's World

I have a couple of baby quilts I need to make.   I have been thinking that they may both be having boys.   No one has said that and I have nothing to back that up with, just a hunch.  I am going to have to make a quilt that would work for either.   I found the cutest pattern by Made By Marney called Later Gator.   I thought that would be a cute one to make for the first quilt I need to do.
