Save those memories with a baby clothes quilt. from A Ditchin' Time Quilts

One of the most fun quilts that I have made in a while is this adorable quilt made out of some saved baby/children clothes.  I was commissioned to come up with a quilt for my friend who wanted a quilt made from her two daughters clothes.  She wanted something very classic with white in it and this is what I came up with!  I did a stacked coin quilt with white sashing.   

my friend Julie and her family



I backed each potential piece of flannel/stretchy tee shirts/sleepers with 801 Pellon interfacing so it wasn't ...

Video Tutorial: Daffodils Quilting Design from Quilted Joy

If you’re looking for a sweet floral design for your next baby quilt, you’ll love the Daffodils quilting design! In my latest video tutorial for APQS I’ll walk you through the steps to quilt this adorable little design.

I quilted my daffodils in a 2 inch border or sashing space. If you’re quilting this in a border or sashing, I highly recommend grabbing your favorite chalk pencil and marking a line every few inches. In the video I added a line every two inches so that I created little two inch blocks. I like marking these ...

Stitching Progress from Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting

I've been trying to get several projects closer to completion this week.  After not getting much sewing done this summer (the sewing room kept turning into a nursery), I'm trying to play 'catch up'. 

My little quilt guild is trying to make 14 quilts for the Naperville 360 boys and girls homes.  This same guild made 8 quilts and gave them for Christmas 2016, but, those boys have all moved on.  I've got 2 quilt tops finished, waiting to be basted and quilted, for the boys.

The first quilt, I made the top back in January 2017 ...

Say Hello to the Little One! from Sew Preeti Quilts

I am listening to Eragon by Christopher Paolini.
The dragon is Saphira, the rider is Eragon. Saphira's name for Eragon - Little One.

Finished Flimsy
I have a finish to share. Finishing at just 37.5" square, it is one of the smaller baby quilts I have made.  Hence the name - The Little One.

3" squares of Kaffe Fassett fabric

Made with 3" Kaffe Fassett Squares, some left over from Clay's Quilt and others cut up from 6" Design Strips.

Irish Chain Layout

There is no story in the flimsy. At least, not yet.  The backing on the other ...

TGIFF: Island Batik Secondary Pattern from Goer

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

I'm pleased to be hosting TGIFF with my latest Island Batik finish. This month's Island Batik Challenge was to create a quilt using a block that created a secondary pattern when the block is repeated. The first thing that came to mind for me was The Bee Hive Quilts block tutorials (from a bee I participated in in 2015). They were all specifically designed with secondary patterns in mind. In my year in the bee I made numerous different blocks and one that ...

baby jax from Making A Lather

I have a finish- baby jax. I bought this as a kit. I really liked the floral and the colors of pink and gray. I quilted an allover butterfly with ash gray thread.

Small Someday #2: Back And Binding from Wedding Dress Blue

Remember this from last week?  DSC01181

It now has a back and binding.IMG_3452

I am ready to move on to another Someday project, but I will let you know when this one is quilted and bound.  IMG_3455

Mostly I am really pleased at the use of scraps.  By searching out the right idea and being flexible with cutting, the scraps are in the quilt and no longer languishing in a bag wishing for “someday.”

If you have a little bag of loveliness hiding away somewhere, maybe today is the day to get it out and ask, “So, what do you want to ...

Pattern Play and Secondary Designs {July IBA Challenge} from Little Bunny Quilts

This month's Island Batik Ambassador theme is pattern play and secondary designs!

What exactly are secondary designs as they relate to quilts and quilting? I think the best, simplest explanation of a secondary design is that it is the additional designs that arise when pieced blocks are placed next to one another. I think the most common example of a quilt with secondary designs is the traditional Storm at Sea quilt.

Image from Generations Quilt Patterns
While this quilt is, when broken down into its parts, are square in a square units and pieced sashings, putting things together results ...

Accidental Skyscraper Quilt, Plus One for a Quirky Baby from Gefilte Quilt

It's amazing how many quilts I make when I'm trying to make something else entirely. Take this one:


Even closer, you can see the Chrysler Building quilting.

(Here's the actual top of that iconic New York building:

I didn't set out to make a quilt about New York City. While scouring my stash for a backing for a different quilt. I happened across a stack of Jan Mullens fabric scraps, purchased in the 1990s at (before it was bought by ...

Baby's I-Spy quilt blocks from Northern Deb Quilts

My back has been giving me problems lately...hard to sit. So I haven't done much quilting.
Today though, the weather was a bit cooler and less humid and I started to feel a little better. I stitched up a few blocks that I had cut out for Charlie's I-Spy quilt. Im using all shirtings to surround the little object squares. These are 6" blocks, 2" centers. I'll be making at least 2 more rows. Then either a border or more blocks. Maybe I'll leave that decision to Jenn.

Modern Batik Challenge: Scrappy Squares from Goer

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

This month's Island Batik challenge was to go modern. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to play with my Planned Improv: Scrappy Squares technique in a larger scale.

I settled on a scrappy palette of pink, purple, navy, and turquoise, using the light Lilac fabric for my background. The Lilac was a limiting factor as I had only half a yard. (I ended up with about 8" x 10" of Lilac leftover.) Here are some of my feature fabrics:

Thoughtful Tuesday. To Do Tuesday. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Thoughtful Tuesday
This post was written by Boma from The April Journal many month's ago.  I commented on it on March 4, 2018.  Boma responded with prophetic words.  Via a situation which completely broke my heart, my loved one has been on a good road for near two months.  Reminds me of the Scripture:

In other words,

Boma writes that the Canaanite mother in this Bible accounting  (Matthew 15:21-28) never stopped pleading for her daughter despite the judgement and discouragement around ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Quick Project... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

It's hard to believe, but it's Friday again, and you know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  Let's get started!


Some friends of mine are opening a little shop this weekend, and they asked me if I'd like to add some of my pieces to their inventory.  Heck yes!  So I gathered up a bunch of pieces I had already finished, and took them down.  We also talked about a baby quilt, so I gathered up some scraps left over from another project ...

Cross My Heart Finish from Wedding Dress Blue

Quilting four small quilts in a day last week has really boosted my finish count.  DSC01152

It seems there is always a few minutes here and there to get those bindings stitched down.DSC01156

Cross My Heart in particular changes when the binding is added.  I wasn’t sure I liked the design at first, but had to have faith in the process–“Binding will help a lot,” I told myself.DSC01155

And, it did.DSC01153

Tutorial coming soon, probably some time in the next week.

TUTORIAL: Flight Path Baby Quilt from Wedding Dress Blue

Airplanes zoom all over this baby quilt.  I love that it IS NOT paper pieced.  Blessings on those of you who love paper piecing, and it definitely has its place in the quilting world, but it is possible to get angles without it.  The technique is a little different, so feel free to ask questions, and I will do my best.

Finished size: 36-1/2″ 36-1/2″



You may note that the block you see assembled below is not anywhere in the quilt.  That is because I lost all my block construction pictures and had ...

Playful and Colorful Renter Quilts! from Quilted Joy

A lot of quilts come into this studio, but what really gets everyone “oohing” and “ahhing” tends to be bright and colorful quilts. What can I say, I love color! Quilts are excellent spaces to explore and use color to the extreme. These quilts were chosen for this post because the quilters had some fun with color.

Rhonda's colorful batik sampler quilt, quilted at Quilted Joy

Rhonda made this quilt for a good friend. Just look at how the colors from these batik fabrics blend and contrast to create such an intricate and stunning pattern. Rhonda is actually relatively new to quilting and she is taking it by storm ...
