Custom Quilting Seaside Baby Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party! from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished {or Not!} Friday where you can share what you're working on and see what others have been making!

Another 2018 Finish is custom quilting a beautiful Seaside baby quilt made by Andrea.  


This quilt inspired my own purchase of the Seaside fabric collection which I showed you last week in Love Multiplied.  This is one of the cutest fabric collections I've ever seen.  


More of that cuteness!  The quilting is my favorite swirl design.


The beautiful backing is sailboats and lighthouses and girls on white.

Sweet Things from RobynsPatch

One way to use up ‘left-over’ fabric. A while back an inspiration for tackling the pile of fabric scraps came from “Successful Scrap Quilts from Simple Rectangles’ by Judy Turner and Margaret Rolfe. Decisions, decisions – made easy. From then … Continue reading

Postcard From Sweden Baby Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party! from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished {or Not!} Friday where you can share what you're working on and see what others have been making!

Another 2018 Finish - a Postcard From Sweden Baby Quilt made with blocks leftover from previous Postcard quilts I've made.  I consider this my last PFS quilt since I rarely make custom quilts anymore, so I won't be stocking the 36 Kona Cottons that are included in this quilt.



The backing is a mottled gray solid from Craftsy that is very versatile as backing since it fits so many quilt themes.

2018 Roundup from The Cozy Quilter

Here we are on the eve of a new year and it is time to look back over the past year to see what I have accomplished.  There seemed to be a lot of babies being born this year so many of my finishes are baby quilts, most of which have been given away.

January

This quilt top, Fancy Forest, was made in 2016 but it took me a while to find the right backing, so I got it back from the long arm quilter in January 2018 and added the binding.  This one is staying in my my quilt ...

The Last Quilt Finish of 2018 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

This post is about a long overdue baby quilt that I had a fight with.  But I won!  Our physical trainer, Kelsie, had a baby last year, and now is pregnant for her second child.  The baby quilt she is just now getting is below: The trouble started when I selected a flannel backing for this baby quilt.  When I tried to quilt it, the trouble began.  It stretched, and lumped on the back - not

Jolly Bar Meringue QAL with FQS from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

I recently had the opportunity to participate in another of the Fat Quarter Shop's Shortcut Quilt Series.  I love these simple patterns that use precuts so I joined in immediately!





  In a previous post, I shared this photo showing my fabric choices and the Creative Grids ruler needed for this project.  This pattern uses Jolly Bars, a Fat Quarter Shop exclusive.  






I chose the Hop, Skip and a Jump! collection by American Jane.  I have always loved the vintage feel of this Moda designer.




Today I can finally show my finished quilt. The Jolly Bar precut was the perfect ...

Jungle Babies 4 For Isaiah from Angel Scraps Quilting

I made a simple baby quilt over the long Thanksgiving weekend.  This one was made for a brand new great nephew born the week before.  He's the only Isaiah I've ever known, except for Mr. Edwards    from "Little House on the Prairie".  I love the name, especially because its Biblical.  In fact, I had to look in my Bible to make sure I was spelling it right!



This is the FOURTH quilt I have made using the Jungle Babies fabric!  The first one I made was for my oldest grandson over 11 years ago!  I picked up pieces ...

Another Baby Quilt from The Cozy Quilter


At last weekend's sewing day, I started making plus sign blocks with 30's prints for a baby quilt.  The pattern for the blocks came from Cheryl Brickey and Paige Alexander's book, Modern Plus Sign Quilts. In the book, they made a table runner with their blocks but I decided to make a baby quilt. 


There are two blocks from each print--I thought it would be fun to play a matching game with the quilt when the baby gets a bit older.  (There is no baby in mind for this quilt--it is another one of those baby quilts ...

Elgin Piecemakers Sewing Day from The Cozy Quilter


Twice a year, the Elgin Piecemaker's Guild has a sewing day at a local church.  This past Saturday, 13 quilters gathered and sewed all day long!  We had a couple of ironing stations and a place for cutting fabric in the kitchen as well as 13 tables for sewing around the room.  It was fun to see what everyone was working on as the day progressed.


Fran was working on a jelly roll rug to match her shirt!


Heather is attempting to use up her Christmas scraps for a paper pieced courthouse step quilt.

Hidden Trees quilt from Pieced Brain

This is Hidden Trees, the baby quilt I made with Christmas-themed flannels, just published in the November/December issue of Quilty magazine. It measures 38" x 46" and the blocks finish at 8". The alternating block is easy to make and adds lots of movement to the design, a perfect match to the fabric featured on the other blocks, filled with vintage toys for little children.

For this quilt, I chose the Christmas Joys flannels collection by Maywood Studio and love how it turned out. Here are the fabrics I used:







These flannels are so soft - I know of a ...

Cozy Fabrics- How to Make a Nine Patch Frame Block Tutorial from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello Makers, 

What have you been sewing up lately? I have been sewing with the sweetest new collection from AGF Studio called Little Clementine! This collection is so adorable with all of Little Clementine's fury friends and cute cozy keepsakes. One of my favorite prints from the collection is called "Mr. Penny Bubblegum", a cycling, scarf wearing bear! I incorporated him in the center of my  Nine Patch Frame Block pictured below! All I keep thinking is how cute  this block would be turned into a baby quilt?  In this block we used the corner triangle method quite a ...

Not Precarious Baby Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party! from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is a Not Precarious baby quilt in 90 Kona Cotton solids!  This quilt is made from the second set of strip bargello panels which I made for the Stash Statement Book Hop by Kelly of My Quilt Infatuation.  You can read about the Precarious quilt I made with the first set of panels over here.



This quilt, Not Precarious, is a play on words - the first quilt was stacked precariously, and this one the colors are hung securely, not precariously!

Baste Away, Baste Away, Baste Away … from RobynsPatch

After having explored and had a go any the many ways a quilt can be basted, I seem to stick to my ‘go to’ favourite method – spray basting using ‘505’. It is quick, doesn’t add weight to the quilt, … Continue reading

Guess Whoooo is Here? from The Cozy Quilter


A colleague at work is having her second baby any time now and her last day of work is tomorrow.  I started this quilt last week and finished it up on Tuesday night.  I brought it to work today to give it to her.  I included washing instructions!  Mom was thrilled with the quilt and promised to send me pictures of the new baby and her big sister with the quilt.


The name of the quilt, "Guess Whooo is Here?" came from the owls on the white fabric.  The quilting is a wavy cross hatch.  I used some solid yellow ...
