Cozier Looking Than I Thought It Might Be from Quilty Folk

 Baby quilt is done, washed up and already gift wrapped! Big, big sigh here. It was on the get-done-before-Thanksgiving list and I didn't want to have to bump it off till Christmas or try and mail it through the USPS during the holidays.

Baby quilt is finished!
It's got a slightly different look than what I normally do for baby quilts, but it still seems to work. Definitely turned out to be cozier looking than I ever expected.  Crossing my finger baby's mama will like this one, though thankfully baby Ellie won't care a whit!

It's Always Better To Have the Prep Work Behind You from Quilty Folk

I've been busy, busy. Trying to get lots of applique prep done over the last weekend while my daughter was away on vacation. It was waaay past time to pull out Coronacrazy and just get moving on it. While the centerpiece has been done since January, the only thing accomplished since that particular push was the foundation work for this applique border. Letting it sit around and gather dust was only making me feel guilty and even more apprehensive about how it was going to turn out.

Will have to stitch down the corners later
The thing is, the ...

Odds and Ends from Quilty Folk

I'm slowly getting a little bit of quilting done on Bullseye Medallion. I say 'slowly', because it seems like I've been skipping every other night lately. Oh well. At least there's something happening with it even if it doesn't look like much!

Hand quilting Bullseye Medallion
It's a long story, but the short version is that I got totally distracted by a squirrel last week. It started out with a mad dash through the orphaned/abandoned blocks totes and ended up being eleven doll quilts. 

Little doll quilts
These simple little orphan quilts were gifted ...

One of the Baby Quilts is Finished! from Quilty Folk

This baby quilt was finished up right before I left town to spend time at my oldest sons in Oregon. Though it wasn't gifted until I returned home, it felt really good to attach the label and check it off the list.

Baby quilt finished up!
It has a sort of busy, young vibe to it, so hopefully will grow well with baby. My baby quilts usually end up somewhere around 42-44 inches wide and 46 plus inches long. Plenty of quilt to be used in a toddler bed.

My little brother has gotten more baby quilts from me ...

October UFO's and PomPoms! from The Cozy Quilter

I finally made my September block for the Elgin Piecemakers Guild Comfort quilt project this past week! We were each to make a bird block with a gray background.  We had plans to meet outside in September in someone's backyard but it poured rain the night of our meeting and it got cancelled so now, the bird blocks will be handed in with the October blocks this month.  I had already made all of my blocks for the rest of the year in the spring so this was the last one to make for 2021.  I used a Riley ...

Sunnyside Baby Quilt in Aqua and Gray! from Busy Hands Quilts

I have the cutest Sunnyside baby quilt to share with you today!  I made this quilt a few months ago for display in the local quilt shop.

Sunnyside is a fun way to feature two colorways.  I've made the Throw size in Yellow and Gray, which you can see right here.

All the Sizes!

The Sunnyside quilt pattern includes 6 sizes - Baby, Lap, Throw, Twin, Queen, and King - so you'll use the pattern more than once.  I like to include both the Lap and Throw ...

Sure I will Finish That! from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 About once a year, one of my longarm clients will bring me a quilt top they made that they just don't want to finish.  They know I donate lots of quilts every year and figure I will finish it and give it a new home.  Recently I received a very cute little quilt top...

I finished up sewing the binding last night just in time to share it with you.

It features some adorable owl and the pussycat fabric.

And some fun paper boat fabric.

I love the happy little moons out in the outer borders and orange highlights ...

Ziggity Zaggity Baby Quilt from Modern Sunbonnet Sue

I started another baby quilt. I love when new babies are born because it gives me a chance to make another baby quilt. One of my nieces, I have several, had a baby in July. I plan to gift a baby quilt at Christmas. I’m using a pattern from a 2008 baby Quilts magazine by […]

Happy Little Quilt Finish from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 Happy Friday!

I get to cross another finished quilt off my list.  Yahoo!! This one isn't very big but I think it turned out pretty darn adorable!

The inspiration for this project was the little moon/star panel bit that came in a bag of scraps.  I came across it when I was digging through my gray scraps.  It is a funny shade of gray and coral so I wasn't sure I would have the proper shades of scraps.  Ha!

I was able to quickly confirm I had plenty.

I dug though my scraps and cut everything into ...

Prism Baby Quilt in Through the Woods! from Busy Hands Quilts

Today I'm sharing another Prism quilt with you - this one in the Baby size!

All the Sizes!

Prism includes 5 sizes - Baby, Throw, Twin, Queen, and King.  The pattern includes some tips on directional fabrics since the quilt is assembled in quadrants, and you want to keep your owls all facing the same direction.  This is the quilt I made to test the pattern, and I hadn't considered directional prints until some of my owls ended up upside down!  :(

Oh Those Fabrics!

This quilt is ...

Making Time in the Week For the Post is Sometimes the Hardest Part from Quilty Folk

Well here it is, another go at a baby quilt. After the last disastrous effort, I focused more intensely on gathering a cohesive grouping of fabrics. Something happy and cozy looking and at least a little bit girlish. As the days went by, fabrics were pulled out and other, better fabrics included until the stack had the right vibe.

Blocks for the baby quilt

Since that's where things went wrong last time, I calculated this step to be the most helpful overall. You would think that I {of all people} would never take a good color palette for granted ...

Using up the Charm Packs from The Cozy Quilter

At one time, I would purchase precuts when I liked a certain fabric line or sometimes people gave them to me as gifts, and I may have won one or two in a door prize draw at a guild meeting.  I have been working over the last few years to use these precuts up so I don't have any left in my stash.  I have had a farm themed charm pack on my sewing table for a few months now so I could look at it and decide what to make with it.  This past week, while talking to ...

Some quilting and sewing therapy from A Prim and (not so) Proper Quilter

Labor Day weekend always gets my hopes up for quilting. 

Friday, the Hubs had some outpatient surgery scheduled. It happened to fall on my day off. This time, I wasn’t allowed to be with him behind the big doors or help him when it was time to be discharged. That was a bit disorienting. 

Once we were home, he relaxed for a little bit and I got to sew. New great-granddaughter is coming any minute and I needed to meet my goal of one quilt for each day of the week. Mission accomplished! You’ve already seen the main ...

A Friday Almost Finish from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 I was worried I wouldn't have a finish again this week.  And even though it is late Friday, I did get the flimsy finished for my baby quilt.

This quilt was started using this little panel piece.  It came in a scrap bag from a friend years ago. I simply pulled a bunch of scraps to make an easy patchwork.  

The colors in this are actually more of a coral and the gray has a lot of brown in it.  I struggled a bit to find the right colors of scraps.  The grays I had were too blue and ...

Grandpa's Barn Quilted Wall Hanging in Lauren! from Busy Hands Quilts

Today I'm sharing a Grandpa's Barn quilt in the Baby size, but I'll call it the Wall Hanging size since it's not made with fabrics suited for a baby!

I recently finished a batch of small quilts to be displayed in my local quilt shop, Tangled Threads.  This is one of the quilts.

Those Pretty Fabrics!

My Grandpa's Barn quilt pattern was selected to highlight a really pretty fabric collection called Lauren.  The collection includes mauves, greens, browns, and tans in ...

Seeds for a Scrap Quilt from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 I am always on the lookout for what I call "seeds" for a scrap quilt.  I think of seeds as the inspiration that sets me off on my next scrap quilt.  While I was digging through a bag of scraps, I found a tiny seed for a baby quilt.

I found this cute little piece that measures about 9" x 10".

I got lucky and found this weird dark taupe solid that I can use to frame the piece and bring it out to 12 1/2" square.

Then I plan on floating that panel in some 3.5" squares ...

Today I'm sharing a bright and happy rainbow Skip to My Lou in the Baby size!  

Precut Friendly Quilt Pattern

Skip to My Lou is a precut friendly quilt pattern - you can use charm packs or layer cake squares, or of course scraps from your stash would work just as easily.  Just cut the number of squares in the size indicated in the quilt pattern. 

After you've selected your print squares, choose two solid fabrics that set off the squares.  This quilt is ...
