Introducing You to 'Ode to Joy', the Finished Quilt from Quilty Folk

 Ode To Joy is a true blue finish! The fourth finish of the year. I thoroughly enjoyed having this one in the hoop and I'm super happy about the finish. Just loving the unique look to this quilt!

Ode To Joy is finished!!
This quilt was started very impulsively one day when I wanted to make another big basket quilt. The applique flower motif was inspired from the darker blue fabric used right about the word 'joy'. Probably should have made the leaves in green, but I was wanting the result to be a nod to the Scandinavian vibe ...

Hands to Help Quilts from Art In Search

      Every year I try and complete some quilts for Sarah Craig's Hands to Help Challenge. This year, as last, I will send these 3 baby quilts to Little Lambs when completed. The great thing about them is they participate in a shipping service that lets me ship all them for one low price.
    This year, I made one baby girl and two baby boys. I used the same design to make things quicker and easier. For a while, I have been making a scrap quilt called Scrap Jar Stars as a leader ender. When I started it, I made ...

Retreat Report from The Cozy Quilter

 Christine and I left early for our quilting retreat with the Oxford Guild this past Friday because there was a winter storm coming and we wanted to get there and be set up before the snow started to fall.  The snow started in the afternoon and kept going all night.  In the morning there was almost a foot of snow (30cm for the metric folks).  We were all snowed in and loving it.  We did not lose power and we had our sewing machines and lots of fabric and projects on hand to work on.  It was a great weekend ...

Quilts Inspired by Books from Goer

I'm excited about the announcement for this week's Project QUILTING challenge: A Novel Project. The one big rule is that our projects need to be inspired by a book we've read. Easy peasy! So many options. (I hope you'll consider playing along and making a quilt between now and Sunday!)

In the challenge theme announcement post Trish shared a number of her book inspired projects. It got me thinking about which quilts I have made inspired by books. Here's a wrap-up of those projects.

Cottage Love Quilt Pattern - a Wall Hanging in Painterly Petals by Robert Kaufman! from Busy Hands Quilts

Today I'm sharing a bright and happy Cottage Love wall hanging quilt!  This is a quick and easy quilt pattern that you can make in a few hours for the Baby size, aka, Wall Hanging size.

Follow the Baby instructions to make the Wall Hanging size.  A hanging rod pocket is attached to this quilt for easy hanging, since I am thinking this fabric is not typical for a Baby quilt and is better suited as a Wall Hanging.

This bright watercolor quilt is made with fabrics from my stash - Painterly Petals by Robert Kaufman.  This is the older ...

A Baby Quilts Catch-Up from Sew........This Is My Blog

Since I took a break from blogging during the Pandemic, I missed sharing some of my finishes with you, so I decided to have a little Baby Quilts Show and Tell.

In 2018 I started making a few baby quilts to put back for the great-grands, and only got two finished.  

You can read about them here and here.

In 2019 I finished three more to put back.  I used a Zen Chic charm pack for this one and had a little fun with the border.

These two were made from a Hushabye Hollow layer cake from Moda.

Last year ...

WONDER WHY it took me so long! from Kwilty Pleasures

To finish and post about this quilt that began in  2021.
This was a "sewcial distance" challenge
between Kim Hensley and me.

I sewed it at the beach but it sat for awhile.
Kim was learning to use her new
INNOVA longarm and needed some practice quilts.

I was the girl for her! I have quilts just waiting!
Her new business is Happily Every Quilting.
She's still a full time VIP for Nationwide but
when she retires in a few years, this will be her
FUN full time job!
She is a super Disney Fan, has a family season ...

Two Finishes for the Bazaar! from The Cozy Quilter

I have not one but two finishes to share this week!  I quilted the baby quilt that I made for the church bazaar this week using light yellow thread and my walking foot to create a rectangular grid.  The backing is donated minke in light green which goes perfectly with the colours on the front  of the quilt.  The binding is made from the same Kaffe fabric that was used to make the spinning four patch blocks. 

Excuse my squinting...the sun was in my eyes!

I had 8 spinning four patches leftover after making the quilt so I decided ...

Good Morning Baby Quilt in Dream! from Busy Hands Quilts

Today's fun quilty share is a Good Morning quilt in the Baby size!  The blending of bright rainbow colors with gray gives way to a modern baby quilt that will keep the precious baby goggle-eyed and entertained!  

Good Morning is a great pattern to use your scraps of scraps or jelly rolls, or use yardage of five colors to create an ombre effect.  Both methods are included in the quilt pattern, along with all of the quilt sizes, and strip piecing, as well.  I love to spoil you with all of those important details!  :)

Rag Quilts and Dinosaurs from ~ CowgirlQuilter ~

 I've had a pretty productive day!  YAY!  Saturday night I got all 48 blocks sewn for the Dallas Cowboy rag quilt that I am making for a customer.  

Sunday afternoon I got it all sewn together!  Now I just need to clip the seams and get it washed.  I will probably clip the seams while watching Everleigh through the day.  I can do that while sitting in the recliner.  She is such a good little girl and not hard at all to keep up with.  

I didn't get pics of them but I made 2 I guess you ...

Today I'm sharing a Formation quilt in the Baby size.  This quilt is made with Kona Cottons in Blues from my stash, using the triangle backing fabric as a guide.  Formation is a quick and easy quilt pattern that includes 5 sizes and is fat quarter friendly.

The Formation quilt pattern is available in the Busy Hands Quilts shop.

You know I love to spoil you with all of the quilt sizes, and Formation is no exception!  Included are instructions for five sizes.  I love doing all of the math to figure out the sizes ...

Design Wall Monday - September 5, 2022 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

Good Morning Quilters!

Another baby quilt is this week’s project.  I have several baby quilts that are finished except for the final binding.  I chose this one to finish for a special baby - my first great grandson!  My Granddaughter Alexis and her husband Blake are expecting a baby boy in November.  The baby shower will be next Sunday afternoon.  

Here is a picture of the front side, with the binding yet to be hand sewn to the back:

I love the old time pictures of little children on the featured fabric.  I used some fabrics that have been in ...

More Hooking and A New Quilt Underway. from The Cozy Quilter

My friend, Christine, and I used to get together every week to sew before the pandemic.  We have recently started doing this again as time allows.  This past week, we cut out and sewed the HST's for the Tesselate Quilts "Whistle Stop" quilt along. Here are my HST's laid out for 1/4 of the quilt. I thought that I would easily be able to find some fabric in my stash to use as a background for this quilt...but no.  I tried various shades of green, gray, blue and even white, but nothing worked. to ...

Two Simple Baby Quilts from Angel Scraps Quilting

 I have not been quilting very much so far this year!  I just haven't been able to get in the mood to work on them.

But, I finally finished two simple baby quilts for two sisters who were having babies.  One was for a boy born in March and the other is for a girl who is due in September.

Both quilts consist of a top that is one piece of fabric.  Both are Winnie the Pooh themed!

Here is the boy quilt made for Max:

The girl's quilt made for Aliza:

This one consists of pre-cuts from ...

Hand Picked Rainbow Baby Quilt + Quilt Kits! from Busy Hands Quilts

Today I'm sharing the Hand Picked rainbow quilt!  This cute quilt might be one of my favorite quilts that I've ever made.  It's looks scrappy (though it's a single fabric collection).  It's a rainbow.  It's cute.  It checks all of the boxes!!

The Hand Picked quilt pattern works great for using up your scrap bins or precuts.  The pattern is fairly quick with strip piecing, too.

The Hand Picked quilt pattern is available in the Busy Hands Quilts shop.

And ...  we have quilt kits too!  Each quilt kit will make two quilts - a Baby ...

Two Pieced Quilt Backs and a Finished Quilt from The Cozy Quilter

I started the week off with all of my batik fabrics on the floor outside my sewing room, sifting though the pile to find the right fabrics to include in the pieced backing for my Quilt for a Survivor of a Residential School.  I also had 4 6 1/2 inch blocks leftover from the workshop on Traditional Variations which also made it onto the back.  I used up several larger chunks of fabric, inserting bits and pieces as necessary to make it the size I needed.  Here is the backing on my design wall, ready for pin basting and ...

Alpacas! (sewing and knitting too) from The Cozy Quilter

I finished knitting the whale baby facecloth this week and wrapped it up with these other two cloths I made earlier to give to a friend's new grandson. I'm pleased the pictures show up well on each cloth.  I must be getting better at making these as there was only the odd stitch to unknit...not whole rows like I used to have to do. 

I finished making the rest of the heart blocks and added sashing to the blocks to make the hearts float.  I am not adding an outside border as it is the perfect size ...

Hooking, Knitting, and I started something new... from The Cozy Quilter

 I made some rug hooking progress on my class project. The sheep is now done, including the tail and the legs.  The wool strips are not trimmed yet so the wonkiness in the legs and tail is due to that.  Next, I will work on the flowers.  Then, there will be lots of sky and grass to fill in.  

I just have the last border to do on the whale baby facecloth--I had hoped to finish it today but we got busy with gardening and then doing other jobs inside so I did not sit down to knit. I should ...

Blue Scraps, a Baby Quilt and Rughooking from The Cozy Quilter

This past week flew by but I did manage to find a bit of time to spend in my sewing room.  I made two sets of selvage blocks for the rainbow scrap challenge this month --navy and bright blue. It's so much easier to make these blocks now that my selvages are all sorted by colour. 

I quilted this baby quilt for our church Christmas bazaar--the fabrics were all donated to the sewing group--I added the blue fabric squares from my stash as well as the light blue and white striped binding. The sailor fabric has a piece of ...
