Gifts for My Family from The Cozy Quilter

A few months before our trip to Scotland and England, I decided to make several Quilty gifts for my family member that we would be visiting on our trip.  This Christmas star table topper was given to my cousin and his wife.  I used a Jaybird quilts pattern to make it. 


The backing is Christmas fabric I had in my stash. 


I made 6 wide open zippered pouches for various cousins as well. All of the fabrics were in my stash---obviously, I have too much fabric...





Canada themed pillowcases were given to my uncle and some other cousins. I bought ...

Nolan's Baby Quilt from Sew........This Is My Blog

So much has been going on in my life this year that quilty goals and blog-writing keep getting pushed to the bottom of the "to do" list. There's no way to make up for lost time, but it's never too late to start again, so here I am.  I've been making the quilty part a priority  lately. Now it's time to blog about it.

A brand new great-nephew appeared on the scene in January. Knowing that bears were part of the nursery theme I chose to make a bear paw quilt in nursery colors as his ...

Some of This; Some of That 8/11/2019 from Quilting Reader's Garden

Finished quilting that top - already delivered. I almost kept this scrap bag quilt. But it's going to St. Anne's (SA). Two St. Anne's members gave me tops to add borders to: This first one is a design which two SA members came up with when I handed them a bag of scraps.

Susan's Suitcase from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

What is better than fabric shopping and lunch with a friend? Well . . . 


A few months ago, when my neighbor, Susan, and I (Teri) enjoyed such a day, she told me she had a suitcase that she thought I might enjoy looking through: it was filled with treasures made by her aunt and her mom. I couldn't wait to see what stitched stories were inside!

Remember when we used to put these precious
embroidered bibs on our babies?

The suitcase was filled with bibs, dresses, bonnets, congratulatory cards, shoes, and even a quilt. Susan's aunt, Mary McQuilkin, made the ...

Nature Lover - Butterflies quilt from Pieced Brain

I am releasing today my new pattern "Nature Lover". The quilt measures 47" x 47" and the blocks finish at 8". Naturally, it is made with batiks and these are by Timeless Treasures. They are so beautiful!


Although I designed it with batiks, Nature Lover would look fantastic made with scraps of your favorite fabrics, print or solids, don't you think? I have already begun pulling out my scraps - but batiks again! The butterflies are machine applique' using the blanket stitch. The block above is not appliqued yet - I do it when all the blocks are fused.

The wide ...

A Little Stash Finish from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

Every once in a while, I come across some fabric in my stash that I decide just needs to go.

I recently came across a half yard of some numbers fabric.  To complement it, I added in a bunch of stray solids that had all been used in previous projects.

That is all I needed to get some blocks started!


The blocks consisted of a simple 9 patch made from 2.5" squares.  
I then framed those with some 2" strips.



I now have a colorful 39 x 49" quilt.



I decided to sash the blocks with some black and ...

Nautical Baby Quilt Done from The Cozy Quilter


I spent much of the day Friday quilting this baby quilt that had been sitting around for several weeks, waiting to be finished.  As you can see above, I quilted wavy lines with navy blue thread through the centre section and straight lines with orange thread at the top and bottom.   The corner triangles have more wavy lines sewn with orange thread.   I added navy blue binding and finished hand sewing it today.


The orange and white fabric was purchased at QuiltCon in February.


The flannel backing has whales on it to match the whales on the front of the ...

Stitching Updates from The Cozy Quilter

My daughter has been working on her Prague cityscape quite a bit in the last week or two and sent me a picture of the finished piece this afternoon.  There are lots of beautiful colours in this picture.


She has finished several cities now.  I may need to introduce her to my framer so she can get them framed and on display!  I am not sure which city she will be stitching next.

My Frank Lloyd Wright counted cross stitch picture saw a few more stitches added this week as we travelled in the car.  Last week, it looked like ...

Baby elephant pinwheel quilt from Granny Maud's Girl

My lovely neighbours are expecting a grandson any day now, and they asked me to make the new baby a quilt. I do not normally sew on demand, but I was happy to make an exception for them. We live in the best neighbourhood. The group of residents around me swap not only cups of sugar but also everything from stockpots to crayfish, and we spend a lot of time together socially.

Pinwheel baby quilt made by Granny Maud's Girl

The colours roughly fade from light to dark. Roughly.

From my stash, a blue and white elephant print caught Mrs Neighbour’s eye, and a raindrop print I ...

I have a finish to show you!  This is a custom baby quilt made for a long-time friend from my childhood.  Aren't the fabrics just the sweetest ever?!?

Baby Quilt Top in a Day from The Cozy Quilter

On the last Friday in March, I attended a workshop to make a quilt top with a panel.  I had a panel in my stash that I thought would make a great baby quilt, but alas, I did not have any co-ordinating fabrics to go with it.  I know that is hard to believe, but it is the honest truth!  So, I searched through my stash again to see if I had anything else that I could use for the class without having to make a purchase.   I found the ship in a bottle fabric as well as some other ...

Giving Up On Perfection from Quilty Folk

This past week has been a busy, busy week for sandwiching and pinning quilts. First, I sewed together three 'frankenbats' out of leftover strips of batting. All because the roll of batting is getting very skinny and also perhaps in an effort to be frugal? Whatever. I have very mixed emotions about the results.

The Baby Girl Quilt
On the baby girl quilt, I didn't notice the batting shifting at all. All the wonk in this quilt is because there was just too much ease in the long coin strips. It was something I was quite prepared to deal ...

Baby Quilts and a {Sanity Saving} Random Sampler Attempt from Quilty Folk

Making baby quilts is generally fun and easy peasy. This time I allowed it to stress me out a little because I am making 'for a special someone'. Not that I asked them for specific colors etc., but still, I'd like to feel that they will appreciate the final product.

Baby boy quilt
I used this photo as inspiration for my baby 'boy' quilt, but you know me. I had to add in a printed fabric somewhere. I also changed the look of the star and went with a sawtooth style instead of the pointier version seen in the ...

A gift and an order for two more... from ~ CowgirlQuilter ~

I pieced this baby quilt over the weekend.  Andrew's first cousin on his dad's side has a baby girl due any day.  I still have a good relationship with most of my former in-laws and family.  LOL!  Anyway, his cousin Chris is just a couple years younger than Andrew and he's such a nice young man.  I wanted to make a quilt for the new baby.  I think they are inducing her on Thursday the last that I heard. 
A dear friend of mine sent me the Wing Clipper Ruler for flying geese.  I really wanted to ...

Baby Quilt Progress from Life in the Scrapatch



The quilt top is done!



This block is the 



In the end I did not follow the layout shown in the book.


I opted for a more graphic, modern version 
and used the extra units I made in the corners of the borders.

So I am calling this quilt 
Starry Lanes 
because the setting creates an elongated diagonal star.

I am going to leave this on my design wall while I think
about how to quilt it
as I catch up on some blocks
