Camping Fun quilt pattern from Pieced Brain


"Camping Fun" is one of my newest patterns. It measures 58" x 70" and the blocks finish at 12". Easy to make, these blocks are perfect for large prints or fabrics you love but do not want to cut into tiny pieces.

The quilt on the photo features fabrics from the "May the Forest be with You" collection by Dear Stella. Here are some of the fabrics I used:






They are so cute! I had to show them off in large blocks...

Joyful quilt from Pieced Brain

Doesn't she make you want to smile all day? This cutie pie must be blessing her family and the life of those around her with her sunny face... I can almost hear the giggles and happiness with all the attention she is getting as she poses for this photograph. Her gorgeous outfit brings out the blue in her eyes and is exactly how I would dress a baby girl had I had one (only boys on this side of the Rockies). But wait, I am supposed to talk about the quilt she ...

Quilting teaches me.... Simplicity from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Introduction
I've been quilting for a lifetime, literally, and have come to the conclusion that we do what we love in part because it challenges us to learn. Anyone who quilts can attest to the idea of learning about fabric and supplies, blocks and backings, sewing and making. 
I'm exploring the other things that quilting teaches.

Great Grandsons' Quilts from Beehive Quilts

I have a new great grandson. His name is Gannon. I made him a quilt in less than a day. It was super easy, as I purchased a darling panel, added a couple of borders, quilted it, bound it and was done. Ta da. So cute.


I named it Octopus and More.


And the backing. Such beautiful paisley sharks and dolphins.


And my homemade label. I love making my own labels. I find free clip art that goes with the name of the quilt and insert it into a Word document. Then I type the information I want on the ...
