Twirls and Stripes {Finished Quilt} from Little Bunny Quilts

It's time to show off my finished vintage inspired quilt and compare it to its inspiration!

My finished quilt:

The original quilt:

After finishing the quilt, I decided to see if I had any Hobbs batting in my Island Batik Ambassador box that would be the right size for my 40 x 48 baby quilt -- and I was in luck! As an Island Batik Ambassador, I am provided with samples of various lines of Island Batik fabrics and Hobbs batting to use and share with you!

In my box, I had a crib size (45" x 60") cotton batting ...

Sunday Stitching Post #5 from Urban Quilter

I have stitched for at least 15 minutes per day on 11 out of 16 days so far this month (68%) so I am on track with my 15-minutes-to-stitch goal. As of yesterday I am at  54/75 days for the year which is 72%. Since the goal I set was to stitch 50% of the days I am doing well. 

I finished the T shirt quilt and the binding on the log cabin wheel-chair quilt. Since it is super-scrappy I am linking up today with Oh ScrapI have been working on quilting a bargello wall hanging that I ...

Getting A Lot Better from Quilting My Way

Today I felt a lot better than I have in over 2 weeks. My throat is the only issue. I can't seem to talk now, but that is the only issue so far.

I woke to find Katt gone. I figured she was off taking photos. She's leaving in the morning. So, I took her quilt and put it on the bed downstairs so she could see it when she came back.

It looks good on the spare bed. She seems really happy with it. It was one she picked and I worked on it while at retreat ...

Black And White Quilt Is Finished!! from Quilting My Way

The good news for today is that I was able to finish Katt's Black and White quilt. I haven't had the chance to take a photo of it, but I will do that tomorrow.

I worked on her quilt while she went to have lunch with her brother in Olympia. I was happy to see the two of them getting time together.

Once the quilt was finished it went into the wash. There was so much cat hair and dirt on it, that it needed to be washed.

Mom came about 3:30 pm and we went down ...

Madness Countdown - Finished with 1 Week to spare from Urban Quilter

Quilting detail of finished Tshirt Quilt
A bit ahead of the eve of March Madness 2019, which is the deadline I set for completing my husband's T-shirt quilt, I have finished the quilt.

The quilting was supposed to be done by last Wednesday, but it wasn't. I started quilting with a variegated thread and I didn't like how it looked so after part of a block was quilted I stopped and tore it out. I switched to a grey thread which looked much better on the different T shirts and finished quilting and binding the whole thing ...

Text It! Blog Hop from Stitchin at Home

Welcome to my stop on the Text It! blog hop, sharing the gorgeous and fun projects from Sherri Noel's (Rebecca Mae Designs) new book, Text It!
Sherri's book has 10 Quilt and Pillow patterns as well as 7 full sized alphabets so you can personalize any project or make something of your own inspired by the book.

Orphan Block Mini Quilt {A Little Finish} from Little Bunny Quilts

I made a mini!

This 12.5" block has been hanging around in my pile of orphan blocks since at least 2014. Yes, 2014! This block came to me as a swap block, when I participated in a monthly block swap on Flickr. (Takes me way back!)

I used many of the other blocks to make these baby quilts but this was one of the blocks whose color scheme wasn't exactly right.

I was just in the mood to do a little FMQ and burn through some batting scraps. I quilted this with white Aurifil in a meander. The ...

Stars at Play {Finished Mini Quilt} from Little Bunny Quilts

My latest mini quilt is complete! Making mini quilts was our "assignment" as Island Batik Ambassadors this month -- a fun and quick project was just the thing for me this month!

These fabrics all came in my latest Island Batik Ambassador goody box and I based my fabric pull around the mottled "peacock" accent fabric. As an Island Batik Ambassador, I am provided with samples of various lines of Island Batik fabrics to use and share with you! 

I decided to use our "in the pipeline" pattern Stars At Play in the mini quilt size for this project. I used ...

It’s FINISHED: Spider Web String from Jo's Country Junction

I am so excited to wrap this one up and put it in the finished pile.  I started this some time ago.  When we hosted a retreat in 2017 with Bonnie Hunter the Spider Web String was one of the quilts that the participants made.

Oops…there’s snow on the right hand lower part of the quilt…it’s so snowy here!!

You can find the free pattern for this quilt on Bonnie Hunter’s site HERE.  She did hers in a 6 x 7 setting.  I did mine larger.  It’s an  8 x 8 setting.  The quilt ...

My Day of Dusting off a Quilt Book from Stitchin at Home

It's my day too show an old a forgotten quilt book. This blog hop is being hosted by Beaquilter. The idea was to dust off, excuse me while I find the duster it's around here some place. Ahh dust bunnies be gone. Anyway the idea was to make a project from it.

After doing a big clean a few years ago, I thought I had given away my older quilt books. Imagine my surprise at finding a book from 1994. I think I kept it as I liked a couple of the projects in it.

1994 I think ...

Quilt Finish: Baby Friedman’s Quilt from Jo's Country Junction

I’m so thrilled to have this one done!!  The baby has been contemplating an early arrival….well not the baby as much as Kalissa’s recent tests and ultrasounds.  A week ago at an ultrasound little Mr. Friedman was already an over 8 pound baby.  That was with a month to go.  A C-section before the due date has been mentioned…for now we wait.  We need to keep that baby incubating as long as we can.

In light of all of that, it’s good I have this finished!!

I took a lot of pictures and hope to ...

Turnabout Patchwork - Blog Hop and Giveaway from Snowy Days Quilting

Welcome to my stop on the Turnabout Patchwork blog hop! I’m excited to share this book with you. If you like what you see, be sure to enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post.

stepping stones quilt turnabout patchwork book soul song batiks

Turnabout Patchwork is a new book by Teresa Mairal Barreu of Sewn Up. The whole book is based around “disappearing” blocks (like a disappearing nine patch). You sew a block, cut it up, and spin the parts to create something new. The result is a stunning quilt that’s much easier than it looks.

I was absolutely thrilled when Teresa allowed me the ...

Romance Table Runner from Snowy Days Quilting

tonga romance scrappy table runner

I have a finish! I’m really excited to share this with you. I finished the top and quilting ages ago, but only recently found the time to put on the binding.

tonga romance scrappy table runner

I made this runner from a charm pack of Tonga Romance. I cut each of the squares diagonally into quarters, and randomly sewed them into quarter square triangles. I kept the pieces by my machine and sewed it as a leader-ender project. I love how leaders and enders make it feel like you’re getting a free quilt without taking any extra time for sewing.

Hunter’s Star: FINISHED!! from Jo's Country Junction

Here it is people….Hunter’s Star and it’s completely finished.

I am THRILLED with it.  I started this at the same time I started the mystery.  I would sew the mystery clue and then sew on the Hunter’s Star quilt.  I had a secret hope that I could finish them both at the same time…and for the most part, I did.  I had Hunter’s Star into a top but abandoned that when the reveal for the mystery came out.  I finished the mystery and then loaded this on the frame right away.

I hurried to ...

Getaway Blog Hop {Dashing to the Chapel in Bazaar} from Little Bunny Quilts

I am so excited to share my quilt for the Getaway Blog Hop, hosted by Island Batik!

As I previewed two weeks ago, I am working with the Bazaar collection this time around:

This collection has a tropical feel! I love that many of the prints have orange featured!

I decided that I wanted to turn my half yards of this fabric into a queen sized quilt using our Dashing to the Chapel pattern (available on Etsy and PayHip!)

I used ten slightly larger scale prints (and the rainbow batiks) for the larger church dash blocks, and used six smaller ...

Blocked Rainbow {Finished Twin Quilt} from Little Bunny Quilts

My twin sized version of my Blocked Rainbow pattern is finally complete! This pattern was our QAL in Spring 2018 and I had made the throw size version in 2017 with fabrics from Benartex. I did actually finish this in December 2018, but we have been racing around nonstop since December 22nd between traveling for Christmas, packing, and moving. Things have finally settled down and I finally was able to snap pictures of this finish!

I made this version of the quilt using Island Batik fabrics and Kona Black as the background. I considered quilting this top myself but after ...

A Good Day Of Sewing from Quilting My Way

Today we didn't have plans - other than bowling.

Of course Patrick didn't like my stacks in the computer room, so I cleaned up my pile of genealogy and put them away Then I was about to go back downstairs to sew when I remembered we were going to move a few of my plants downstairs because of Sophie. She love my plants. So, I took a plant downstairs, and before I knew it, we were cleaning up the blue room.
