A Quilt Finish: Brick House from Jo's Country Junction

I got my Brick House quilt done…at least that’s what I’m calling this quilt…

It uses “bricks” or 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ rectangles to make it.

If you’re been following along with the blog you know that this originated from a UFO that a blog reader sent.  I made about triple the amount of blocks than what was sent.

It’s an easy quilt to make…really good for a beginner.  I tried to take lots of picture so I could talk to you a little about color…

Notice in the picture below ...

Rail Fence Baby Quilt {Finished Quilt} from Little Bunny Quilts

Yes, another finish to share today!

When I was working on my Hattie's Choice quilt that I showed off yesterday, I also prepared the binding for and sewed the binding onto my already quilted Rail Fence baby quilt.

For this quilt, I used red solid cotton for the binding since I have almost no fabric left from this bundle!


Since this quilt was already quilted and trimmed, it was quick work to add the binding to this quilt.


I also hand stitched the binding to the backing on this quilt -- this might be the "new norm" for quilting during ...

Hattie's Choice {Finished One Die Wonder Quilt} from Little Bunny Quilts

When last I posted about this quilt, I thought that I would be adding a border -- and then I started digging through my Island Batik stash only to realize that I only had one half yard of purple and no other pink or purple to use to finish this quilt! Oops! So instead, I decided to quilt this quilt as is -- a bitty baby quilt -- and use a neutral dot batik for the backing.

As an Island Batik Ambassador, I am provided with samples of various lines of Island Batik fabrics, Aurifil thread, Accuquilt products, and Hobbs Batting to use ...

A Quilt Finish: Jasper’s Baby Quilt from Jo's Country Junction

Saturday of last week I was suppose to have Buck’s kids and Sunday was supposed to be baptism for Jasper.  We cancelled it all due to Covid-19.  I was some sad but decided rather than sit around and be sad, it was time to really work on Jasper’s baby quilt.  During the week I have cut the sashing pieces out….I so wanted to get this done.

Karl was home this day and I told him…I really want to get this done.  Do everything you can to get me going on it.  He did great.  A couple ...

Give it Away Challenge from Stitchin at Home

Time for number 5 of  Project Quilting hosted by Kim of Persimon Dreams.
Kim thinks that 'quilters are a generous lot' and that we give from the heart without thinking of financial reward when we give.
The purpose for this challenge is simple 'Give it Away'. Whether to another person an organization or charity. I knew instantly who was going to be the recipent of my project.

If you read my post from Put a Heart on it  you know I had a friend who was in hospice. She has since passed away I am also friends with her older ...

A Quilt Finish: Wild Child Variation from Jo's Country Junction

I finished a quilt.  I got looking and couldn’t believe that this is only my first one for the year.  How can it be March and I’ve only finished one??  I know the answer, Rosie…and cross stitch…and grandkids.

It’s all good and I don’t mind a bit but seriously, it’s hard to believe that I only have one finish for the year.

This one is made from my leftover Wild Child blocks.

You might remember that I made a Wild Child quilt for one of my childcare kiddos for Christmas.  Here is that ...

Not My Day For Bowling from Quilting My Way

Today was a busy day of getting stuff done. I worked on my laundry.

I finally got my embroidery framed. I had to make sure that the bleeding stopped. Once I got it done - after 2 days of washing it - I had to get it framed.


Framing is a 2 person job. I get it stretched and then Patrick does the cleaning and framing.

Then I worked on getting some blocks for Patrick to work on. He's so good at figuring out where blocks go in a quilt. I hate doing that part, and he's really good at ...

Birds in the Air x 4 from Stitchin at Home

Project Quilting 11.4 challenge is to use the 'Birds in the Air' block.  It’s two sizes of triangles, combined for a square block you must either use or reinterpret this traditional block. I did indeed reinterpret the block and it meets the requirements of two sizes of triangles. I used four blocks in my table topper.

I was short on time and only started making the topper yesterday at 9:30 AM. I just finished binding it this morning. I don't think I have ever made anything this fast before. Not bad considering I wasn't sure ...

It's A Finishing Day! from Quilting My Way

This morning I was getting ready for our meeting day. I had to get my floss box and take it with me to Brazilian Embroidery. I wanted to have it to figure out what colors I wanted to do for the "next" project. In other words, I was hoping to start another project after I finished my Roses in the Winter piece.

I got there around 10:15 am. Then we sat and talked about what classes we wanted to take for Seminar. I was happy to see Sandy wanted to take the same classes I did. I got all ...

Team Colours 11.2 from Stitchin at Home

It's week two in Project Quilting at Persimon Dreams 11.2 Team Colours. I didn't do the first challenge which was numbers, none of ideas I had were working. However when I saw the second one I knew I would be doing something with my favourite teams colours. I am a Toronto Blue Jays fan and have been from day one, April 7, 1977.

Bring on the blues and white, their uniforms are white, and blue ( from powder blue to a dark blue ).

assorted colour strips in various widths stitched in a fan shape 

After sewing the strips ...

Year in Review {2019 Finishes} from Little Bunny Quilts

While this list might not be as long as last year's list, I am very proud of how many of these finishes were longer-term WIPs! I have marked the quilts that were on my WIP list in January with an asterisk.

1.* Blocked Rainbow: This was technically finished in 2018, but I didn't share it on the blog until after we moved in January.


2.* Dashing to the Chapel: This was made for an Island Batik blog hop featuring our Dashing to the Chapel pattern.


3. Stars at Play Mini Quilt: This was my February Island Batik project ...

Millie’s Row Quilt: A Quilt FINISH!! from Jo's Country Junction

I’ve had a busy week but I managed to get the quilt off the frame and get it bound.  Here it is….

I am happy with it.

This all started kind of impromptu.  I had left overs from the quilts I’ve recently finish and rather than put them in the orphan block basket I decided to try to see if I could use them up….

There are pieces from my Hourglass quilt.  I actually had to make four more blocks.  Find that quilt HERE.


There are pieces for my Wild Child quilt.  Find that HERE.

Two Quilts for Be a Santa to a Senior from Snowy Days Quilting

guy quilts

My local quilt guild is all about giving back to the community. Throughout the year, we have different local charities we support. When they announced that we would be making lap quilts for Be a Santa to a Senior, I immediately knew I wanted to join in.

I like quilts that use a good variety of fabrics, so I got to thinking. If I made two quilts, I could choose twice as many fabrics and still avoid being left with scraps! So I headed to my local quilt shop and chose 21 coordinating batiks. My only ...

Jelly Glazed Hearts Tablerunner {Fat Quarter Shop Hop} from Little Bunny Quilts

Today I am participating in the Jelly Glazed Hearts tablerunner blog hop with the Fat Quarter Shop! Check out their post on the Jolly Jabber here!

For this project, I picked a mini jelly roll of the new Alma line from the Ruby Star Society and picked one of cream prints for the background fabric.


I picked out eight strips from the jelly roll for my blocks and paired them up.


Next came chopping my strip sets into the correct lengths for each block.


Then I made the heart blocks and added the setting triangles to each block.



This is ...

Finished Quilt: Rainbow Talkin' Turkey from Snowy Days Quilting

rainbow talkin turkey quilt

If you caught my last post about how I organize my quilt projects, you may have noticed that I’ve fallen pretty far behind in sharing my finishes here on the blog. I’m planning to remedy that over the next year, and I thought I’d start today with my rainbow Talkin’ Turkey quilt. The pattern is from Bonnie Hunter’s book String Fling.

I started this quilt at a fantastic workshop with Bonnie. I was going to guess the workshop was in 2017, but my blog shows it was actually ...

Patchwork Christmas Stocking Remix {Fat Quarter Shop Fun} from Little Bunny Quilts

Today I am participating in the Fat Quarter Shop's "pattern remix" for their Patchwork Christmas Stocking pattern!


Click here to see the original post and pattern! Click here to check out the other "remixes" of this pattern!

For my stockings, I used the same instructions with the exception that the pieced and quilted part of my stocking uses slightly larger quarter square triangles made from charm squares rather than half square triangles.


For my fabrics, I used an older set of 5" squares from my stash featuring the older Amanda Murphy line, Nordic Holiday. My background fabric is from ...

Quilt Finish: Wild Child from Jo's Country Junction

Wild Child is finished!!  That means I have the 5 childcare Christmas quilts finished.  I’m so happy.  I feel a bit freed up.


I’ve made this quilt before…  The one below was done in the colors from the book.  The book I’m referring to String Fling by Bonnie Hunter.

WildChild-2

In the book she uses a teal color for the alternate blocks and a floral print for the border.

WildChild-5
This is what I ended up with…polka dot backing, the floral and pink borders.  I like that version but I’ll admit, I like this one even better ...

Faceted Churn Dash {Finished Wall Hanging} from Little Bunny Quilts

If you are in our Honey, Bunny, and Doll FB group, you've seen all of the progress on this wall hanging!



I hosted a "casual QAL" for our Faceted pattern collection on FB this fall -- it was a lot of fun to do something from an already written pattern rather than a brand new pattern and it's something I will do again!

Returning back to the beginning, I cut the majority of the scraps used in this project using my Accuquilt cutter. 


A lot of half-square triangles later, I incrementally made the pieces and parts for this quilt ...

Quilt FINISH: Hourglass Quilt from Jo's Country Junction

I finished up my hourglass quilt.  I was able to get it loaded and quilted on Sunday night.

Oh what a pretty array of color.  I had so much fun with this quilt.  I’d happily make one again and again.


It was fun to slow down my quilting a little bit and take in all of the different prints.  I love these.  See the one that says, “Iowa”.  Next to it there is one that says, “make soup”.

After that, it was on to binding.  I was REALLY tempted.  Really, really tempted to let it sit and do something ...
