quilt monday from Quilt Nut Creations

Hello! Is there still anyone out there? How was that for an unplanned break? After summer, I broke my laptop, it took forever to get the info off of it. We finally did and here I am!

In May I was queen bee for our TrueNorth blocks. I picked Gigi's Thimbles Scrap Jar Stars and waited for my blocks to start coming in.

As I put the quilt together, I couldn't stop making these blocks. They are just too fun.

I love this quilt so much. I had to quilt it with my current obsession, Malachite.

Love, love ...

Just a wee little something to show today. My sewing time has been drastically decreased lately so I have been sticking to things I can finish quickly. Like these adorable bunnies.

Aren't they adorable?

I kept the quilting simple and went with a  meander. I had actually wanted to cross hatch them but just started meandering when I went to quilt.

I went with a super pale pink for the binding which I love.

Just too cute.

This quilt.
 I found a FQ bundle at a quilt store and was searching for the perfect border fabric.
Could it be cuter?

quilted with Contempo
The forest animals.

The punch of orange.

Of course I backed it with a snuggly flannel.

And quilted it with one of my favourite pantos for square block quilts.

Way back in 2013(January to be precise), I made a granny square quilt. You can see it here. I've kept the remaining 2.5inch square and been trying to find something to make. I did make a ChurnDash quilt but it hardly made a dent in the squares. 

Until I found this.

I could not love this more. I saw that a lot don't I?

Such a great way to use up 2.5inch squares. 
If I had had more, I would have gone bigger no question.

And I got to try out a new panto for ...

This quilt.
 I literally could not love this quilt more. This was the block I had chose for the 2016 True North bee, the Ohio star. I requested colours in red, teal or black/grey and the choice of 3 different  block sizes. I wasn't entirely sure what I would end up with to be honest.

Once I started on my 2017 True North quilt, I  thought I could use these blocks as part of the backing on the new quilt. But when I was fiddling with layouts, something clicked and this is what I ended with.

I ended ...

I've been having a terrible time with my computer; I filled up my memory and can't access my pictures. I take LOTS of pictures lol.

I was going through my pictures when I found these and realized I had never shown them. So some Christmas in April today :)

I saw a block posted somewhere online last fall and knew I needed to make these. I'm pretty sure it took longer to hunt down the Christmas fabrics than it did to actually make the runners. 

Seriously, how cute are these? 

I kept the quilting simple and went with ...

I wanted to send a friend a little something as a thank you and just the way the pattern went, I was able to cut out two of the same quilt. So why not make both?

How cute are they?

As you can see, I kept the quilting simple and went with a crosshatch. I love how it compliments the quilt.

Those crisp bound corners.....

And now time to start something new!

This quilt. I was given the fabric by a friend a few years ago for Christmas and I knew what pattern I wanted to use. I finally sat down a few weeks ago and got it together.

quilted with Malachite 

I could not love this more.

And the quilting pattern. 
It has quickly become one of my favourites. 
I wasn't 100% sure about using it on this but so glad I went with it. I love the look.

I kept the binding simple and went with the same grey as the sashings. I love how it finishes the quilt ...

I was given some mini charm packs which was perfect since I had just seen a project online that was perfect for them.

Isn't it fun?

I wanted to keep the quilting simple and went with my favourite of straight lines.

This crisp corner <3 p="">

Quick, cute and perfect.

I took part of Valentine's mini quilt swap and had to make my favourite Valentine Mini quilt.

And why make one when I can make two?

I used one of my favourite Thimbleblossom fabrics for backing.

I quilted one with a cross hatch and got lazy for the second and did just straight lines.

Finished them off with a nice red grunge fabric.

Simple perfection

I love surprises.
 Especially ones when the receiver has no idea they are getting a quilt.

Sadly, the colours on the outdoor pictures of this quilt are totally out of whack.

This quilt was a gift for a young woman in our church who had just graduated from Bible school. The best part was she was totally shocked to receive it. I found that funny since two of her siblings have received quilts from me as well.

The true colours of this quilt. The border fabric was a lucky find. I mixed a few batik jelly rolls to make this ...

Yes, another baby quilt! It's been awhile since I've made a larger quilt.

quilted with Popcorn

Isn't it pretty? I love the softness of the fabrics.

I backed it with my favourite flannel.

I can not get over the adorableness of this.

And now, it awaits baby.

Apparently I make a lot of baby quilts lol. 
And this one happens to be one of my favourites.

I used one of my favourite FQ patterns, Yellow Brick Road.

quilted with Surf's Up

I love the quilting on this. Perfect for this pattern.

I Frankensteined some flannels together for the backing.

And now it's all ready for baby.

hello? is there anybody out there? that was an unplanned little(long) break. happy new year! let's all get back on track :)

Just a little something today as I need to organize my quilting pictures badly!

If this looks familiar, I'm not double posting a quilt. I made one a few months ago as a door prize for an event. A girlfriend fell in love with it so I recreated it for her.

i think my favorite part of this s the quilting. I love the straight lines.

such a fun and quick pattern to do.

A few months back a girlfriend asked if I could make her a Christmas tablerunner. She had seen some new ones I had finished( I still have to blog those) and wanted one of her own. She sent me the size she wanted and asked for poinsettias.

I had thought all the prints would make it too busy but it doesn't.

I was sewing it together and realized I needed a solid or two. The green  prints are from my stash and worked perfectly.

I wanted the quilting simple. I did straight lines on mine but felt a pattern ...

I got a FQ bundle of Madam Rouge by French General either for Christmas or my birthday last year from a friend. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it so I just kept it out and knew eventually it would speak to me :)

quilted with FairyFloss

As you can see, I went with granny squares and I couldn't love this more.

I love how the quilting softens the quilt right up. I think it gives it a vintage feel as well.

And the pop of red on the binding? Perfection.

It's been too long ...

I might not have my (epic)Swoon finished but I did finish a little something with the random hsts from each block.

I'm actually glad to have gotten this done as I realized I did a quilt with light coloured blocks and a dark background. Always makes for a bit of a challenge picking thread for the quilting; do you go dark or light?

quilted with Paisley Max

I had just enough of a fat quarter left for the binding.

And enough of my favourite ugly quilt backing fabric lol.

Maybe this week I can get my Swoon finally ...

January of 2015 I started this quilt. Got all the blocks made and it sat and sat. Last Christmas I did a trade with a friend; she would do my embroidery and I would quilt for her. A win for both of us.

I quilted it in March and finally got the binding finished and added the buttons in July. This Christmas I'll finally get to enjoy it.

Snowman are absolutely my favourite and these guys are the cutest.

I meandered around the snowman and in the sashings. The quilting is simpler than I wanted but it's what ...

One of hubby's co-workers had a baby and I knew exactly the kind of quilt I wanted to make for them.

I had the quilt all finished up except for the binding and once we learned that they had a little boy I went with a dark grey binding. For a girl it would have been pink.

I had just enough of my favourite chevron flannel for the backing.

I will admit, I'm not thrilled with the quilting. I wish I had gone with a different panto on it.

quilted with Spilled Ink

It didn't look terrible ...
