TWO precious little girls! Our daughter in law wanted something extra special for their arrival...she likes watercolors and wanted something that was not a “baby” print...thank goodness for the internet because I could not come up with anything from our local quilt shops! These kids live in Southern California and the babies were due in August, so needless to say, we needed to create something lightweight, soft, and beautiful! We did used minkyfabric for the backing and did not use any batting which limited the quilting results.
I loved the nine patch and hour glass tutorial. I couldn't wait to make this quilt. A friend at work is fighting breast cancer. I wanted to make her a quilt. Her daughter said that her favorite color is green. I need to quilt and bind it.
I love this Gingiber Savannah fabric. I used animals from one of the panels to make this quilt. I'm making this quilt for a coworkers baby boy, Noah, who was born in May. I used the large animals from the fabric panel on the back of the quilt.
Made with Kaffe Classics 10” precuts, yardage from my stash & Jenny’s Totally Tulips pattern. Perfect for my 8 year old Granddaughter’s bed; a “Big Girl” style that she won’t outgrow anytime soon. If you are looking for certain coordinating fabrics/colors (as I was) then splurge on the precuts. They aren’t necessary though; the pattern lends itself to any mix of fabrics you have on hand.
My 2 girls had the same teacher for 4 years between the 2 of them. We made a simple pattern with very few seams so the girls would be able to piece the top without lots of frustration in sewing it together. It’s made of wovens and is 80x80. I quilted it using a dot to dot format.
Wanted to make a play mat for the grandkids...ages 9 mos - 12yrs. We have played I Spy with the older kids for years and thought a big quilt would be a way for the six of them to play together and have the older ones teach the little ones how to play! Actually though, I loved the tutorial and have looking for an excuse to make this quilt for a long time!
I've sewn all of my life but this is my first quilt! Thanks to Debbie for gifting me the Block from Missouri Star Quilt Co. and to Michelle for guiding me through the cutting and piecing process! College students across the nation spend countless hours to volunteer and fund raise to send children whose parents have or have had cancer to a summer camp....a camp with opportunity to be a kid and to reduce or escape their worries. I took inspiration from BLOCK to use the breast cancer themed "Ribbons of Hope" quilt pattern but using lavender fabric to create an "all cancer" ribbons of hope quilt for Camp Kesem. It was successful and I am so grateful.
