I was inspired by Jenny Doan to use up some of my scraps to make a quilt with a lot of little houses. I watched her tutorial and seemed very easy and it was. I thought I would make a couple of houses a week, but it became so much fun matching up scraps that it was finished much sooner than I thought. My original plan was to donate it, but I love it so much, it's now mine!
I decided this year I wanted a “Nordic” Winter Theme since a week ago we already had our 1st (and probably only) snowfall of the year! (I live in Kansas and it hardly ever snows here, just cold and ice). This mini Art Quilt is the first and beginning of my adventures into my “Nordic Winterland”!
I could not wait to show you this "Easy Carpenter's Star" in Kaffe Fasset Spring 2019 Collective. It's so pretty, I plan to put a 2" white border and a 6" colored border. Will add another pic when it's done. I think any Kaffe Fassett Collective would work with this pattern. thanks Jenny. What do you all think?
Chess/Checker anyone? Working on 2020 Winter quilts for around the house. This Nordic Winterland Table Runner is the theme I've chosen for this year. I used the MSQC Fabric Checkerboard pattern and omitted the zipper pocket and added the Winterland scene instead. It was fun to make!
I was trying to duplicate the Cake Mix Recipe 1 quilt that Jenny made. I put the blocks together wrong. After almost giving up and putting the blocks in the trash bin I a came up with this layout. I love how it turned out and was proud to keep working through the mistake.
Every year, around wintertime/holidays, I try to make and send handmade greeting cards. Since this year I had decided to have a Nordic Winter Theme around the house, I went ahead and carried that same theme over to my winter/holiday cards. Oh, and for those wondering, yes I will be mail these through the USPS. I will put them into clear envelopes and then have them hand cancelled at the post office so they won't be run through any machines and get damaged or ruined!
This quilt was made with the Sew Kind of Wonderful Quick Curve ruler. I was signed up for a class that got cancelled due to Covid, so I used scraps and figured it out at home, then made this out of the blanks I had already cut for the class. Mom liked this one, so it was an early Christmas present!
Just finished this today on Halloween. It finished at 36 x 44. I'm thinking it will be a baby gift for a baby due in November. The pattern is from Cluck Cluck Sew and the large version (5x5 block layout) is at the Long-arm Quilter and is on a grey background. It is a fun quilt to make and I went a bit crazy on buying orange fabrics so you may see more of these pumpkins in my profile. I plan to make 4x4 block layouts for each of my grandkids.
My niece has enlisted in the Air Force and will report next August after she graduates from high school. I found the fabric on line as well as the pattern for the airplanes. I was hoping to give it to her for Christmas, but my quilter is totally backed up.
Using up fabric from the king-sized quilt I made a while back, I made this small "napping" quilt. I don't like a lot of covering at night but like my shoulders to be covered. Much of the time I grab small quilt to throw over my shoulders. This finished at 52.5 x 60. The smaller picture is the king-sized quilt.
