A sweet friend, Shelly, donated fabrics and the pattern for these two quilts. She had cut out the fabric for the flowers quilt and it went together quickly. The fish fabric was just too cute to cut up so I decided to use the same pattern. The First Heartbeat pattern is by Terri Vanden Bosh. Hope a child likes them.
Seen Jenny's tutorial on this pattern. It makes up very easily. Although the only dislike I have was there were too many seams, hard to lay flat. That being said. I used a citrus jelly roll and blue Turquoise for background. The wedding colors were the yellows, oranges, green and blue. This was made for classmates daughter for wedding, May 1, 2021. Just finished the binding yesterday. Mother of bride says it's bright! Said they will love it. It's 90x 90. I stitched the couples name, date and location of wedding in border. I put parents initials also in border along with my name and location. I made my own stencil to use in the circles and border.
I recently came across this delightful pattern (designed by Casey York & by windhamfabrics.com.) whilst I was looking for something special to make for my friend who is pregnant with her first baby. I fell in LOVE with this and it is such a fun pattern to make. It measures 65"x75" so is a single bed size rather than a cot size. However, I just couldn't resist making this darling pattern especially when my local fabric store had the PERFECT fabric to use also.
I made this quilt for my friend's son who became an Eagle Scout last year but had the awards ceremony today. He is graduating this year and going to Virginia Tech in the fall. I used solid colors for the strips (I picked out colors from the Eagle panel) and added an additional color of strips on the top and bottom of the panel. I added extra borders to make the quilt bigger since the Eagle Scout is 6'2". He plans to take the quilt to college. I quilted it with a swirl pattern from Wasatch Quilting. I used Hobbs 80/20 black batting and Omni light gray thread. I stayed up all night hand binding it for the event yesterday. 75" x 95"
Made this quilt for one of my sisters using the Man Sewing Burst Block Template for 10" Squares and tutorial from MSQC. Had a jelly roll of Artisan Batiks in my stash that worked perfect for this quilt. Was to excited to give to my sister, I forgot to take pictures. There appears to be an unmade bed underneath the quilt...oh well.
I had alot of scrap batting that needed to be used, and this sweet little rag quilt used most of it. I used yardage from Riley Blake's "Modern Farmhouse" collection. I didn't follow a pattern, just cut various size strips and ragged them together, no quilting either, so this went together fast.
I made these cute little baskets for my nieces Makenzi & Matlyda to give to them when I went to the recent baby shower for their baby brother who arrived on the 9th April :) I also made little lavender sachets filled with lavender from my garden & little totes to match. They were absolutely delighted with their presents.
I purchased these fabric ends from a quilt shop that opened a few years ago. I had also purchased the "Mini Twister" and wanted to try it out...and this is the result (I did use some vanilla 5" charms for the border). Again, this was pieced in Nov 2019, but quilted and bound today (Apr 2021). I did put rod pockets on the back so that it could also be used as a wall hanging or something different to hang in the window of my front door. I'm starting to feel better about cleaning up the UFOs.
