A little more paper piecing practice on this baby boy quilt. I found the paper piecing patterns on etsy and adjusted the scale a bit. Used fussy cut zig zag fabric for the sashing and binding. Green polka dot minky on the back. I quilted some of the words to the song on the green outer boarder. Not sure I can give this one away. I may have to save it for a grandchild.
I had a quilt kit for a large ruby red quilt that I finished off. When I was done, I had a lot of fabric scraps leftover. I wanted to keep the scraps together, at least for one more quilt. I took some foundation paper squares I had left from a different project and randomly placed fabric on them. I put a strip of black down the long side of the triangle and paired them up. I then sashed each square and put it within a border. Even the backing fabric for this quilt is left over from the original! It's a throw size, but looks pretty good.
My sister loves polka dots, so when I found a layer cake of swiss dot fabrics, I reserved those for her. Then I saw Jenny's tutorial on the Tea Cake pattern - it was just perfect for the layer cake. I put a larger polka dot as the backing just for fun. "Make a Tea Cakes quilt with Jenny"
My friend and I made this purple mushroom quilt for my friends husband to give to his wife for her birthday (she loves mushrooms and purple). My friend paper-pieced the mushrooms at a retreat months ago. We cut and sewed the remaining part of the quilt all day today. Her friends are visiting in four days. Quilt is 63" square. Mushroom pattern is from the book "A Paper-pieced Garden: 27 Mix-and-Match Blocks Plus Unique Quilts" by Maaike Bakker and Francoise Maarse
