I just finished this quilt top for my friend/neighbor's daughter for high school graduation. I used blue, purple, and green fabric (her favorite colors). I used fabric scraps to make a string border. 80 x 96" I'm going to quilt it with my friend's help on her longarm tomorrow.
This baby quilt was made using a MSQC Xs and Os Quilt pattern except I made it baby-sized for our niece’s new baby girl due this June. I used 10” precut squares, from the Romance Mint Collection by Benartex, and adjusted the pattern for a small quilt. I tried to be a little creative on the back by centering three large pinwheels. I also used leftover pieces of my 10” squares to make the binding. This was my first attempt at machine quilting, something I hope to try again soon......maybe!

I decided to make something with wool felt. I decided to sew it all by hand. The rabbit was store bought. My husband helped draw the rabbit patterns. The day after Easter I was wheeled into surgery. Hand sewing was relaxing and helped get my mind off the surgery. I embroidered the tails and outline of the rabbits using the button hole stitch and French knot.
My friend and I split a package of Kaffe Fassett 10” squares to each make a Tranquil Triangles quilt. We chose different borders and backing, so our quilts are more sisters rather than twins! It was a great project to do together and it all went quickly with two of us sharing tasks.

My Granddaughter Elena was turning two and I decided to make her a small quilt. Her momma said she was in a toddler bed. So I didn’t think that would be very hard. When I had quite a few squares made, I called her mama and asked her for the dimensions of the toddler bed. I told her I was almost finished with all the squares, and I was excited to get them put together. Elena’s Momma told me that Elena didn’t like her toddler bed, and they had set up a queen size bed for her to sleep in. All I could think of was I had a lot more squares to make.
