I made this quilt for my grandson's 3rd birthday as they plan to move him to a toddler bed and this will be his new quilt. He lives and breathes Monster Truck Jam - LOL - so hopefully this will be perfect. I made 2 pillowcases to match. The quilt pattern is disappearing 9 patch with the focus fabric being Monster Truck Jam cotton. I layered it with batting and put Monster Jam Truck Fleece on the back. I'm happy with the result.
I had come across this mini charm bag on Shabby Fabrics YouTube channel with Bethany. She did an amazing tutorial on making this bag, down to every detail. I used Nantucket Summer by Camille Roskelley. You can buy the mini charm packs, or cut your own into 2.5” squares. It takes 40. I decided to use some white fabric since my zipper is white, along with the pull tabs. The inside lining is from this collection, in a blue/white floral. I also purchased the sailboat zipper charm, which finishes this bag off nicely. Since I am from the Ocean state, it has some significant meaning to me.
This is a fun pattern. The little stars are a finished block of 2.5 inches square (very tiny pieces). After my first bunch and tryiing not to lose points in the seams, I worked very hard toward accuracy. They did become addicting and I ended up making three of these quilts. This one finished at 60 x 60 with a 5 block x 5 block layout. The original pattern finished at 60 x72. If you've got Christmas fabric stash -- this is a really pretty one to make up. I used white paper grunge as the background.
This is Missouri Star’s Goodnight Irene pattern and Moda’s Love Notes by Lella Boutique. I wish the line had a 108 inch backing because my daughter didn’t really want white. I kept making blocks until I got my size I wanted at 90 x 104 inches. A lot of 2.5 inch squares! I can’t tell you how glad I am the top is finished. I would really be happy if we had backing and it was quilted.
I really enjoyed making these quilts. The stars took the longest but once those were done, it went quickly. This is a Corey Yoder Pattern. Her original layout is for 5 x 6 blocks or 60 x 72 but I abbreviated this to 5 x 5 blocks resulting in 60 x 60 finished quilt.
I made this small quilt at the request of my friend so she could give it as a gift to her friend's daughter who is having a baby girl in Jan.My girlfriend picked the pattern from several books I gave her for inspiration. I picked the fabrics that she gave approval to. I'm happy with the results as is she. The quilt pattern is Charming Squares and Diamonds. It is pieced and appliqued. I used 2 fabrics from Moda's Tulsa Tulip collection and the bright pink is a Moda Grunge.
