This quilt was started in November of 2014 and finished in December of 2014 as a Christmas present for my Mimi. Fabric is Winged by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery Fabrics. The pattern is Brick House from Adrianne at Little Bluebell. I did straight line quilting on my home machine (Brother CS6000i).
One of my best friends had a baby girl and that was of course the perfect opportunity I needed to give the hourglass quilt (I found on Pinterest) a try! I had some yardage from the Kissingbooth line that I had been saving for something like this - perfect! It's one of my first quilts and the very first quilt I FMQ'd.
A dear friend's daughter was expecting a baby and I wanted to do something special and hand made. I found a booklet on Irish chain quilts and I decided to make a baby quilt that day. I machine quilted hoping it would be used and washed many times! They do! Tummy time is when they put this quilt down and I'm thrilled they are using it with this sweet baby!
My first Stack and Whack. What fun I had at the Stack and Whack class at Mary Jo's. When Aimee grabbed my fabric and ripped it in half, I about had a heart attack. Once I started and saw how large the throw was, I kept on whacking and made it into a queen sized quilt for my MIL.
My daughter, Heather, moved into an apartment her sophomore year at college in 2013. This was the perfect quilt for her room going from dorm to apartment whom she shared with roommates. In addition to this quilt, I made her 2 MSQC Zig Zag table runners from the charm pack. With a little left over fabric I made her a pillow case. (From the MSQC tutorial also) This was her first quilt and a gift that she will truly treasure.
This is the first quilt I ever made. My sister talked me into a paper piecing class and I've been hooked ever since. A non-traditional log cabin made for baby Catie, grandchild no. 7! The girls at my local quilt shop helped pick out the fabrics. I used the left over fabric for the back.
