Multi Stripe Baby Quilt

Sorry I haven't posted much for awhile. I've been busy with my other blog.

This is my favorite thing that I have quilted lately. I admit - it pieced it too. But the quilting might be my favorite part. It came out just how I envisioned - or even better.

Piecing this quilt was a blast. Super easy, and exciting to see it come together. If you want to make your own, you can purchase my downloadable instructions from the Etsy shop. Only $1.25 - what a bargain. Or you can just read my tutorial for it here.

I really love the front of the quilt - but the back is to die for. I really really love it. So much that I am giving it away today. Lucky little unborn baby. Oh and lucky mom too.

Renewal Pinwheels

I am so jealous of the twin beds these quilts are going on. (I just quilted a pair of them.) I loved the fabrics so much, I looked them up. It is the Renewal line by Brannock and Patek for Moda. The green polkadots are my favorite, but all of the fabrics are nice. I like the color line.

I am proud of myself for branching out with the feathery pinwheel thingy I quilted in the blocks. I love how it turned out.

Pears by Joined at the Hip

I love it when I get to quilt for myself. My mom and I made these pear wallhangings from kits we purchased in the fall. I just got them both quilted. Mine is hanging on the inside of my front door.

Striped Squares

I like this simple quilt pattern. I used mostly geometricish quilting on it.
Since it wasn't very girly to begin with, I didn't want to add to many girly flowers and such.

Civil War Quilt

Another sampler quilt. My customer said it is a Civil War quilt. The colors are a little washed out in these photos. The quilt is beautiful.

Here is a closeup of the borders. Feathers, flowers, and swirl leaf sashing.

And here are some of my favorite blocks.

I reapeated the flower from the border in a few of the blocks.

Love the flags.


You will recognize this quilt as another art quilt from my artsy quilter.
She called this her scrap quilt. I would love to have my scraps turn out like this. She has developed a great personal style which I am starting to see in her quilts. This one is a mix of folk art, and Japanese to me. The fish and flowers look kind of Asian. I like it.
Here is the border and branch detail.

The fish were definately my favorite.

Especially this fish.
