Nativity Wall Hanging

This is my mom's Nativity wall hanging. My sister and I are also making one, but two years just hasn't been enough time for us to get ours done. This pattern is from Art to Heart. Really cute, really alot of work.

Baby Nine Patch

Floraly prints and girly colors! This baby quilt is romantic and sentimental. Each block is stitched with a loopy flower.

Picket Fence Table Runner

Here is the November table runner for Gatherings Quilt Club. I wanted to especially point out the checker board center. I quilted this with continuous curves which is a very basic and traditional quilting pattern. I love the way it softens the straight lines in the checkerboard.

Baby Wreath

I thought you might like a back view of this quilt as the quilting is easier to see. I love the soft and rich colors in this quilt, as well as the applique. The vine on the wreath is chenille ric rac. Nothing is happier than ric rac. You can see the swirl meander in the center of the wreath with swirls, leaves and flowers on the outside of the wreath. The outer border is my favorite floral border with leaves and the inner border is loops.

Red, Black, and Gold

I somehow managed to get this quilt done before I headed off to the quilt shop hop last week. I just didn't get around to posting it. I did what I call the square sunflower in the large blocks, and x's in the small squares. The outer border is large loops, but since blogger is struggling right now, I cannot upload my detail picture for you to see it.

Free Pattern - Pink Chocolate

I can't resist posting a link to this fun quilt pattern. Yes it is free! I love these fabrics from the Chocolate Lollipop line by Anna Maria Horner. I would also like to make a hand bag out of these, or one of these diaper/wipes cases.

If the ducks in this quilt haven't got you smiling - well I just don't know what to do about that! I love this baby quilt I did today. The quilting consists of swirl meander, loops, stars, and I even quilted the word "Quack" into it a few times. I couldn't resist. Maybe I'll go take the kids to the park to feed the ducks.

Falling Leaves

How lucky could I be to get to do so many fall quilts this season! I love this leaf quilt that I finished quilting this morning. I quilted down the center of the stripes on the border, an oak leaf vine in the inner border, and I added an oak leaf with echos to the plain blocks. Hope you like it!

Vintage Halloween

Quilted this one today too. It is a Thimbleberries table topper with their new Halloween vintage fabrics. I love how the colors of the fabric, especially the black are faded just a little to give it the feel of older fabrics.

Nine Jacks

I love getting to do holiday quilts near the season of the specific holiday. This one was a lot of fun. How can you not smile at those cute jack-o-lanterns? Fall is here and I am loving it! Look for some more festive posts coming in the future!
