This sweet little quilt is for a cousin’s new baby girl named Paisley.
And yes, I had to include a paisley fabric in the design. It was unavoidable. =)
The quilt is based on a traditional honey bee block, which is the large square surrounded by the pink petals on each corner. I’ve seen [...]
Friends of ours are having their first baby very soon. Josh & I were invited to a couples baby shower celebrating the little guy and this is what I made:
If you think the owl fabric looks familiar, I used another color way of the same print earlier this year in the quilt [...]
I made a comfort quilt for a friend who is going through breast cancer treatments right now. Kristy and her family have been very special to us; we’ve gotten to know them over the years from going to the same church.
I went with a modern look: large scale prints against white. It’s a [...]
Jett’s quilt is now finished! I had the best of intentions of finishing this about 4 years ago. I made a nearly identical quilt for Jude in blue/white/black fabrics when he turned two years old. I wanted to have Jett’s quilt done when he turned two, that gave me a whole year to get [...]
I have been quilting a lot lately. This is actually one of SIX new quilts that I have to share with you!
This quilt is for baby Franklin who was born in November of last year. He is the first-born of friends Marc & Angela. Frank is an absolutely ADORABLE baby, and if that wasn’t [...]
My brother and his wife Morgan got married on July 2nd of this year. They conceived a child approximately 7 to 10 days later, but that is beside the point (of this post)! As a quilter, I see milestones such as weddings (and pregnancy announcements/births) as opportunities… for myself! I can be pretty self-centered [...]
In an effort to link to my completed quilt projects on the left sidebar of this Arts & Crafts section, I discovered that I had forgotten to share yet another quilt that was completed during the Great Blog Drought of 2010.
So here she is:
I love the way this quilt turned out; it [...]
I made this little quilt recently for friends of ours who are having their first child in August.
I’ve made a lot of quilts lately entirely (or almost entirely) out of 2 1/2” squares of fabric. I have a lot of fabrics and the smaller the squares, the more I can use [...]
I just love surprises! I love it when couples choose to be surprised by the gender of their baby on the day of birth.
We did it both ways – we didn’t find out what we were having the first time around with Jude. With our other two sons, we did find out at [...]
I have a lot of experience stripping. Not on a pole, mind you, stripping as in strip piecing… as in making quilts? Hello? Anyone there?! Saying stripping instead of strip piecing is, like, the oldest quilters joke. Classic. Neat.
Strip piecing basically is cutting full-length strips of fabric, selvage-to-selvage, and then sewing the long strips [...]
