Happy Little Owl Quilt

 Just finished the binding, with the help of my mother-in-law, on this happy little owl quilt. It is made from a charm pack and yardage of AdornIt fabrics that I picked up at QuiltCon. I really love it for a baby.    The fabric in this line is so charming and the palette is warm…

My Weird Little Pin Quilt

  As part of my mission to finish projects and have less clutter in my sewing space, I finally finished my weird little pin quilt. I made this with 2.5″ squares of Kona cotton, using all the colors that were available when I stitched the top about two years ago. The quilt measures 22″ x 38″…

New Baby Quilts

  I am moving a little slower these days while I wait for my surgery but I was able to finish two fun baby quilts last weekend. The fabric has fun safari animals, polka dots and an adorable alphabet print. I didn’t have a fabric in my stash that I loved for the border and then…

Christening Quilt

 I got a request over the weekend for a custom order for a special quilt – a Christening Quilt. This is my customers second child, and for the first one she had a small quilt in light colors that christening guests could sign and write notes on. She wanted to recreate the same idea for…

Baby Girl Quilt 

All of a sudden it seems that pink is out of fashion. I still love pink from light to dark, but fortunately there are many beautiful palettes with which to work when making a quilt for a baby girl.    I made this one with a beautiful pinky-peach rose on a deep peach/coral fabric. The…
