Jodi’s Quilt

IMG_8426_thumb.jpg

I finally have a new finish to share!  My good friend Jodi had a birthday today, and I’ve been working on this quilt all week as my gift to her.  It was a down-to-the-wire finish.  In fact, it came out of the dryer slightly damp, so I had to wait until the afternoon to take […]

Modern She Made Swap Package

IMG_8300.jpg

  This swap was all about hexagons—WAY out of my comfort zone!  For whatever reason, I never jumped on the hexie trend.  I had seen a little English Paper Piecing with hexies at a quilt shop, but I didn’t see the process start to finish and didn’t think I’d have the patience, so I just […]

Potholders—Handmade Teacher Gifts

IMG_8290.jpg

My son recently moved up to the next age group in his Bible class at church.  I always try to give a goodbye gift to my kids’ teachers when they leave their class.  It takes so much effort to plan and teach classes at church, and I’m so grateful for their efforts throughout the year! […]

Quick Baby Boy Quilt

IMG_8282.jpg

Whenever I need a quick baby quilt pattern, I almost always turn to Oh Fransson’s charm squares tutorial.  It’s a good way to use up scraps or charm packs, and it’s fast and easy.  It’s also pretty universally appealing.  It’s easy to switch out colors and fabrics to suit a particular person’s taste. I’ve had […]

Baby Girl Monogram Quilt

IMG_8271_thumb.jpg

I found these quilts on the Riley Blake website a few months back and have been itching to find a time to use the tutorial.  The hard part about this quilt is knowing the baby’s name before a baby shower.  I tend to give my quilts in advance of the birth—never good to take a […]

A Straight Line Quilting Disaster

IMG_8261.jpg

  I posted recently about the baby quilt I made for my nephew and how I ended up having to rip out the entire baby quilt’s worth of organic straight line quilting—not fun, in case you were wondering. I had a really hard time deciding how to quilt this because it’s all straight lines and […]

My New Little Nephew’s Quilt

IMG_8279_thumb.jpg

My sister-in-law is pregnant with her first baby (so excited!), and she asked me to make the quilt for his bedroom.   She decided on neutrals with pops of navy, and the inspiration room she found on Pinterest is loaded with cute accents like deer antlers (that will be my brother-in-law’s contribution), driftwood, etc.  It’s going […]

Girls’ Twin Quilts

IMG_8257.jpg

I just recently shipped these two matching twin quilts off to their new home.  These were ordered a couple of months ago for a girls’ room.  They were custom made, and I love the fabrics chosen.  The walls in the girls’ room are pink, and I think the aqua and white front will balance it […]

ONe Way to Mend Kids’ Pants

IMG_8219.jpg

I have two little boys, and fortunately, I got lots of hand-me-downs from a friend.  I’ve noticed, however, that pants seem to be somewhat elusive.  I always end up with plenty of shirts from other people or from shopping sales, but pants are always in short supply.  I’m not sure if it’s because they’re less […]

WIP: Twin Chevron Quilts

IMG_8240.jpg

This past week I’ve started working on two twin size quilts.  They’re for a custom order, and I just love the fabrics that were chosen.  The fronts are a basic chevron, and the backing fabric is the cute tree print with a strip of the pink down the back.  They’re for two sisters. I’ve finally […]
