Simply Sweet

I finished the second panel from Art Gallery fabrics and because much of the stitching is similar to the sheep quilt I recently posted, I won't fill this up with a lot of photos! Just wanted you to see it all done, and share a short video clip at the bottom of some stitching I… Continue reading Simply Sweet

Baa Baa Black Sheep

Soooo... I wanted to stray from the woodland animals baby quilt theme for a bit and do something fancier with more of a custom heirloom look and, of course, lots of white solid space.  This minimalist style panel is one of three I found in the "Nest" collection from Art Gallery Fabrics.  I love the… Continue reading Baa Baa Black Sheep

Wavy Lines with Clouds

Wavy lines and straight lines are popular on modern quilts and I like to find ways of embellishing them here and there to give a bit of extra interest to the overall look. I thought this cute baby quilt could use some clouds in the stitching, and rather than over think the shape and the… Continue reading Wavy Lines with Clouds

Smorgasbord

I haven't been writing but I have been quilting!  I had a few projects to finish up for a Christmas market I'm going to, so thought I'd just get them done and then put them all together into one post. I don't generally like to go from market to market, but I do try to… Continue reading Smorgasbord

Playing with Owls

Owls are popular right now, especially for baby stuff, so I played with an idea I saw on Pinterest for a cushion cover with owls peeking in from the edges, and expanded it to baby quilt size.  It seems that no matter how you make the owl bodies - with details or just simple shapes… Continue reading Playing with Owls

My new pin cushion (and a cute baby quilt…)

I needed a new pin cushion.  Yes n-e-e-d-e-d.  I was using some old thing that I recovered a while back and I didn't pay much attention to the fact that it was ugly as long as it worked.  But then when I started using the pretty Clover flower head pins from my mom, they made… Continue reading My new pin cushion (and a cute baby quilt…)

Modern Baby Quilts

What a great way to use up strips of solid fabrics, have several areas to practice border designs, and still have open space to go a little wild! haha  I totally grabbed this idea from someone else whose quilt appeared on Pinterest and if you've used Pinterest at all you know that tracking down random picture… Continue reading Modern Baby Quilts
