 I had been loving The Blanket Statement patterns lately.

We carry a few of them in the shop

This is a newish pattern of Erin's and even better, it's a freebie for signing up for her newsletter. 

The Old Market Square quilt.

This quilt goes together so quickly. 
I did the two colour option,  there is also a three colour one.

I love that I was finally able to find a pattern to use this bird fabric for. It's one of my favourites. 

I of course, used my current obsession, Malachite for the quilting.

I had the perfect backing fabric for this; the colours matched perfectly.

The white binding might be my favourite part.

I loved this quilt so much that I actually made another.

I'll admit I had originally planned the script print to go with the bird fabric but it was too busy. This seems like these fabrics were made for each other.

Happy Monday!

 I made up these two cuties for Rising Mama Collective

I was originally going to keep one for a store sample  but I decided to donate it as well.

I adore these Riley Blake prints.  It is so adorable.

I used one of my favourite speedy baby quilt patterns, Little Man by Simplify.

As always, a soft flannel for the backing.

quilted with Surf's Up

The quilts almost have a beachy theme, I felt the quilting pattern was perfect for these.


Happy Monday!

 I bought the fabric for this quilt back in 2021. Turns out I didn't buy enough and it took a few months to find more of the floral print. 

Once I finished the quilt, I didn't love it. It sat for months while I decided what to do with it. 

Last fall, an idea came to me.

I turned the quilt from a king size to a queen size, using the leftover blocks as part of the backing fabric. And this is the result.

I think what threw me off with this was the brown chain. I had really wanted to go with a black or charcoal and it just didn't work with the floral.

I had thought of staying traditional and quilting this with a feather or a floral, but I went on a whim and quilted it with one of my favourites, Malachite.

I used a ivory and pink print for the backing and with the extra blocks added in, I think it made it extra special.

I ended up giving the quilt to my sister in law. I had made her a quilt years ago and it was long past time that she received a grown up one.

Happy Monday!
