For whatever reason, I have been on a roll this year finish quilt after quilt. I am not so slowly working my way through my bin of kits and jelly rolls and patterns that I have bought waiting to create.
My favorite finish has got to be this quilt.
I saw this quilt a few years ago and when I was given a layer cake of batiks at Christmas; I knew it was a perfect fit. I picked up some fabric on the weekend to make an equally fun backing.
I saw this table runner on Instagram, I knew I had to make one too. I did make a mistake though; the pattern called for 2inch squares, I had 2.5inch but after a little math, it worked out.
Lastly, from the one day I'll make it list lol
I made a quilt similar last year and had so many leftovers. I love this little man pattern so much; it goes together so quickly and uses a small amount of fabric.
I'm not sold on the borders; I may pull off the inner border and just go with the print. Tell me what you think.
We got hammered with snow yesterday, at last measurement we had just under 14inches of snow in the yard; that was over about 16hrs of snowing; craziness! I debated about dragging this quilt out into the snow for some pictures but the rain started today and everything is a nasty, super soggy mess; yuck.
Mom made me a table runner for Christmas and gave me the remainder of the Wishes jelly roll. I knew exactly what pattern I wanted to make.

I love how the quilting pattern accents the piecing.
I debated going with a white background but felt it would blend too much; I love how with the grey the colours just pop.
I finished it off with one of the red prints for binding.
Until Christmas ;) lol. With the amount of snow we've gotten since Saturday, you would think it's almost Christmas time now. So what a better time to finally show the last few quilts I quilted up for clients to give as Christmas presents.
Marie brought in this lovely table runner. It was close to our cut off date for Christmas quilting but I couldn't not get it to her for Christmas.

This is such a great pattern.
Sheila is Marie's daughter; she made the following quilts.
Another fun table runner.
I did a motif in the white blocks and water stitched in the darker sections. A quick piano key of the border and it was finished.
This lovely quilt for her soon to be daughter in law

And this flannel snowman quilt.

This little table topper by Nadia.

This fun string quilt by Nancy.
|quilted with Treetop|
Because string quilts are foundation pieced, this quilt had some serious weight to it. Love how the pattern showed up on the back.
Lily did this snowman quilt. This is the 5th or 6th of these I have quilted; could probably do one now with my eyes closed lol.
Lots of echo quilting and meandering. I did a freehand meander with a star in the borders.
Lastly, another Marie made this for a friend of her daughters.

That's it for Christmas 2013. Before I know it, I'll be getting quilts for this Christmas lol. And I'll admit, I may have already finished a gift or two for this year!
I made one of these quilts last summer and ended up with enough fabric to make a second one. The first quilt I used a lime green for the background; I loved the contrast it created. With the leftovers from the first quilt, I made a second one.
I love how the white background makes the colours just pop; so crisp and fresh.
I quilted it with the same pattern, dazzle. This pattern is quickly becoming a favorite.
The pattern is a free one from Moda Bake Shop and goes together very quickly.
I have a few other jelly rolls I've been saving, I just might have to make another one of these.
