quilt monday

One of hubby's co-workers had a baby and I knew exactly the kind of quilt I wanted to make for them.

I had the quilt all finished up except for the binding and once we learned that they had a little boy I went with a dark grey binding. For a girl it would have been pink.

I had just enough of my favourite chevron flannel for the backing.

I will admit, I'm not thrilled with the quilting. I wish I had gone with a different panto on it.

It didn't look terrible, just not exactly the look I was going for lol.
But they loved it and I love how it turned out; such a great quick and easy quilt.

This fabric line was(is) perfection. Absolutely perfect for a male quilt. I just wish it had been easier to find; it sold out locally here so quickly. But seriously, I can not blame quilters for scooping these lovelies up; I regret not doing so myself.


quilted with Bright and Breezy

This is the second of three grad quilts I made this year. I thought I had bought enough fabric but not surprising, I hadn't. Lucky for me, some Grunge fabric went perfectly for a border.

I love how these matching blocks ended up dead center in the quilt.

This pattern went together very quickly which is always a bonus.

I backed it in a brushed cotton.

Love how the pattern shows on the backing.

And I love the look on grads' faces when they open these up.

Hard to believe that summer 2017 has come and gone. We had a great summer, camping, beach days, amusement parks and a roadtrip to Yellowstone. On the other hand, not a lot of sewing happened but I did get a few things finished.

I made a some baby quilts.

And have another one to get too.

Worked on another secret project ;)

I was 'queen bee' for the TrueNorth bee blocks.

I love happy mail.

And I started a little something for me,
