quilt monday

I lucked out with some spare time and had a random layer cake. Could I make something with it? It was also a Saturday night of a long weekend, no quilt stores open until Tuesday. Could I make this work?


I lucked out with some kona yardage that matched the layer cake perfectly. And sewing quickly commenced.

quilted with Contempo

Actually a funny story behind this. I had originally planned to donate this quilt once finished but one of the boys quickly claimed it as his own lol. 

Once the quilt top was done, the next challenge was backing. Did I have enough in my stash?

You betcha.


How fun did that turn out?

I also found a darker solid that made the perfect binding.


Pretty much a success all around!





playing catch up

quilt monday

A friend just had a birthday and I got sneaky. I grabbed this bolt end fabric months ago with the idea of making it into something for her as it's her favourite colours. But what to make? So I asked her what her favourite block was and here we are.


 I do wish I had taken more pictures!

As always with table runners, I kept the quilting simple and went with a stipple.
This will crinkle up gorgeous once it's washed.


I even used my favourite grey grunge fabric. She must be a pretty special friend ;)



Until next time!



mail day

Yay for more blocks for my Ribbon Star quilt.



I'm waiting for a few more blocks then I can get on putting this together :)

bits and pieces

This month is my month for the TrueNorth bee. 
I chose what is apparently a difficult block, a Ribbon Star variation block.

But look how pretty it is!


I still have more than half the blocks to come in and
 I am eagerly waiting the mail delivery every day lol 

I also got this finished up.


Another JellyBean quilt, this one done correctly.
Funny story behind this. We redid our bedroom and I made this for our wall. And ended up not even using it lol.

And some TrueNorth blocks for someone else!




quilt monday

I made this one so quickly that I didn't even take a picture before I had it quilted.

A super easy quilt and super cute when finished.


I did the Popcorn panto to soften the points.


I used to be against piecing quilt backings on quilts I was giving away. But with the cost of fabric now, piece all the backings!


I love this little added bit.

Probably should have sewed it in straight lol.


I had just enough of the grey for the binding.
 Love it when that works out.


Now we wait for baby!
