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!

playtime

I've been better at managing my time lately and have been sneaking in some sewing time here and there. Here's a few work in progresses.

I love, love, love how this turned out.
You can't go wrong with a plus quilt.


I got caught up on my TrueNorth bee blocks.





And made a table runner for a friend's birthday.

I was sneaky and made it using her favourite block. 


Now to get it quilted!


quilt monday

I picked up this jelly roll on a whim. 
I went back and forth on what to make with it. I finally decided on a jelly bean quilt.


Funny thing though, I was hoping to get a lap quilt as per the instructions. Instead, I failed on reading the directions and ended up with a wall hanging and a table runner. All because I had sewed the corner square on different corners. And noticed after I had trimmed the squares.


I used a new pantograph on the wall hanging, Calder.


And a fast favourite, Simplicity  on the table runner.


I used my precious grey grunge for the squares and binding. Love that fabric. 




And I get two lovelies for the cost of one.

Happy Monday!
