quilt monday

Our basketball coach married our french teacher.
 And when they had a baby, I knew I had to make them a quilt.

I wanted to use all stash fabric and
 lucked out with enough fabric to make a baby quilt in our school colours. 
Win.


I could not be happier with how this turned out.


I did have a close call. Had the quilt already to quilt and realized that one of my HSTs was turned the wrong way. Caught it right in time!

 
quilted with Laurie

And that orange binding. The only thing I had to buy. 
I was hoping for a plaid or polka dot but no such luck sadly.


Adorable.


Happy Monday.





finishes

I've had a great week and finished off some quilt tops.

Firstly, this Valentine's quilt.


Pattern is With Love by Gigi's Thimble

 Finally finished my True North quilt.
 So excited for this one!


And lastly, finally got my TrueNorthBee quilt together. 

This block goes together so quickly. 
Quickly enough I ended up with almost a queen size quilt lol.

You can find the pattern here.


Now to find time to quilt them!

I had some time and snuck in this snowman quilt for myself.


My favourite part of this is the fact that it's entirely made from my stash. 
Bonus!



I kept the quilting simple and used Mini Snowflake.

Even the backing is stash.
 Even better, there was just enough for this quilt.


I love this print.


There was a hiccup when I was piecing this. 
Originally, I had planned 3 star blocks.

When I went to make more, 
I discovered that I had cut my fabric wrong and was short.

So I got creative and carefully sewed the pieces together to make the last block.
And you can barely tell.


Happy Monday!



long weekend fun

We just had  a long weekend, Family Day. 
I was thrilled to get to spend some time with some fabric.

I decided to make a baby quilt for a teacher at school and wanted to use just stash fabrics.


While pulling fabrics for that, I got sidetracked by something else.


And started a (late) Valentine's day quilt.


A very productive weekend!

My leaf block obscene continues. 


This quilt occurred by accident. I was pulling fabrics for my bigger leaf quilt when this grey fabric fell out of my cabinet and love!


The fabrics I used in this might be some of my favourites.
 That black leaf?? Perfection.

But this orange?


I wanted a swirly, windy feel to the quilt so I used Flirtatious for the quilting.

I didn't plan to quilt this as soon as I had finished the top. 
But it turned out, I had a piece of batting the exact size I needed 
and this piece of fabric was perfect for the backing.


I think I need another.

quilt monday

I was procrastinating the other day and was rummaging through my fabric stash when some inspiration hit. 


So quick and fun! 
And the perfect new quilt for our kitchen table.

The white has a shimmer to it, so pretty when the light hits it.



I fussy cut the border so the I love you, is all in the correct direction.


I wanted to keep the quilting simple,
 so I used my favourite heart panto, Folk Heart.


The simplicity is perfection.


Happy Love Week.
