quilt monday

 My cousin had a pretty big birthday this year. I didn't have to think long about making her a quilt. Especially when I saw this quilt by Elizabeth Hartman 

Sleepy Sloths

How cute are they?? 

I love the panto I used, GroundCover.

The sloth bodies are actually linen. 
I've never used it in a quilt before and love how it turned out. 
It gives the sloths more of a realistic texture.

And that pop of olive fabric? 

I've already had 2 requests for repeats of this. 
But first, I might have to make myself one :)

Happy Monday!

 When I first saw the True North fabric line, I knew I needed it.

I knew it would be perfect for inside our trailer and I had to have it.

We've been camping the past two weeks. I planned on getting a few artistic quilt pics taken. It was fun finding places that I felt would work for what I had in mind.

I used one of my favourite fat quarter patterns from the book Happy Hour quilts(if you don't have it, I highly reccomend it. I wore one copy out).
I also did something with this quilt that I rarely ever do, I washed it once I finished it.

With this being a Canada quilt, 
the only appropriate quilting pattern was Maple Syrup.

Crinkled happiness.

Now for something funny. We drove down an old road. I had seen the fence from the main road and knew it would be a perfect place for some pictures. The funny part? I was on the side(sort of ) of one of the major highways here in BC, the Coquihalla.

No quilts, or quilters!, were hurt during this photo shoot :)

Happy Monday!

short and sweet

 I finished the sloths!

They could seriously not be cuter.

Do you like the one slipper look? I lost the other one lol

I also finished this. 

We got a new couch and we have boys lol. 
So I raided my 2.5inch squares and just started sewing.

It turned out pretty perfectly.
 I even used up a bunch of random leftover bindings for the binding, win!

I had a friend tell me that this is her favourite of all the quilts I have ever made. 
I was a little surprised. 
And I may have found my next secret project ;)

 It's finished!

This turned out so much better than I expected!!

quilted with StarDance

I'm not 100% on the panto I chose but too late now.

I don't have the greatest picture of the backing, but I was able to piece together strips of black, grey and red. It worked out perfectly.

The quilt was received with shocked tears; the best kind of reaction.

Onto the next surprise! 
Happy Monday :)

quilt monday

 Another quilt I don't think I even showed before it was quilted.

And another chevron quilt; they seem to be my thing lately :)

I made this for our youth pastor and his wife. They knew they were having a girl and they were doing the nursery in neutrals and rose gold.

I like a challenge :)

I think I knocked it out of the park on this one.

Quilted with the perfect little girl panto, Lovely.

The fabrics are so soft and delicate; I adore how this turned out.

I used up the last bit of my favourite baby quilt backing. Sadly, I have no idea when I'll get to head south to get more #covid :(

I kept it simple and used the neutral as binding.
 It just keep the quilt soft.

Happy Monday!
