Finished the quilt top due to a rare weekend nap by my 3 year old!
I pieced this right after my string quilt when all the leftover stripes were laying about. I laid out the triangles in various ways and like this one the best. I came up with this triangle idea a while ago and had been itching to try it out. Blocks are 10.5".
Only scraps were used to make this quilt which is why some of the color strips are pieced. The white is from a 100% cotton bed sheet.

I got comments about this quilt on the pictures of the cats close together again so decided to bring this forward that shows up so much better.
Made for a friend. She wanted a ruffle edge.
Made with left over Moda Summer in the City charm pack. Crazy nine patch pattern.
Just used 9 different squares to create my 9 nine patches. Finished blocks are about 3 1/2"
For the border, I cut more charm squares in 1 1/4" strips, sewed those strips together, then cut my border strips from that.
Hexagon Quilt top is all done! Used a Plume Jelly Roll and white yardage.
I'm happy to finally have this one quilted! I love the mix of prints and colors - tons of great Heather Ross prints! Blogged here.
Quilt for my friend's new baby. He is scheduled to arrive December 19th. I'm hoping for the 16th, that's my birthday!

I finished my triangle quilt this weekend! I was going to add a pieced binding and had it all cut out and ready. Then I went to get the mail and opened a fabric purchase, laid it near the quilt and discovered I liked the striped fabric so much, I used it for the binding! pretty great timing! The binding is Alexander Henry seaweed stripe.
A couple mistakes by the novice quilter (me). Used organic natural cotton batting. Not good for a quilt with lots of white-I can see all the little brown specks that are in this batting...
Also, used cream colored thread to quilt on a white fabric.
Also, got a big bubble in the backing after free motion quilting.
such is life.
I finished my pink and yellow Little folks quilt yesterday and am very pleased with it. We have some sun for the first time in weeks, so you can really see the colours. The dark spots on the right side of the picture are actually shadows of the trees in my (very small) garden. Front, back and binding are Little folks and I used a double layer of batting to give it some extra volume.

This is an updated version of one of the first quilts I made. Measurements and a quick tutorial are posted here if you'd like to make a similar one!
Kaleidoscope quilt complete. I used a kaleido-ruler to cut the triangles and it was a lot easier than anticipated to construct.

So, I decided to make a Gypsy kisses quilt a couple weeks ago - I just finished it and absolutely love it! I used Scrumptious, Happy Go Lucky and Marmalade fabrics by Bonnie and Camille. It is my most favorite quilt I've made so far!

Medallion quilt - double bed size, made for my mother. Machine pieced, machine and hand quilted. 2005-6
originally this quilt was going to be a "turning twenty" quilt. but it's impossible to pick just 20 amy butler prints, they are all so lovely. plus, i knew i wanted it for my king size bed. (mind you, this is only my second quilt! i must have been insane when i decided to tackle this project!) so i added an extra row or two... and ta da! my quilt is finished & just as beautiful as i imagined. every time i look at it i smile! it's so bright & cheery how could you go wrong?
This quilt is made using the Schoenrock Cross block, and appears in issue 66 of Quilters Companion. Blogged here: theelvengarden.blogspot.com.au/2014/03/roundabout-quilt-f...

My second quilt, 50" x 70". i used all scrap fabrics for the top, cotton batting, and flannel for the backing. the pattern is A Flock of Triangles in Denyse Schmidt Quilts.
i had a difficult time with the triangles. i need to learn to be more precise with cutting and seaming. it took me about a year to finish this. it's not perfect, but i am happy with it.
I followed the Crazy Mom Quilts star quiltalong: crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/2008/04/star-quilt-along-week...
Unfortunately I saw this stunning quilt (http://www.flickr.com/photos/27908852@N05/4225368077/in/faves-7608459@N02/) and couldn't get it out of my head. Which is why I have the orange starts. I auditioned so many fabrics for the borders (in blue) but nothing could beat the Katie Jump Rope fabric.
I'm nearly finished!! I am so happy with the quilting- it is the first time I've free motion quilted a queen sized quilt on my little bernette machine- it was easier than I expected!!
I just need to bind it now...
The piecing of this pattern was quite time consuming. Good thing I don't have to work right now, so I could spend some days sewing. Almost none of the seams match, and I simply gave up trying after a while and only concentrated on making the white seams match, thinking those would catch the eye and the others wouldn't matter as mutch.
I like the pattern of this quilt, but am not sure I chose the right fabric. Maybe someting bold and striking would have been better. Maybe next year...
A quilt for my (already arrived) nephew using Lizzy House's Red Letter Day collection. I used Oh Fransson's Mod Sampler quilt-along, but to make it baby-sized I used fewer fabrics and dropped one of the blocks. This quilt - www.flickr.com/photos/misplacedpom/3789336991/in/pool-mod... - was my inspiration.

I love this block, and the resulting quilt! It's fun to use up so many favorite scraps! Blogged here.
