New Churn Dash Round Up Baby Quilt
Hope you have fun with this one! You can make all kinds of things using the appliqués. Size them up or down to suit. More project pictures below the pattern cover. $10 online price for the pattern includes first class mailing and cowboy, cowgirl, horse and star appliqués. It looks good in modern or rustic fabrics and larger prints work too.
Fussy cutting the horse makes it pretty cute!
I enlarged the cowboy shape 150% and made this little stuffed guy.
A little strip quilt was fast and easy to do with leftover jelly roll strips and enlarged horses in opposite corners.
This sweet little mini happened after the pattern was already printed. All I did to make it was cut the measurements in half and reduce the shapes. Really fun for a little girl's room.
OK I won't actually be quilting on National Quilting Day this year. Hopefully you will be and having a great time. Here are some very recent projects. I was lucky enough to get to quilt this beautiful twin sized star quilt. Lory made this one for her six year old granddaughter. It was fun just looking at these great colors. She always does a beautiful job with the piecing.
The pattern for the quilt below is from a 2015 American Patchwork and Quilting magazine supplement. Good Vibrations by Kari Vojtechovsky. I used African themed fabrics for my version and added a border. The napper I have in mind for this one needed a bit more quilt. And it was fun adding the embroidered elephants. Maybe the pale green would have been better than cream for larger open spaces but... no going back now.
Hearts A Flutter Mini Quilt
Here is a picture of the car cuddle quilted now. Variegated thread makes it fun.
Barbara's Scrappy Hearts A Flutter in progress. Love the colors she is using.
It's been awhile and I'm excited to say there is a new free mini-quilt pattern for you up on the Moda Bake Shop.
This is pretty simple and cute in Valentine's fabrics for your table or wall. Hope you will try it.
Below is another idea using the hearts to make a car cuddle/drag around for baby or toddler. I've been wanting to make something pink so here is a quick pink fix. The dimensional hearts make a nice handle for a little one to grab. Vertical strips are either 2.5" or 5.5" wide and 36" long with a finished size of approx. 31" x 36".
All pieced now. This is really fast and would make a nice gift. I know it's only strips but I think it will be super cute once the quilting is finished. Probably some kind of overall heart motif. A good way to use scraps and leftovers. I'll post another picture when it's done.
Monkey Bar Quilt Drawing Winners
And the winners are Linda, Heather and Anita! Hope you enjoy embroidering or appliqueing or quilting this one!
Excited to share a new baby quilt pattern on the Bake Shop. http://www.modabakeshop.com
This one is easy and there is a large monkey shape included to embroider, applique or use as a quilting motif.
I had a lot of fun embroidering the monkey and I hope you will too.
I printed out a few full sized copies of the monkey drawing so leave an I'm in or Send me the monkey comment here and your name will go in the hat for the drawing.
Lady Liberty Pillow
This was a fairly quick project to help celebrate for the 4th. The red and white stripe background is pieced and the applique is all fused to the circle. I was in a hurry so didn't stitch it down. I did stitch the circle to the standard size pillow case. Fun for July and helps to soften the bench.
Peek A Bear Quilt Baby Girl
I made the first quilt shown (green dot) for a new mom to be that likes pale spring colors and polka dots. I usually gravitate toward the bright and saturated but hopefully she'll like it. She is having a girl so I borrowed the skirt applique from Hula Bear and put it on this version of Peek A Bear. It's really windy this Mother's Day so not a good day to go outside and take a picture of it finished. Here's a little video so you can at least see the colors.
Can't tell you how many of these bear quilts I have made over the years (scroll down for a few pics) but I always have fun. Love the big bear applique and getting to hand embroider around it with blanket stitch. Happy Day to all the Mom's out there.
