Miss A and Mr L {Completed Quilts}

Miss A, Mr. L, their mom, and I want to thank everyone who contributed blocks to the making of these quilts from the bottom of our hearts. I had no idea that the kids would want to be so involved in the making of their quilts, and the process has been truly a wonderful experience for all of us....

Doggie Baby Quilt

My sister-in-law and her cousin (does that make her my cousin-in-law?) commissioned me to make a quick baby quilt from fitted crib sheets for a close friend. They are all close due to their relationships with their fur babies (dogs). I used the same Circo 100% cotton sheet for the front and back, and in 2 hours I had a...

Fabric Purchase Oops

While I was working on the bird quilt I was pondering what to do with the fabric I had on hand, and I...

HST Scrap Quilt {Finished Quilt}

I really love how the HST Scrap quilt came together! I went with much less dense quilting than I have been using lately and focused on using dot to dot techniques along with other straight line quilting patterns to hopefully enhance the geometric design of the quilt while leaving it very soft and fluffy. For comparison, the photo above is...
