Cloudy Night Sky {Finished Quilt}

Cloudy Night Sky is finished and officially submitted for consideration to QuiltCon! I have no idea how many total hours I spent making the quilt, but I know I spent over 40 hours on the quilting alone. You probably want to see finished photographs, but I do love to share about the nerdy stuff, so first I am going...

Congruence {Finished Quilt}

I had planned to have Congruence finished about a month ago, but life had other plans. I'm grateful that it's complete, and I'm really pleased that the extra time I needed to take forced me to think a little bit more about the quilting plan. I'm absolutely thrilled with this finish! After quilting and trimming the quilt square, Congruence measures...

Space Arcade {Finished Quilt}

I am really thrilled with my first Night Garden bonus quilt finish, Space Arcade. For a quick recap, I made the queen size version of Night Garden for my sister- and brother-in-law. From the queen size version of Night Garden, there are enough large scraps created in piecing the quilt top that I also designed 2 additional throw size quilts...

Night Garden {Finished Quilt}

My hands are happy to say that I finished hand binding the queen size Night Garden quilt and it is complete! A 90" wide by 100" tall quilt was much, much larger than my husband could reasonably hold up. Some friends stopped by at the end of last week, and I was musing about what I could do to hold...

Project Quilting 14.5 {Not a Square}

When the prompt came out on Sunday for Project Quilting, Sew Not a Square, I knew immediately what I wanted to do: I wanted to create a baby sized quilt using improv curves. I went to my scraps and pulled out my solids that ranged from red/orange through teal. I immediately fell in love with the idea of the quilt...

Garden Peony {Finished Quilt}

I love finishing the binding of my quilts by hand. That doesn't mean I hand bind all of my projects; I'm not totally crazy! Sometimes it's more practical to finish binding by machine, but I definitely enjoyed the process of getting to spend a bit more time with Garden Peony as I stitched the binding to the back by...

Meringue {Finished Quilt}

Today is a doubly good day; my brother is celebrating a milestone birthday today (happy birthday, C!) and I have a quilt finish to share! I had a lot of fun adding the quilting detail to Meringue. I started in the center and quilted my way from darkest to lightest and then finished with the background quilting. As I mentioned...

Sequenced Quilt

The quilting on Sequenced, the bonus Sesen quilt, came together much quicker than I anticipated, and I just love the additional texture and detail it gives the design! Sequenced is a 60" x 80" quilt, which was a comfortable size for my husband to hold inside when we tested out holding the quilt... but he had to balance on his...

Planview {QAL Finish}

I'm really happy to get to share the finished Planview quilt that I made during the quilt along. I made the baby size in the lava colorway, and I couldn't be happier with how it all came together! As much as I love a good all over finish photograph, I wanted to lead with a photo of the back of...

Sesen {Finished Quilt}

I had originally thought that I would make this second version of my Sesen design back in June, but then life happened. I'm actually really glad that making the quilt got delayed. Due to other work this year, I opted to change how the pattern is written which makes the quilt come together so much better. I will be...

Sky Full of Stars {Finished Quilt}

Well, in the end I stuck with the 1" quilting density for Sky Full of Stars. The quilting seems to be just what the quilt needed, and I probably didn't have enough of the dark navy thread to double the density. The quilt finished at 48" square after quilting and binding. I love how the quilt shows off both the...

Mum’s Garden {Finished Quilt}

Mum's Garden took me a month from start to finish, although I was itching to use the color palette starting back in April when I brought home all those Kona Cotton solids from my closing local quilt shop. It is definitely one of my favorite quilts I've made so far. This quilt has been a joy to work on;...

Downstream {Pattern Release}

A little over 3 years ago, I made a quilt I named "Downstream" for the Quilt Design a Day QuiltCon exhibit. I used paper piecing to make the quilt, so when I considered writing a pattern for it, I struggled with how to offer it in sizes larger than the wall hanging size I created due to the ridiculous...

One of my favorite things to sew while traveling this summer was the Baby Wonder quilt top in Wonder Woman colors. With a small break in between projects at the end of November, I eagerly pulled out the quilt top and finished it. Now that the quilt has been gifted/received, I can share about how it came together. A recent...

Push-Pull {Completed Quilt}

I was able to finish hand stitching the binding on a lap sized version of Push-Pull the day after Thanksgiving, and I am so smitten with how it all came together! I used Northcott ColorWorks Premium Solids in Iris, Heather, and Lilac Mist. The backing is Iris and the binding is Heather. After quilting and binding, it finished at 65"...

I wasn't surprised to realize that I did not have enough fabric to make my initial November MDL Design Idea that I shared early last week. I didn't need to change much, and I have to admit that I really liked how the design evolved with just those few changes. After getting the design modified for the fabric I had...

Stone Sheep Mini Quilt: Complete!

It is my great pleasure to share with you the completed Stone Sheep Mini quilt today! I put a lot of thought and time into alternate ways of finishing this mini quilt: should I stretch it across a canvas or frame it or put it in a shadow box? After exploring all my options, I opted for a black binding...
