Magnolia Mystery Quilt Finish!

I knew that it was time to finish my Magnolia Mystery quilt, but until I sat down to write this post, I didn't realize that I finished Cheryl's (Meadow Mist Designs) Magnolia Mystery Quilt in January. In May I ordered and received backing fabric, and this week I had time to finish it. Earlier this year, my oldest niece told...

Deep Dive Mini Quilt

As I mentioned in the December Patreon Mini Mini Quilts post, three of my Patreon’s unlocked rewards in December. The third patron unlocked a mini quilt reward, and when I asked if there were any preferences or things to avoid, the patron responded that they really like my tree of life (the giving tree) mini quilt and my mini mini "ohm" quilt. The...

Savannah Star – Quilt for The Quilter’s Planner

I was preparing a blog post to link up with the Best of 2017 Linky Party hosted by Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs, and I realized that I have a quilt finish from 2017 that I haven't shared about! That is very unusual for me. I figured I would share about the quilt before I posted my Best of 2017...

Freefall QAL {Finished Quilt}

It was so much fun to participate in Sandra from mmmquilts! first Quilt Along, and I am really excited to share my finished Freefall quilt today. I just love the way the Alison Glass Sunprints glow in this quilt against the darker shadow leaf (a black with white star print by Northcutt Fabrics) and the crisp Kona Cotton White background....

Baby Carter Quilt {Friday Finish}

I am still slowly getting back into a regular routine, and I am really thankful that I had the Baby Carter quilt to work on slowly. I was able to get the quilt completed and gifted at the baby shower, and it was so fun to watch the quilt get passed around and felt by everyone. I even saw the...

Four Greater Than One {QuiltCon Charity Quilt}

To meet the 2017 QuiltCon charity quilt challenge of crafting a design that plays with scale, the four Blue Moon Quilters members (Renee @Quilts of a Feather, Afton @Quilting Mod, Sara @Blue Quail Studio, and Yvonne @Quilting Jetgirl) determined that we wanted to base the quilt design on a traditional block: Storm at Sea. Collaborating together, we created a...

Cocoa Leaf Quilt Finish

I was really excited yesterday morning to get the binding sewn down to finish the Cocoa Leaf quilt. Before I jump to some finish photos, let's pause and talk a bit about trimming such a large quilt with lots and lots of negative space. Bottom line: trimming a quilt like this is a challenge. I use carpenter's squares, long metallic...

Plus Banner Quilt Finish

Next up on my to-do list was to finish a quilt to gift to my second niece. Due to being a vigorous little lass trying to kick her way out (rather literally, unfortunately), we are expecting her a bit early via a scheduled birth on November 23rd, the day before Thanksgiving. Thankfully, I have her quilt done in plenty...

Finished Doll Quilt

Having a quick finish to come home to work on after Quilt Festival was just what I needed to ease me back into sewing. It didn't take long to put the binding on the doll quilt I made for my niece, and I figured the only way to photograph the finish was with the couple of stuffed animals I...

Chakra Mini Quilt {Finished}

I liked getting the opportunity to create this mini quilt again, and it was fun to design new interior motifs for the chakras. I still think the yellow chakra is my favorite; it's just so ornate and interesting and the color just seems to glow from the design. For comparison, here are the two versions side by side (the newest finish on...

Paintbrush Studio New Block Quilt

Two and a half to three weeks ago, when I made some blocks for the Quilts of Valor block drive, a moment of realization hit me pretty hard. I exercise almost every day at a local gym and over 8 years have become close friends with a woman who used to instruct strength training classes. Almost exactly a year...

Because I have a pretty big backlog of quilts to complete at the moment, and because I have many other pulls for my time (hosting the 2016 Cloud9...

Lucent Baby Quilt {Finish}

I just love how well the Lucent baby quilt came together! The Y-Seams pieced together nicely (there are 8 in the pattern to keep the printed fabric as single cuts), the colors blend together nicely, and the quilting was just an extra fun bonus! Just like in my original Lucent quilt, I quilted around each pieced fabric and used a...

I reached out to several of her other friends, and in the end 7 of us collaborated to make this special quilt. Today, I am really excited...

High Road Low Road {Finished Quilt}

I am really pleased with how my quilt, High Road Low Road, finished. It started as a re-examination of the block and piecing technique that I used for Beacon, and morphed into something entirely new. And then I let myself play and have a lot of fun with the quilting. This is a very double sided quilt, in my opinion,...
