QUILTS COMPLETED up to 2014

May 2015:  A TSHIRT QUILT FOR A COLLEGE GRADUATE

I have been working this month on this TShirt quilt for my college graduating grand daughter.  We are so very proud of her.  She is a "college Ninja" says her mom and dad!!  And she IS!!

The backing is a soft wonderful polar fleece.

April 2015 and UPDATE with FINISH.

I have been working all last month on a very special baby/toddler quilt for an upcoming Grandson who will be born in JULY!!  I know, isn't it amazing that I am all done except the binding and I am done BEFORE her due date??!!  It sure surprises me too, ha ha.  This was made with a large piece of fabric for the back and the borders and another piece for the binding.  The rest is from scraps that I just haphazardly put together to make the wonky log cabin blocks (that is what I am calling them).  No pattern here.  I just sewed it until it was big enough for the backing fabric and added a piece here and there to make it all fit.  I LOVED MAKING THIS QUILT.

Here is the front all pieced and I basted around the edge to get ready to put on the binding.

I flipped over the back so you can see the color scheme I was going for with this matching print.  I love how this is turning out and when I get the binding on, I will post the final photo before I mail it off to my daughter/"new mom-to-be".

UP DATE:  AND HERE IT IS ALL FINISHED, QUILTED AND BOUND - READY TO MAIL OUT!!





 I entered this quilt into Michelle's Romantic Tangle's LET'S MAKE BABY QUILTS. Quilting is More Fun Than Housework, and at FRIDAY LINKY FINISH WITH RICHARD AND TANYA.

January 2015

I have finally made some quilts.  By the looks of my previous posts, looks like it has been two years!!  Wow!!  Well, I am glad I got involved in this service project with my sisters from church.  We are making lap quilts, baby blankets and twin blankets for our local Food Pantry and Supplies.  We each made 5 blankets over the last two times we were meeting, with sweet Pauline making many many more.  Here are some photos of the blankets:

 We used flannel whole backing and different fabrics for the front.  Some we used a printed flannel for the front also.

 We tied some, machine quilted some and the smallest receiving blankets we just stitched around the edge.




 Someone put some adorable lace and strips of fabric on the back on this one before they tied it.  Really cute.  The turquoise one is flannel and the front is a gray print.

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate it.

I finished a raggedity scrappity blue jeans quilt for my grandson Collin for his 11th birthday.


The back is a single piece of polar fleece in blues, greens with skinny lines to make a plaid.

WINTER 2012
A monochromatic wonky log cabin quilt for my granddaughter Kayleigh.  I wanted her to have some comfort  while she is recovering from surgery.

Here she is when she just got home from her surgery and still very groggy.  I am so glad to see I could HUG her with my special quilt for her while she recovers.

SUMMER 2012:
My friends and I made the following quilts and donated them to QUILTS FOR KIDS:






This one was especially fun to create.  A friend gave me a panel that was to be a cloth book and asked if I could do anything with it.  I cut it apart and then got some fabrics that coordinated and made this quilt.  The back is yellow gingham and solid yellow.  I love that I was able to make a quilt from this one small panel.  It was fun to design it as well.  The stripes around each book panel were added to make the blocks bigger, and it matches the striped border.  Winnie the Pooh is such a popular nursery theme.  I am sure whomever gets this quilt will love it.

Here is a photo of the quilt I made for my granddaughter Miranda so she could bring it with her to college.  (Am I really old enough to have a granddaughter in college??!!)

Purple is her fav color so I made a pinwheels quilt with all sorts of purple prints.  SHE LOVES IT.
GIVING HER A BIG SNUGGLE WITH NANNIE BEFORE SHE HEADS OFF TO COLLEGE.

SHE HAS PURPLE PRINTED SHEETS TOO SO IT IS HARD TO SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SHEETS AND BLANKET, BUT THE QUILT IS FOLDED AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BED.

  1. Wow, you are one very talented lady, I love lilacs and purple but I think my favourite quilt you've listed is the one with Tigger and his friends. I love the fabric you've used it's makes you want to snuggle up in it. I'm pretty sure the little one receiving that would have been thrilled.
