Ashley's baby quilt

This baby quilt was a quick project. I started out with a remnant piece of fabric. This fabric had 6 almost 12" squares on it. I cut out each square at 11½". I added sashing and borders and voila, quick and cute baby quilt. Check out the remnants bin at the store you never know what you may find.

Sports themed quilt

I just finished a sports themed  quilt for one of my husband's coworkers. I am so loving the way it turned out that I might make a pattern for it but using a focal fabric instead. I would love to hear your thoughts.



The quilting was done by Anneke Wheaton from The Last Stitch longarm quilting.

Mocha Joe

Here is another quilt pattern that I tested for TQPM . I really recommend getting a subscription to this online quilt magazine if you haven't already. 

Mocha Joe is designed by Isobel Meekins. This is a great project for beginners. Check it out in the December 2016 issue.

Sorry I haven't posted

Wow November has just flown by. I have been busy, busy, busy. My husband who I love dearly, has a friend who asked about commissioning a quilt. He told him upfront what the fabric and quilting would cost and on top of that price would be the labor. This guy didn't blink an eye at the cost, he handed my husband $200.00 deposit for fabric to get started. The quilt has 4 different sports teams in it so I did a simple pattern. It is now at the quilters. As soon as it returns and I get the binding on, I will post a picture.

Everyone have a great holiday.

Spooling Around

This quilt pattern I tested for TQPM. When I was picking my fabrics I had a little person already in mind. The pattern is available in this month's (November 2016) issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine. I did the binding in yellow and it has tractors on the back. Sorry I don't have a picture of it completed.

Retreat Top Reveal

I finished my retreat top on Friday. I am so in love with this quilt. I have planned on getting it quilted by a professional longarm quilter. I'm thinking a falling snowflake pattern. Here it is, the picture doesn't do it justice.





Here is a close up of the middle.
