Fabric Pumpkins

Getting ready for Fall. Fall is just around the corner so I thought I would make a few fabric pumpkins. This was a fun and easy way to use up some of my scraps. I got the cute sign at The Dollar Tree.

Three quilts for Christmas

I know that I haven't blogged much but I have been busy finishing up 3 quilts for Christmas gifts. The first one was a test pattern that I had done for a magazine. It is called Mocha Joe and the pattern can be found in the December 2016 issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine.  I only have a photo of the finished top not the completed quilt.


The other 2 are horse themed panel quilts. I only have a photo of one of them. This was taken during the sandwiching process.

Scrappy block

I have completed the scrappy block that I will be using for my Scrappy Domino's quilt. I still have a bunch more to make. I haven't decided yet what size I will be making. It will depend on how many black and white blocks I can make from just my scraps.

New scrappy project

I have started a new scrappy project. It's a simple block that I will be doing. I am hoping to use quite a few scraps up. I will be doing them as leaders and enders. Here are 3 of the blocks that I have completed so far. I plan on using black and white blocks as alternates.

Horse Pillow

I whipped up a quick pillow for a friends birthday. She is a horse person, so I used some horse fabric to make this pillow. The back of the pillow has matching fabric to the backing of a quilt that I have made for her for Christmas this year. Also 3 of the fabrics in the pillow are in the quilt.

9 Patch Row Mystery Quilt

This is one of the quilt tops that I have been working on. The finishing instructions came out this month. It was a fun and easy mystery QAL. 




I added 1½" sashing between the rows because I wanted it to be more like a bedspread for the full size bed in our spare room.

You can find the pattern at:

Purple Sage top completed

I finished the "Purple Sage" top the other day. It will be going on our Ca king after it has been quilted. I will be sending this one out to the longarm quilter that I use. It is way too big for me to quilt on my little machine.



It is so big that I could get a complete picture of it. There is another diamond border on the bottom.

Thanks for stopping by.

Sports Fan pillow

Hey guys, I thought I show you a great gift for that sports fan in your life. It can be made with team fabric and coordinating colors or just make it with team colors. This is my SF Giants pillow. 



It is a 15" block made into an 18" pillow. I still need to get the pillow foam for it. I put it in a 16" pillow form so everyone could see it better. If I get interest on how to make this one, I will write up a free pattern for it.

Thanks for stopping by.

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.
