This Zoe quilt is almost exactly like the first…just with a completely different color scheme! My friend who ‘commissioned’ me to make this quilt looked through my gallery of quilts and fell in love with this design…interestingly enough the quilt was for her newly adopted niece, Zoe! What are the odds of two Zoe quilts in the same year? Haha! Anyway, she chose the color scheme, and I think it turned out AWESOME!
This quilt was given as a gift to a new bride and groom on their wedding day. After working with so many baby quilts it felt HUGE! Can you see the theme? I’m on a roll with name quilts! This quilt was made to be used and was given to the new couple with instructions to use it for cuddling on the couch together on cool winter nights to tossing it on the ground for pick nicks on warm summer days! Hopefully it will see many years of memories!
A quilt for baby Steele. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the quilting on this little gem. I did what I call a ‘straight line stipple’ – none of the lines intersect. It made a very cool effect that highlighted the main print, which was robots!
A super sweet little quilt. I love all the ‘white space’ and the simplistic design of this one. I didn’t follow a pattern for this quilt, just came up with the concept and started to sew. One of my favorite aspects of this quilt are the angled corners, they add a little extra pizazz to an otherwise simple design.
This was such a fun, quick little baby quilt to make. I didn’t follow a pattern, just kind of went as I sewed. I LOVE it! The back is a coordinating blue gingham flannel. It is quilted in straight lines, which made for a really cool effect.
Jen, a friend of mine, commissioned this quilt. She brought all the fabric to me, told me what she had in mind. It turned out darling. Although it was a pain in the tush to work with, the satin ruffle edge is adorable. The back is pink minky-dot. I only ‘quilted’ it minimally. A few lines ‘stitched in the ditch’ for stability.
Whew! I didn’t know what I was getting myself into when I started this quilt. I love the look of it, love the idea of it, love the color of it and how it turned out, but I didn’t love constructing it. It looked so simple, but turned out to be quite a bit of work. Although, TOTALLY worth it because of who it was for though (my newest niece, Ella!) The pattern was from the Oh Fransson blog. I quilted it by stitching in the ditch along the yellow sashing, and one line through the middle of the yellow sashing, and then stippled throughout the patterned hour glass shapes. – This was my second go at a ‘pieced’ quilt back. Love it!
Crazy 9-Patch Lattice Quilt – Nov 2010
I LOVED making this quilt! I got the pattern from Elizabeth Hartman on the Oh Fransson blog (http://www.ohfransson.com/ ) Most of the material was purchased at Material Girls Quilt Shop in South Jordan, Ut. I’ve never worked with so much solid color, but I love it. The pink/green/yellow combination was a new color scheme for me too, but it turned out great! I quilted it by sewing circles, I think it is called ‘pebble quilting.
Snow Family – Jan 2010
I picked up the snowman panel a few years back with the intention of making a quilt for Scott’s parents. When I finally sat down to make something happen, this is what I came up with. The letters are appliqued, and then I did a crazy double-loopy quilting around the border. I was not happy with the quilting at first, but it has grown on me. I backed it with flannel so that it would be nice and soft to cuddle with on cold winter nights.
Bow Tie Quilt – March 2009
I got the inspiration and directions for this quit from the Moda Bakeshop blog (http://www.modabakeshop.com/). The fabric is kind of old school and was PERFECT for my mom. My mom was involved in a crazy freak encounter with a mastiff dog, this was my way to send her a little comfort. I know it is random, but it was my way to be able to keep her warm and share my love from 2,000 miles away.
Scrappy Hearts Quilt – January 2009
This was a super fun quilt to make. Time consuming, but fun! The awesome thing about this quilt is that there is material from all over the world it in. From Egypt to Mexico to Maryland to Utah, and lots of other places in between. This is one of the few (maybe only) quilts I have actually kept for myself.
