Wonky Pinwheel Quilt finished

The Wonky Pinwheel - Whiriligigs Quilt is finally finished!

I love how it turned out. The colors in the Sanae line are great, and I really like it paired with the brown. I used the super soft minkee for the back.
It is so soft and super snuggly. And it really wants me to curl up on the couch with it.
This is a very generous size cuddle quilt. It is going to my sister, who is going through a really tough time, and deserves all the happiness in the world.
I even put a label on the back. I'm so proud of me.
If you want to make one, the tutorial is here.

Fire and WIPs

I love to have dinner around a fire...
...even if it is just hot dogs.
At least we wrapped it up with s'mores.

I've made some good progress on my Halloween quilt. This is not at all what I started out to make, but I really like how it's ending up. I've got to get some fabric for the back, and figure out how to quilt it.

Here a a few WIPs.
I did actually get in a finish also, but just no pictures yet. Soon!

Pay it Forward

It works like this: the first three people to comment on this post and say they want to play along will get something handmade by me. I then have 365 days to make good. (I promise not to take that long.)

Anyone with a blog can join, it doesn't need to be something quilty, just something handmade for the next person.

To receive something from me, you need to play along too. You will need to post about it with the logo just as I have as soon as you sign up!
Please leave a comment if you would like to receive a little something from me! (Be sure to have an email address for me to contact you.)


Aren't these little monsters so cute?
I'm thinking I might just get these done in time for next Halloween...

...but I did finally get this on the machine to be quilted.

"First Snow" Quilt

It's finished!

Here it is in all it's quilted and washed crinkly goodness. I'm lovin' it. I'm so happy with how it all came together.
I was having some major tension issues, so the quilting on the back isn't great, but oh well. I still love it. When I showed it to my Mom she said it looked fresh like the first snow, so that's where the name came from.
Today it makes me happy.

Bloggers Quilt Festival 2009

Welcome to my entry of Bloggers Quilt Festival 2009.
Thanks to Park City Girl for getting us all organized again!

This quilt was a lot of firsts for me.

This definitely wasn't my first quilt, but it is from the beginning of my quilting obsession.
I actually followed a pattern! You just don't know how hard that is for me. I don't do it often.
This is one of the largest quilts I had ever done.
I had never used triangles like these before. I changed my mind on the fabric and layout sooo many times, it's ridiculous. But once it finally all came together, I think it turn
ed out great.

I made this quilt for Gracie for Christmas in 2007. That was right before I got my longarm quilting machine. I got this back from having it quilted on the 23rd of December. I was very worried I wouldn't have it in time for Christmas. I wasn't able to get binding on it until after Christmas. Gracie didn't seem to mind.
Thanks for stopping by!

Figgy Pudding Charm Quilt

I've finally taken some pictures of my Figgy Pudding Christmas Quilt.
I just love this line for Moda--Figgy Pudding fabrics by Basic Grey; Gorgeous Modern Holiday Prints in Rich Red, Chocolate Brown, Juniper Green, Spa Blue and Crystal White.
I used the full line with a couple of other prints thrown in for interest. I love what a fun feel this quilt has, and I'm loving the aqua and red together for Christmas.
I quilted it in an all over Loops and Holly design with green thread.
It is newly listed in my Shop.


October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.
I found this on Mormon Modern's blog.
