quilt monday

I made one of these heart quilts earlier this year and knew I had to do one for myself. I will admit to not paying close attention to the piecing of this and ended up taking it entirely apart as some of the rectangles shifted.

I kept the quilt simple and again went with a meander. I used a script print for the red fabric.

Probably should have given this a good ironing before taking the pictures but it's just getting folded back up again until next February lol.

Piecing directions can be found here.

modern edge

A majority of my longarming clients are older so I get excited when I get a modern themed quilt to quilt. Even more excited when it's one of my 'grandma' clients who has made it.

Margaret made this quilt for her granddaughter.

The straight line quilting was the perfect finishing touch.

Lysa made this quilt. 

More straight lines for it.

Sheila made this for an upcoming grandson; he'll be arriving any day!

I absolutely love how this one turned out; so cute!

Lily is on holidays right now and hasn't picked this up yet. I just might have to keep it lol!

weekend wrap-up

We had a fabulous Easter weekend. The weather turned out to be better than forecasted so we enjoyed lots of time outside.

Even though today was a holiday, I ended up working. I lost some time last week and needed to make it up to keep on schedule and with Jim working today as well, it worked out(lol).

I was able to sneak in some sewing time and managed to finally get boy2's quilt top together; now it just needs borders.

Hope you had a fabulous weekend as well.

quilt monday

I got my PB&J quilt finished up last week.

The quilting is certainly not perfect but it works.

Another fabric line I regret not hoarding.

Just a simple 9patch and I added in the sashing. Simply perfect.

bloggers beware!!

**Good news! The website has been taken down!**

 I received an Instagram message from PoppyPrint last night informing me that a website, quiltpatternspro(I am NOT linking them) had stolen yesterday's QuiltMonday post.

After doing some checking, I discovered that the website has been stealing my content since earlier this year. And I'm not the only one.

The Bitchy Stitcher sounded the alarm yesterday and posted this post on what you can do if you have been reposted. What's funny is the website has reposted her complaint post :)

So please, check the site if your blog is listed. If so, you can issue a complaint to GoDaddy.com(or click the link here).

quilt monday

I made this quilt back in January and just had a chance last week to get it quilted. I know what you are saying; it's a Christmas quilt! but I'm trying hard to not let my unquilted quilts overwhelm me. Plus I can make more new ones as I quilt the others lol.

quilted with mod dots

I absolutely love the quilting.

I fussy cut the border fabric to make it directional.

And I really, really like this colour scheme. More than I thought I would.

I just might have to keep it!

snack saturday

Disappearing  Chocolate Cake

1/2 cup butter
2 cups sugar
1tsp vanilla
2 eggs
3/4 cup cocoa
1 3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/8tsp salt
1 1/2-1 3/4 cup milk as needed
*sometimes I add in a handful or two of chocolate chips*

Mix the first four ingredients. Add cocoa and mix well.
In separate bowl, sift dry ingredients together.
Add dry ingredients and milk alternately to wet ingredients. Mix all together.

Pour into greased pan(I like using my bundt pan) this fits in a 9x13, or an 8x8 and gives you 6 cupcakes)
Bake at 350*F for approximately 25-30 minutes.
Cake will bounce back when touched.

middles and finishes

I was going through my unblogged photos and found some quilts I hadn't blogged yet.

I had a remnant of this yellow minkee; too small for a quilt back, I wasn't really sure what to do with it.  A girlfriend mentioned that her daughter had gotten too big for her stroller quilt and light bulb moment! I picked up another piece of minkee the same size and just quilted a meander on it.

I used a nice thick batting and the quilting looks like it is imprinted on the fabric; love it.

A cousin had another sweet little baby so I got this next one quilted up for her. Unfortunately this is the only picture I have.

quilted with Daisy3
This was an older charm pack and I lucked out finding the green polka dot for a border. Such an adorable quilt. Almost as cute as little baby Mae!

I am slowly getting J's quilt put together. It's taking way longer than I had expected.

I really love working with batiks and these watercolour fabrics(by Hoffman) may just be my favorite!

customer quilts

I always try and take most of spring break off but this year I had to work a few days. Here's what I finished for my clients.

Audrey pieced this panel quilt.
