quilt monday

 I love this baby quilt. 

Absolutely love it. 

The softness of the fabrics, the quilting, it all went together just perfectly.

Sorry the picture quality isn't the greatest on these. 
We haven't seen the sun in what feels like forever and that makes taking quilt pics difficult.

The grey fabric is a linen look fabric and the peachy/pink has a small heart shaped floral; it is just adorable.

I used a grey grunge for the binding.

And had just enough of my favourite flannel to finish up the backing.

And now it's ready for baby.

Happy Monday!

 This is the second quilt I made for Christmas. 

I hadn't planned on making any and I find it funny that the two I did make were a queen-size quilt and a little quilt. 

But when I saw this quilt, I couldn't resist making it.

This is the Take Me to the Magic Again Snowman pattern by Sterling Quilt Co.

I've made two of Sterling's Magic quilts before, both the originals. 
You can see them here and here.

I used one of my favourite Christmas prints as the background for these cuties.

I love how the black border frames it just perfectly.

I kept the Christmas theme going with a fun plaid for the backing.

I would love a full quilt with these. 
I might have to make one for next Christmas.
Stay tuned!

 Maxine has been a longarm client for I think 6yrs, maybe 7. 

I love how she uses her fabrics; and uses up every single bit that  she can in her quilts.

A lot of her quilts, she sells at a store her sister owns. 

Here are a few of recent ones from Maxine.

quilted with Popcorn 

The quilting panto Popcorn is one of Maxine's favourites so you will see it repeated often.

This is such a fun panel.

Some lovely pinwheel quilts.

The Churn Dash is my favourite quilt block so this quilt was a favourite.
It also goes to show you how a simple block can make such an impactful quilt.

Quilts that make secondary patterns area also a favourite of mine.

Remember me??! 

I totally got out of the habit blogging  so working on that again this year.

Onto the good stuff!

Our third son asked for a quilt for Christmas. I wasn't going to make him one since I had made him a Christmas quilt for his bed last year. 

But the Wednesday before Christmas, I decided to give it a shot and cut out a quilt. The Friday and Saturday before, I sewed the top together. 

I was able to carve out 2hours on Christmas Eve for quilting.

Almost a Christmas miracle.

This is the Expanding Stars quilt by Quilt Love.

This was one of the fastest quilts I've pieced. And such a great pattern as well.

The center is a Navy print, the inner star and the background are both a white with a black and grey fleck to it.

The olive green is a linen textured fabric and lastly, and probably my favourite, the grey gingham.

The outside triangles are a solid navy and I went with a black binding.

He doesn't like flannel for quilt backings so I had some fun and made pieced up a fun backing for him.

Did I mention how big this quilt is? 
It's a 96inch square.

I wavered too long on what to quilt on this quilt and I finally went with Loop the Loop.

Seriously, I love this quilt. 
I love it so much that I may have started one for myself lol.

Happy Monday!
