Farewell Quilts

I made quilts for the two girls that I've nannied for the last two years. Hopefully they will be able to enjoy them for many years!

Rugs, rugs and more rugs!

Here's some finished and in progress rugs. Most of them are made using the "Toothbrush" or "Amish knot" technique. One of the rugs in progress is made from hooking fabric strips into burlap

Mini Quilt

Something I whipped up awhile ago during a snow day. Something I mutter to myself a lot

Hope Pillow

I've been saving this block for awhile. Wasn't sure what I would use it for until now!

Diamond kid quilt

Made for a dear friend who is adopting from China. I used the "gemology" quilt pattern and embroidered lightning bolts around the diamonds.

Clamshell Quilt

First time sewing a curved piecing quilt! Made for a friend who's getting married in May. I decided to use fleece on the back with no batting and hand quilt the whole thing together.

Giant Hexie quilt

I really hated working on this quilt. It felt my disdain and decided to turn out wonky. It's being given away as a Christmas present. I just hope they like it better than I do!

Mom's New and improved Quilt

This quilt was so fun to put together. I originally had a different design in mind, using just half square triangle blocks like the nine in the center. As I started laying them out I really didn't like it.  I then decided to base the quilt around the blocks I loved the most and do fun borders with the left over HST's. 

Quite possibly my favorite part about this quilt are the "tall tails" blocks I made. Plus they're a free pattern!

This quilt is Queen-size so I decided to hand quilt it 

This isn't a great pic, but it shows you a little bit of the quilting I did.

Hexagon scrap quilt

A couple months ago I started sewing together my random hexagon projects and orphan blocks with the intent to make a quilt. It's very random and it has been fun making it up as I go along. I'm trying to use up lots of scraps and remnants and hoping to at least (eventually) get to a throw size quilt.

Typewriter Skirt

This skirt was quite an ordeal. I kept buying the wrong size pattern and found out the orginal fabric I wanted to use wasn't enough yardage. Kerfuffle after kerfuffle and months of letting the pattern and fabric hide in the closet I finally got up the courage to make this simplicity skirt (1369). I had to adjust the back seam twice because it came out HUGE. Simplicity right? Isn't this supposed to be simple? Ah well, it's done and I'm okay - ish with it. Points for having pockets and a cute print. Negative points for making me feel like a poofy muffin.

Crazy flying geese quilt

Finished this crazy colorful quilt! It's full of mistakes and quirks but I love it! I was able to use all the scrap triangles from the flying geese to make hst and incorporate them in the quilt. I also had random orphan blocks that I was able to throw in the mix as well. I  mostly machine quilted this and then went back over certain sections and hand quilted just for an extra finishing touch.
