Well, this one was a surprise for this year. I actually bought the kit last year thinking it was all blues. When I got the fabric I was disappointed with all the non-blue fabric. In October I finally decided to make the quilt. Wow…lots of little pieces. I actually went through two spools of thread. I got it to the long-armer so late I wasn’t expecting it until late January. She surprised me getting it done so early and she did a great job with the quilting. Not sure you can see it but it’s all done in Christmas ornaments. I may not be crazy about the purple and pink but I really like the way the quilt turned out.
Here’s the Cat-in-the-Hat quilt that I will be keeping. There are two things different from Carter’s quilt (#18). Can you see what they are?
The Lorax. Fun movie, fun quilt. Didn’t have a pattern for this. I saw one that Kathy at Quilter’s Cottage did, without a pattern, and I modeled mine after hers. This one will stay with us. 🙂
Sentiments. This is one of this year’s Christmas quilts. It started out as a kit but I do not like wall hangings so I turned it into a lap quilt. In doing so, I ended up pretty much rewriting the entire pattern. The fabric is pretty cool so it was worth it.
Yea! Another Seuss quilt. I did this for Carter. I was rewarded with a brilliant smile when he saw it. I like this one so much I am going to do one for us too.
I did this one for the Teen Auction at church. I really liked the way it turned out. I also liked the pattern that Carrol used on the longarming. Be sure to check that out.
Cooper has a Seuss quilt so Colby needed one too, right? This was supposed to be a fairly random sort of pattern. You can see it didn’t quite happen that way. Without realizing I was doing it, I cut everything at the same angle, so all blocks are tilted by the same degree, just different directions. OCD is wonderful, isn’t it?
The Itsy Bitsy Spider pattern for Gary and Cheryl Rinehart’s first grandbaby. I was working on a deadline for this quilt. It was an easy pattern that produced a pretty cool quilt.
Yeah, I’m partial. I did two quilts for BJ. I designed this one myself and even picked out the fabric. Of course, before I purchased it I had someone in the shop validate it.
Baby quilt for my soon-to-be grandson. This is one of my favorite patterns (in case you haven’t noticed). The fabric has bugs and animals all over it.
