Quilt #22

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.

Quilt #20

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.  🙂

Quilt #19

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.

 

 

Quilt #18

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.

Quilt #17

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.

 

Quilt #16

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?

Quilt #15

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.

Quilt #14

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.
