1  daffodils and kitty cats in Quilting: Completed Projects by emisaurus on: July 30, 2015 09:05:49 PM

i have a dear friend of mine from middle school who just had her first baby.
she's quite the cat lover, and also loves daffodils (which i learned thanks to her commenting it was her baby's birth flower)
i combined some of oh frasson's cat blocks with a paper pieced daffodil block i stumbled upon and created this little quilt!

i found this perfect piece of fabric on ebay for the backing Smiley

this quilt was the first time i used a walking foot (and used the plastic guide foot) so the quilting ended up a little wonky in places, but i have absolutely fallen in love with how much easier life is with such a foot!
thanks for stopping by Smiley

2  Paper Pieced Tabby Mini Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by emisaurus on: July 20, 2015 03:55:13 PM

i participated in my first (and so far only) instagram swap this year, and of course it was kitty themed!
i found this pattern on craftsy and thought it would be a perfect mini quilt to make since i've been doing more and more paper piecing lately.

the block itself is about 12" and i used a stitch in the ditch for quilting it.
all the fabric with the exception of the crosshatch grays & backing came from things my grandma gave me.
here's a photo of the back, which i got on ebay for a steal, and perfectly matches the crosshatching of the gray fabrics!

3  beauty and the beast pillow covers in Quilting: Completed Projects by emisaurus on: April 12, 2015 01:56:15 PM

i recently saw that the latest disney swap round needed a swap angel, so of course i had to jump in!
she had a love for beauty and the beast, and needed some home decor type items for her house.
i had always been eyeballing fandom in stitches' paper pieced patterns, so i finally went for one!
i blew them up over 200% and created some pillow covers.
i stitched in the ditch (mostly) around the basic outlines, and then attached the "envelope" cover part using a pinterest tutorial Smiley




can't wait for another disney project after this one Smiley

4  cardinal & apple place mat & potholder set in Quilting: Completed Projects by emisaurus on: April 07, 2015 07:01:39 PM

i did some paper piecing this past holiday season to create some gifts for my grandma per request of my mom.
i found a cute cardinal pattern that actually had both directions of birds on it which worked wonderfully for the placemats!
the apple was another pattern i found on craftsy to create a pot holder to go with the red accented kitchen
i was quite impressed with how quickly these tiny projects went together compared to a normal quilt Smiley

5  pink & purple parallelograms in Quilting: Completed Projects by emisaurus on: April 07, 2015 06:44:22 PM

this quilt was another request from my aunt, this time for a baby girl with a "rosey pink" color/bird nursery theme.
i found the backing fabric at joann's and used it as my color basis for the front.
initially the layout was going to be completely different, but once my pieces created this "parallelogram" pattern shape, i decided to go with it!


thanks for stopping by!

6  world map quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by emisaurus on: April 06, 2015 05:05:22 PM

my aunt asked me to make a quilt for one of her coworkers, this one for a baby boy with a "travel" theme to their nursery.
i had some cute fabric already, but not enough to do anything with, so i hit up pinterest and found this super cute map quilt.
totally not my typical quilt making style, but i absolutely love the end result of it!
the worst part was printing out 30 pages of pattern, taping together and making individual pieces to cut out.  thankfully, my mom surprised me by doing that while i was out and about that day Smiley



more photos and such on my blog post!
thanks for taking a look Smiley

7  the coloradifornia cameras quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by emisaurus on: November 16, 2014 09:27:11 PM

two states, one fantastic quilt
i visited my cousin in colorado this summer, and we found this AMAZING quilt store (that we happened to visit four times in the week i was there)
i had an idea for my sewvivor sewalong lap quilt, and after one visit, i knew exactly how to execute it.
the pattern was the vintage cameras quilt by carina gardner and with a few tweaks in size and colors, i made it my own!



this quilt got it's name by the camera fabrics being from colorado, and the background, border & backing all being from california Smiley
a whole lot more photos on my blog.  be sure to check it out here: toothpaste and orange cat

and of course, the cute minion that helped me pick out the colors & lay out my fat quarters after ironing Smiley

8  petite trellis in Quilting: Completed Projects by emisaurus on: October 19, 2014 02:07:55 PM

i spent a week of my summer in colorado, hoping to see my cousin's child firsthand...
that baby had other plans, but I was glad I was able to leave him a little something upon his arrival.
when she found out baby #3 was going to be a boy, i knew that meant super heros, but i also knew i had to work cats in there, just to bother her husband.
i remembered this fantastic kliban cat sheet i had seen on ebay for years, and so i purchased it to use as the back and found a great "petite trellis" pattern for the front.
this pattern was something new and different from the typical baby quilt colors & patterns i had done, and i loved it!

9  hexing around batik quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by emisaurus on: October 19, 2014 01:52:29 PM

another little quilt from the sewvivor sewalong i participated in this past summer.
i used the hexing around tutorial from freshly pieced to create these blocks, and then sewed them together to form this mini quilt!
a simple stitch in the ditch was enough for me, and i love the quilting look on the back Smiley

10  Fun With Flags in Quilting: Completed Projects by emisaurus on: September 29, 2014 05:14:21 PM
I recently wrapped up participating in family ever after's sew-vivor sewalong, and now have time to get to sharing the quilts on here!
the first challenge was nautical, and after much hemming and hawing over what to do, i realized all that came to mind was sheldon cooper's fun with flags.
i took that idea and ran with it, creating this little quilt using the bartholo-meow's reef fabric line.
oh how i wish it was much bigger!
