1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / beauty and the beast pillow covers 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

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / cardinal & apple place mat & potholder set 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

thanks for taking a look!
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / pink & purple parallelograms 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!

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / world map quilt 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
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / the coloradifornia cameras quilt 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
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / petite trellis 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!

7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / hexing around batik quilt 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

8  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Fun With Flags 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!

9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / classic pooh & friends cross stitch on: August 01, 2014 09:32:11 PM
hey friends!
hardy ever on the needle work section of this community, so when i have a post for it, it's quite a feat!
i decided that along with making a friend of mine this quilt for her baby, i would also make her a cross stitch to match her nursery theme of classic pooh.
i hardly ever finish a cross stitch, so deciding to do this was quite a task in itself.   oddly enough, i finished it WAY before the quilt was finished.
here are a few photos!

10  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / music themed triangle quilt on: July 31, 2014 10:47:06 PM
i wish i could come up with a much cooler name for this quilt, but i can't.
my siblings have gone to music camp for years, and this was year two of the camp deciding to have a quilt raffle to help raise money.
after trying to draw up inspiration, and then seeing waggonswest's alphabet blues quilt, i just loved the triangle idea.  i found a "quilt along" put on by the sassy quilter, and followed her directions as to how to achieve this quilt in a lap-ish size.  i followed the same quilting lines as waggonswest, and whelp.  here is the end result! (complete with cat fur that just would NOT go away)




as always, more (bigger) photos for this quilt over on it's own blog post.  click here for that!
