1  The one I didn't want to give away in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: May 06, 2014 08:35:30 PM
I love to make quilts.  And I give a lot of them away.  But this last quilt was the toughest of all to give up.  My granddaughter, Julianne asked me to make her a quilt.  She is a girly girl so she needed a feminine quilt.  I think the fabrics give it the femininity it needed.  It is Pam Kitty by Lakehouse.  I used a simple hourglass pattern.  I hand quilted it with perle cotton and added rickrack to the binding.  I just think this quilt is so sweet, I hated to part with it.  But I think the look on Julianne's face makes it all worth it.

2  A Quilt for Allie in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: December 17, 2013 06:45:24 PM
Allie is my three year old granddaughter.  She is a spunky little thing with a squeaky voice.  I decided she needed a quilt to snuggle up with.  So I created this one.  I made it with fabric I got at JoAnn's.  And backed it with flannel for extra warm cuddling.  She really liked it.  Especially, the flower.


I wish I had made her name in a little darker pink so it would show up better.

3  Little Quiltie I made for a swap in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: February 17, 2013 11:56:20 AM
I made this mini for a swap I was in on Flickr.  It is completely hand sewn, from the piecing to the quilting to the border.  I enjoy hand sewing so much.  And for a small project like this, it is very doable.  Fingers crossed my partner likes it.

5  Sweet new baby quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: January 21, 2013 04:57:59 PM
I just finished this baby quilt today.  I put it in the wash and it came out so delicious.  It was so quick and easy to make.  All I did was sandwich the backing, batting and front using spray adhesive.  Then I added the the mini charm pack of marmalade and stitched them down through all the layers.  When I finished doing all that all I had to do was bind it.

6  An Unclaimed Baby Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: October 07, 2012 12:33:04 PM
After making a lap size quilt and a doll quilt from a jelly roll, I had enough leftover fabric to make a baby quilt.  I had no one in mind when I made this quilt, but I'm sure there will be a new baby girl in the near future to claim this quilt.  I added the rickrack to the edge to give it a little character.  Each line of the quilt is hand quilted.  It came out of the wash nice and crinkly.

7  Yo Yo and Rick Rack Baby Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: April 01, 2012 06:25:47 PM



My daughter is expecting a baby girl in August.  Of course she needs a new baby quilt.  I came up with this design because I love yoyo's and I love rick rack.  I love the combination of the two, but more importantly, she loves it.

8  Doll Quilt for a Swap in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: April 01, 2012 05:15:25 PM
I made this little quilt for a swap.  It was a little hard to part with but my partner loves it.  The teeniest block is 3/4 of an inch.  It was so much fun to make.

9  My first quilt finish of 2012 in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: January 06, 2012 05:04:03 PM
I started this quilt in September and just finished it this week.  I used my go cutter to cut the fabric out.  I just wish they made it electric.  I really like the color combination of the red and aqua.  The fabric line is called "bliss" from moda.  This quilt lives in my youngest daughter's house now.  I know it will get lots of use there.

10  Doll Quilt for my Granddaughter in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: November 15, 2011 06:19:10 PM
My granddaughter's 6th birthday is coming up and I wanted to make something special for her.  I decided to make a baby doll quilt for her. (Now I need to get her a new baby doll to go with it.)  I think she will like it.  I made it with yo yos and quilted it with perle cotton.  I think I'm getting the hang of quilting with it now.  And I love the look of the hand stitching with it.


A close up

Looks like it's going to work just fine.
