11  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.

12  Angel wings onesie and ruffled bloomers in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: October 25, 2011 06:41:57 PM
I added the wings and the heart to the onesie.   It is so precious on a new baby.  These little ruffled bloomers are the perfect addition and so sweet.  I hope you like them.

13  My Dresden Plate Quilted Pillow in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: September 03, 2011 03:27:01 PM
I really like the look of the dresden plate quilts but wasn't sure I wanted to invest that much time into a large quilt, so I thought I'd make a pillow.  It is 20 inches square.  I put the dresden in the center and thought in looked boring so I added the quarter dresdens in each corner.  I quilted around them with perle cotton.  I added rick rack at the edges.  I'm really happy with how it turned out!

14  Julianne's doll quilt! in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: July 12, 2011 07:51:45 PM
I had made a large lap size quilt similar to this doll quilt.  I had lots of leftover strips.  I cut them down proportionally to make this quilt.  My granddaughter, Julianne, had her second birthday, so we got her this sweet doll cradle and new baby doll.  She couldn't get a new cradle and baby doll without doll quilt!


She loved them!

15  A Sherbet Pips Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: July 10, 2011 08:40:07 PM
I fell in love with this line of fabric and couldn't wait to get my hands on it.  I ordered two charm packs and then created this quilt with my own design.  It is machine pieced and hand quilted.  I added the solid colors of red, aqua and gray to the quilt.  I am really happy with the finished product.

The back of the quilt.  I love it, too.

A few close ups.

16  My Quilt quilted with perle cotton in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: June 30, 2011 01:19:15 PM
This quilt is my first attempt with pearl cotton.  I love the way it turned out.  I used different colors of the thread to coordinate with the innner quilt squares.  This stuff is not easy to sew with.  It is thick, therefore it is hard to pull through the fabric.  I then hand quilted through the solid squares point to point.

17  raw edge circle quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: March 07, 2011 02:53:48 PM
Love your blue quilt!  This is really a fun quilt to make.  I was chicken to machine quilt mine, so I hand quilted mine.  Yours is gorgeous.
Here's a picture of mine.

Oh, and it washes up really nicely.  Just trim the loose threads.

18  My Raw Edge Circle Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: September 30, 2010 07:01:02 AM
I found the tutorial for this quilt at CluckCluckSew's blog.  It is really easy, although time consuming.  I decided to use some of my 30s prints for this quilt, using old fashioned fabric in a fresh, new way.  I think it turned out great.  Love the way it looks after the wash.


I found this fabric for the back on clearance at my local quilt shop and fell in love with it.


Hope you like it!

19  My Wonky House Quilt made from my Craftster swap in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: September 19, 2010 03:59:03 PM
I love the way my wonky quilt turned out.  The blocks were made from a swap on here.  They all go together so wonderfully.  I found the perfect fabric to back it with and the stripe fabric for the binding looks great!  You swappers rock!

Here's the back.

A close up of the quilting.  I wasn't sure what to do, so I did wonky, wavy lines.

And a close up of the backing fabric.  Isn't it cute!

And one last close up of one of the houses on the back.

Hope you like it, too!

20  Another Polka Dot Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by SimplySandy on: July 27, 2010 04:24:13 PM
When I saw this quilt,http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=267680.msg3012541#msg3012541I knew I had to make one.  It's been a couple of years but I finally got a round to it. It's all hand appliqued and hand quilted.  I really like how it turned out.


Here's a shot of the back.

A close-up of the quilting

And a close-up of the pieced binding

Hope you like it!
