1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Toddler cowboy quilt on: September 06, 2010 07:43:47 PM
I made this for a friends sons second birthday. It is about 36x50 inches. Good for a crib or tea party (I have a daughter). The background is made up of several well worn pairs of jeans and a demin shirt. It is so soft, but has a really nice weight to it. I want to make a denim quilt for myself one day. I wanted to put something in the pocket like a magnetic lasso game with a little stuffed horse, but I ran out of time.

There are horse shoes in the yellow denim thread throughout the background

I love the letters, the took a while to do. I was so excited when I found the fabric

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / blue turtle baby quilt on: July 01, 2010 11:29:29 AM
I made this for my husband's friend who has a baby in the NICU. Its pretty small, I used a blanket that was similar in size for the base of my son's isolette when he was in the NICU. It is also a perfect fit for the bottom of the bassinet, the infant carrier, or may be a good doll blanket one day.
I used blue scraps from my collection, white wool felt for the turtle, and white bias tape for the name.
I used this tutorial to do the hexagon background, it was much easier than I thought it would be http://www.ladyharvatine.com/2010/03/hexagonia.html

I was only going to make a shirt for my son, but then made the dress for my daughter and thought it was a waste of some good cutting not to use the reverse.

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / easter egg shakers for kids on: April 08, 2010 11:37:17 AM
In preparation for a last min easter egg hung . . I took some cheap plastic eggs, threw in some dried beans, paper mached them with watered down elmers white glue and white crepe streamers, (everything I already had in my house) then my daughter and her friend painted and glittered them. I made a little package for them so none of of the really young kids  stuck them in their mouths.

8  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Elliot's Baby Quilt on: April 08, 2010 05:32:00 AM
I finally finished my sons quilt. We did not find out the sex before we had him. So I made the black/white/rainbow front first and then after he was born made the elephant backing with his name. He was born early and in the NICU for a few weeks so I took the leftovers and made him a quick little quilt to put in his isolette at the hospital.



9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Baby name book on: January 22, 2010 04:37:53 PM
I made this book for Preston's first Birthday. I was inspired by this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=281256.0 and other incredible craftster artists.
I tried and tried to think of a perfect title, but I never did, so I went with a simple cover. i love the vintage look of this fabric





I printed the label on my inkjet printer by ironing the fabric to a piece of freezer paper and running it through the printer. I heat set it and soaked it in water to make sure it did not bleed.

10  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Advanced beginner online block of the month starting in jan 2010?? on: December 14, 2009 07:16:41 AM
I would like to find an online block of the month club starting in Jan 2010 where they send you instructions and you use your own fabric and can keep up and share/discuss your progress online. Does any one know of any?? I have made a few simple quilts, I want to learn some new things. I do love the modern styles, but also want to learn some more traditional blocks.

Thanks
