11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Yellow, Green, Flowers and a White Pelican on: May 07, 2015 01:40:23 PM
I offered to make a wall quilt for my mom and asked for suggestions of colors and themes.  Thinking she would just tell me to make whatever I wanted, I was quite surprised when she came back with specifics.

She wanted me to use Green and Yellow, Flowers and a White Pelican.  She said her and Dad decided they should give me a challenge so got specific with the bird.

The measurements are 31" x 11" - strange dimensions but when you aren't working from a pattern, that's what happens.


Much thought went into this project, the most being how to fit a Pelican in.  I found a picture online of a pieced pelican and based my pattern on that.  Not wanting to applique the Pelican, I used the pot material and then cut it to shape.


I wasn't sure if she wanted flowers in the project or just on the material so I covered all my bases.  I had some large floral print fabric so cut these out and made them dimensional by not fully attaching them to the quilt.

I've had a table runner similar to this on my 'to make' list for quite some time.  When I saw that my partner in the Geezer Swap had the same one pinned, I knew what I was making.  I now know that wasn't a smart idea as it was very hard to part with.  The creator of the runner this is based on is unknown to me, as it's just a photo, so I can't give credit where it's due.  This hanging is about 14" x 30".

13  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / March's Little Quilt on: March 12, 2015 01:10:43 PM
Another month of Little Quilts finished.  I love bright colors and wanted to use lots for this one.  Most of the fabric, other than the center, is from my scrap bin.

You can't tell but each flower has a circle quilted in the middle, the center of the corner flowers is quilted and I stitched in the ditch around each dark section of the flying geese.

15  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Black Tie Affair on: March 01, 2015 05:38:52 PM
This quilt pattern is from the January/February 2014 edition of Quiltmaker.  The quilting first caught my attention and then the colors.  The top was finished quite awhile ago but all the quilting intimidated me as I usually just stitch in the ditch.  Finally I decided to just do it and finished yesterday.

17  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Downton Abbey on: January 10, 2015 08:46:15 PM
I have to laugh when I read my subject line - Downton Abbey - I know nothing about it except that it's a British television show.

I have a friend, though, that loves it and when I told her last March that I had seen Downton Abbey fabric, she joked that I should buy some and make her a quilt for her birthday.  I thought, why not!  I purchased it in April planning to have it done well before her December birthday.  Yup, that was the plan but it didn't happen.  So tomorrow I'll be giving her a late birthday present.  I never would have dreamed of making her something, let alone a quilt, but when she gave me that idea, I took the opportunity.

Disappearing 9 patch with a pieced border.


First, and probably last, time I've done a pieced quilt back.  It was hard to get it centered and if anyone were to measure, you'd discover I'm off by an inch.

The 9 fabrics I used from this line - what a hard decision to make.  This is no where close to my style so I tried to think of her house and what would go well in it.  She's very Victorian and has said many times she was born in the wrong era.


18  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / January's Little Quilt on: January 06, 2015 03:21:45 PM
I recently joined an on-line quilt group and we are making Little Quilts each month.  I decided it would be best to try and finish them the first day the patterns are released so that I actually make them.

This is January's and it's 15" x 16".

20  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Teapot Cozies on: December 28, 2014 08:28:47 PM
I've had a teapot cozy my MIL gave me many years ago but I've never really liked it because the creator didn't pay attention to the fabric and the objects on one side are upside down.  I finally decided to make my own by taking that one apart and using it for a pattern.

The green snowflake one was my first attempt and when it was finished I thought it was a little too snug.  I then enlarged the pattern and made the sunflower one.  Once I put that on the teapot I realized it was too big.  Back I went to the snowflakes and with a bit of figuring I was able to make it fit, which I'm very happy about because that's some of my favorite fabric.

The center layer of each cozy is heat proof batting, like you use in oven mitts.
