A Christmas present for my dear friend.  Machine-pieced and quilted using Kona cotton.  Envelope closure on back with one vintage button.

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Snow White and the Seven Squares on: December 15, 2009 08:11:41 PM
I happily started making improvisational blocks for a table runner for my friend's new custom-made modern table. I quickly realized that making the blocks was the easy part; I found it a little tricky to keep something that long and skinny straight and true. After experimenting with different "fillers," all of which looked too puffy and ruined the drape, I decided to back the pieced top with another piece of solid white cotton.

I quilted it lightly "in the ditch" to keep it pretty clean and did a simple turned-under hem around.

Although it looks a little askew in this picture, it actually is quite even:

Here it is after basting:

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Les Vehicules a Modern Stroller Quilt on: November 15, 2009 11:15:27 PM
Whole-cloth baby boy stroller-sized quilt handmade with Japanese Cosmo-Tex fabric.  Reversible quilt features vehicles on one side and graphic squares on the other.  Randomly free-motion, machine-quilted in orange thread and bound with solid baby-blue Kona cotton.  Quilt measures just over 26" square--the perfect size to tuck in neatly around baby in his car seat or stroller.

Whole-cloth baby quilt measures about 35" x 38".  Free-motion quilted.  Features vintage-looking angel fabric on one side, a green-on-green, mod polka-dot print on the other.  Thanks for looking!

8  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Zoom Zoom Stroller Quilt on: November 03, 2009 09:02:03 PM
Whole-cloth stroller quilt featuring Cosmo Tex vehicle print on one side and striped fabric on the other.  Free-motion quilted with yellow thread and bound with solid red double-bias binding.  Measures about 26" square so that it tucks in neatly around baby and doesn't drag the ground or get caught in stroller wheels.

9  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Pirate Princess - Simplicity 2561 on: November 03, 2009 08:53:42 PM
Sew I made this for my daughter after swearing (last year) that I wouldn't make any more halloween costumes.  Ya, right!  I actually enjoyed the challenge of constructing a jacket, as I am a quilter who is learning how to sew garments.  The hat was actually more difficult for me than the jacket, and I think it's because the instructions for it were a little spare. 

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Candy Pink Toddler Leg Warmers on: November 03, 2009 08:48:07 PM
Inspired by the pattern in Last Minute Knitted Gifts for the 1x1 leg warmers, I knitted these for my 20-month old daughter in Merino 5 (washable) on size 5 double-pointed needles.  I really love the "sponginess" of this knitted yarn...the warmers are really stretchy and feel yummy.
