I love the little details like the embroidered H on his belt and the horseshoes!  Great job!

I love all the blues but especially love the border fabric!  I am jealous that your beginning quilt class you did a whole quilt...for mine we made two different blocks which are both sitting unused in my craft closet because I can't figure out what to do with them Sad  Since my first "Quilting 101" class I've been back to 4, soon to be 5 classes with the same individuals...definitely addictive, but so much fun!

Keep up the great work!

I love the futuristic, Jetson-y feel!  And way to get it done the night before, that sounds like something I would be likely to do, lol!  I'm sure they loved it!

I saw the tutorial for this today and immediately ran out to buy supplies!  I've never painted anything in my life (except in grade school) but I found this extremely easy and so rewarding to finish a project in such a short amount of time!  I did 3 today and have more lined up!

This one is going to be a wedding present for my friends getting married in June (in addition to a regular gift).  This was also the first one I did:

This one is a gift for my niece who is turning 1 in June.  I thought it would look better if I included some of her body rather than having her head floating in space, but it turned out weird...oh well:

And this one is made from the first pic taken of me and DH Smiley

Overall, I need to work on my boundary lines (like the last pic above our heads came out wonky), but I am having so much fun and am so thankful for your tutorial...I love this!

I made this quilt for a friend of mine who is due in a few weeks.  Her husband is getting deployed less than a week after her scheduled c-section at the beginning of June.  This is her 4th baby and she decided not to find out if it was a boy or a girl, although her husband did find out.  She had him text me with the gender so I could make a blanket accordingly, so she won't see this until she is at the hospital!

The bedding set they got is called "Tiny Paws" and I'm not sure if I can post a link to it (you can google tiny paws bedding and it is the first result on google), but it is cream and chocolate brown with paw prints.  They picked it in honor of her brother who passed away last year; he was a hunter and had once shot a black bear so that is where the paws come from.  I chose the camo binding for that reason and also since her hubby is in the Air Force.  So without further ado...

The top is flannel, and the back is minky which I will NEVER use for backing again - the back looks horrible and is all puckered even though I tried my hardest to go slowly and take my time with this whole process.  So you only get to see the nice corner Smiley

I debated whether or not I should use batting and I ended up not using any...the flannel and minky combination are plenty warm!

C&C welcome!

I love the colors and the pattern - and am also impressed that you did it all in a week!

Very cool!  I would love to make a dog bed but for the reasons listed above I'm afraid it wouldn't last long between our 2 dogs!  I wonder if it is a shih-tzu thing to unzip and unstuff?  Yoshi (profile pic) does that with our couch pillows and it drives me crazy!  Our other dog would probably just chew it up. 

But hopefully yours will let it stick around and fully enjoy it!

Hi guys,
I'm making a baby quilt for a friend of mine who is due in June - the top is flannel and the bottom is going to be minky.  My question is - should I still use batting or will that be too heavy/warm with the other fabrics?  Thanks!

That is a great way to incorporate the cross-stitch work from your mom!  And I think the green fabric looks fantastic Smiley  What a neat idea for a wall hanging!

I agree with the others - it looks like you've been doing it for awhile!  Very neat!
