11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Fanfare Baby Quilt #1 on: January 20, 2014 08:44:50 PM
A simple strip pieced flannel baby quilt for my cousin's baby.

12  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Halloween Crazy Quilt on: January 12, 2014 06:35:59 PM
I finished the top for this Halloween themed crazy quilt before Halloween 2013, but I didn't get it quilted and bound until this weekend.  So, I either finished this really early for Halloween 2014, or really late for last year.

The quilt features nine 12-inch blocks, with 2 1/2 inch sashing.  The total size of this little throw is 44x44 inches.

I'd love to know what you think.
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Weekender with Matching Makeup Roll on: January 07, 2014 07:29:30 AM
I made this weekender and matching makeup roll about a year ago.  I used a moleskin fabric and a linen with metallic print for the bag and the makeup roll.  You can see more photos, including photos of the construction process over on my blog. http://mouseinmypocket.com/2012/10/my-amy-butler-weekender-bag/

I'd love to know what you think.
14  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Sensory Frog Baby Quilt on: January 03, 2014 06:19:49 PM
I made this quilt when my friend Laci had her little boy.  The theme for his room was frogs, so I worked up this frog quilt with flappy legs and dragonfly wings, along with several different textured fabrics.

15  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / School Days Lap/Baby Quilt on: January 03, 2014 03:24:56 PM
This quilt was made using a charm pack of American Jane School Days fabric, paired with a dark blue print from my stash, and yardage of the School Days dot-to-dot fabric in manilla on the back.  The quilting for this was a tracing of the dot-to-dot designs on the back - a big thanks to my mother-in-law for being willing to do the hand quilting for me. I haven't the patience.

Leave a comment! I'd love to know what you think.
16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Aeroplane Bags on: January 02, 2014 04:51:59 PM
I made myself a regular sized aeroplane bag (pattern by Sew Sweetness) which I use for carrying around my gym clothes.  It's huge!  I can literally fit in my running shoes and every pair of running shorts, sport bras, and tanks I use for working out.

Because it was so big, I decided I wanted a smaller version to use as a bag. So, I made myself a half-sized version (by scaling the pattern to 75%).

17  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Yellow Spiral Quilt on: January 02, 2014 04:39:48 PM
This is a fun lap size/crib quilt that I made from a charm pack and some yellow yardage.  I started by making HSTs from the charm squares and solid, then laid the pieces out in a spiral extending out from an offset pinwheel.  The back of the quilt has a pinwheel set in directly behind the pinwheel on the front.

18  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Bullseye Quilt on: January 02, 2014 04:05:17 PM
This is the very first official quilt.  I made it as a gift for my sister's wedding.  The quilt fits well on a queen sized bed, and it made from 180 alternating blocks.  The blocks were made using 1.5" strips, each block finishing at 7", for a quilt measuring 84"x105" with a total of 2340 individual pieces of fabric on the front.

The back of the quilt is made with a batik jellyroll and two pieces of Kona Cotton yardage.

My ever-wonderful mother-in-law hand quilted, bound and appliqued and block with my sister's & her husband's name and wedding date on the back. She is amazing.

19  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Original Crazy Quilt on: January 02, 2014 02:11:47 PM
This project was my first crazy quilt.  The quilt contains four rows of six 12-inch blocks with 2" sashing between, and a center section measuring 44"x82", which finishes the quilt at 86"x104".  This first crazy quilt is much simpler than my later projects, as it incorporates very little hand work.

All the fabrics and orphan blocks in this quilt came directly from my scrap stash, which included lots of old clothes, and fabrics of different substrates.  It was interesting to see how they all worked together.

This quilt was sent to Cara of Cara Quilts to be machine quilted.

20  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Steampunk Crazy Quilt (lots of pictures) on: January 02, 2014 11:06:43 AM
This quilt and matching pillow case feature the Steampunk themed fabric "Victorian Dreams" from Timeless Treasures fabrics.  I fell in love with the panel, and knew it had to be a quilt, so this is what I came up with.  

The quilt features sixteen 12" blocks and thirty-two 6" blocks, with a finished quilt size of 48"x72".  The fabrics for this quilt are all cottons, with mostly poplin, though some shirting and home-decor weight fabrics were used.  Lace, ribbon, buttons, beads, and other embellishments, as well as hand embroidery were utilized throughout the quilt.

The finished quilt top was backed in a wool herringbone, hand tied, and bound using a plaid bias tape. I also added a sleeve to hang the quilt on my wall in front of our block glass window.

With some of my left over fabric, I made a matching envelope style pillow for the couch.  I'm hoping to have enough for one more.

I'd love to know what you think!
