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've been saving my daughters shirts for a tshirt quilt.  I really like this idea.  Did you use fusing or backing for the knit fabric?

I used a pellon fusible backing with a grid on it, made it much easier, like the kind they use for watercolor quilts. You can buy it regular or on-point, but they are 2 different products. If you leave a little space in between the shirts/fabric you can fold it along the line and just stitch right down the fold.

I used this robot coin pdf to stencil some e robots on my kids clothes

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.

Thank you for all the compliments.
Yes, I did quilt it myself. I actually quilted it and ripped it out a few times. I need to work on my quilting or more importantly my basting.
