This quilt is beautiful and the quilting is fantastic!  Awesome.
42  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Little Button Picture Wall Hangings on: March 16, 2007 07:27:15 PM

These little wall hangings seemed to evolve all on their own. I started out by piecing the borders out of leftover cutout squares from some jordy bags I made a while ago. I then sewed them onto the center, white rectangle. After that, I was going to maybe add some yo=yo's or applique, but somehow I thought better of it and decided on buttons. I reached into my awesome vintage button collection (courtesy of Grandma) and picked out some coordinating buttons and waited for inspiration to strike. The designs in black are all free motion quilted - so much fun!

That Elmo shirt looks great.  I love how you used a shirt he already had!

Here's my red craft.  Well, partially red anyway:

It's a small purse with a little stuffed spider inside.  My sister sent me a thrifted sweater to felt, but it was only 30% wool.  Good for crafting with, but not really as a felt substitute.  It was perfect for this little project though.  Made entirely from materials I already had.  That would be more impressive if my stash wasn't embarrassingly large at the moment.  I need to not purchase anything new for awhile.  Wink

I made this baby quilt as a gift for an old family friend.  The Sunbonnet Sues are appliqud and embroidered by hand.  The piecing and quilting are done by machine.  Enjoy!

If you are interested, you can read more about this quilt on my blog.

The Back Says:

"This quilt was made for
Claire M_______
in Fairfax, VA
Christmas, 2006"

I always put where it was made and the date.  Sometimes I give the quilt a title and include my name.  I always include my name in a quilt that is a gift or for me.

This was a custom quilt for a one-year-old girl, with the expectation that she would enjoy it as she grew older (so, not too baby-ish).  It's  a lap-sized quilt and features free motion quilting done by me on my regular, old sewing machine.

No - no long-arm quilting machine here.  Just a regular old sewing machine Wink.

OK, I can't believe I was actually able to finish my rainbow project in time!!  This is a quilt I made for my 16-month old son.  He's really into colors and shapes right now, so I made this to hang on the wall.  Great for pointing and demanding to know what everything is.  It's a typical crib quilt type size, even though it's being used as a wall hanging for the moment. 

I had so much fun with this project!  It's made entirely from my stash (and most of it from scraps) and I didn't plan any of it out ahead of time.  I totally made it up as I went along, which is so different for me.  It was very freeing.

I think I will bookmark this one and use it as inspiration if you dont mind. 

Not at all!  Isn't that what this community is all about??

Did you use a pattern for it?  I really like the tilt of the squares.

Nope - I made the pattern up myself.
