11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / world map quilt on: April 06, 2015 05:05:22 PM

my aunt asked me to make a quilt for one of her coworkers, this one for a baby boy with a "travel" theme to their nursery.
i had some cute fabric already, but not enough to do anything with, so i hit up pinterest and found this super cute map quilt.
totally not my typical quilt making style, but i absolutely love the end result of it!
the worst part was printing out 30 pages of pattern, taping together and making individual pieces to cut out.  thankfully, my mom surprised me by doing that while i was out and about that day Smiley



more photos and such on my blog post!
thanks for taking a look Smiley
12  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / the coloradifornia cameras quilt on: November 16, 2014 09:27:11 PM

two states, one fantastic quilt
i visited my cousin in colorado this summer, and we found this AMAZING quilt store (that we happened to visit four times in the week i was there)
i had an idea for my sewvivor sewalong lap quilt, and after one visit, i knew exactly how to execute it.
the pattern was the vintage cameras quilt by carina gardner and with a few tweaks in size and colors, i made it my own!



this quilt got it's name by the camera fabrics being from colorado, and the background, border & backing all being from california Smiley
a whole lot more photos on my blog.  be sure to check it out here: toothpaste and orange cat

and of course, the cute minion that helped me pick out the colors & lay out my fat quarters after ironing Smiley
13  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / petite trellis on: October 19, 2014 02:07:55 PM

i spent a week of my summer in colorado, hoping to see my cousin's child firsthand...
that baby had other plans, but I was glad I was able to leave him a little something upon his arrival.
when she found out baby #3 was going to be a boy, i knew that meant super heros, but i also knew i had to work cats in there, just to bother her husband.
i remembered this fantastic kliban cat sheet i had seen on ebay for years, and so i purchased it to use as the back and found a great "petite trellis" pattern for the front.
this pattern was something new and different from the typical baby quilt colors & patterns i had done, and i loved it!

14  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / hexing around batik quilt on: October 19, 2014 01:52:29 PM

another little quilt from the sewvivor sewalong i participated in this past summer.
i used the hexing around tutorial from freshly pieced to create these blocks, and then sewed them together to form this mini quilt!
a simple stitch in the ditch was enough for me, and i love the quilting look on the back Smiley

15  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Fun With Flags on: September 29, 2014 05:14:21 PM
I recently wrapped up participating in family ever after's sew-vivor sewalong, and now have time to get to sharing the quilts on here!
the first challenge was nautical, and after much hemming and hawing over what to do, i realized all that came to mind was sheldon cooper's fun with flags.
i took that idea and ran with it, creating this little quilt using the bartholo-meow's reef fabric line.
oh how i wish it was much bigger!

16  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / classic pooh & friends cross stitch on: August 01, 2014 09:32:11 PM
hey friends!
hardy ever on the needle work section of this community, so when i have a post for it, it's quite a feat!
i decided that along with making a friend of mine this quilt for her baby, i would also make her a cross stitch to match her nursery theme of classic pooh.
i hardly ever finish a cross stitch, so deciding to do this was quite a task in itself.   oddly enough, i finished it WAY before the quilt was finished.
here are a few photos!

thanks for stopping by!
17  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / music themed triangle quilt on: July 31, 2014 10:47:06 PM
i wish i could come up with a much cooler name for this quilt, but i can't.
my siblings have gone to music camp for years, and this was year two of the camp deciding to have a quilt raffle to help raise money.
after trying to draw up inspiration, and then seeing waggonswest's alphabet blues quilt, i just loved the triangle idea.  i found a "quilt along" put on by the sassy quilter, and followed her directions as to how to achieve this quilt in a lap-ish size.  i followed the same quilting lines as waggonswest, and whelp.  here is the end result! (complete with cat fur that just would NOT go away)




as always, more (bigger) photos for this quilt over on it's own blog post.  click here for that!

18  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / winnie the pooh daisy chain quilt on: July 31, 2014 10:40:47 PM
hello again craftster!
time for another influx of completed quilts Smiley
this one was a gift for a dear friend of mine who just had her first baby boy.
i made her this quilt for her wedding back in 2011, and after much deliberation decided to do the same pattern but in smaller scale for her little man but in a boyish winnie the pooh theme to go with her nursery.  i couldn't be more pleased with how the colors flowed together, as well as not being too in your face about having disney characters all over it.

19  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / mod chevron baby quilt on: June 23, 2014 03:37:35 PM

i've done a handful of chevron quilts now, and when this momma told me that she liked "modern" designs versus your typical puppies & such, i hit up pinterest and found this gem.
i fell in love with the subtle chevron-ness of it, and the basic nursery prints (which were not my first color scheme, but it was my final one because nothing else worked) just came together perfectly.  the fabric on the back could not have been anything better, and i am just so thrilled with how this came together.
i would love to do this pattern again sometime, but i cannot vision it done in any other colors now.
perhaps it has become my one hit wonder for this pattern Smiley

20  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / "the modern baby" quilt on: June 17, 2014 10:14:37 PM

i inherit books & patterns every so often from my grandmother, and one of the last times i was there she handed me some freebie patterns she got from magazines that she thought i would get some use of since i have friends that are having babies.  when i got an invite to a baby shower, i turned to those and found this gem of a pattern.  simple, but fun, i am quite pleased with how this one came together quickly and awesomely.  this was the last of three baby quilts i started, but the first of three that i finished.  they've really helped me get my quilting skills perfected.  not brave enough to do anything fancy just yet, but getting closer to that step!
