1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Stacked coin baby quilt on: May 10, 2009 07:36:00 AM
I have a friend who is pregnant with her 5th baby and after she saw the other baby quilts I made she jokingly requested one for herself in blue and brown.  I'll be sending this to her next week as a surprise.

I had been itching to make a stacked coin quilt.

And the pieced back.  The binding is also pieced.  I think the binding is my favorite part. LOL  The back is cream colored muslin.

And the label.  I enjoyed embroidering a tag and will probably do that for all subsequent quilts as well. Smiley

Now to make the "Scary Monster" quilt my 3yo son requested.

Thanks for looking.
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Rainbow Baby Quilt on: April 21, 2009 08:04:43 AM
After seeing this quilt: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=301148.0
I knew I had to make one of my own.  This is a fabulous and easy idea with great results!!  I have a friend who will be having her 10th baby in July and I am not sure of the gender of the baby.  My friend Gretchen has a very bubbly, happy personality so I thought this was very appropriate.  My kids were very impressed with it too! LOL

It measures about 34 x 40.

The back is cream colored muslin.  I think this is my best free motion quilting yet.

One more of the front. Smiley

Thanks for looking.
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Log Cabin Embroidery Worked With Kids Quilt For My Dad on: April 09, 2009 08:21:47 AM
I don't know if any of you remember my other projects but I like to work on things with my kids.  They are always eager to help and it makes the gift that much more meaningful if it was a team effort.

There were the embroidered towels. 
And then the hand print quilt for my grandma.
Now the embroidered quilt for my dad. (Crazy 3yo boy not included)

This was made by Jessica, 9yo 10yo.

This is my work.

Junie (who is obsessed with ducks), 8yo.

Another one of Jessica's.

Here it is on the clothesline.  It is a full size and backed with a blue king size flat sheet I cut to fit.

Thanks for looking. Smiley
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Brick Path For Baby on: April 09, 2009 06:55:56 AM
I have a friend whose pregnant with her ...eighth baby??  And she knows the sex of the baby but won't share that information!!  So I was forced to create a gender neutral quilt.  I have wanted to try the brick path pattern since I saw it and now I had my chance.

This came together really fast and I had it completely done in less than a day (I spent the rest of the day oogling it).

The indoor pic is more true to the colors.

And on the clothesline.

Thanks for looking.
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Quilt for Grandma on: December 28, 2008 11:16:49 AM
This G-ma is actually my step father's mother although she never would have differentiated between biological grands and step grands. Smiley  Of her 4 grandchildren only two have children.  My cousin has one daughter and I have 12 children.  Ha!!  My cousin lives in AZ and I live in MO so I could not include her dd but the quilt is pretty full anyway.

I have 6 boys and 6 girls.

I freehand machine quilted each child's name.

The back.

Quilting detail.

Machine applique on the back.

Thanks for looking.
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Two sets of tea towels on: January 13, 2008 07:35:33 PM
My girls and I made these for my two Mother in Laws.  I just taught them so we could do this project together.  Here we are working on them.  Junie is 7yo and Jessica is 9yo.

Here is the Monday's Child set.

And the Birdhouse set.

Thanks for looking.  Jessica especially, loves embroidery work.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / CPH in WOTA Amethyst Heather (big pics) on: January 08, 2008 08:18:08 PM
My first sweater.  Made for my MIL and modeled by my 12yo daughter.

I didn't like how the cables met up on the top so I just stopped cabling about 2 inches from the top.

There are mistakes but I love how forgiving knitting seems to be.

The changes from the pattern that I made were ones I had read about here like closing the hood and picking up all the stitches for the ribbing at the same time.  I think it looks much nicer.  It is clearly a little large on my dd but will fit my MIL perfect. Smiley

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Central Park Hoodie on: December 26, 2007 10:46:18 AM

So here are my pieces blocking.  And actually now I have the hood almsot done and will start the button band today.  But my qestion is about blocking.  Dh says I should wash and block again once the sweater is completely done.  I also am wondering how to get my beautiful cables to puff back up after blocking.  If I wet or wash and then layflat will the cables poof and will the hood look great?
