A Bunny Pillow Finish

Just In Time for easter

I have a lovely finish to show you today. These little bunnies are so adorable, so I decided to make a pillow to match The Littlest Bunny Quilt I made some time back. This fabric just speaks to me with its low volume goodness. The fabrics for this quilt and pillow were so easy to pick out, so many different fabric lines matched, so whatever I had I put in there. There are at least 25 different fabrics.

This is a 12×16  pillow cover. I had to play with the placement of the geese blocks to get them to look right but in the end I love where I put them!

 

 

I went a little crazy and took a million photos and couldn’t decide what to leave out. So this post is full of a few more photos then usual, I’m sure you won’t mind.

Happy Easter everyone.

Go Create Something Quilty,

 

 

This is the 2nd finish for the FAL Q2

Riley’s Finished Quilt

a very long time in the making

This one has been a work in progress for a little over a year to be exact! But the important thing was that I get it done for her birthday, and I did! Sometimes you just need motivation of a deadline to get things done. I have found I work a lot better with one, I seem to stay on task better. Continue reading

A Quilt for My Marine

Do something you love and understand

This is a special quilt for Cole.  I’m so proud of my son.  He knew he wanted to be a Marine at age eight.  As a mother it’s hard to know he may be in harms way.  He’s my baby, not a soldier.  When he left this fall it was a wakeup call for me to realize he was grown up and off to live his life.  The hardest part of being a parent is letting your children grow up, but I’ll try.

Voltron: A Finished Quilt for my Husband

Voltron Quilt

The Most important quilt I’ve ever made

That about sums up how I feel about this Voltron quilt.  Kevin has [not] been patiently waiting for almost five years for this quilt.  It started with something he had sketched out saying how it would be a great quilt.  And me giving him the look.  You know the one that says you’re crazy.  I had been quilting for a long time but I don’t venture past my comfort zone very often.  This time I did, for him.  No pattern just me making it up as I go.

Zig Zag Pillow- Finish it up Friday

Zig Zag Pillow

My First Finish of 2017

Well I have my first finish of the year! It’s not a big finish but at least it can be marked off the list! Yippee!  One of my goals for the year is to make a pillow to match every quilt I make.  It’s my way of using those scraps instead of just putting more in my scrap bin.  Which is way out of control, but I’ll get to that another time!
