Slice of Spring (Fresh Squeezed)

I really like orange! Slice of Spring was a fun, easy quilt to make using a layer cake and additional fabrics for corner stones, sashing, borders, binding and backing (Fresh Squeezed by Sandy Gervais). It is so bright and cheery looking.

Quilt Made From Selvages

I need help! I recently saw on someone's blog a cute quilt made with selvages (and maybe strips) -- sewed on a red background fabric. The center wasn't covered with pieces and it had a wonderful effect when the blocks were sewn together. Oh, it was SOOOO cute and I cannot find it again. :( Did you happen to see it? Can you help me?

Summertime fun for....

I have finished another. (remember, I have 11 to do by June!) I've titled this quilt "Summer time for...." I can't say the name because I don't want anyone to give it away. But this friend is going to be graduating from college and HATES cold weather and LOVES hot weather (I LOVE cold weather and barely tolerate hot, but we're still friends)

This quilt is from the Happy Hour book by Atkinson Designs. Great pattern that uses 12 fatquarters.

Here's another version I did a year ago.... all the fat quarters were from the same line of fabric where "Summertime Fun" is scrappy.

Down to my last drop...

In my four years of quilting I have NEVER paid
for this wonderful stuff.
Sullivan's Quilting Basting Spray

Nothing else will do.
I have 8 quilts to finish by June.
Anybody know where to buy it?
I don't mind buying a case.
Or two.

An idea for Julie....

Here's a wall hanging that I always hear nice things about. And it's easy! Measures 18" x 48". Should be easy to duplicate... but let me know if you need more details!

Help me with ideas...

I would like to make a small quilted item for a graduating dentist...perhaps a wall hanging? This gal has done a lot of dental work for me this year at the dental school, and she will be graduating and moving on to join a practice. Anyone have any ideas for something to make for her? Thanks!

Funny Chickens

This is a gift for someone... who I hope isn't looking at this blog...
but I couldn't wait to share my latest finished project.
and now I like it so much... maybe I'll just give her a sweater :)

I found these designs at FatCat Patterns

Roll it up!

I love quilted table runners and wall hangings
to change out with the seasons,
so here's a way to display all your
not-being-used small quilts.

roll 'em up and
put 'em in a basket!
