Mommy and me... Finished!

We finished the quilt project today and my mom and I started
last week.  I LOVE it!  But sadly, we have decided to send
it to a better home.  I always miss my quilts when they leave.
I'm sure my brother and sister-in-law will take
very good care of it though :)

Mommy and me...

My mom is visiting from California
and so (of course) I thought we should make a quilt.

Really, it's her fault for buying me a
quilt magazine at Barnes and Noble today. 
And I wasn't even whining.
(not that I ever whined as a child)

The fabrics and pattern.

Grandma Zee
making her first "real" quilt.
sew, grandma, sew!

Stay tuned for the finished project!!

On a Whim

Found in Heather Mulder Peterson's book, Favorite Quilts From Anka's Treasures, "On a Whim" is a very basic and easy pattern. When I found this pattern, I was looking for a pattern I could use with this fabric (Kaye's Kitchen) by Kaye England. The quilt in the book was made with several different fat quarters of different fabrics and looks so pretty. (My picture is awful and doesn't do the pattern nor the fabric justice.)

For a rainy day...

First, I was going to make this quilt for my mother as she is from Ketchikan, AK which is one of the rainiest places on earth.

Then I was going to make it for my daughter who is returning home TOMORROW after serving an 18 month mission in Seattle, WA. Another very rainy place.

But then I made the quilt.
Sorry ladies... I guess I just don't love you enough.

Square Dance

I had wanted to make a quilt with black and white and lime greens and had been collecting the greens for a bit (I already had all of the black and white fabrics in my stash). So, when I found the tutorial for this quilt here, I just had to make it. Then, I got the name "Square Dance" from here. Since then, I have found that there are lots of different quilts named "Square Dance." The professor calls it "Geometry," so I may have to change the name of this quilt to that. Does anyone know what the "real" name of this quilt pattern actually is?
