Fox and Stripes Baby Quilt

Just wanted to share one of my new favorite quilts (I think I say that every time!). This aqua and gray fox baby quilt was lots of fun to make. All of the fox squares were originally going to be the same size. A shortage of fabric called for some creativity, though, so four of the fox squares got gray sashing. I think I like how it turned out more than I would have liked the original. Sometimes you just have to go with the flow.

Arizona Baby Quilt

I think I just finished my favorite quilt that I've ever made. This was my first time using Art Gallery solids (I usually use Kona) and I was impressed by their softness and beautiful color. I also really like this simple Greek Cross design and I think it lends itself well with the business of the fabric on the back. April Rhode's Arizona fabrics have been wildly popular in the quilting world. I'm glad on got my hands on some of it because I can see this one going out of stock everywhere soon.


I recently purchased a walking foot for my Bernina and this was my first time quilting with it. It's definitely a completely different process from quilting swirls with a darning foot, but I think it will get easier with time.


It's for sale in my shop.

Vive La France Quilt

Mom and I just finished up another quilt for the shop today. The design of this one is very simple, being just simple squares, by we used a mix of cotton and chenille to give this quilt something special. The chenille was a little tricky to sew on, but I love the extra softness and texture it gives.


The applique bunny on the back is chenille, too.


These topiaries are so petite and girly.


And there's matching burp cloths too!

Nautical Nursery

I just wanted to share this picture I got today of a nautical nursery with my sailboat quilt draped over the glider. It makes me so happy to see that my quilts are used and loved!

Monochromatic Geese Quilt

I finished up the black and white geese quilt this week and had to steal my niece for a few minutes tonight to take some picture of it.


Isn't she so sweet? Love that little girl.

This quilt was pretty easy to make. The flying geese came together four at a time and I sashed them with simple white Kona cotton. I want to do another one of these, but in a color family. Any thoughts what I should do?
